Hey guys, here's what I'd like to know . . . How do you know when you are in love?? Is it a feeling you get? Is it something he/she does? Is it they the way you both get along? or is it just because you heart skips a bit when you're with him/her or when you hear his/her voice?? HOW DO YOU KNOW??

Well, All I know is that you want him/her to be with you all the time.. you don't want her/him be out of your sight, and that your heart beats so fast when he/she is near.. :) Feels like heaven when he/she is around and in your arms.. :)

Mmmmmh that's quite nice . . . it sounds like you've been in love before and was a good experience for you or maybe you are in love now. Are you?? If so, tell me more . . .

Yeah.. I'm still in love with my husband even before, nothing has changed.. I even love him more each day.. He and our son are the precious things to me right now.. I don't care what other people will say, as long as they are with me, everything will be fine.. And, remember that, always believe the one you love, and always be there for them.. When you are in love you always see the good side of him/her.. As if he/she is the "perfect" person in the world.. :)

I asked my mom that when I was dating this guy. "How can I know if I'm in love?" She said, "If you have to ask, you probably aren't." That proved to be good advice that I should have listened to. Now, I'm dating someone, and we are in love. We just know. Honestly, it is this feeling that wells up inside you to the point that you feel like you could burst or yell or smile until your face freezes. You just know. It's a terrible answer, and I complained that it was not very useful before I knew what it felt like. However, it is the truth. You just know. Also, if you have to ask if you are in love, you're most likely not.

I never really took much stock in it for myself. But.... It's a pretty deep thing... I think that it's just wanting to be there with them, where you can just sit there with 'em and not realize how long you've been there, when you can say a million things with no words...or three short ones. And more than that, I really think it's ...closure. Finding what you're looking for. In yourself and in life. You kinda figure out what it's all begun to mean and you could have never done it without that one person to...well, light up the way. You owe them, and they owe you...and you pay it off through the years, even though you know you'll still be in debt at the end. Schmaltzy, long, and confusing, but hey, isn't that love anyway?

Hi Becky, I'm sorry I have been off line the past 3 days. It sounds like you know what you are talking about, perhaps you are in those shoes, if so I am happy for you. Love is a wonderful feeling!

Knowing that you are in love is very easy. First of all, you start to care more for that person than for yourself. You start loving both yourself and that person. That is, you love yourself- i mean you start giving much consideration to your look, speech,etc..You keep thinking of that person days and nights, and you write her name whenever there is a pen in your hands. You write all what she likes, what she does in life,etc..You start listening to romantic movies. You become a bit lost until he/she says he/she loves you too...I think that's a bit how one behave when in love..:)
