I stumbled across the term “love addict” and after doing some research I discovered the following
I answered yes to 75% of these questions. I thought most women would answer yes to at least half the questions.
How many “yes’s” do you have?

@dannielle89: I said yes to one item. Out of 40. Saying yes to 75% of these I would take as a serious sign that you should get yourself into therapy ASAP to figure out why exactly so much of your self worth is connected to whether or not you’re in a relationship, and why you would rather be treated poorly or be in a bad relationship than to be alone. If you really answered yes to that many questions, you’d be doing yourself a great favor in doing some soul searching and getting some help.

I would’ve been guilty of a few of these in high school, but I only said “eh maybe” to the first one (you are very needy when it comes to relationships) because I’m in a long distance relationship so I feel like I need lots of attention now but when we weren’t long distance and could see each other all the time, I didn’t feel like I was being needy or smothering at all.

I’m already in therapy, but I might bring this up with my therapist.
After thoroughly going over the questions again I answered yes to a significantly lower amount, but still more than I’m sure is considered “healthy”.

@dannielle89: Great! I’d print it out and bring it to the next session so you’re not like “uh I think this question was about…” and you’ll just have it all right there. Much easier than working off memory!
