Advice for the loveworn

Jay Solo has been there:

[B]ecoming particularly interested in someone stresses me out so severely that a few years ago I made myself stop getting in that situation. Obsessing but being incapable of acting was so self-destructive I had to make it stop. I simply avoid getting interested, truncating anything more than the observation "she's cute."

A path I should follow, except that I've discovered that trying to become uninterested in someone stresses me out severely — which means that I tend to hang on until, you should pardon the phrase, a change of heart.

But damn, she's cute.
