A close and revealing look at the inner workings of people obsessed with their partners to the point of destroying the relationship on which they have come to depend.

Some men and women attach themselves to destructive relationships that they cannot walk away from. They pathologically need to control their partners, using whatever means necessary, including money, sex, food, and emotions. They stalk, harass, and abuse their partners in an effort to exert control and cannot function unless they are in a relationship. Men and women who confuse love with obsession can discover healthy, loving relationships with others but only when they learn to have a healthy, loving relationship with themselves.

A must-read book for anyone involved in a dangerously obsessive relationship.

Confusing Love with Obsession is a must-read for anyone involved in a dangerously obsessive relationship. Fueled by an overwhelming fear of abandonment, people involved in obsessive relationships will go to extreme lengths to control their partner. Here, John D. Moore draws from excruciating real-life stories and personal experience to reveal the inner workings of obsessive relationships. More important, Confusing Love with Obsession helps readers develop a new self-awareness and healthy relationship--free from preoccupation with an object of obsession.

Found the stories of the 0.1% that have these out of control obsessions interesting. This shows how the mind works. We all do this a little and being aware of this can improve our dealings with the people in our lives.
