How could I know if I suffer erotomania?

How could I know if I suffer erotomania?

Erotomania: Erotomania is the delusional belief that another person is in love with you. Sometimes the other person is famous or of higher social status; sometimes not. If you believe someone you've never even met is in love with you, this would be a very big clue. For any concerns along these lines, you could consult a psychiatrist or other mental health professional for an evaluation.

My father seems to have similar symptoms to erotomania. How can I be sure if he has it and what should I do to help?

My father seems to have similar symptoms to erotomania. How can I be sure if he has it and what should I do to help?

Erotomania: I must have more information... What are the symptoms you refer to? Is there a negative consequence of his behavior? Is he concerned about the situation or are only you concerned? In what city do you live?

Does erotomania symptoms includes creating realistic stories that didn't happen and ask you not to reveal anything they tell you to their "lover"?

Way too detailed!: The DSM 5 doesn't even incl that condition as a Dx but if it did they'd not be so specific in a symptom. Psych is not that defined. Even more impt is that you not try to diagnose yourself, family, friends or lovers. It's not helpful and can be disastrous. To not accept that behavior is fine! To declare that you don't want to play a role is fine. But avoid playing Dr. Best wishes!
