Butterflies in the stomach, palpitations, soft knees - falling in love is the total state of emergency. It's beautiful and exciting at the same time - and sometimes it scares a little bit too. But how can you differentiate between being in love and being pure fanaticism?
When you fall in love, the hormones in your body go roller coaster. They make you euphoric, boost your zest for life and make you float on cloud nine. By some typical signs, you realize whether you are currently in this "love rush":
- Your thoughts circle around him / her from morning to night - and sometimes these thoughts keep you awake at night.
- You would like to spend the whole day with him / her.
- You just want to know everything about him / her.
- You are terribly excited when you meet him / her.
- When he / she talks to you, you start to stammer and sometimes you do not even know what you're trying to say.
- When you meet or you think about him / her, you feel a tingling or fluttering in your stomach.
- If you say goodbye to each other after a meeting or you do not see each other for a long time, it will be hard for you.
As beautiful as being in love is - it also makes it very unsafe and vulnerable: Should I tell him / her what I feel? Does he / she like me too? What if he / she does not return my feelings? Such questions can be quite annoying. Still, do not hide your feelings for fear of rejection or embarrassment. Because even in love, only those who dare can win. Even if the other person does not feel the same way about you, you do not have to be ashamed of your feelings. On the contrary, if you like someone very much, that's valuable, no matter what the other person feels to you.
