4 Key Reasons Why You Fall in Love So Easily

You are in love once again! And as before, not only a little bit involved in a person, but passionately. Feelings of “I’ve finally met my forever soulmate” are emerging. Although you should be happy about that, things are different.

This is not the first time that the bells of your heart are ringing for someone. So, you’re worried about why you fell in love so quickly and unintentionally. Well, it might be possible that you have “emophilia, or “emotional promiscuity,” where a person tends to catch feelings for people faster.

According to the Journal of the Psychoanalysis of Society and Culture, when we’re in love, we suddenly start falling into the stream of amphetamines running through our brain’s emotional centers. And that’s why we feel manic, creative, and powerful — boosting up if we’re young.

But still, you may be wondering, “Why do I suddenly get involved in someone even though I know the consequences?” You’re not alone, and there are numerous people in the world having the same question!

Let’s dig in to explore its reasons and how you can stop yourself from doing that!

Reasons You Might Fall In Love Too Fast

Scientists revealed that falling in love can happen in just the 5th of a second and can be highly addictive. But why is it that you’re often doing it with different people so easily? 

Hold on! Below, we’ll get you through all the possible reasons that are making you do this:

1. Your Family and friends Take The Backseat 

If you’re not a family person and strive to make good friends, it’s certain that you’ll look for a partner to spend your time with. 

But guess what? It is equally essential to be mindful of the personal space of others, including your lovers’. Sometimes, you dig deeper into the life of that one person and ignore others.

You get excited to spend every minute with your soulmate. When this doesn’t work, you start to look for another match again, and the cycle proceeds. 

Understand other’s needs, lower your expectations, and treat them right!

2. You’re Escaping From Real-life Situations 

Do you often like to live in fantasies of love? Then, it might be one of the biggest reasons for you falling in love too quickly. 

New emotions are a way for you to escape from the real-life issues.

Generally, this behavior is linked with increased stress, anxiety, self-doubt, and fears. In this case, feelings for new life partners become evident.

It is also possible that you might be dealing with difficulties in your social or personal life. And to overcome them, you look for peace in the form of partners to feel good.

3. You Often Find People Compatible

It’s easier for you to find compatible people around you. Things like sexual attraction, shared interests, and chemistry might fuel that spark.

Compatibility is the key factor in falling in love; however, this word is usually misunderstood!

Nowadays, people get feelings for a person when they find a compatible match without knowing much about him/her. 

A recent study shows that there are millions of singles across the world who go to dating sites to meet a partner of their compatibility, which is a wrong criterion.

It’s not that people having profiles on these sites are wrong, but that it’s not good to judge a book by its cover. A person here might seem to be an ideal match, but in reality, things can be different.

4. You’re Afraid Of Loneliness

Another potential reason that you feel the need of a person is due to the fact that you feel empty and don’t want to be alone. 

Most cultures emphasize marriage and dating above singledom. Therefore, if you have not found your only partner, you may think that there’s something wrong and you’re alone.

This fear also leads to emophilia, and as a result, some individuals go from one relationship to another to avoid isolation feelings.

In a nutshell, you’re super motivated to indulge in relationships.

How Can You Avoid Falling In Love Quickly | 3 Effective Ways

Falling in love is a pattern that builds up and leads to addiction. Breaking this cycle might seem a daunting task, but it’ll be easier with determination and persistence.

So, do you want to stop falling in love so quickly? These tips and tricks will help!

1. Sidetrack Your Mind From Their Thoughts

If you can’t stop thinking about that person, you’ve got the least work to do in your life. See, love isn’t everything, and you have to find distractions to overcome this.

Just because you strive to find your “ideal partner” badly, it doesn’t mean that you should settle for anyone. Make some effort and try to pull your mind 1000 miles away from their thoughts.

Recognize your desires and follow other hobbies!

2. Prioritize Other Relationships

There are many other beautiful relationships around you that can make you feel loved. Remember that dating people blindly until you know someone trustworthy can be harmful.

Instead of changing partners again and again to look for a perfect fit, try finding peace in other relationships, like your friends or parents.

Find love within yourself, and set limits and boundaries for yourself!

3. Seek Therapy

Have you tried all methods, but nothing is working? If yes, it’s time to consider seeking therapy!

Whereas both women and men value long-term commitment, men are inclined to seek sexual opportunities with different partners.

Therefore, it might get hard for men to avoid falling in love easily without counseling. 

As a result, you can also seek therapy from a licensed therapist for better outcomes. They’ll help you understand why you have this attitude and steps to take in this regard.

Our Takeaway

No doubt, nothing is as peaceful and exciting as falling in deep love. When you get feelings of affection for someone else, your mind is inflamed with fantasies, desires, and hopes. Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it?

However, there is a famous proverb that says, “Excess of everything is bad.” And despite having so many positive aspects, falling in love again and again or quickly can signify an underlying concern, like low self-esteem or insecure attachment style. 

If you’re in the same situation, don’t be afraid of changing to begin self-changing. Know your real worth! This is because if you’re not aware of your own worth, you may have to experience issues in your love life and other relationships. 

Still, if nothing works, you always have a good choice to counsel with an expert so everything gets into place. Now, it’s time to fall in love with yourself and your goals. Strive to achieve them, and give yourself a strong foundation like never before!
