Love is not always love ... especially not when it comes to obsessive love.
We've seen the formula on many of our TV shows: infatuation turns to an unhealthy obsession which sometimes turns into full-on stalking.
There are various types of obsessive love.
There's the outright stalker that hopes his good charms win over the girl before he eventually kills her.
There's also the obsessed lover who hides behind a computer screen or mask, and then there are the subtler stalkers who think their behaviors are totally normal when, in fact, they're 100% creepy and dangerous.
But the one thing they all have in common?
The desire to possess and control the person they have strong feelings for without accepting rejection.
And this doesn't just pertain to men; women can be just as psychologically manipulative.
Take a look below at some of the most obsessive love stories on TV!
