Is there smthng called like love addicts
My friend seems to feel that she is into love addiction and recently she has been thinking of divorce due to marital issues. But she thinks she is okay to return to her spouse because she fears being alone. She read somewhere about love addicts and feels that she has many related symptoms. Is there such an addiction and if yes how can she overcome this addiction? Recently she has been very indecisive about everything in life specially with relationships. Please help if she needs to see some doc.

As such their is no diagnosis of  "love addiction" in DSM (diagnostic and statistical manual). However any behaviour which is practised in excess, practised eventhough knowing it's physical or psychological ill effects, leading to trouble in relationships, Giving up important things in your life for addictive behaviour etc can be considered sort of addiction.

Your friend can consult a psychiatrist ( online or offline) for full evaluation and management. Best of luck.
