Does “be obsessed with” have a negative meaning?
Answer from a Native speaker
Not always. "Being obsessed" with something means that you really like something. A person can be obsessed with music, food, animals, etc. It just depends on how the obsession affects your daily life. An obsession is usually considered negative when it negatively affects your daily life. Ex: She's so obsessed with him that she's stopped hanging out with her friends. Ex: He's obsessed with going to the gym.
