Limerence test, symptoms, cure & real people stories

Limerence definition, meaning and comparison to love

Limerence is the emotional state of uncontrollable obsession and infatuation for a particular person, called the Limerent Object, coupled with a desire to obtain their emotional commitment and begin a relationship with them.

It was coined by psychologist Dorothy Tennov, after a research period that involved interviews with over 500 different people who displayed the symptoms.

Limerence is usually experienced before a relationship. However, in some cases it can happen during a relationship, or even after a breakup. Some people don’t even experience limerence in any way.

(Test) Should I download Tinder? 4 reasons yes & 6 not to

“Is Tinder worth it?”

Most people would say to just download it and try it out for yourself simply because it’s free. It’s a good argument, but it doesn’t really tell you if it’s worth investing time and effort into dating on Tinder.

For instance, can you actually find someone compatible for a long term relationship? Is the app really only for hookups? Is it as trashy as most people say it is?

As a short summary to the rest of the article, Tinder has many, many people on it that use the app in many different ways. Some want only hookups. Others only relationships. Others are undecided and would like both. You may even find couples who want to spice up their love lives by adding a third person in the relationship.

How effective Tinder is for you will depend in large part on how patient you are with the app, and how much time you’ll give yourself to figure it out.

I Hate My Life: 33 Stories of People who Turned It Around

The opening line to Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is “all happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way”.

The reasons that have brought you to the point of saying “I hate my life” are entirely your own and unique to you.

On the positive side: whatever troubles haunt you are not permanent, unless you want them to be. If life has ups and downs, you’re now in a down period.  

The Only List of Best Philosophy Books You Will Ever Need

How to read philosophy books: 4 things to know

1) Philosophy is the root of almost all sciences

In the early days of history, almost all human knowledge could fit into a single academic discipline, and that was philosophy.
