To like someone too much in a relationship? When does is start becoming an obsession?


I think any relationship has a healthy level of "like". It's normal to think about someone a lot, to want to spend time with them, to want to make plans with them. Yes, even prioritising plans with them over other people occasionally (but not regularly) is normal.

But when its only them, or only you then there's a problem. Relationships require dedication to one another, yes, but in healthy relationships, they still have friends they spend time with, and so should you. If you feel you're beginning to devote all your time to them, and only ever them, there might be a problem.

If you feel that you're falling behind with work or school, that your relationships (friendships) are suffering, you might be obsessed with them. If you feel your life revolves around them? Also a problem.

The simple solution - make dedicated time to spend with other people. Say, every Friday you get lunch with a friend. And stick to it. Set time aside for your own hobbies. Once a week, twice a week, whatever. It's easy enough fixed if you have a good partner.

If they react poorly to this? Reconsider your choice of partner.

Hope this helps!
Yes it is possible especially when the like for the person continually grows and has no end. It starts turning into an obsession.
