> Is it real love that I'm experiencing?

My point of view is slightly different from Racer’s… I think you *are* experiencing real love. But I agree with Racer that you don’t know much about Dr Bob… so the love you feel probably isn’t the kind of love a person feels for a long term partner or a very close friend.

Still, I think it’s love. I think it’s the sort of love people feel for a new friend or a new partner. And since you don’t seem to feel such intense feelings for other people in your life, I think it’s a healthy thing that you have come to love Dr Bob so much. Perhaps real-life love is a bit scary to you and perhaps Dr Bob represents someone safe: you can love him without getting involved in a very intimate relationship. Perhaps you’re learning what love feels like for you. Having the capacity for love is a very positive thing.

Just my two cents…
