- Love is a luxury thing to me now, so I don't dare think about it anymore.
- I think ".........a luxury to me now,........." is better, right?

Thanks a lot!

    I've heard this kind of idiom ("thing") in very informal speech, although I'm not quite sure how natural it sounds here. I guess "thing", which is somewhat redundant, emphasizes love as an object. I think it would be better not to use it though and use your alternative. However if you wanted to be somewhat cynically droll you might say "Love is a luxury item to me now". ;)
