Top definition
A deep, often depressing, feeling of wanting to find love; to be loning for love; to be without a companion to share ones life with, though it is desired deeply.

(Don't believe the other definition that has all those thumbs up for saying it is being in love and "drawing hearts in the sand" and stuff, becauase that is the opposite, that is lovestruck, not lovesick).
Lovesick is like homesick.

Homesick people are away from home but want to be home.

Lovesick people are away from love and want to be in love.

A physical feeling you can get. Some people truly think it doesn't exist. Simply because they have never experienced it. It could be as little as missing their other half and waiting by the phone just to see a text or receive a call. In other cases, you can get physically sick over it. It's less common but it is very possible to actually throw up because of the pain. It feels like a major cramp in your stomach, perhaps a bad case of the butterflies. Some people end up not eating or sleeping much. It is a lot more serious that many people perceive it to be. Some are not able to come out of Love Sickness until they are really reunited with their love, whether or not they were actually dating. Love Sickness can be filed in through having a crush, being in love, having a boyfriend/girlfriend, being married, and it also can wash over you after a break up. Love Sickness is hard to cure and takes time and affection from others. It is no game.
"Hey bro whats wrong?"

"Emily and I got into a fight. Every minute I'm alone, the worse my love sickness gets..."

"Im sorry bro. Too mushy for me though man."

When you are so in love with someone that every single emotion you could possibly have is all wrapped up into one intense feeling.

You can imagine them, and you shake.

You can go days without eating anything.

Everything else fades in the background when you see them, and you can barely speak.

You feel like you have the chills, but you are really just wrapped up in love.

So deeply affected by love as to be unable to act normally. It may be reciprocated or unreciprocated.

When it comes to studies or work, you get distracted and misfocus easily cos the face of your crush appears in your mind every millisecond.

Your mind is preoccupied with thoughts of s/he.

You will eventually begin to find it hard to enjoy your everyday life and would rather be alone and think of s/he.

Slowly, your social life and you school/work life will be affected.

You will be more interested in the person's life more than the lives of the people around you, in fact, your 99.999% of your mind is filled with thoughts of him/her.

Whenever you are out of your house, you will hope to see him/her. Unknowingly, after your work/school, you will appear at places where both of you met or the places where you think s/he might have a higher possibility of appearing.

You begin to be very conscious about your every move and seem to be always smiling when you are near him.

If you admire him from afar, you may rehearse the moments when both your eyes are met.

You will begin to have a terribe habit of trying to "overananalyzing" the person's every move, finding evidence that s/he is secretly in love with you too.

When you start to think that s/he might not even know your existence or might not even like you a tiny puny bit, you become unreasonably depressed.When it comes to studies or work, you get distracted and misfocus easily cos the face of your crush appears in your mind every millisecond.

To be lovesick means to suffer from an unrequitted love or deception.

Lovesickness has its own symptons, such as insomnia, depression, loss of appetite, loss of interest in everyday life and work, obsessive thoughts, mental intrusions and a frequent inclination to cry.

In the past, lovesickness was commonly recognized and diagnosed by doctors as an inhabilitating illness and received its own prescriptions.

In spanish lovesick means "mal de amor" and in latinamerican countries such as Colombia or Mexico it has its special celebrating day.

To be lovesick is to deviate from physical and emotional 'normality'. In other words, you walk around like the walking dead, feeling empty, chest crushing, longing for that special someone. That special someone doesn't have to be a love interest. It could be a relative you've loved and lost, it could be a friend you've loved and have separated from.


When you're lovesick, you dream and think about person X a lot. Of course, that is just another symptom of lovesickness.


Life for the lovesick is just one big question mark.


Symptoms of lovesickness: sadness/depression, anxiety, crying, feeling suicidal, mourning, loneliness, loss of interest in your social life, loss of ambition, emptiness, weight loss/weight gain.

*J thinks about it*

J: What do you think you're doing?
M: I'm just being your friend.
J: That's why I'm lovesick.
M: =\

*Awkward silence*

M: What are you saying?
J: You're so slow. *Gets shitfaced and cries like a baby*
