New Delhi: Falling in love is one thing but being addicted to love is something entirely different. This addiction could be a medical condition. This is what happened to an 18-year-old girl in China, who called her boyfriend “more than 100 times a day.” She has been diagnosed as suffering from a condition called “love brain”.

The alarming diagnosis followed a calamitous saga of obsession that landed the girl, identified only as Xiaoyu, in hospital and her boyfriend in distress, News18 reported.

Xiaoyu’s worrying behaviour began in her first year of university, said Du Na, a doctor at The Fourth People’s Hospital of Chengdu said, News 18 reported quoting the South China Morning Post.

As per the report, after Xiaoyu, a resident of Sichuan province in southwestern China, developed an intimate relationship with her boyfriend, she became heavily dependent on him and needed him around all the time. She started badgering him constantly to keep her updated about his whereabouts and also expected him to return her texts at all hours of the day and night.

This made her boyfriend’s life miserable as he felt uncomfortable and stifled.

A video clip of Xiaoyu also went viral where she was seen repeatedly messaging her boyfriend to switch on his WeChat camera. However, despite the man ignoring the messages, she makes video calls to him anyway.

As per the report, the situation went out of control after Xiaoyu called her boyfriend more than 100 times in a day and he did not answer. She became so upset over this that she started smashing household objects, leading her boyfriend to call the police to stop her.
