One of the crazy things about the internet are the relationships one can develop with people around the world, people one has never met. Or perhaps I should say the relationships you think you have with people. Relationships that, perhaps, in reality are only relationships in one's little brain.
There are a few people right at the moment that I have serious internet crushes on!
The Whole 9:
Melissa and Dallas (of course, we're on a first name basis), run a program called the Whole 9 that's all about eating good, healthy, unprocessed food. Actually, their program goes well beyond nutrition, they also write about sleep, a bit about exercise, reducing stress, and generally living the good life in a semi primal fashion. In short, they believe everything I believe, except they have things like degrees in nutrition and physical therapy, so they can actually talk about their lifestyles in an intelligent fashion (when I try to explain why it's good to eat/live how I live, I quickly forget every scientific fact I have read about the issue and end up babbling a bit). In addition, they cool and super cute and do bad ass things like spend 6 weeks in Mexico writing a book. In short, their lives seem pretty dreamy. AND, they post of Facebook all the time. So if you 'like' them on FB their posts show up on your page regularly, adding to the notion that they might actually your friend AND giving the impression that they are communicating with ME!
The Clothes Make The Girl:
Here's what Melissa says about herself on her blog 'I’m on a mission to be a superfit, well-fed, dressed-to-kill, glossy-haired, rock-n-roll, tart-tongued detective.' She does crossfit, she used to play roller derby, she's eats like I eat AND she's a great cook who makes up awesome recipes. In fact, she's such a great cook she just wrote a cook book. (Which, of course, I ordered the day it came out so I could seem cool. Plus, I've made a couple things from her blog and they are truly amazing.) And, she's nice. When you make the occasional comment on her blog or FB page she always responds and she's super sweet.
I'm sure if I actually met these people we'd be best of friends, right? They would quickly see how insanely awesome and cool I am. Unfortunately, at the moment, I merely one of thousands of love struck fans.
Hmm, I wonder how many of my (14) followers are staggeringly in awe of me..........
