DOROTHY TENNOV LOVE AND LIMERENCE PDF

Question of limerence or question of obsession? Limerence can only represent a phase of physical and mental agitation that is mainly caused by our love towards a person. To a certain extent, the symptoms of this issue do not deviate from the norm concerning natural infatuation. Excessive sweating, heart palpitations, confusion, sensation of lightness, and agitated hormones are the keys of this phase that is mainly marked by romantic love. However, sometimes this natural phase turns into limerence as a psychological term.

Regardless of whether the person is a good match for us, the overwhelming download of chemicals into the brain can overpower sanity. We find ourselves justifying relationships that are unrequited, toxic , or just lacking in fulfillment of basic needs.

Over the next four decades of research, Tennov joined poets, playwrights, and pop songs in the conversation about the madness of love. Irrationally positive evaluations of their attributes and denial of red flags e.

My love will overcome that. Feelings of ecstasy in the presence of the loved one, even if they are barely aware of you.

Deep, wild mood swings, from delight to agony and back again. Total anguish when the relationship ends: not ordinary grief, which accompanies the termination of all relationships, but the feeling that you actually cannot go on living without the person. Extreme exaggeration of any response from the limerent to be interpreted as "a sign" your feelings are requited regardless of actual evidence.

Irrational love — love based on "just a feeling" — can wreak havoc in the lives of people who are otherwise sane and functional. Unfortunately, our culture often promotes these unhealthy behaviors, with songs that are so popular people sing along without really hearing the lyrics. For example, when Percy Sledge recorded the popular "When a Man Loves a Woman," I wonder how many people actually considered the words he was singing.

It simply relates to the strength of your limerence. Keep an honest journal of all of your relationship events — including the disappointing and painful ones, which will give you something with which to challenge your fantasies.

Do not include feelings. Do not try to make your list match the personality of someone you want to be in a relationship with.

Make the list independently of other influences. Then, when you meet new potential partners, you can check your list to see if this person actually has the qualities you know you need in a partner.

If your feelings of unrequited love are affecting your daily life and normal functioning, consider speaking with a counselor. You are worthy of a diamond. Related reads:.

Love Or Limerence? 11 Signs You’re In A Fantasy Relationship

Love and limerence part one January 11, By drlimerence 77 Comments When Dorothy Tennov published her book, Love and Limerence, her goal was to systematically analyse romantic love and define the experience of being in love. She ended up articulating the pattern of behaviours and sensations that characterise limerence, contrasting it from the experience of non-limerents falling in love. The relationship between love and limerence is complex. More recently, those few psychologists who have researched the phenomenon have tended to focus on the pathological aspects of limerence — the intrusive thoughts, irrational behaviour, and distress caused by person addiction.
