Our expert says:
Obsewssions are a form of psychiatric disturbance. Love, which can at times be obsessive to some degree, is not.
But much of what you describe can be controlled simply by your chosing to be realistic in your expectations. An SMS every hour ? What on earth would you have done in the days before SMS, before cell-phones, indeed, before phones ?
It swould be well worth your while to see a good local counsellor / psychologist, preferably one practising CBT, to work on your apparent habit of going way over the top and excessive in your reaction to someone you think you love --- your behaviour may well be so overwhelming and smothering as to make the person you're temporarily besotted with, want to withdraw and leave you, so it is essentially self-defeating. Work with the counsellor to regain control over such behaviours, so as to be able to enjoy more peaceful and sustained relationships
