Is Sappho's so called "Ode to Anactoria"
the first literary reference to limerence?
Coined in a book
by psychology professor Dorothy Tennov in 1979 and soon covered
by Time Magazine, limerence involves "intrusive thinking about the object of your passionate desire". Is it just a fancy term for callow infatuation or the unrequited love behind many great novels
and young suicides
? Whatever its reality, or corrosive effect, Tennov believed that central to limerence is "the desire for limerence itself".

On the internet, nobody knows the G-strings aren't yours. Or how murderously they infatuate. Or whom they're infatuating
