The Automatic Love Addict

You are a Lover driven by passions more powerful and more extraordinary than most people can even imagine. You are never at peace, never fully satisfied. Even in the happiest relationship you are always seeking more, always jockeying for a new emotional high. Your feelings are often extreme and compulsive but just as often they are ambiguous and indescribable. There is a mystical quality about you connections with other people and your affection often has a deep, spiritual dimension. But that doesn’t make those connections any more likely to last.

Obviously, you are not the kind of Lover everyone can value, or even endure.  At your worst you blow through people’s lives like a hurricane, leaving a path of shattered hearts and broken promises. At your very worst you use sex as a replacement for the emotional fulfillment that seems to constantly elude you. Your best, however, you can become an example of love at it most selfless and devoted, love that transcends the ordinary, the physical and even the emotional. Achieving this “best” will not be easy and many of you will fail but the fact that you’ve even attempted it should be enough to cancel out all your sins.



Our celebrity examples of The Automatic Love Addict start with the man who is sometimes considered the greatest lover of them all, Giacomo Casanova (born April 2, 1725 adb.) Of course, this estimation is based largely on claims made in his autobiography in which he details his sexual adventures across four decades and a dozen of so countries. Many of his encounters were quick and forgettable but Casanova was capable of falling in love and he did so several times.

Another example of this type noted for his fascination with sex was the British explorer Sir Richard Burton (born March 19, 1821 adb.) Though happily married, Burton vast knowledge of sex and his 16 volume translations The Arabian Nights, complete with all it erotic passages and his extensive footnotes, made him a pariah within the prime Victorian world into which he was born.

Then we have three tortured artists: Billie Holiday (born April 7, 1915 adb,) who struggled with drug addiction and a string of unstable and abusive lovers and husbands,·Vincent Van Gogh (born March 30, 1853 adb,) who struggled with mental illness and Heath Ledger (born April 4, 1979 wik,) whose promising career was cut short by an accidental drug overdose.

Happier examples include actress Michele Pfeiffer (born April 29, 1958 adb) and English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning (born March 6, 1806 adb,) who was a reclusive invalid, addicted to morphine until her poetry attracted the attention of another noted poet, Robert Browning. The two writers were married when she was 39 and lived the proverbial “happily ever after.” After the consummation of their marriage Barrett Browning wrote that she was “living as in a dream.”
