Love addict?? - December 29th 2009, 01:55 PM

Ok so im not exactly sure but i think i may be a "love addict" ...it seems weird but i read up on it and it sounds alot like me. I think im addicted to the feeling of like someone loving me n needing me. I cant be without a relationship, when im not in a relationship i feel like im nobody. Ive had sex with too many guys , everytime im having sex with a guy i dont like to think of it as f*cking but more of "making love". I love when a guy is soft n gentle with me. I get used alot , I get attached very very fast like i will be with a guy for 3 days n think im in love n cant live without him. and when i do get dumped ill find another relationship like in a few hours just to escape the feeling of being all alone. I will do almost anything the guy im with n i hate that i do that the most.

Can someone plzz tell me how to fix this problem or tips ..any comments and opinions are appreciated

Hmm i'm not sure there is a specific medical addiction called a "love addiction."
But then again what do I know? =P
I wouldn't say its a complete bad thing.
I know a lot of people who are like that.
But when it leads to a lot of unhealthy relationships.
Then that can become a problem
The only way I think you can fix it is tell yourself you can be happy without a guy at your side.
Find ways to make yourself happy without being in a relationship.
Believe or not being single can have its fun sides. =)

I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.

It definitely is a real thing. I don't have much advice other then to look into it. Maybe talking to someone like a counselor would help some.
Best of luck.
