Romantic Relationships & Addictions

Romantic relationships offer you one of the greatest opportunities to understand yourself.

Like a great therapist, a romantic partner can serve as a mirror, reflecting back a part of you. Simultaneously, relationships bring to light our biggest insecurities and vulnerabilities. These aspects of our romantic relationships make them breeding grounds for emotional reactivity, lying and self-deception. Relationships and breakups can also stimulate parts of your brain that make you feel addicted to your lover.

How your background affects your current romantic relationships

How emotional reactions are connected to our thinking

Why you feel addicted to a love interest or ex

The costs of lying to ourselves on our relationships

How to use interpersonal interactions to understand yourself

How to get over an ex and move forward from an addictive relationship

How to create healthier, more meaningful relationships

Love addiction and Breakups

Emerging research suggest that people can literally can feel addicted to a love interest. This means they’ll think about them constantly, feel desperate for contact, and want to spend every waking moment with the person of interest. Your brain is activated in ways that creates extreme cravings, bonding, and focus on your love interest. Although this addictive feeling can be magical, it is devastating if the love is not returned.
