If you’re into relationship content on TikTok, you’ve probably come across a new term that’s making waves in the dating world – delusionship. It might sound daunting but don’t worry, you might be more familiar with it than you think. Ask yourself some questions: Do you daydream a lot about someone you’re not officially with? Are you fantasizing about a life with someone you haven’t even been on a single date with yet? If any of these sound like you, then you’re probably in a delusionship.
Defining a Delusionship
Bumble’s dating coach, Dr. Caroline West, describes it as the infatuation you have for someone with whom you don’t have an established relationship. It could be the person you see every morning on the train or someone you’ve matched with on a dating app but haven’t met up with yet. Essentially, a delusionship is just a modern way of saying you have a crush. If you’re concerned that your delusionship might be a toxic habit, relax; Dr. West assures that it’s not inherently bad. It’s perfectly fine to daydream about potential relationships. Think of your delusionship as a way to test the waters with that person, exploring if you might be a good match.
The Fine Line
However, Dr. West advises being cautious not to get carried away with idealizing the relationship or the person you’re infatuated with. The reality might not match your delusional perception, and it’s essential to keep that in mind. Bumble sees the trend of delusionships as a positive one, coinciding with an overwhelmingly positive outlook on dating. Many Gen Z singles on Bumble are seizing the date and feeling optimistic about romance that lies ahead. So, if you enjoy occasional delusionship fantasies, fear not; it’s all part of exploring potential connections and feeling confident in your own desirability. Just remember to stay grounded in reality when the right person comes along.
The 1980s legendary actress Sigourney Weaver is still going strong in the show business, even after crossing seventy. The 72-year-old Weaver says that she has no intention of quitting acting anytime in the near future. The Working Girl actress sat down with fellow industry colleague Elizabeth Banks for an interview where she stated that she’s enjoying acting more than ever now.
Banks, who is an actress herself, has worked with Weaver in Call Jane. Sigourney Weaver unveiled her future plans and dreams, saying that she currently has five projects in the pipeline. One of them is the much-awaited December release Avatar: The Way of Water. Weaver further says that she doesn’t mind that she might be the senior cast member on a set, even though every time she is one, she has to go through a moment of surprise. However, acting allows her to let herself live, even at 72, and it’s the most exhilarating thing for her.
The Journey So Far
The beginning of weaver’s filmography dates back to the 1970s. It was Peter Weir who introduced her to movies. The two had an enjoyable relationship and had much to talk about. The actress learned a lot from the retired Australian director. She received her big break playing Ellen Ripley in Alien, after which she starred in several sequels for the same franchise and made appearances in other movies such as Gorillas in the Mist and Ghostbusters. Her award-winning movies include The Ice Storm, for which she won a BAFTA, and Working Girl, for which she won her second Golden Globe. Over the years, the three-time Oscar nominee has worked on close to 70 film productions, from live-action horror to providing voices for animated family films. However, the actress has stated that if she could travel back in time and visit only one set from a movie, it would be The Year of Living Dangerously from 1982.
