Default Would you let this keep you from applying for for a job

I'm looking to move up in the world. I want to apply for a job, but I'm attached to someone who works there. I like the hours because it enables me to go to college and work part time at another job. I meet all the requirements except for one. I feel the job would be good fit because I'm interested in multi media and I hope to intern at marvel studios. This would give me the mother experience I need to get the internship

How should I handle working with her. I not proud of the way I feel towards her. I working on accepting that love addiction is just like any other addiction. It will always be there and sometimes activated.

Tough question. In regards to the lady: I read somewhere that people with a high level of willpower are actually exercising the characteristic of not putting themselves in a situation where they can be swayed into reaching for the cookie jar -- they never buy a cookie jar. Not really sure if that applies to you, but it seems to fit, if only tangentially.

Are there other places you can apply for a similar multi-media internship?

As a person who struggles with attachment disorders, my advice would be NOT to work closely with someone you realize triggers your attachment disorder -- at least not until you have enough therapy under your belt to understand the potential danger that exists in becoming too attached to someone who likely is not able to meet your emotional needs. You need to know the red flags and be able to resist that temptation.

I would still go for the job and hope love blossoms.
