Love conquers all, so they say, but could being in love be bad for you?

You could be addicted to your partner in the same way as you can be addicted to drugs, food or alcohol! There are different signs that will tell if you are addicted to your partner. When the thrill of new love dies down, and the addiction sets in.

If you have to be with your partner constantly, this could be un unhealthy sign. If you annoy your friends to the extent that you have to be with them whatever the event, and it is invading your and their lives.

If you are regularly skipping work to see your partner, things could be getting out of control.

Maybe you are constantly buying presents for your partner or getting into debt because of them.

Time spent together should be enjoyable, if you don’t have other people or things in your life,things can become a little strained.
You may feel anxious when they’re not around, like when you go to bed at night,, or when you’re at work.

You should be able to enjoy time alone with your friends, and so should they, and if you can’t stop texting them while you’re out, that relationship may be unhealthy.

If you bump into their ex and get angry,if you pick fights about petty things, and if you feel  ecstatic when you’re together and miserable when they’re apart all could be signs of addiction.

If the housework doesn’t get done and if you were used to be spending time with friends and family and now you never see them, it could be time to have a rethink.

Set boundaries and start to love yourself first, and don’t be afraid to seek professional help. If you have an addictive personality, it is easy to become addicted to anything at all. Watch out for the signs.

About Mel Watson

I have been with Phoenix FM since April 2007 - I came in to be interviewed about yoga just after the station launched in March, and enjoyed it so much that my own show - Body Talk - was born. On Body Talk I cover a different health topic every week and interview top healthcare profesionals including doctors, surgeons, healers, reflexologists and life coaches. I feel that all therapies have their place in today's world, and some of the more alternative methods can easily complement convential medicine. I have been a yoga and meditation teacher for over 20 years, am a qualified hypnotherapist, and I have also trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, Reiki, Lucid Dreaming and Dream Therapy. I run regular classes at the Brentwood Centre as well as private one to one sessions. I've walked a spiritual path for most of my life and outside of radio and teaching I'm an Independent Celebrant. I officiate at Weddings, Naming Ceremonies, Spiritual Blessings and Funerals. You can find out more at www.blessmysoul.co.uk.
