over the past three weeks ive been gathering with this group of people and theres this specific girl wich I have known my whole life in this group, and well I realy like her but wont dare to say anything about it,and now that Ive been seeing her well it seems like thats all I want to do, its like if I dont see her Im not happy or as active as I used to be. am I addicted to her? because the same thing used to happen to me with soda or coffee, when I didnt had any I just wouldnt function corectly.

I'm sure most of us has felt that way about someone at some point in their live(i know that i have). it can be really hard. whats holding you back from telling her how you feel?

i think one can be addicted to other. but you have to ask your conscience whether it is a good or bad addiction. sometimes the addiction is because of charm then it is dangerous and if it is something else then it is good. but you have to tell here it first, understand the view of her.

That is not addiction. It is obsession and is still not healthy. I would recommend staying away until you get yourself in check. you may do something you will regret.

Well, I can tell you, I've been there! I have been very much into some guy at school for a few years now, and before, I would nearly have a stroke if he came within 20 feet of me. But now, I'm able to be more calm about it, but I still kind of get excited when he's around. I don't get to see him or talk to him though. But really, it's very important to realize that you can't think someone is perfect, you can't put anyone on a pedestal. She's just another human being, even if she is a fantastic one, at that. You might just need time to get used to her. Try to rationalize your feelings and know what's going on, and try to think clearly, even though I know it's very hard!

The feelings you have are very normal when you have a crush or really like someone. You are not addicted to them, but probably falling in love with them. This is really nice. I hope you tell this person how you feel about them inside. They will be flattered and happy. To me, love is when someone walks into your life and changes you in so many ways that you never imagined. When they take your breath away and makes you the happiest person ever. All you can think about is them. Their touch, their presence, their smile, their hug, their kiss. You get so caught up that you feel like your in a dream. You can feel in your heart that it is real, but you wonder if they feel the same way about you. Love is very confusing and unpredictable in so many ways. I wish you well.

I'm positive that a person can become addicted to a person or a group of people. I'm thoroughly addicted to my girlfriend and my group of friends. I just love being around them and just love them in general. They are basically different versions of myself in different looks and different body shape. Friends also help shape you and add to what you are. I'm am definetley addicted to people so I would have to say it's possible.

addicted to someone? isn't it some sort of figure of speech? i think the right word for that is attracted. or perhaps in love, what do you think? why don't you try to talk to her about your feelings? there's nothing to lose though, if she doesn't like you then at least you have tried to let know how you really feel for her. plus, at least you have had the chance to express you feelings for her.

hello, i think you are just fascinated with this and and since you suppressed your feelings with her and haven't told her how much you really feel towards her you want to be with her most of the time and kept on thinking of her. befriend her and try to open up with her with what you feel but make sure she is not into a relationship. hope this helps. it is not addiction my friend thought this reminds me of the movie that meg ryan stared before thought i forgot the title it is something about addiction. LOL.

I think you really should tell her how you feel before you fall in love with this girl. She may feel the same way, or she may not. She could have some secret life you don't know about. So tell her. TELL HER.

I think the term is you could be obsessed with someone. That is what I usually hear from people who always think about a certain person and feel almost the same thing you feel.

well believe me guy, i share your experience. At one point in life, one falls in love, and the way we feel and react is quite different. I also find my self needing my girlfriend that i want her to come and we sit together and talk and kiss. Is this what you call addiction? you see its this strong feeling that makes you feel that you need not separate from her. You need her every moment. man, that feeling is sweet only when she shares it with you.

I am not sure if you can be addicted to a person, or if you are addicted to the way they make you feel when you are around them. With that said I don't think there is anything wrong with feeling great when you are with someone. However, I do not think it is unhealthy to sit around and wait for someone else to make you feel that life is enjoyable. Maybe you should try and occupy your time with other things when you are not together. Do you know if she feels the same way about you?
