What makes you realize that you've fallen in love?

I am just curious as to what makes people consciously realise that they have fallen in love with a person

For me I dont really understand the concept of love, i can feel when I start have feelings for someone but I can snap out of it real easy

So i just wanna know whether I actually have ever fallen in "love" with a person or is it just that I can climb out of the well before I fall any deeper

I also have rooted this fact deep in my head that I might never find love. So whenever I feel for someone I just have to tell myself that they wont reciprocate the feeling ever.. maybe thats why i can snap out of it real easy

I am an average looking 22 year old girl who has trust issues who has never had a boyfriend because I never found anyone worth my time & casual relationships is a thing I dont really consider

Is it normal that I am like this?

  • For me it's when I can't do things properly around them, I think about hanging out with them a lot, and I think about the things they like. Then when I realized I fancy this person, I want to kick myself in the head so my apathetic ass can stop being in love with them.

  • In my case I think of her all day, since I wake up until I go to sleep. I have her in my mind, I spend my day with her in my heart. I feel like shivering sometimes, other times like physical pain in my stomach, when I can't have her. It's makes me so unclear about my life and not having her makes me suffer greatly. I just fell in love with a girl and it was the first time in my life it was reciprocal. However, the Universe placed us in two different worlds and my bitterness is excruciating.

  • i mean i feel like im in the same boat as you... but then i hear people say "Love isnt a just a feeling, it's a choice." and so i guess i'm just trying to find the right person that i can "choose" to love.. /:

  • I believe love is when you would do absolutely anything for them, you would die for them. You are selfless with them. You feel their pain and Joy. You would rather suffer than see them suffer.

    • I have seen people go about the ame way but how can someone still have feelings when they know the other person will not reciprocate it

      They feel more i dont get why
      Feelings should automatically start declining right?

      • It’s hard and painful when someone you love doesn’t love you back, but you can’t really help how you feel.

        Im my experience when you really love someone it doesn’t matter if they love you back or not. As long as he was happy, I was happy for him. Of course it hurt, but I wanted what was best for him and understood that I wasn’t.
        I don’t know if this made any sense haha

  • Philosophers have been debating that forever. In my opinion you will know when you want to be with the other person as much as possible. You care deeply about them and want to help them feel their best. You will be confident they love you as much as you love them.

    It's all chemistry. When you meet the right person you will know and know what I was trying to explain.

  • Love typically starts off as a physical attraction, not always but most the time. You just want to talk and be with that person, you want to support them and make them happy.
    From there it's more complicated as it depends on the person.
    Some people lose their minds and hate everyone else in their partners life while for others the love becomes something they just couldn't do without.

  • DDaviDD summed it best I think but the other answers were good.

    Another part though is if you are dating someone you are in love with, you tend to over-analyze everything they say and do. Things you would not normally notice about others will start to stand out about your crush/love.
    Like if they text back too short a response, or maybe something seemed "off" about the way they said "good night" or whatever.

  • For me love is when it makes your heart feel like it's glowing like neon...well that's how I feel anyway.

  • I had a bf once and we were happy together but when he asked me to marry him I just knew that I couldn't do it, that he was not the one. With my husband it was different. Things just evolved naturally. I don't even remember who talked first about moving together. it just happenend.

    You'll know when it's love.
