Paranoia is an irrational feeling that people are out to get you (in a bad way). But what's a term or phrase for a situation where it irrationally feels like people are giving you positive attention or are harboring positive thoughts or intentions for you?
I'm looking for something for the following situation:
Maybe I'm being paranoid, but since I cut my toenails, I feel like every girl in here is checking me out.
I'm leaning towards "delusional", but that also has a slight negative tinge to it, so I'm seeking other options. I especially like options that come from literary/cultural allusions if I come across one, like:
Maybe I'm having a <insert some character who has experienced a similar situation> moment, but since I got that bikini wax, I feel like every girl in here is checking me out.
Or maybe some idiom or foreign expression that I can add to my linguistic repertoire:
Maybe I'm experiencing a little <insert some French expression>, but since I deodorized this morning, I feel like every girl in here is checking me out.
