love-bombing
 n.— «He said Opus Dei makes it difficult for relatives to contact members living in the group’s residence halls, that it engineers events to make recruits believe they have been chosen by God, and that members use a technique called “love-bombing” to flatter vulnerable young people into feeling accepted, which he said is similar to practices used by groups such as the Moonies and Hare Krishna.» —“Opus Dei members: ‘Da Vinci’ distorted” by Abbott Koloff Daily Record (Parsippany, New Jersey) May 14, 2006.
