Can anyone tell me how you know you are in love or have met the person with whom you should spend the rest of your life with? I met a lady. She has kids who I get along well with and them with me. I like her company. But I want to have a child of my own and she can't have any. I don't know what to do.....

Everyone feels different when they fall in love. I cannot speak for men and how they feel. I think men deal with it different. I know my husband would call me all the time just to say hi or goodnight. That was one of his signs. As far as her not beng able to have more kids and you wanting one, well I would really think about that. It all depends on you here. If you cannot deal with not having a child of your own then I would leave her alone now before the kids really get attached to you. If you really love her and want to make it work then the fact that those kids are not of your blood won't really matter much. My husband and I do not have any kids together nad he never had any kids of his own. I have 3 kids from previous relationship and he feels as if they are his and treats them as if they were and my kids love him dearly and would not have it any other way. I hope this helps.

Thanks for that. at this stage I get on really well with her kids and I love them as if they were my own. I'm not sure wherther I can handle never haveing my own child at this point. But I'll have to think about it.

Love is something that makes you loose yourself...You are more inclined to the person whom you like..and feel that person much alz be with you forever..you enjoy his company...You keep on thinking for days together for the moments you spend with him...the beautiful moment that you enjoyed in his company...You feel like being passionate with that person...always wait for his phone calls...read out messages that he has sent to u again and again in his absence...crave for his company... This is all the signs and symptoms of falling in Love... Considering your question...If u really love that lady just go for her...dont matter about the other issues about her kids or any other difficulties..forget about it....Just express your feelings to her...and the question of kids...if u really love..you would accept them and treat and tender them as your own....

I guess the only thing I can say is first and foremost IMO when you are IN love, YOU KNOW...I can't explain it better than that though..You just KNOW...YOu feel it in every ounce of your being right down to the deepest part of your soul....
