Love is a beautiful feeling. It may not always be, particularly for your boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife. We feel love for our parents, friends and relatives. This beautiful feeling may be horrible when we do not get the same love by our partner as expected. We may get depressed, feel lonely and in the worst case, may get lovesickness.Lovesickness is described as the informal syndrome covering physical as well as mental symptoms of rejected or one-sided love or absence of love ones. Lovesickness is not only a feeling like love, but it is the mental disorder which can impact our health.
