I think that I'm literally addicted to my boyfriend, since I really can't think about anything else than him, I always worry about him when we are apart and he just never gets off my mind. Is it an addiction?
Can you literally be addicted to a person?

I think that's essentially how attraction/infatuation works, yeah. The marvels of oxytocin.1
It's love I think. Infatuation. Something like that, not addiction. If he ever cheated on you or you no longer loved him you wouldn't be "addicted" anymore.0
OH, its your lust and your hormones that are doing it don't worry it will change soon.1
Yes, it is called infatuation. This is when you are so enchanted you just cannot see any of their faults. Dangerous ground, get out now.0
I think so. I was literally addicted to this one woman. Not anymore.0
without even trying lol
yea like im addicted to games0
It's called being an annoying little 14 year old.0
Yeah sadly it is. The problem is eventually you won't be. When I was 16 I met a 14 year old freshman and we started dating. Now I'm 18 and we're still together. In the past 2 months we finally got out of that addiction phase. And when you stop being addicted to that person you wonder what's wrong and why your world feels like it's been turned upside down. Be very careful.0
No it's called hormones and perfectly normal at your age.0

In fresh love sure, other than that I dont think so. I have a list of additions and people usually aren't on there0
no, it's just love hun. i feel this way with my boyfriend too. when he is gone i feel so lonely and bored and i'll admit i can get a little clingy at times, haha. just try not to be too clingy or mention him too much to others and you'll be fine. congrats on being in love. <32

I think it's normal, most everyone I know is addicted to their partner somehow. I am too lol1
No it isn't. You are just in lust0
Not really but just be careful you don't fall into being codependent on him for your happiness1
Oh man! I know exactly how you feeeeellllll!!! :)0
I'm a licensed therapist and yes, the cortisol levels in your body change when you're near someone you like. So do other various brain chemicals. People do get chemically addicted to each other. That's why break ups hurt so much, you go through withdrawal like a drug addict. But it sounds like you're also going through the infatuation phase of your relationship. Don't lose yourself in this. Do some things for yourself and get some distance. Nobody likes dating a doormat, so you need to do some things for yourself in order to maintain a balance in the relationship. This will make it stronger, I promise.1
