Women Who Love Too Much is a self-help book by Robin Norwood published in 1985.

The book, which was a number one seller on the New York Times Best Seller list's "advice and miscellaneous" category in 1987,[1] is credited with "spawn[ing] a cottage industry in the therapy community."[2] Its premise, that women who get "mired in obsessive relationships"[3] are to help themselves, was criticized by some feminist scholars.[4]
