Love Addiction Test

The following 25 questions are meant to be a simple a guideline for identifying the possible signs of love addiction. Love addiction is not an official diagnosis thus these questions do not provide a diagnosis, however your affirmative answers may be an indicator that love addiction presents in your relationships. Every love addict’s unique pattern plays out in their relationships, which may be reflected in the answers to these questions giving you a quick and effective tool for self-diagnosis. Please note that love addiction is a matter that needs professional attention. If you answer in the affirmative to five or more questions you may have a problem and should seek professional help.
