Is it possible for one to be in love with the feeling of being in love, instead of loving the person you believe you're in love with?
The feeling of being in love is certainly lovable. And it seemspossible that one could love the feeling of love that one gets fromloving a particular person more than one loves that person.And it seems that one could believe that one loves a particular person,yet fail to really love that person, but because one believes that oneis in love with that person, one has the feeling of being in love withthat person. In such a situation, it seems, one could really love thefeeling of being in love with a particular person but not really love theperson. So, yes, I don’t see why not.
