It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
In general, there are more self-identified female love addicts than male love addicts. Nevertheless, males are perfectly capable of becoming love addicted, just as females are perfectly capable of becoming sex and porn addicted. One primary difference between male and female love addicts is the way in which they tend to view and talk about their issues. Women are more likely than men to identify what they are doing as relationship-related, whereas men typically classify their behavior as sexual, even when their activities are as connection driven as those of their female counterparts.
