    Se dice "obsesión con" o "obsesión por"? "Obsesionado con" o "obsesionado por." (¿O es "de'?)

    Hola Soyyo,
    How would you use that expression in the sentence? If you want to say I am obsessed with boys, It sounds better to say "Los chicos me obsesionan" It is one of those words in Spanish that sounds better backwards (like "me gusta").

    I don't know why but, to me, "los chicos me obsesionan" sounds as if a Spaniard were talking. :D ;)
    I definitely would say "estoy obsesionada(o) con..."

    Best regards, :)

    EDIT: I'm sorry, you also want to know what to use with "obsesión". :D Well, I would say "obsesión por", but "obsesión con" doesn't sound wrong to me...
    For example: "tengo una obsesión por los chicos".
