Obsessive Love

Obsessive Love Is Extreme And Fanatical


Obsessive love is defined as a theoretical state of mind in which a person feels an irresistible and excessive obsessive desire to own or retain another person toward whom they feel a strong attraction. When one or both the parties in love are obsessive for each other, it is said to be obsessive love. Obsessive love is intense and extreme degree of love. Obsessive love is usually one sided.

Obsession is the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, or desire. Obsessive love is when one or both people have a strong desire for the other and such want is so strong that it feels like some mental illness or disorder. When one or both partners are obsessively attracted towards each other, it is called as obsessive love. Obsession is an impulse that forces its way into consciousness and is associated with mental disorder. It is a strong attraction or desire for the other.

Obsessive love is never desirable as it does not create healthy relationship and environment if it is one sided. Being obsessed takes away the freedom of being in relationship with each other as one or both the parties tries to dominate the other. Obsession is like being possessive of the other person to an extent that it robs the freedom to live happily in a good environment. Obsessive love is when one person feels a compulsive desire to be with another person. The feelings of infatuation or liking become so extreme that it becomes obsession for the other.

Obsessive love can be taken as a symptom of mental defect or irrational thinking. It becomes hard to accept failure or rejection to possess the love of that person. Obsessive love is often time categorized as a mental illness, but it is not officially termed as a mental disorder. Obsessive lovers often feel total inability to contain their extreme acts such as violence toward themselves or the other person.

When obsessive love becomes too extreme, it may involves violence, where one person tries to physically harm themselves or the other person. They wholeheartedly believe in their feelings of love, and often discard the notion that their crazy obsession is not real love. Obsessive love involve consistent thoughts of wanting every part of that person, be it spending time with that person or not letting that person see anyone else. Obsessive love is feelings of infatuation that are exaggerated and inflated, intensifying to the point of becoming obsessive.

Obsessive love may have addictive qualities as well. They isolate themselves from everything else and just focus on their love object to an extent that they lose the ability to do any other work. It love can be treated by psychotherapy and counseling can also help. Obsessive love has been glorified and romanticized in literature for centuries and ever since mass media came into existence.
