• Possessiveness can be a form of infatuation to the point that someone has put the other person on a pedestal, which is a mistake from the start if the person decided to forget that the person on the pedestal also has faults and is human as well.
  • I would call it a dysfunction more than I would instanity. It has nothing to do with love and easily confused most times. However, it's nature of the beast in most, sadly so and hard for one to recognize if they don't learn more about it to change that emotion.
  • Possessiveness is nothing curbing the freedom and growth of another person. It could be a cruel act. This only detrooys relationships and causes disasters.
  • Well, let's look up the meanings. Possessive: Relating to ownership or possession. Love: A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness. Nope, it's not another form of love, nor is it insanity. It implies ownership.
  • Possessiveness and Love do not go any time...for any reason! A person is not a possession! A piece of furniture is a possession! Possessiveness can be deeply rooted to insecurity problems and low self would be a form of a mental instablilty in one self...requires concelling and could led into an abusive relationship if left untreated! Love does not hurt...possessiveness does!
  • insanity - possessiveness is so far from love that one must be insane to mix the two up.
  • I wouldn't call it a form of love. And on the far end of the spectrum it could show itself as insanity yet on the other a human inclination that we all have to some degree or another. The level of intensity of the emotion of jealousy would be a good indicator.
