The Five Stages of Nostalgia

  1. Joy - Wow, I remember this!
  2. Disbelief - This can't be it. Did I really like this?
  3. Defensiveness - Everyone had them. My mom bought it for me. I didn't really want it.
  4. Acceptance - It might not be exactly how I remember, but it's still neat.
  5. Enthusiasm - Hey, look at this!

For true lovers of nostalgia, you really need and stage six: obsession.

I agree with Bubblegumfink, For me it seems like there are only two stages these days, Stage 1 and then Stage 6, obsession.
