Difference Between Love and Obsession

chemical-basis-love-300Love vs Obsession

Love is a feeling from the heart, and obsession can be termed as a crazy feeling. Though love and obsession are related in some aspects, the two can never be thought to be the same.

Love is a feeling that is uncontrollable, and a feeling which one has for another person. Love always means caring, supportive and giving. On the other hand, obsession is only a crazy idea where a person cannot think in an affectionate manner.

Love is a feeling when a person wants the best for the one he loves, and always wants them to be happy, even if they are not part of his life. On the other hand, obsession is a crazy feeling where the person wants the other to be his or her’s only. An obsessed person always thinks of having the beloved one on his or her side all day.

One may give more importance to the other’s needs when in love. For the person who is in love, the other’s needs are given prominence. Whereas, an obsessed person gives more importance to his or her needs. Love is something that makes one feel good. Obsession makes one look like an idiot.

It can be said that love has no limits or boundaries. In love, there is complete freedom. Well, obsession is something that has its own limitations, and it is a condition where one feels like they have no freedom.

Obsession is also shrouded with jealousy. On the other hand, love is always pure, and it is the understanding between individuals. Persons who are in love, trust each other blindly. On the contrary, an obsessive person will always want to know every detail about the other person. This only means that an obsessive relationship lacks trust.

Summary:

1. Love always means caring, supportive and giving. Obsession is only a crazy idea where a person cannot think in an affectionate manner.

2. One may give more importance to the other’s needs when in love. Whereas, an obsessed person gives more importance to his or her needs.

  1. Well I don’t completely agree with the post. Everyone
    In a relationship wants the other person to be his or her
    Only plus everyone is dgona get really upset and not let
    Go of someone they love and try their best to make things
    Work out. and I also think its normal to think about
    One person all the time when u get into a relationship
    Because you are attracted and u wana hangout all the
    Time but it fades with time

    • @ Angela. Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, I don’t think this post is related to someone who is quite nearly in a new relationship. This is posted for those who need information about the relationship they’ve been in for some time. Of course you want to be with someone in the beginning all the time, that’s the time you have to get to know someone. But, when you’ve been with someone for a while and notice awkward behavior, that’s when this information is crucial . True love doesn’t fade with time, it only gets stronger with hard work and dedication. The information provided in this article is true and accurate, to a fault. I am married to a loving man who, unfortunately, has gone through this situation. Trial and error have made us stronger. Through reading this article together, we have the understanding and the knowledge of the difference between love and obsession.

      • I am seriously in love with this one girl but she moved on with this other guy shes seeing but I dont wanna let go of the precious times we had when i told her i love her, when we kissed, when i told her i’ll always be there for her and she felt the same way for me as well but im just in need of help, can someone please help me how to win her back?

  2. I agree with the previous person- Angela. I think when you’re in love with a person, you obviously want them to be next to you as much as possible. But then in the other hand, the examples they gived for obsession sounds soo true!!…
    damn, Im in trouble!…hehehehe…oh well…eff it!

  3. This one is for Etan. I know you want her back but let it go. If she is in another relationship, she is telling you she has moved on with her life living it up and you need to do the same. Life is to short to run behind someone that has moved on with theirs. It’s okay to date and get your life back in order or just take some time for Etan. Think about what went wrong with the relationship and be watchful in the next. The next time you fall head over heels in love with someone you will be ready. Love is kind, gentle, and humbling.

  4. is love forgiving?

  5. Hi ,

    I have been in a distance relationship for almost 2 years. we met couple of times and spent good time together.

    we mate with plan to get married and we started our relationship on that manner. First she was very much into me, we had many times some arguments on each other doings on common ground.

    She showed me from the starting of relationship is – She is naive and doesn’t understand the outer world very correctly and gave me right to show her difference in right and wrong things.

    Due to the distance ( 13000 KM) we hardly could understand each other prospective and faught over it. I considered it as Distance and thought it will be okay when we wil be together.

    She showed too much love to me in beginning of relationship , so much respect and trust but slowly slowly it went..

    in Oct , 2013 , I had an accident while (I was thinking for her and make this relationship work out and dealing with her in more loveable way) next day I didn’t tell her that I was injured, I called her to speak her as I was very concerned for her as she was outing with her friends in one of the most unsafe city for Girls in World, she did not pick up my phone so I called her friends mobile to know if all okay. I showed my anger on her that she should be concern about calls. We had a fight on this. and after that she stopped talking to me and disconnected me from everything.

    I tried to reach her to explain that I was just concern for your safety and since I got head enjury on that day, I was not in stable condition as my head was spinning on each bad thought.

    Anyways she didnt realize it and thought I was making a story. I kept writting her emails sending cards etc for 1 months.

    Meanwhile I was also preparing my new home for her. I thought she is angry and eventually one day understand my LOVE to her ( what she always have been seeking in me)

    in November, 2013, I decided to go to meet her I flew all the way to 13000 KM to meet her at city.

    The first time she knew that I am in the city she didnt meet me.
    Her friends advised me to meet her after 5 days, Second time I again tried to meet her, this time she mate me. but she was very cold and was reacting in a manner that she doesnt know me.

    I stayed with her for 4 days. sorted out all the things we promissed each other that we wil not get apart but I have to meet her parents to convey them.

    Third time , I again went to her city to meet her parents. and convinced them for marriage.

    we decided that from now we wil understand each other more. and promised for it. After settling all I came back to my place.

    On 31st Dec night , I asked her to skype with me at 12. she told me that she already made some plans with friends so I didnt insist her. but I felt bad about it.

    after that there were some incidents happened that I felt she is not taking me imp or taking me for granted (like speding time with friends, shopping, sleep etc )even though we were planning to get married in 2 months)

    After seeing repetitive her behaviour, I couldnot control on myself and yelled on her to ask her why she is doing that way.
    she replied me that she does not see any of her fault in all cases.

    After that she again stopped talking to me and blocked me from eveyr where even though I sent her sorry message and called twice.

    No my question is — what is this – LOVE or Obsession?
    I started doing all the things what she always wanted from me.and now I am doing everything to save my relationship, she is taking very roughly.

    I am unable to understand that how some one be so insensitive and irresponsible about relationship who breaks the relationship in every kind of fight ?

    I am really in bad phase, advise me.

    Thanks,
    P

    • This is obsession, healthy love is not that demanding and focused on rules and feelings. Some times the world doesn’t work in black and white manner. Sometimes, for true love you have to rewrite the rules. Let her be and if u stop forcing her to do certain things and be certain way, she will come around. Just be patient.

  6. i like the manner in which the differences are written, i clearly understood the concept between love and obsession thank you.
