Lovesickness occurs after being rejected by someone your in love with, unrequited love or due to an absence of a loved one. It is also described as a "negative feeling" associated to being rejected by someone.

To most people it seems as though being "lovesick" would just be missing someone, or being a deeper depression due to missing someone. But Lovesickness actually comes with physical and mental symptoms that are no fun at all.

And with some personalities, being lovesick can actually lead to very serious physical or mental illness.

Quotes & Sayings About Lovesickness


*Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

*If you do not express your own original ideas,
if you do not listen to your own being,
you will have betrayed yourself.
- Rollo May

*I think television has betrayed the meaning of democratic speech,
adding visual chaos to the confusion of voices.
What role does silence have in all this noise?
- Federico Fellini

*Look at our Lords disciples.
One denied Him; one doubted Him; one betrayed Him.
If our Lord couldn't have perfection,
how are you going to have it in city government?
- Richard J. Daley
