    We all know that one person who always seems to be in and out of relationships. Is it a good or bad thing?

    FOX's Ashley Papa has this week's "FOX on Love":

    We all know people who-it seems like they're always in a relationship. Could it be that they're that desirable, or could it be an addiction to love?

    Addiction specialist, Aimee Noel, says, the chemicals associated with being in love, can be addictive to some:

    (Noel) " Looking for a rush of those chemicals that are released when you are starting to engage in a relationship. Endorphins to numb pain, dopamine to give pleasure and the rush going on."

    Noel says love at its core is what we strive for, but when dependency takes over, that's when it can be self-destructive:

    (Noel) "The obsession and compulsion to be with this other person, you start breaking all your rules and its affecting the other aspects of your life so that you don't have balance, that's definitely something to look at."

    Noel says ask yourself if you choose relationships because you love the other person or just trying to fill a void. It may help you determine if you're hooked on love.
