What are the symptoms of an obsessive love addiction?

It is important to be able to recognize the symptoms of an obsessive love addiction. One or two of these symptoms probably would not define you as an addict, but on the whole, if you answer most of these questions as ‘yes,’ then you should seek counsel.

Answer these questions as honestly as possible. Keep in mind that they are only a guide; one to be used as a measure of your love health.
  1. Do you feel the need to dress in such a way that no one would be able to tell you are hurting on the inside? In other words, do you tend to hide your feelings?

  2. Do you lack trust in any relationship?

  3. Are you depressed?

  4. Do you seek to control others by manipulating circumstances to your own benefit?

  5. Do you need a partner in order to feel worthy?

  6. Are you tolerant of excessive behavior?

  7. Do you have several addictions?

  8. Do you have an insatiable appetite in the area of sex, love, or attachments?

  9. Do you continually question values and lifestyles?

  10. Do you have a driven, desperate, frantic personality?

  11. Do you feel robbed of love from your childhood and harbor bitter rage or resentment towards your parents and siblings?

  12. Do you believe love is the same thing as sex?

  13. Do you live a double life? Or, do you act differently when you are with others than when you are alone?

  14. Do you leave a relationship only to immediately involve yourself in another?

  15. Are you right now, even with yes’s above, denying that you may have a problem?
  16. If you answered yes to many of the questions above, you need to seek help. There is a lot of help out there to bring you to a mature and natural relationship with others. This site is the first way you’ve chosen to seek help and that is a wonderful step to make. Would you consider speaking with a professional counselor about your addiction?
