I talked to someone online from a different country about a month ago. Ended it bc it was getting serious and I'm married. 

Since then, I research everyday about the culture, dress, food. Anything do with the middle East. I even follow the prime minister of the country on Twitter. It's so consuming researching that I wake with anxiety.

I read your post, but I really don't have any helpful response except to note that you are playing with fire with regard to your spouse and your marriage. But I think you know that already.

I don't have anything else to add. My obsessions never centered around people. Perhaps your best bet would be to discuss this with your therapist.

I can relate to this. It often confuses me if I'm in love with the person or just obsessed. This problem ceased to exist when I approached 100mg of Zoloft when I could interpret my feelings clearly. But I was also feeling a near equal attraction to both genders while on it, which I find interesting.
 

My current method for discharging obsessions with people I get to know is by taking small doses of psychedelics whenever I feel the obsession is unhealthy (I get this might not be your thing, but works effectively for me)

I wish you the best.

Thank you everyone. My pdoc said I have OCD and that's why I'm focusing on this. She said the only thing to help me is counseling. She screwed me over on medicine and think my mind can't handle anymore medicine

I need help

i do this too. i would say i'm obsessed with at least one person at any given time and have been that way since 5th grade.  it really sucks. as with anything else i would try to keep your mind occupied on other things as best as you can and try to avoid things that remind you of them.

Same here. If you or anyone has figured out how to break the cycle, it would be greatly appreciated if they shared.

I have it too sometimes. Good news is it never hurted my marriage, bad news, I think it's related to mental problems like mine, but hey, at least you're specialised now in Middle East politics.

At least your obsession will not give any fruits in regards to finding that person, but ive been obsessed whit people in the past, the best thing for me was to accept hat they were just unreachable and that i needed to move on.

I want to let you all know you give me hope in a world where I feel trapped. I want a divorce only because of my obsessions. Most can divorce with no trouble but my daughter couldn't make it through. She loves her father. I love Arabs. I have been in 5 online relationships and wanted to marry them all. I hope you can relate and give me hope once more.

I think you are just thinking whit your guts, you are in a situation were your obsession is starting to distort your reality to a very dangerous point, i myself passed trough this kind of obsession whit a person and i can tell you whit the hearth in my hand that the very best you can do is to seek psychological and psychiatric help to calm the sea of darkness were obsession takes us.
