Are You Addicted to Love?

Not a quiz, but a fun and funny piece from Ireland about love addiction. In That Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Caitriona Durcan writes about the obsessive stage, better called romantic love -- and how it can make you act really crazy.

From the article:

"Once the love bug bites, serotonin levels in the brain drop, triggering obsessive behaviour," says behavioural psychologist Ciaran Foley. "The neural circuits controlling social judgment are suppressed and stress hormones increase, leading to higher blood pressure and sleep loss."
As usual, the article doesn't differentiate between the crazy romantic love and the calm and connected true love. It's the latter that's based on oxytocin.

So remember, everyone. When the madness fades, you haven't fallen out of love. You've just fallen into a new kind.
