The period after the coup was the six weeks holidays, so I hadn’t yet been able to have my mind plagued with thoughts of LO and I hadn’t started my infatuation yet. Had I been still at school, it would’ve been the perfect time to go NC, but it my not knowing about limerence, I got back to school and didn’t make any attempt of it.
The first day I was close to her, I sweat a lot and was very nervous. That night, I didn’t sleep for 4.5 hours and dreamed of her for the remainder of the night. Through the holidays, I’d increasingly thought about her more and more and, without knowing it, I’d become infatuated with her. By the time I realised it, it was too late.
The way everyone is describing the coup de foudre, they seem to imply a sudden wave of limerence. However, this didn’t happen for me. I gradually became limerent after the initial coup.
Now I’m in the crystallisation phase (I think) on day #258 of LE#1. Hope it gets better soon!

My coup de foudre was similar to yours. It was the start of a gradual descent into limerence, not an immediate jump right in deep.
LO is M 37, my son’s former teacher
LC beyond my control
LE began in the fall of 2015
