Ever feel like you may be addicted to love?
A love addiction is when we you perpetuate a romantic relationship (or the intense desire to be in a relationship) despite it being harmful to you.
Either obsessively focusing on their partner (in the hopes that this will keep their partner from leaving them) or fixating on how to get into a relationship.
As with any addiction, life can feel incredibly overwhelming and anxiety inducing until the underlying fear is subdued by the drug- in this case love or the intense search for love.
Yet, as with any drug, the buzz wears off and the addict is left in the same anxious, fearful state as before.
