Have faith has just posted this excellent article about the hormones of the honeymoon state. In Love and Limerence, Dorothy Tenov explains that we get addicted to this. She calls it limerence. It is from this book that we first learned that romantic love was addictive. The book, "Women Who Love Too Much," is really referring to passion and desire not genuine love. If you are addicted to limerence then the solution to recognize it is not going to last forever and that is ok. Scott Peck in The The Road Less Traveled says God gave us passion to get us past our fear of intimacy and then we no longer need it because we bond for other reasons like getting along and being happy. Less exciting but longer lasting. He ends by explaining that "genuine" love is wanting to spiritual nurture your partner and that it is the road less travelled.
