“If she likes [someone], she can be extremely, noticeably awkward in her attempts to let [them] know, e.g. she may stare when she sees [them] or call [them] repeatedly. This is because she fixates and doesn’t understand societal gender roles. This will change with maturity.” I have always been the queen of coming on too strong. I definitely fixate on those who I find attractive, whether aesthetically or in a friend sense. This has been fun sometimes, but if I fixate on a toxic person, it can be dangerous. Unrequited or manipulative responses have been especially painful. I’ve definitely learned how to calm this down as an adult, but I catch myself by surprise with a new fixation from time to time.
