Example text

Therefore, to many of us, love addiction and codependency were one in the same. However, today we understand that this is not true. The codependent love addict is only one of the many kinds of love addicts. I have chosen the occasion of the 2005 edition of Addiction to Love to elaborate on this. I call the “classic” love addict an Obsessed Love Addict. Obsessed Love Addicts (OLAs) are totally taken over by their romantic passion and chase after people even if they are unavailable, emotionally distant, afraid to commit, unable to communicate, unloving, abusive, controlling, selfish, or addicted to something outside the relationship—hobbies, drugs, alcohol, sex, someone else, gambling, and so on.

This is the darkest side of addiction to love—the inability of some love addicts to even protect their children from an abusive partner because of their unhealthy dependency. While most love addicts will not end up breaking the law in the name of love, the hungry heart should not be underestimated. Addiction to love is insidious and progressive; anything can happen if recovery is not initiated. When a crime is committed because of obsession and dependency, love addicts pay a heavy price. Sometimes they must spend all or some of their lives in prison.

Does fantasizing take priority over your family and friends? Do you brush aside your children to go off by yourself and daydream? Do you snap at people who interrupt your fantasies?
