Love Addiction!

Have you heard about the above???
Do you believe in this so called medical or psychological disorder called "Love Addiction" ?

Love addiction comes in many forms, from those love addicts who are obsessed with their lovers and cant let go or end a relationship or being excessively attached to another person, to those who get addicted or obsessed to the ecstatic effects or joys of romance.

I'm rather curious about those who are obsessed with the ecstatic effects of romance and those who want to be in a constant state of euphoria.

Apparently, people who are affected by this particular type of love addiction would court women...fall in love and once the fire fizzles away, dump his/her lover and start all over again with another.They only long for that initial feeling involved in courting someone and falling in love.Sounds strange but such people do exist.Looks like its a kind of intoxication for them :)

What do u think about this so called disorder?
Is it just a lame excuse given by flirts and casanovas or is this a genuine medical problem?

A DARKER side to this problem with regards to the other kinds of love addiction is that many suicides, murders, stalkings, rapes and other crimes of passion are said to have their roots in this addiction.

People who are addicted to love aren't really in love. Actually, they're in love with the idea of being in love.
