What is love bombing, you say? It is a tactic used by some people to manipulate someone into jumping into a relationship sooner or more seriously than they'd like to. It's typically done by people who have a history of being in abusive relationships, are narcissists, or have and anxious attachment style. This behavior can last anywhere from weeks to a few months. Once the person engaging in the action(s) desired goal has been reached there will be a sudden shift in behavior. They will go from Dr. Jekyll (knight in shining armor) to Mr. Hyde (becoming your worst nightmare). It is important to set boundaries and recognize when love bombing is happening very early on.
