Love Addiction Self-Screening Quiz If you are uncertain as to whether you might be a love addict, the following quiz is designed help. This test is similar to the twenty-question quiz that Alcoholics Anonymous offers to help people decide if they are alcoholic. A scoring key can be found at the end of the test. Please answer yes or no to the following 15 questions. In doing so, you should consider your entire romantic history, not just recent events. In other words, if you were serial dating three years ago but lately your issue has been with hookup apps, you should still take your history of serial dating into account. 1. Do you feel detached and/or unhappy when in a relationship, yet desperate and lonely when out of a relationship? *YesNo2. Do you avoid relationships and/or sex for long periods of time to “solve the problem” that you seem to have with failed romances? *YesNo3. Are you unable to leave unhealthy or abusive relationships despite repeated promises to yourself and/or others? *YesNo4. Do you have affairs or intense flirtations and intrigue (either online or real world) while already in committed relationships? *YesNo5. Do you repeatedly return to previously unmanageable or painful relationships (either online or real world) even though you know that nothing is likely to be different this time? *YesNo6.

If you answered yes to one or two questions, you are at-risk for love addiction. If you answered yes to three or more of the questions, there is a definite possibility that you are romantically addicted.
