Have u ever obsessed about something?

Title says it all really.

I've always found that i have always been obsessed with things. not in a crazy way but in a greater than normal kind of thing.

First thing i remember was the TV show friends, then it was tennis, then i had an obsession with my height and other peoplsd height cos i'm quite short, then it was the Harry Potter books and films, then the lord of the rings films, i used to be obsessed with the british music charts listening ever week and writing it down.

Just wandering if anyone else has done the same?

For the past few years i'd say i haven't had an obsession but i still like the whole HP world.

GOOD LUCK IN 2016 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Re: Have u ever obsessed about something?

I think almost everyone on here has an obsessive personality, I definitely am obsessed with tennis, for almost two years now. Used to be video games, then NBA basketball, but I can keep up more than one at a time. I am also obsessed with indie music.

I just hope tennis doesn't die away

Re: Have u ever obsessed about something?

Have I ever obsessed about something? I don't think there's been a second of my life since I was 2 years old when I haven't been obsessing over something.

First was Boy George when I was 2 years old. I LOVED him. He had the prettiest hair and prettiest voice and was oh so colourful. I adored him. I was in love with him. We were going to marry. I thought he was a girl. So, I have been a lesbian since the age of 2... yay! I didn't want to know when I found out he was infact a Boy.

Then there was Kylie. Oh I loved Kylie. Had my hair permed to be like her.

When I was 7 I was obsessed with Karen Carpenter who was long dead by that point. I think I was so obsessed that I thought I was her at one point reincarnated. How bizarre! But that's me.

I've been obsessed with Neighbours for as long as I remember and shall always be so. Relate to this my current obsession with Natalie Bassingthwaighte. SHE IS SO HOT! I think about her most of the day. When I'm not thinking about other things I'm obsessed with.

Was obsessed with Take That. OMG! How odd! Me obsessed with boys. Didn't last long although now they have made a comeback I'm feeling a little lustful and I'm on the road to being obsessed with Gary Barlow. Perhaps he will turn me straight.

Became obsessed with Monica Seles when I was about 10 and that carried on until well... the present day. Although it's kind of "out of sight out of mind" at the moment. I recorded all her matches and played them over and over. And then it turned to lust and I was gonna marry her at one point. She didn't know about this though. Shame. I don't think I'm obsessed anymore but I still hold great affection for her.

Had a small obsession with Steffi Graf around 1995/1996. I was more obsessed with her ponytail. I wanted hair like that. So I had hair like that. Her ponytail was genius. So I guess yeah... I had an obsession with Steffi Graf's ponytail - not actually Steffi Graf as a person or player.

I've been obsessed with Sigourney Weaver since the age of about 12/13. Used to watch Gorillas In The Mist and Ghostbusters over and over. This is probably one of my biggest obsessions and the one that has run the most consistently strong over the years. It was at it's high point about 3 years ago when I had dirty thoughts about her most of the day. But now she's old and not hot. So the obsession is dying a little. Still appreciate her though!

Was obsessed with track and field athletics from about age 10 until I was 18 and got an injury stopped competing. Related to this is my obsession with Sally Gunnell. This obsession was big. And bad. Almost as big and bad as her nose. And I'm so ashamed. But it's okay. She was talented. I think I had a crush on her too. So wrong. I blame her for starting me on the slippery slope to lusting after not-so-pretty-women. Also had a small obsession with Kelly Holmes but nothing too bad.

Was obsessed with watching ER and Friends for a while.

Had a huge Celine Dion obsession. HUGE! HUGE! But not quite as huge as her chin. This obsession drained me of most of my finances. Saw her in concert 6836826316 times. Held her hand, told her I loved her, she said she loved me back. Bitch never calls or writes so whatever. Saw her in Vegas. OMG! Her show is amazing. Obsession has now died though. But I still appreciate her.

Had a Mariah obsession. This is a reoccuring problem but I'm okay with that.

Currently I'm obsessed with Emily Procter aka Calleigh Duquesne in CSI: Miami. She is so HOT! And pretty! And amazing. And she needs to meet me and marry me. Her smile makes me melt. Her accent is divine. She and I are meant to be. Why can she not see this?

Also I am obsessed with Marcia Cross. BREE IS SO HOT! Shame she's pregnant, it's putting me off a bit. I actually spent most of yesterday watching Desperate Housewives and lusting over Bree.

Oh and I have a weird obsession with the news at the moment. I watch it all the time. Have done for about 2 years. At least it keeps me informed. Related to this is my obsession with Lara Logan. How amazing is that lady? And talented. And fierce. And intelligent. And just Oh. My. God at her!!!! I want to be her. Cept I'm not as pretty. Maybe one day as I'm planning on a career in journalism.

So that's my story of what I have obsessed over. There are plenty of other things. Baywatch, 90210, Home and Away ------ oooooh! I had an Angel and Shane obsession from Home and Away for a while. That was fun. Yeah. I probably need help.


*edit*

I forgot my Michael Jackson obsession. It was quite big, this obsession. When I was around 9 I think I was in love with him. I would imagine that he'd meet me and fall in love with me and we'd get married. But then I was like "Nah that will never happen" cos I was only 9 years old. If only I knew. If only I knew that the reason I didn't have a chance with him when I was 9 years old was cause I was a girl and not cause of my age. I might have got a short hair cut or something. I'd watch his videos all day and every day. YAY!

Oh and I've just been reminded about TLC. I was obsessed with them in 1995. I even had my hair cut like T-Boz's. This was tragic. Looked cool on her but not cool on a young, young white girl. So, so tragic.
