  1. Some fine points are brought out, but be very aware that there is no such thing as “obsessed love”. Obsession has psychopathy at its roots and comparing the two (love and obsession) is the same as trying to compare peanuts with cake. Until people understand that someone who is obsessed has some degree of mental illness, many folk will themselves at the mercy of a deranged person. While the author listed some very clear warning signs of a dysfunctional possessive relationship, there are some not-so-obvious thngs to think about and those things have to do with yourself, not the potential stalker “other” person. For starters, please be aware that your knack for “lots of hot sex without the ties” could place you at great risk for an unhealthy and unsafe relationship. Just because you think you made it clear that you don’t want to be serious, does not always mean the other person doesn’t harbor some secret “dreams” of life forever with you. Add alcohol or other drugs to your get-togethers and you may be fueling a sex-crazed temperamental bipolar drug addict. If you partake of an on-again-off-again love affair, the other person could see themselves as gaining ground EACH time you’re “on-gain”, you may be adding to their illusions. Also, one of the worse things you can do is not be clear on what you’re looking for in a relationship. It may be perfectly reasonable for you to think, “I may or may not be interested” in a long-term relationship depending upon the other party, but there are some not-so- obviously ill persons who will be terribly confused thinking your “love for them” is what has you confused. They will continually build a loving relationship in their head when that is the farthest thing on your mind. Another omen is the giving and receiving of personal items/gifts/money, etc. Make no mistake, lots of people equate gift-giving with love. Even if it’s only meals at upscale restaurants, there are some folk who will view this as your seeing them as someone truly special. When you say you just wanted a nice atmosphere, they may feel betrayed.

    While there is no way possible to predict every imaginable or unimaginable behavior of another person, we live in times where you really can’t be too careful with the clues you send to others. If you end a relationship, stand your ground. don’t send inuendos or hint around that one more night of sex might possibly change things. Your play on words or back-pedaling can get you killed.
