It is a very common question,"how can I tell I'm in love"?What feels like love to one person may be nothing more than attraction to one another.Do you wonder what is going on in your relationship.Is it love,lust or bust?

I think it's okay if love begun by physical attraction. And then, we should learn about the true love which includes self giving, caring, etc. Sometime, there is lust in the relationship. It's okay as long as we're not trapped in that thing. We still have times to learn to love with a true love.

And what if the love that began with physical attraction doesn't change into true love with passing time?

That is a very difficult question if you haven't experienced the feeling..I tell you the feeling is very complicated but you will just know that your already in love because it is very different from other feelings.. I fall in love at the age of 14..I thought it was only an infatuation so I broke with him easily but I was really wondering why I feel different about him.. my heart beats fast whenever my phone rang and saw his name on the screen..I don't know why i still see him as perfect even though I am aware of his imperfections..I broke with him and its too late for me to realize that I was actually in love with him..I tried to win him back but i failed cos it's already too late..he's with another girl already and what hurts most is that he blamed me why he's into that girl..It took me 5 years to move on..I tried lots of relationship but the feeling for my ex was still a feeling that cannot be compared even though i tried to feel the same way with the other guys, I still failed..

You know love is very hard to explain and even to know if you are already in love or just having a fantasy over a person. For me love is when you cannot explain what is the meaning of it and when you do not know anymore where to compare it, like compare what you fill to how wide the galaxy is. That is love for me, but you know love cannot be felt in just a matter of seconds and even weeks, love is like a building or a tower that is needed a foundation in order for it to be strong, for it to survive no matter how strong an earthquake will shake your love you will never get separated.

this is very difficult to answer but what i feel is that love starts from the time you have eye contact with the person you love and the feeling at that moment is amzaing and actually when you love somebody you and that person is with you and you will not be able to look directly into his/her eyes and when ever the person is with you, you feel happy and forget whats on your mind and love is something that cant be expressed in words...when you love someone you will become insomanic...unable to sleep at night and what you will do is to think about that person all the time, so if you are encountering any of these, then you are in love..
