I figured out a while ago that when in love, I tend to create an image of the other person in my mind and that's really what I'm in love with. Sometimes that image is very accurate and the relationship is correspondingly pretty healthy, and sometimes it's not very accurate at all.

I think most people do this. Tony (my partner) and I have joked about this: in my mind, he loves pancakes. And in his mind, I love...um, nevermind. ;)

(yes, it can be a bad thing when reality != fantasy....)

I agree. Fantasy sure is fun, but when reality hits I am always so disappointed. I think remembering what is real and what is not is key to having happiness. It is good to have a fantasy world, but don't get attached to the idea that everything will be as you imagine it to be.
