I had SUCH bad thoughts when I read this subject line...

------------------
"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

Maybe it was a 'kick' and you've gone off it. There was this boy in my high school I was so hung up on, and I felt so strongly about, then one day I looked at him and felt nothing. Sometimes that happens. Does it have anything to do with him not looking as good as he did during the tour (I've been feeling that, he's cut some of his hair, wears different sloppier clothes and he isn't looking as pretty and cool as he did a few months ago) or could it be because the excitement of the tour is over? Is there another man in your life?

Another possibility:

Sometimes the U2/Bono fandom just kind of dies down after awhile. I've been like this, so I took a bit of a break from PLEBA to make everything seem fresh and new again -- and it is working. I definitely like PLEBA a lot better, and am enjoying it again, and I love Bono just as much as ever. So.. maybe you should put your CDs and posters and tapes and such away and take a break -- say a month or a couple weeks -- and see if it works.

It's not cos he's had his hair cut or anything. I don't think how arrogant he seems to have been resently has made me too impressed with him. I don't think he's bad looking just there is no feelings there infact the other da I cringed when I saw him because he was being arrogant

So you still think he looks hot, and you still like the music, it's the way he's acting? Is it his ego, the political stuff or something else he said?

I'm a little confused... what was he doing that was arrogant? I mean, he is usually pretty self-confident, even bordering on arrogant at times ( I think even he would agree with that, too)...so, what specifically was he doing or saying? This could just be a stage you're going through. You could snap out of it at some point & go right back to drooling over him again.
Ya never know.

Bono has said in interviews that sometimes he will see his pic in a paper and say "Oh not that fuckin guy again". Sometimes over exposure does cause a bit of backlash. It is not bad, just give your self a break. Listen to other music and by fall when the Best of 90-00 comes out you'll be refreshed and ready for U2 and Bono.

I agree - a break is needed. So who do you want to obsess over Edge, Larry or (my personal choice) Adam for awhile?

Share the love UV!

LMAO OTE

AWW poor UV *huuugs*
Girlie, I hope his time will pass for you. Few days back I kinda lost track and felt completely attracted to Larry. I couldn't help it, but now I believe I recovered for that awful (yes it was awful) experience.

I still love Bono no matter what. I accept the way he is and I always will. Hope you soon come back on track

Don't be feeling bad, UV... the same happened to me, for a while I almost stopped loving Larry... I was almost turned into a Bono girl... (gasp)

But one day I sat back and realized the beauty that is Larry, and the beauty that each of them has, and it's alright to be unsure, to question, because we still love you and you know you will always love Bono in your heart, no matter what your head is telling you.
