Do you feel like you keep attracting the wrong kind of relationships, repeating negative patterns in each one?
Do you find yourself attracted to distant, emotionally unavailable partners?
Do you feel yourself becoming obsessive about your relationships, often neglecting everything else in your life?
Are you always in a relationship because you don’t want to be alone? Even staying in a bad relationship or going back to your ex because it feels better than being alone?
Does the thought of rejection and abandonment make you feel anxious, desperate?
Do you have brief, intense relationships or long relationships that tend to be high passion, high drama, tumultuous or toxic?
Do stable, drama free men/women seem boring to you?
Do you get bored in a relationship once the amazing feelings of the “honeymoon phase” fizzle out? Maybe jumping from relationship to relationship, or even cheating, to get that feeling back?
When apart, do you find yourself just “killing time” until you can be with your partner again…making everything about him or her?
Do you find yourself canceling plans with friends or family just to be with your partner, or no longer making plans with anybody else at all anymore?
If these questions resonate with you, I want you to know that you are not alone. Love or Romance Addiction is common. And you may be thinking, “yeah, some of this sounds like me, but I don’t have an addiction”. That may be true, and to be honest, I don’t particularly like the term Love Addiction, but if you’re having issues with your relationships, it could help to look at some of these reoccurring patterns.
Treatment for Love Addiction helps to increase your confidence and self esteem. It helps you develop healthy patterns in relationships and acquire appropriate boundaries. It improves your coping skills and allows you to truly find a sense of self, without needing a partner to make you feel happy or loved.
It doesn’t have to be like this forever, I can help. Give me a call and let’s set up a time to see if working together feels right, I’d love to help.
