When you’re out of that honeymoon period of a new marriage or committed relationship and things aren’t going so well, you may be trying to change some of your partner’s irritating behaviors. There are just so many frustrating things that they do (or don’t do!) that it’s sucking the joy out of your relationship. Or worse, perhaps you see a change in their attitude towards you, and they’re just not so loving or attentive to you anymore.
Are you obsessed with the passion and intensity of a new relationship – relationships that often end abruptly when the excitement is over? Is this obsession having negative consequences in your life? Love addiction is a very real problem that can greatly impact your life.
Your partner is charming. Everyone loves him. But behind closed doors, he becomes a different person. It’s like you’re dating Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. At times, can be so attentive and loving – but in an instant, his anger erupts and spews forth a volcano of nasty accusations and degrading comments. Sound familiar?
