Chris and nostalgia
—Chris reminiscing on his High School days
The foundation of most of Chris’ adult life has been his fixation on the past, especially for things that have had deep significance to his life in order to escape from the present, whether it be through cartoons, interacting with past gal pals and sweethearts, or reminiscing past experiences with trolls.
The concept of the past
Although viewed as a mental disease when it was first discovered, nostalgia, in the modern age, is seen as a natural, common, positive emotion for escaping the confines of reality. Seeing how difficult it is for Chris to grasp reality as it is in its present, the way he grasps the past is unimaginably worse.
Chris' nostalgia comes from a wide variety of sources. It can be speculated that the main source of Chris' nostalgia in unhealthy amounts is his stress. At a psychological level, nostalgia is the result of negative feelings and results in the increase in of one's positive emotions. It can also be used as a coping mechanism for dealing with whatever stressful situation one may be in. Given how Chris currently lives his life, constantly dealing with weens, and being denied china by every girl she meets, Chris will always use his past experiences in a strange way to relieve his stress. For example, at the end of the Jessica Saga, Chris, feeling awfully depressed from losing his girlfriend, decided to contact Megan on her Facebook, and hook up with her again, even after having been accusing her of being behind his current situation for the past four years.
