You might know it as the popular song by One Direction but it is a real syndrome.
Stockholm syndrome is a syndrome that is gained during being kidnapped. You begin to gain positive feelings for that person usually of the opposite sex. The main reason for obtaining Stockholm Syndrome is the kidnapper telling the captor that they will no kill them or if they feed them on a regular basis.

The captor begins to feel grateful and think of them as a good person or even start to gain feelings for their kidnapper not wanting to be rescued.

When they are rescued they talk about their captor as good or even loving person.

Stockholm Sydrome is best song ever. Many songs are named Stockholm Syndrome but this one is by Muse, the best band in the world. This song was given #1 on a list of the best guitar rifts ever, so yes it is awesome. If you havent heard it or Muse, for that matter, listen to it right now (do you know how to use a P2P file sharing system?).
Person 1: Have you heard Stockholm Syndrome by Muse off of their album Absolution?

Person 2: Yeah!! Whenever I hear Matt sing "I wish I could," I feel like I'm in heaven
