Love Addiction Test

The love addiction test can help you figure out if you suffer from love addiction.  The following 25 questions are designed to be used as a guideline for identifying signs of love addiction. They are not intended to provide a sure-fire method of diagnosis, nor can negative answers to these questions provide absolute assurance that love addiction is not present. Many love addicts have varying patterns which can result in very different ways of approaching and answering these questions. Despite this fact, we have found that short, to-the-point questions can be an effective a tool for self-diagnosis. We understand that the diagnosis of love addiction is a matter that needs to be both very serious and very private. We hope that these questions will prove helpful.
