Female Sexual/Love/Porn Addiction Treatment

Love addiction tends to create fixations, compulsions, and addictive behaviors with loved ones. Love addiction can result in divorce, affairs, poor job performance, relationship conflict, poor concentration, enmeshment, clinginess, and emotional distress including anxiety and depression.

Emotional highs such as intense passion, and emotional lows, like intense disappointment or heartbreak can eventually strain their relationship, resulting in experiencing resentment. Consequently, love addiction may have intense elements of a lack of control in their sexuality.

Healing The Wounds

Love addicts tend to find themselves in brief and intense romantic relationships that are rarely long-term. However, if in a long-term relationship, they often experience relational highs and lows. Furthermore, love addicts tend to withdraw from romantic or sexual relationships to avoid feelings of vulnerability.

Love addicts tend to expend tremendous amounts of energy on romantic relationships — whether involved in one or looking for one.

Often, the cause of love addiction is rooted in low self-esteem, lack of self-love, genetics, upbringing, attachment, fill emotional needs, and wounds of childhood trauma.

Individuals lacking self-esteem or who had less-than-nurturing childhoods may grow up looking for constant reassurance from others and tend to look for the excitement of being “in love.”

Helping heal these wounds often involves exploration into early childhood issues and their relationship to current destructive behavior patterns.

While it is normal to admire your romantic partner, love addicts often tend to become overly obsessive to the point one’s detriment.

Common Signs of a Love Addict

Moreover, if the love addict cannot maintain the attention or affection of their loved one, he or she can experience feelings of anxiety or even get depressed as their relationships begin to fall apart. The stress love addicts can put on themselves to obtain love, or the compulsive need to maintain or form relationships can become a distracting factor in poor job function or wellbeing. As a result, they can begin to neglect their self-care, further neglecting their needs as they become consumed by emotional highs and lows. They may not be able to function within healthy patterns without someone there to love or be loved by, seeing it as an act of betrayal.
