Addicted To Love? Love Addiction Is Totally Scientific According To Scientists!


Recent research suggests that romantic love can be literally addictive. Although the exact nature of the relationship between love and addiction has been described in inconsistent terms throughout the literature, the researchers offer a framework that distinguishes between a narrow view and a broad view of love addiction. Let's see what love is all about!


Some people live for love and romance.

You are absolutely familiar with these people, either from yourself or from your environment, they are addicted to love. And according to researchers, love is a natural addiction that emerged millions of years ago. It is thought that based on the instinct of life, it emerged towards the establishment of strong bilateral relations in the society.

Is there a scientific base for being so addicted? According to experts, the answer to this question is "yes."

Researchers have investigated the research on 64 cases of "love addiction" in the last 60 years.

As a result of this deep research, they have established two sound theories about love addiction.

The first theory is based on a somewhat simpler and narrower perspective than the other.

According to this first theory, when people are not in a relationship, they feel intense loneliness and immediately start a new relationship. The reason for this situation is that the brain's reward mechanism has been concentrated on this subject and is seen as dangerous. It is thought that terrible murders of lovers may be emerging as a result of this.

The second theory is from a broader perspective.

From this point of view, love addiction is located closer to normal love, but in a slightly stronger position.

According to this, being in love with someone means being addicted to them.

The researchers observed that the concepts of dependence and romantic commitment triggered the same regions and neurochemicals in the brain in the supporting data they found for this theory. In other words, love is treated in the same way as other addictions in the brain.

According to theory, when we are in love, we are in a kind of deprivation crisis and we find life a bit more meaningless.

In addition, addiction to drugs is also included among the concepts resembling love addiction. The only difference is that happiness, dependency, grief and depression don't always negatively affect the person in the later years of life (as opposed to drug addiction).

Although the measures are different, it is emphasized that love addiction can negatively affect people in both theories.

These negative effects include actions such as continuing to stay in tiring relationships so that they don't end.

In addition to these statements, it's thought that some of us may have developed anti-love mechanisms.

These mechanisms emphasize the possibility that we are less dependent on love, and that we have less of the suffering of our finished relationships. However, no clear data has yet been obtained about it.

In any case, pursuing constant love doesn't seem like a very healthy act.

After all, if you are dependent on love, fortunately, it's not too difficult to get over it; spending more time with your friends and focusing more on hobbies can help. Or you can learn how to survive over time.
