The signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder in love include:
* Fixation with a person who they believe holds the key to their happiness and fulfillment.
* The onset of tunnel vision, where the person cannot think about anything else except possessing the other person.
* Onset of neurotic and compulsive behavior like rapid telephone calls to the lover’s place of residence or work.
* Stalking them either physically or through varied social networking mediums in order to keep tabs on them.
* When in a relationship, displaying certain telltale signs like becoming suspicious of their partner, resenting their relationships with others, accusing them of cheating…
* ‘Driveways’ around a love interest’s home or place of employment, with the goal of assuring that the person is at where he/she said they would be.
* Physical monitoring of their activities by following them throughout the course of a day to discover their daily activities and whereabouts.
* A sudden loss of self-esteem or feelings of guilt and self-hatred.
* Denial that the relationship has ended. This is usually followed by attempts to win a loved one back by making promises to change.
* The use of drugs, alcohol, food or sex to mute the emotional pain.
* Anger, rage and a desire to seek revenge against a love interest.
