Hi Nicola, I hope you can help me with my problem, my partner of 2yrs is getting fed up of my constant affection towards him. I can’t keep my hands off him and repeat how much I love him on a daily basis. He finds this a struggle not in a sense that he doesn’t love me but the fact he finds it exhausting as I am a bit over the top. He is on my mind 247, i don’t always eat properly as i feel totally love sick. Please can you help? Thanks Jane.
To love someone too much can be extremely painful and you need to find ways to deal with your strong emotion as this could cause issues in your relationship. Your partner could easily feel suffocated from constant attention or your questions doubting their love for you because you become obsessed. Take a step back and think of ways to control your feeling of excessive love for this individual. Maybe occupy your mind with a project or activity so your sole focus isn’t just on your partner. Hook up with friends socially and enjoy their company, join a club that interests you, there are many things you can do to help you overcome your deep feeling. Alternatively if it’s getting you down which is making you feel depressed seek counselling. It’s good to talk to a qualified counsellor who can give an unbiased opinion or get to the root cause of why you feel like this.
