15SBD REWARD POOL WRITING CONTEST.

in contest •  5 months ago

On a good day while you were minding your business, this young man looking like someone from the movies approaches you and asks for a relationship. Not too long ago, you broke up with an abusive boyfriend. One who never appreciated you or treated you right and you feel you like falling in love is now an impossibility but then this kind-hearted, beautiful soul sweeps you off your feet. He tells you all the right words, takes you to amazing places you've never been before , spoils you with gifts and never ceases to make you see how beautiful you are and then suddenly you start feeling butterflies in your stomach whenever you hear his voice and you think to yourself, this must be love

Ain't no way you are letting him go. He is an answer to your midnight prayers and yes you deserve him but if you won't have him, then no one else can.

It is sometimes difficult to differentiate between love and obsession. In an obsessive love, there is always an overwhelming desire by the obsessed partner to control or protect the person he or she feels strong attraction for and they are not ready to accept failure or rejection.

This leads them to become manipulative and controlling of the other person as if they were a possession. Sometimes it involves stalking and even in an extreme case, violence. So many reasons maybe responsible for someone developing an Obsessive Love Disorder (OLD)

For centuries, obsessive love has been romanticized in literature and today I seek to bring it back and make us tap into our imaginative mind and create beautiful scenes of obsessive love. Make your character scary, funny, frightening and even self righteous but above all their actions must be unpredictable.
