I like that they liken love sickness to mental illness.

Limerent fear of rejection is usually confined to shyness in the presence of the limerent object, but it can also spread to situations involving other potential limerent objects, though generally it does not affect other spheres of life.

Although it appears that limerence blossoms under some forms of adversity, extreme caution, even immobility, and shyness based on fear of giving the limerent object an undesirable view can prevent a relationship from occurring even when both people are interested.

There is apprehension, nervousness, and anxiety due to terrible worry that any action may bring about disaster.

The super-sensitivity that is heightened by fear of rejection can get in the way of interpreting the limerent objectís body language and lead to inaction and wasted opportunities. Bodily signals may be emitted that confuse and interfere with attaining the limerent object.

Thank you for this. I now have a name for my problem. I am apparently serially limerent.

LOL. I did not know that word. "Limerance"... I knew "crush." Reminds me of some lyrics by The The (Matt Johnson):

True Happiness This Way Lies

And have you ever wanted something so badly
that it possessed your body and your soul
through the night and through the day
until you finally get it!
And then you realise that it wasn't what you wanted after all.
And then those selfsame sickly little thoughts
now go and attach themselves to something....
And the whole goddamn thing starts all over again.
Well, I've been crushing the symptoms but I can't locate the cause.
Could God really be so cruel?
To give us feelings that could never be fulfilled. Baby!
I've got my sights set on you. I've got my sight set on you
And someday, someday, someday, you'll come my way.
But when you put your arms around me
I'll be looking over your shoulder for something new
'cause I ain't ever found peace upon the breast of a girl
I ain't ever found peace with the religion of the world
I ain't ever found peace at the bottom of a glass
sometimes it seems the more I ask for the less I receive
sometimes it seems the more I ask for the less I receive
The only true freedom is freedom from the heart's desires
and the only true happiness....this way lies.
