A query on Yahoo! Answers: What exactly does "you're not in love with me, you're in love with the idea of me" mean?

(Disclaimer: this was never directed at me.)

The answer, obviously, is that it means, exactly, "I'm not into you, go away."

But, really, of course, any kind of infatuation is based in part on fantasy. But don't be dealing in absolutes! The key to happiness is for the fantasy to have enough of a basis in reality for reality not to interfere with your enjoying the fantasy.
