One thing that a lot of young book and movie nerds can relate to is falling in love with a fictional character. That may sound weird to the normies, but it is a very real side effect of being a fangirl/boy. It's just a part of nerd culture at this point. Here are some examples of fictional characters that real life people have fallen for.
