Symptoms of Love Addiction

Do you find yourself going from one painful relationship to another?  Do you feel desperate about ever finding someone to love?  Often love addicts report these symptoms.  Additionally, people report feeling afraid of rejection, afraid of being hurt, fearing new situations and feeling like they will never get what they want.

Love addicts often become sexually co-dependent meaning they feel they have to have sex with someone in order to be loved or loveable.  Here are some general symptoms to look out for:

Love can be “addictive” when it…

  • Is all consuming and obsessive
  • Is inhibited
  • Avoids risk or change
  • Lacks true intimacy
  • Is manipulative, strikes deals
  • Is dependent and parasitic
  • Demands the loved one’s devotion
