These people are a little too obsessed with watching television

There's nothing wrong with indulging in a really great TV show from time to time. While it's important to maintain a somewhat legitimate social life, it's undeniable that scheduling a date with the television set to cuddle on the couch with a heaping plate of Chinese takeout can easily compete with a real-life dinner date. That being said, some people enjoy watching television so much that it becomes a full-on obsession for them. Several people took to Whisper, the popular app that provides an anonymous platform for people to share their most honest thoughts, to reveal their TV obsessions.

It can give people a sense of meaning:
All my TV shows are starting up towards the end of the month.  My life has meaning again.

Sometimes it makes people lose touch with reality:

People's favorite TV casts become like family to them:
I am more attached to my TV shows list than my family at this point of my life

Keeping up with new shows can feel like a legitimate responsibility:

People find themselves literally revolving their lives around television:
I literally plan my entire day around my TV shows, I need to get a real life

Love can come in many forms:
I love TV, I mean out of everything, I'm in love with TV

Some people give up necessary sleep to fit in more TV time:

TV can feel like a good friend sometimes:
Sometimes I feel like my television is the only one listening.

It provides an often much-needed escape:

Some people prefer indulging in their fantasy lives to pursuing real relationships:
These days, I don't want to date anymore. I'm happy with television.  Television is a much better partner than real people.

The willpower to stay away from TV can be overrated:

"I can't, I have plans":

The television screen might be the only place where true magic exists:

People let the addiction get so far that they sometimes confuse TV with reality:
I get obsessed with TV shows way too easily and my reality is blurred.
