What Is A Love Zombie?

 Love Zombie is a term used by Mystic for when people go into a full-on delusional autopilot mindset around a love interest, especially in scenarios where they know better. When in Love Zombie mode people abandon rationality, creativity, and good judgment to spend hours stalking someone on the internet. 

Or they let their current love obsessions get away with all kinds of crap. E.g., He’s married, the sex is terrible and he owes me $20,000 but I feel like he is my past life karmic soul mate and I need to stick it out.  

Love Zombie conditions induce thoughts and behavior that we later are aghast at. As Mystic says, "it's karmic" is just as bad as the old "it's complicated." "Complicated" is usually actually quite simple - they're married or otherwise unavailable. And "Karmic" is not necessarily an indicator that you should be together.
