I've been there, I know what you mean. Sometimes you think you may know about a person, even after talking to them, and in reality you know very little about them, but usually by then it is too late to control your fantasies.
As the weeks have gone by, and not seeing *her* for a long while, I suppose you start to think about them less and less. Even though remnants of them still remain in your head, you don't seem to feel you are as "crazy and delusional" as you once were.
