I agree. I think it's real love too. I think if there was a way to "see" what love is like in the brain using some sort of imaging, that my brain would show real love.

>But I agree with Racer that you donít know much about Dr BobÖ so the love you feel probably isnít the kind of love a person feels for a long term partner or a very close friend.

I completely agree. I think the love I feel is more like the love I had for my stuffed toy friends or Hammie.

> Still, I think itís love. I think itís the sort of love people feel for a new friend or a new partner.

I don't really think that's the sort of love I feel. Dr. Bob is not new to me.

> And since you donít seem to feel such intense feelings for other people in your life, I think itís 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.

Yep. He's safe. He has *very* strict boundaries I found out. I think it'll be interesting to compare Dr. Bob with DocJohn on PsychCentral and think about why I don't love DocJohn, even though they are both administrators.
