Is someone showering you with attention and affection too soon? In this segment of “What’s Trending”, guest MHTN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dan Bober discusses the manipulative tactic known as “love bombing.” He explains why it can be so appealing, especially for certain individuals, and helps us identify the warning signs.

Dr. Bober highlights common phrases that might signal love bombing, such as:

“I’ve never met anyone like you before.”

Early, excessive idealization can be a red flag, particularly from someone who doesn’t know you well.

“You’re the only person who has ever really understood me.”

This absolute, all-or-nothing language is concerning, especially in the beginning stages of a relationship.

“I will never love anyone else like I love you.”

While romantic on the surface, Dr. Bober explains that this type of statement often plays into the manipulative cycle of love bombing.
