Yes, we opened our computers early in the morning looking for new RPatzz and Taylor photos, checking out more sites for any twilight-related news... at the end of the day, some of us sometimes come home, grinning ear-to-ear, bringing new Twilight loot for our special Twilight section/room in our house...
Okay, some may have gone overboard while some are what we call "twilight closet people" (if there's a thing like closet gays for boys), but the issue of Twilight affecting our relationships with others???? That's just so.... Well, after reading this post from Movietalk, I can't help but say "I really don't thinks so.." and "It depends to some people..." This has been a long-running issue after Twilight came out, but, what's your say to this?
Yahoo Movietalk - With fans turning the area outside the Nokia theater in LA into a tent city of the Eclipse premiere, the Los Angeles Times examines the phenomenon of fans whose lives are upended by their fierce love of the vampire books and movies. The Times found women who have nearly lost their marriages by neglecting their husbands in favor of "Twilight" fan sites, blogs, and message boards. One woman gushes that she's seen the movies "over 300 times."
Twilight addiction proliferates on the internet,where a fan can take any of hundreds of quizzes to self-diagnose their condition, and websites sell hand-made crystal-encrusted T-shirts that say "Twilight Mom." Some "twi-mons" as they're known, have even argued that their love of Edward and/or Jacob has actually imporved their marriages.
"If there is a chemical that's released when you're falling in love, your brain has it when you're reading or watching 'Twilight.' You get that utopic feeling of first love and you want to experience it over and over again," one 50-year-old former engineer who has experienced her own "Twilight"-related marital problems, said. The names "Bella," "Jacob," and "Cullen" are climbing the popular-baby-name lists every year as more and more parents make their "Twilight" fandom a permanent part of their families.
While the phenomenon of life-altering "Twilight" obsession is mostly confined to women and girls, the Internet reveals that even some men are falling victim to the vampire love triangle. "How do I go about combating my husband's 'Twilight' addiction?" reads one desperate plea on Yahoo! Answers. "He even has a Team Edward sparkly shirt."
It seems that the super-fandom known as "Twilight addiction" always reaches a fever pitch, at least in the media, right before a new movie in the franchise is released. With New Moon, we learned that "Twilight" mania wasn't just for teen girls, but their moms as well. With "Eclipse," we're seeing grown-up married men afflicted by the obsession.
For me, it doesn't change anything at all... my husband supports my Twi-obsession... :D
