Obsessive dating dating type of relationship processing time
I got involved with a man who I didn’t love but he told me he loved me and I became “obsessed” with him.
After 8 months of disaster, and 2 months to heal myself, I met a guy who I fell head over Heels for.
I almost became a doormat even if he told me that he was not in love with me I kept on hoping that he would change.
So, after a lot of pain, it only lasted 6 months, I decided to let him go. Then, right away, I met a very nice gentleman and he seems to have some incredible potential but I cannot trust, I am showing again signs of obsession.
Before I elaborate on the cause of my concerns, I should mention that I write this not as a concerned parent, but rather as a male in his late teens describable as anxious and intense.

I describe it as being almost addiction-like, with very real withdrawal symptoms.
Can you tell me what causes such behavior especially at a younger age? Is it a result of any specific disorder or is it just something that happens?
