Right? Like how can a sane person be this obsessed with someone they don't even know?
"Celebrity worship syndrome" I'd say
But it's not surprising at all when companies sell this fantasy to fans only for profits, but fans are so delusional that they can't see that they are just being used. All the portrayal of idols being innocent, the dating bans, "I'm dating my fans" "my fans are everything" and everything in between these lines just feed these people into beleiving they can actually have a chance. Even grown ass adults buy into this fantasy, so I blame companies more than anything else.
