The sad reality of obsessive love disorder

We all know that love can be overwhelming and sweep us off our feet and out of our minds. It’s not unusual to get lost in the whirlwind sometimes, but this is usually temporary, and as we mature and gain experience we learn to recognize that “new relationship energy” and keep our heads on straight. Someone who is struggling with obsessive love disorder (OLD), on the other hand, won’t find this so easy. With OLD, love becomes an all-consuming fixation. Rather than a desire to see the other person thrive, it often comes with the desire to protect and even control them. A lot of the time, the person with OLD suffers more than anyone else, as they are bowled over by these overwhelming feelings and struggle to function. However, it can also become dangerous for the object of the desire if their behavior escalates to psychological or physical abuse, or even stalking. Click through this gallery to learn more about the sad reality of obsessive love disorder.
