I'm new here and have just been lurking thusfar...
But I just wanted to say I get all excited when people talk about limerance because my roommate's grandmother was the person who studied/coined this word!
I remember hearing an interview with her on NPR like 5 years ago, so its kinda weird that I live with her grandson now
