The key thing (yes, key) about an obsession is that it must be done right, to the point of perfection. If you are lucky enough to have a partner that takes pride in doing things well, and they want this kind of fantasy, be strict. There is nothing worse, for an obsessive, than seeing a job done poorly. It is even worse that not even starting the job.
Saying that, the obsessive must realise and respect the existance of the learning curve. Patience is a virture. Really! Never be afraid to ask a stupid question, as it is more stupid not to ask it.
Once you get through the learning curve, you'll be here...
