1) What is one-itis?
One-itis is defined as an infatuation with another individual who does not return those same feelings. One-itis victims can usually be seen pining over a single individual, constantly overanalyzing every situation, and asking his friends what he can do “to get this girl”.
2) How do you get over one-itis?
Step 1- Delete her number and name from her cell phone. If she calls, tell her you “have to do … I’ll talk to you later.”
Step 2- Get rid of any pictures of her. You’re only defeating yourself by keeping them around.
Step 3- Delete your e-mail transactions and her messager screenname, in addition to any online connections that you may reach her at. Don’t block her. You don’t hate her; you just don’t care anymore. She is not special.
Step 4- Avoid places that she frequents for a period of time. If you work with her, that’s your fault for getting involved with your coworker.
Step 5-You’re not angry at her; you’re just moving on to bigger and better.
Step 6- Surround yourself with friends. Sarge immediately. Check out RSD’s Hot Seat at Home.
3) But what if she’s special; she’s different; she’s perfect for me?
There are 3.5 billion women out there. So you just coincidentally tripped and fell into “the one”? There’s a statistically higher chance of being struck by lightning three times than that being your “one special girl”.
4) Then why is she “perfect” for me?
Because males tend to rosetint and accentuate positive characteristics of women they feel they have a chance with. Try being critical of her one day. Notice how she sports lovehandles, or has no common sense.
5) But I feel I have a chance …
She was either nice to you once or is still nice to you, but won’t have sex with you because she likes feeling wanted. Thus, she likes having you around so that she can feel sexy, but she’s not going to have sex with you. Don’t feed her ego and kick yourself in the balls day in and day out. She’s not special. You, on the other hand, are special, because when you realize that you can get ANY girl, one single girl means nothing to you.
6) How can I make sure I never get one-itis again?
Unlike what you would normally do in most situations (stop talking to women altogether), the goal here is to remain in contact with as many women as possible. This allows you to keep a “there’s always more fish in the sea” perspective.
