Red roses, hearts, and all things lovey-dovey; that’s what’s on your mind most of the time. Well, if you’re addicted to love that is. The truth is there are more of us addicted to love than we realize.
While it can be cute and innocent when you’re younger, if the addiction carries into adulthood, it can often pose a problem in your relationships. Expectations get way too high and you’re left feeling disappointed and like you’re the only one who cares.
# Valentine’s Day is your favorite holiday
This is an obvious one. If your favorite holiday is the one where love is celebrated, you’re addicted especially since for you, this holiday beats Christmas and your birthday! Yes, your birthday is a holiday.
Valentine’s Day can mean a lot to some people, but if you’re counting down the days until you can celebrate it, you may want to consider admitting you’re addicted to love.
# You always have to know about everyone’s relationships
If your nose is constantly in other couples’ business, you might have a problem. Sure, you want to know about your friends’ relationships from time to time, but if you’re wanting extreme details, it’s time to consider you have an addiction.
# Your top five favorite movies are romance
I’ll admit, I’ve got a couple of romantic movies in my top five favorites, but all your favorite movies should not be romance. Your addiction to love makes you crave the stories encased in those films—the love stories.
Movies portray unrealistic romance, making your addiction grow because you envy that love.
# You have a Pinterest board dedicated to love
A “Love” or “Marriage” board on Pinterest is a smaller sign you’re addicted to love, but a sign nonetheless. It’s a bigger indicator of a problem if those boards are completely FILLED with stuff.
When you’re constantly pinning new love quotes, pictures, and ideas so much that your other boards never get any attention, you may have an addiction to love.
# Your favorite emojis are the heart and the heart eyes
It’s fine to use these on occasion, but if they’re your favorite and you use them in almost everything you send, tweet, or post, it could be a sign you’re secretly addicted to love.
This also means you’re spending an awful lot of time discussing things that have to do with hearts and heart eyes. AKA: love.
# You’re always in a relationship
People who are addicted to love, LOVE it, obviously. So that being said, people with this problem are almost always in a relationship. They also move from relationship to relationship without any time off.
These people also tend to be the ones who leave a relationship when the romance runs out. They get bored and have to move onto something or someone that gives them the love they’re craving so much.
# You’re always the first to say “I love you.”
If you’re addicted to love, then you love easily. Which means you’re usually the first person to say “I love you” in a new relationship. You’re the type of person who has said those words to all of your past partners as well. If that sounds like you, you’re probably secretly addicted to love.
# You have all the dating apps
Tinder, Match, OkCupid, Hinge, PlentyOfFish, and the like. If you have multiple dating apps on your phone and are a frequent user, you could be addicted to love. Searching for love on such a broad spectrum is a definite sign.
