Person Addiction

Postby Elen Sila » Thu Nov 12, 2009 5:41 am

I'm basically addicted to my friend Joyce. When we're together, we hold hands and hug and kiss and say that we love each other. I think about her almost every day. I've gone to sleep fantasizing that I'm sleeping in her arms or kissing her hands and shoulders. I went to see a movie with her today, first time I'd seen her in weeks, and within five minutes of getting home, I already missed her again. I have to force myself not to bombard her with messages on Facebook, and I intentionally refrained from asking for her number when she got a cell phone, so that I wouldn't be tempted to call her all the time.

Have you ever been addicted to a person? Has anyone ever been addicted to you, to your knowledge? If either, did you consider it a good or a bad thing at the time? Did you change your mind in retrospect?

Personally, I find it stressful, but at the same time exciting. I can't wait to see her again.

This is called love, Anarch. Welcome to the fold.

Yes I did. My boyfriend. And yes they did, my perceptions changed dramatically. Love isn't new. Sounds like you are.

I'm never addicted to people who are addicted to me, and when I'm addicted to someone they aren't addicted to me either. Its pretty awesome.

A "Have you ever been in love" thread would have been ghey. Also, it is possible to love someone without being addicted to them necessarily.

The black text sometimes seems as visible as the white text, at least to me. I don't know why you guys think that's the way to hide something.
Under construction. Or something.

it is if you get a black background post as opposed to the dark blue.

They appear as medium blue and dark blue to me. *Shrug*

@Anarch: this pretty much is a "have you ever been in love" thread. And how can you love someone without being addicted to them? I thought thats what love was. Although I may be wrong.

I was addicted to someone once, he was my middle crush. We were really never dating then. He moved away after a while, I knew that he cared for me and I him. We met again about two years ago, we tried to date but.....nothing. We stayed friends for a while, but I knew that he still cared. So I asked him out and got a no.
Then last year we finally went on out and I was happy, until I realized he liked his games more then me. I forgave him after a while and we started talking again. I realized then that I loved him, then a few weeks ago he started pleading for sex. I then knew that I was nothing more to him then a lay to him. If you think that I have no proof think again, he said it to my face. Almost killing my self because of him I got him out of my life for good.
We haven't talked since. :cry:
Just let me burn, it's what I deserve, God I've lied, am I lost in your eyes....

Love is biologically no different to eating chocolate.

I think that's true, although i've never really looked into it, although it really wouldn't surprise me.

Addiction to a person is a good thing, if you can twist it into you wanting to make their life better. I've been in love, it can be most joyous feeling when it's mixed with positivity.

Negative 'addiction' can rip you apart though.

I once had someone feel this way towards me and I didn't feel the same way back, but I couldn't do anything about it and it got a tad outa control, really fucked me up aswell. So much so I simply had to cut off communication with her. It was by far the best option on her part.

"Love" is cognate with german "lieben," and has never been as strong a word as people would like it to be.

I hate chocolate. I love love. So no.

What GC said.

I love my mother and father, but I certainly start wanting to leave if I'm around them for longer than a few hours.

Here's an idea: If you're going to make a statement of fact and then say you have don't know if its fact, then its probably a good idea to not make said statement in the first place.

Here's how I would have done it:

I should look more into it, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were true.

I don't think that matters as much as the message.

My screen is Black... real black. So if you want to hide from me I will never see it... of course ignorance is bliss so who cares.

Wayne please point out all black posts to me. Ty. :)

Anarch, is it love, infatuation or addiction? Three very different words.

At first I wasn't going to touch this thread with a ten foot pole. Oh well what fun would that be.

Love is a complex emotion ... addiction is simple.

Ok here I go into hot water.... almost no one in their teens can truly love. They lack the wisdom to separate love from lust. How do you tell the difference? A mistake could cost you 18 years and a lot of money. lol

There are four kinds of love: http://www.suite101.com/blog/briantubbs ... ds_of_love

Addiction would seem to imply either a physical addiction, that doesn't seem to fit. Or a mental obsession, and that wouldn't be love.

I do believe you can become addicted to a person but most of the time I would think that is a bad thing.

Good luck Anarch. :)

In the sudden surge of 'I know what your talking about but i'm going to point out your grammar mistakes anyway because i'm that irritating and/or don't have anything else to say" posts, I will now be pointing out every one of yours.

EDIT: Chocolate linky.

Lol, hot water indeed. I must say though that I knew the difference between love and lust when I were a teenager. Well, perhaps just under half way through my teens, although i can't speak for everyone i knew at the time.
