Maybe one of the worst things in love relationships is when people actually mix love with addiction. They believe they can’t live without someone but in fact, they are just addicted to them.
That’s why I decided to make a list of the most common signs of love addiction. If you see any of them, pump your brakes and think if you really want that kind of life. Do you really want to miss real love and live being addicted to someone?
1. You don’t feel good when your partner is not around
One of the most common signs of love addiction is that you feel bad when your partner is not around. If he left the house to go out for a drink with his guys and you feel anxious about what might happen, then you should know that you are addicted to him.
And the biggest problem is that he won’t realize what it means to be attached to someone like that. He will never be able to understand you and he won’t know how much you suffer when he is not there.
And you will totally lose yourself over the man who doesn’t love you as much as you love them. So, you better think twice if that is what you really want.
2. You are anxious that your partner doesn’t love you
You live in tremendous fear that your partner doesn’t love you as much as you love him and you are afraid he will leave. You believe he will find someone better than you and that all your insecurities he put up with for a long time will be the breaking point.
You think that your partner doesn’t show you his love because he is not sure about it and you blame yourself for that.
And, in all that mess, you forget to think about yourself and your needs and you end up disappointed every time.
3. You have sex with him just to keep him close
You don’t remember when it was the last time you had sex with him because you wanted it. Every time he wants to sleep with you, you show him that you are available and ready for action when, in most cases, you don’t feel like sleeping with him.
And, I must say, this is totally wrong because you won’t make him stay just because you have sex with him. He will stay because he loves you and because he can’t live without you.
So, if you want to have a happy love life, I suggest you take care of yourself more and don’t do things that you don’t want just to please your man.
4. He is your only reason for happiness
If you are happy only when you are in presence of your man then you should know it is not healthy. I mean, it is nice when you feel nice with your loved one but if nobody except him can make you happy, then you have a problem.
You shouldn’t allow your relationship to be in the only focus in your life so you neglect everything else. Instead, make your priorities and pay attention to your friends and family as well. Only if you spend time with different people can you grow and learn from them.
And, not to mention, you will be more satisfied and pleased about being able to be with all the important people in your life.
5. You are sick jealous when he is surrounded by other women
In normal situations, you wouldn’t be so jealous but in this one, you are transforming into a wild beast when another woman approaches your man.
You simply don’t have enough self-esteem and you think that she might steal your man away from you. If something like this happened to you, just know that it is a sign of love addiction and not real love.
In real love, you should be at peace with everyone who comes close to your man but, in this situation, you are transforming into someone you never thought you would be and that is bad.
6. You can’t imagine your life without him
It is okay to depend on someone for certain things but if you are totally depending on your man, it is not a good sign. It means that every change he goes through will affect you and in some cases, it won’t be a good way.
If you feel you can’t live without your partner next to you, you should know that something like that never ends well.
Having someone to rely on and to support each other is good but to be dependent on your man is simply something you shouldn’t do. In a situation like that, you will forget yourself and you will pay a lot more attention to your partner. which in the long run, is a bad idea.
7. He is like a drug that consumed all of you
If you feel like you need your man the most in the world and if you can’t imagine your life without him, it is a serious sign of addiction. He is like a drug that you can’t live without and every day that feeling consumes you even more.
You should try to put a stop to a situation like this and cool down. You need to know that you should put yourself first and that a partner needs to earn a place in your life.
And, even if he is the best partner you can wish for, you shouldn’t neglect yourself because of him. If he is the right one, he wouldn’t want that as well.
