Love Addiction is nothing more than a unique way of regulating your emotions… its consequences can have a devastating effect. Love Addiction usually involves a pattern of frequent relationships that often begin with intense passion and which end relatively quickly. A variation of this is the involvement in long-term relationships with dramatic highs/lows, thus simulating a similar range of emotions as that found in short-term relationships. Often, these relationships are staggered, with multiple, simultaneous relationships taking place at different stages within the unique pattern. As the pattern continues, the negative impact that the “low cycles” have on a person’s esteem becomes greater and greater. Those involved in a pattern of love addiction do not typically pursue this knowingly. It is their absolute belief that the person currently targeted is the one that was ‘meant for them’ and that they will be together for the rest of their lives. In fact, it is in this exact thought process that provides so much comfort and relief.
