The purpose of this paper is to explore the main characters of this book, define the types of obsessive love proposed by the author and evaluate the knowledge this book can give to its readers. To keep it real, it is only normal to be a little jealous once in a while, particularly if you are involved with a guy that is super attractive and gets a lot of attention. Moreover, the author makes a point that recovery from obsessive love is a long and complicated process with no definite ending. These stages include the attraction phase, the anxious phase, the obsessive phase and finally, the destructive phase – which I illustrate in my book through the Obsessive Love Wheel. It is often followed by feelings of anxiousness and jealousy and may lead to one of the partners becoming possessive or manipulative.

Treating obsessive love often involves psychotherapy for the sufferer and for their love object, particularly if the two people are currently in a relationship with each other. In the beginning of a relationship, its not uncommon to experience fireworks [laughs] for the first couple of years. Afflicted person may feel the need to be constantly present in a partner’s life by contacting them multiple times during the day and possibly following them or participating in the same activities.

And If you have had a man cheat on you in the past, the issue of trust becomes understandably compounded.

Second, the person should try to recognize that something unhealthy is going on and that they may need to speak to someone for support, guidance and insight. It is also important to see, that many people, who are afflicted by relation dependency, are not aware of possible consequences of their actions. Confusing Love with Obsession is a must-read for anyone involved in a dangerously obsessive relationship. And for the boyfriend boyfriend, he usually indicates he is miserable, feels trapped and very unhappy.Women and men are driving eachother crazy by allowing this paranoid controling and dominating mindset to run there lifes while at the same time denying that they have done nothing wrong while the other person suffers and bends over backwords untill they get fed up and leave.

Pragmatic love is cooperative, as it promotes comfort and agreement for both sides of a relationship. I also related to the feelings of withdrawal listed when the person you are obsessed with is gone from your life. The first three types: eros, ludus, and storge are identified as primary types of love (Miller, 2014). John Moore helps these people to identify, comprehend and become aware of their destructive behaviors in personal relationships so they can stop the viscous cycle of pain. According to this idea, there are six types of love, and each type has apparent characteristics and traits.Some scientists distinguish relationships by comparing them to multiple styles of loving, a theory presented by John Alan Lee (Miller, 2014). When and if a relationship evolves, based on mutual feelings, that love transforms into a companionate type or love. More important, Confusing Love with Obsession helps readers develop a new self-awareness and healthy relationship--free from preoccupation with an object of obsession. In the book Confusing Love with Obsession, Moore (2010) introduces the Obsessive Love Wheel, a chart that displays various stages or types of obsessive love.

If occurs after the establishment of the relationship, where both partners voluntarily or involuntarily express commitment to each other.This is particularly true if a low degree of trust exists and a high degree of jealousy with an emphasis on physical attraction. Are you so consumed with his whereabouts that you engage in behaviors that many would consider to be stalking? Counseling can help and may involve helping both people visualize their relationship in a healthier manner, as well as using affirmations and other techniques to enhance their self-esteem. Fueled by an overwhelming fear of abandonment, people involved in obsessive relationships will go to extreme lengths to control their partner. Instead, it is a caustic condition whereby a person has intrusive thoughts about another and is unable to focus on much else except that individual.
