Euphoric emotions can become addictive
It's not just sex or pornography that some crave compulsively.
Love, too, can be its own addiction.
"Most people don't recognize it. It's just like sexual addiction 15 to 20 years ago," said Stuart Hook, a private practice therapist with the Life Connection Counseling.
Few may have heard of the term, "but it happens," Hook said, adding, "I think maybe more so with women than men, but both ways."
Hook described it as people chasing one relationship after another, with people not recognizing addictive behavior but sometimes recognizing "commitment issues."
