Limerence

Permanent Linkby coneyislandking on Tue Feb 25, 2014 4:03 pm

Limerence has always been a big deal for me. In fourth grade, I started dating girls and I remember being very clingy/controlling and obsessively afraid of being cheated on.

I don't think limerence belongs as a kind of OCD. I think it is a personality disorder. There is an obsession with your limerent object and with being loved in return, but because your obsession is an independent variable, no one compulsion or ritual is able to be perpetuated. In OCD, relief is found through briefly quenching the obsession. In LPD, relief is found only by giving the obsession new life through getting reactions that tell you there is hope of reciprocation. I think the two disorders are related, but I think they are not exclusively correlated.

There are some mornings when the sky looks like a road.
There are some dragons who were built to have and hold.
And some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly,
and some great bellies ache with many bumblebees,
and they sting so terribly.
