Well it seems like a banal question You will probably answer 'yes' and finish your part in this discussion Is it because you really do not want to define what love is? There is a big difference between loving and falling in love. Alote of us love but did we really ever fall in love? Or was it just, we needed to love and fell for love with love itself and There showed out this lovely person from nowhere..and we got hoocked?? I know I always thaught I fallen in love with my partners But I found out I love them dearly but there were no butterflies in my stomach..till I fell in love And that was just a few years ago some would say..ah late bloomer But the discovery seemed like the results of a big bomb exploding.. I could not sleep, I could not eat and we could not part. we even had to work close to each other.. well did you ever fall in love? And if you did not..why do you think it didn't happen yet ?? Is it possible that your love has "visited" you but you were afraid to 'open up the door'??. Do share:)

Trinity & Neo - Trinity and Neo from the trilogy The Matrix.
Oh I've fallen and haven't got back up yet :) I fell hard for my husband almost twelve years ago. I was the same way - thought I had fallen in love before but it was all just the newness of the relationship. I have loved of course - but falling in love or just being in love is completely different than loving someone. I am so thankful that at an early age I found love and still have it. He's my Mr. Wonderful and my love supply.

Yes I totaly know where what you saying .I too have fallen in love and afterwards could not eat or sleep.Fallen inlove is the most wonderful thing in the world and if it doesnt work out it leaves a hugh impact on us cause we want that beautiful feeling again we felt when with the person we lived.I think praying and not giving up hope that some day it will happen again and stay with the person for life.

I have been to several relationships in the past and all those time, I thought I was in love with my partners. Time went by and I realized that I was just attracted to them and was amazed by all the attention and care that I was receiving. Those relationships were nice. It gave meaning to my youthful days. But being young for me then was to be with a guy who I can call "MY BOYFRIEND", just like all the nice and famous ladies in the university... I wanted to belong to that Cluster of Ladies. Now that I am married and a mother of a baby boy, I can proudly say that i am loving and being loved in return... I am not falling in love, but RISING IN LOVE. When I met my husband, who is 24 years older than me, I felt the so called "magic". That time, even a lot of people were criticizing my decision to be in a relationship with him, I did not care of all the criticisms, advices and opinions of other people. That moment, I was only hearing what he was saying. Now that we are almost 2 years married, I still feel butterflies in my stomach!!! Every morning, I feel hapy to wake up seeing him beside me. Everynight I sleep with a smile knowing that the one I love dearly is very close of me. I am rising in love with him. My love for him grows more evry single day.

I dont know if what I'm about to tell you will convince you that i'm inlove ...i've been single for almost 3 yrs now,and during those times, i tried dating, but none of them was just the right one for me... until recently, i met someone..unexpectedly, we then started going out...believe me, the first time that i ever saw this guy,right there and then, i already knew that he was the one...we dated several times, we exchange sweet messages and even compliment each other... i wanted to tell him how much i love him...but something's just holding me back...i love someone who loves somebody else...:( as much as i wanted to show how important he is in my life, i just couldn't... i'd rather choose not to tell him for i dont want to be confronted,i don't want to be hurt and most importantly..i dont wanna know the truth... they always say that truth sets you free...but for me, i dont want that freedom without him...well, you may think that i'm stupid,i guess i am.. but until now i'm still hoping that maybe someday,somehow...ill find the way to his heart, and he'll woke up one day realizing that he loves me...i love him...and thats how it's gonna be...

i don't think that you are stupid this is a very complicated situation i personally believe that if you love someone who love sombody else it is better for you to set him free but i think you should to things at satges like your mind tells you to.

Love is nothing more than a someone you can hand-in-hand with he/her. That's what I realized and desire for. When you think of the poem of Lord Byron, "She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies All that's the best of dark and bright Meet in her aspects and eyes" it really hooks you. A old saying is correct, "When people fall in love, their hearts are full while their minds are empty". Once love came to knock my door but I didn't grasp the chance. I didn't meet her for nearly 8 months. I wonder when I could meet her. Our relationship was becoming watery as common friends. A phrase in Chinese really expresses the right meaning, as "???"(It means to be a period that you are seemingly out of emotion, but I could not translate it into English appropriately). And I am in such a period. I regretted to miss such a chance. I have the chance to approach her, but I don't dare to meet her now. I am just searching for a chance.

i have never been in love. that is a fact. ha ha! but in the event that my true love will come one day, i would say to him that "what took you so long?, i've been waiting for you for so long." ha ha! i would be the happiest person in the world if i would find the man that is meant for me. i just have to wait for like the message in the text: be patient for God knows what He is doing, He is just waiting the right moment to give us the man/woman who is meant for us. I believe that I just have to wait and I believe that God will not be wrong in choosing the right one for me. :)

At first, i don't believe having that "butterfly stomach" when you are and you fall inlove. Until, I myself have experienced it. Every time I see her, every time we talk, even on the phone, I always have these "butterflies in the stomach". We spent hours talking on the phone. Most of the time, i felt like crazy. She's the only person I can only think of, she's the only person I always have on my mind. I even wrote down her name on every piece of paper my hand can get. It was a good feeling. We came to know each other more. I loved her more. It brought me so much joy.

Twice. One of which is unrequitted, the other which I'll always have even though it ended badly (just pray you never fall in love with a multiple personality and lose the personality you fell for..it sounds like one of those terribly sweet and angsty teenage anime dramas but trust me, it SUCKS). I know what love is lol. The butterflies are distracting, being addicted to someone..can kinda suck lol..it just all depends I guess. It is sad how many people don't know what real love is, though.

I thought many times that I was in love. I married my boyfriend from highschool after being with him for many years. I said yes because I thought I owed it to him since we had been together so long. I knew he had problems but I overlooked them. I regret that except that I do have two beautiful daughters. I remember hsi friends telling me to not do it because they saw what he really was. I was blind to the obvious. I have dated several men since but there was always that doubt in the back of my mind. It would nag at me and I would always get hurt by something they said or did. I was beginning to think that I was meant to stay single. Then I met a man who swept me off my feet. He wasn't anything like the type of guy I thought I would end up with. I discovered a while back that what I wanted is the guy I can't live without, not the guy I could settle for or put up with. It isn't about money or fame. This man is not tall, or muscular or rich or famous. He makes me smile and think and reconsider what my goals are. He may be moving in a couple of months and I am hurting at the thought of him possibly moving away across the continent. I don't want to live without him. I think this is what love is and now I pray that this is my happy ending, my knight in shining armor, as it were.

I fell in love in a big big way lol. We talked on the phone for hours at a time, we emailed and texted each other. He ran up a huge $5000 phone bill (He lived in Canada, I lived in the UK). The first time I flew out to meet him, I was so nervous. I didn't sleep for a week before, I felt sick when I ate, and every time I thought about him, I got butterflies. When I set eyes on him, all my emotions swept over me at once and I threw my arms around him. Who cares that there were about 1000 people watching LOL. Not me! We spent 4 weeks together, and then I had to fly back to the UK to sort my affairs out. 6 weeks later, I flew back into his arms and we haven't been apart since. We call each other soulmates. We fit together perfectly, we know what the other is thinking and we spend ALL our free time together. It would kill us if we had to be parted. That we're both sure of. I know this is a rambling response lol, and I'm sorry, but I hope I got my point across.

Love is like a rosary full of mysteries. For me, it is love when you accept that person for who he or she is depsite his or her negative attitudes. Love has visited me but I was so afraid to open up the door. I felt so regretful. But it made me realize that opportunities shoulc not be wasted. I did fall in love once and it was unrequited.

I think falling in love is the beggining and love is the long term that comes from close relationship - what makes relationships last longer. I fell inlove many times. Those butterflies in the stomache, the excitment, the want-to-see-her-all-the-time feeling... After some time (it might be a year or more) it passes and usualy there is not much that remains - excitment's gone, and love fades. This time, it is not the case - there is so much love now, after more than 2 and a half years, that we decided to get married (that decision by itself brought those butterflies back...). We can part, but there is always that something missing when we are not toghether, and when we meet after a long time of seperation, we explode from feelings to one another ( a long time can be a weekend - friday noon till saturday evening...). I don't know many things that might make me stop eating or sleeping or going to the gym... but I know I love her, and it is surly not a fall - I feel elevated!

In all honesty, NO, I have never truly fallen in love, for me love doesn't exist in that context and I accept the way it is, that I will never find anyone, and to be honest I don't want to, after two doomed relationships and being with them for convenience never for love I have decided that love is not for me.
