After setting their Tinder profiles to a broad radius, Simone Lourens and Tom Cashen, who usually live a two-hour drive away from one another, matched three weeks before a month-long lockdown in New Zealand.

Backpackers Carmen Adaja, who is from the Netherlands, and Rory Boggon, a Brit, are just wrapping up two weeks in quarantine in a hotel room in Hong Kong, having previously only spent six days together. The pair originally met in Cambodia and continued their travels separately, but they both rushed to Hong Kong as other places in the region began closing borders. He arrived just before Hong Kong introduced a day quarantine period for tourists, but Adaja landed a day after, so they decided to wait things out together. So far there have been no arguments, while Adaja credits Boggon with helping her handle a difficult period, during which her grandmother has passed away and her aunt has contracted the virus.

And sometimes the relationship is worth saving, but how and why? Some even cheat as a means of breaking up.

So rather than having a conversation to end the relationship, which may be uncomfortable, they just move on and break hearts in the process. Sometimes they may have been sending signals for a while that they are not committed to the relationship any longer, but the person they are dating is not recognizing the signs or is choosing to ignore them. Unfortunately, I get lots of comments from people who were clearly in toxic relationships. They know it, and probably everyone around them knows it too.
They have been used and hurt and almost certainly will be used and hurt some more. But they cannot bring themselves to leave. The people who hang on despite it all likely have a love addiction. Love addiction is a lot like other addictions in that a person obsessively and compulsively tries to relieve or medicate the deep pain in their life with feeling loved. If someone is a love addict, they think they cannot live without the other person no matter how toxic, and you will do just about anything to keep the relationship alive.

So read on, and remember to tread carefully. When you’re in love with someone, your natural instinct is to want to share every detail of your life with them. Normally this person is your significant other, but if your heart is with someone else, you might find that your confidante is no longer your partner, but a new pal whom you may or may not realize you’re falling for. You might be well aware that the person you’re falling in love with is rude, unclean, or even a well-known player.
But even so, you’ll defend their bad habits and character traits any time someone else brings them up in conversation. When someone is taking up a large chunk of real estate in your mind, they’re likely also going to come up often in conversation. Even if you’re talking to a friend about something as simple as the weather, you’ll find a way to weave an anecdote about this person in and make them relevant, just because they’re all you can think about.
So if you find yourself volunteering to stay late just because a certain someone is also working after hours, then you might have a little coworker crush on your hands.

At Eagle Point Elementary, where I went for third grade, there was one very cute boy. Jason was the object of affection for seemingly every third-grade girl. He would make a list each day of the five girls he thought were the cutest. The list changed every day. What did that even mean? I still remember the elation when I edged out my friend Caroline for the top spot. It was short-lived. Caroline was tough to beat. In my twenties, I dated a guy who ran cold and hot with me, leaving me insecure and obsessing over the relationship.
It was initially very painful, and I questioned if I had pulled the plug too quickly. Either way, I had dodged a bullet. Here is a scenario I see play out often in my psychotherapy practice: You meet someone and fall in love. Your partner is happy in the relationship, but not ready to move forward.

I was a young professional with a career and my own money. Of course, there are a few military girlfriends who give the title a bad name. They lack character and morals.
