Romantic addiction

Because romantic love is regularly associated with a suite of traits linked with all addictions, several psychologists have come to believe that romantic love can potentially become an addiction.

Romantic addiction is being in love with love rather than paying attention to what is actually happening between the person and the object of his affection.

The Love Handbook for Singles by Nancy Joy Carroll listed the ‘danger signs of romantic love’:
*Having a compulsive drive for love to the point that a relationship is based on need rather than choice.
*Spending considerable time thinking about another person; giving excessive time and attention to him or her. *Wanting a partner to prove love in unrealistic ways; expecting a partner to fulfill all of one’s needs.
*Feeling devastated when a relationship ends.
