Here's a really good explanation of what it is and how it feels. Ive only ever experienced this once and it lasted for eight years? I'd like to think im finally over it.
A lot of it roots from fear of rejection which, I think, correlates to a fearful- avoidant attachment style. So if you have ever experienced this crazy thing called limerence, I would love it if you could share your experience and if you are out of the woods, how did you escape?
Also, what do you think your attachment style was at that point in your life and what do you think it is now?
