Do you suffer from: Obsessive Love?


I'm sure that some of us have felt this way at some time in our lives: The obsessive love for someone esle. If you've every felt that way for someone, you know it hurts. So what is 'Obsessive Love"?

Obsessive love is a form of love where one person is emotionally obsessed with another.

Several top studies have been done and the conclusion is that 'rejection' is what triggers obsessive love - also known as love addiction or relationship addiction. They state four conditions to help identify it, namely, a painful and all-consuming preoccupation with a real or wished-for lover, an insatiable longing either to possess or be possessed by the target of their obsession, rejection by or physical and/or emotional unavailability of their target, and being driven to behave in self-defeating ways by this rejection or unavailability.

Two characteristics indicative of obsessive love are:

1:Obsessive lovers believe that only the person they fixate on can make them feel happy and fulfilled.
2:Persons close to the love-obsessed can also be greatly affected. Witnessing a friend or family member suffer from the disorder can be distressing.
