Am I alone in this? Every time to no fail when I meet someone new and there’s any sort of slight positive relationship formed (coworker, friend, boss, etc.) I feel like I get obsessive in terms of thinking about them and wondering and trying to talk to them whenever I can. Eventually they ween away and so does this obsession. This is still happening with one of my old coworkers. When we started having a positive friendship I started getting obsessive and trying to hide it from them as to not creep them out. They left and it died off after a week. We have them been talking again and I became obsessive all over again so fast. I think about them any moment of free time my brain gets. :/

      I have a similar issue, and what it sounds like bpd (borderline personality disorder) for me it causes me to obsess over every moment we're not talking and what I mightve done wrong even of I did nothing. For me it makes it hard to let go of things people do or say or eve just friendships that have run their course.

      I'm the same exact way. Never figured out how to prevent it.

      I do this all the time. When I was little I would obsess over one friend and not want them to hang out with anyone else. Now as an adult it's more potential partners I obsess over. If they don't text me back immediately I think I've are ignoring me and I phone watch. Or I'm terrified of saying or doing something that will chase them away. I'm afraid they will think I'm crazy or weird because of my mental struggles. I try to hide my obsessions but it literally consumes me. All I think about it them and how I want to talk to them and see them and how I don't want them to talk to any other girls cause I get insanely jealous. I hate it and I want it to stop but I don't know how to stop obsessing
