Love is an addiction.
And its potency can be compared with any addictive substance in the world.
And just as when we begin to fall prey to any addiction, it’s often hard to recognize the signs.
You may never really realize when you start to like a person, when you start to fall for them, and when you actually fall in love with them.
Signs of falling in love
Whether we like it or not, our mind is programmed to fall in love.
We can’t help ourselves or predict the circumstances that lead us to fall in love with someone.
We just do!
And if you’ve just started to like someone, how can you tell you’re falling for them?
Where do you draw the line between a little crush and deeply imprinted love?
Love arm-twists us into risking everything.
When you fall in love with someone, the part of your brain that makes judgments for you shuts off each time you see them or think of them.
At the same time, the part that controls fear too shuts off, which makes you reckless and idiotic each time your new love comes within sight or enters your thoughts.
Experiencing the feeling of love
Science can explain why something happens in love. But it still can’t predict it beyond assumptions. You can think of love as faith. You can’t see it or touch it, but you can still feel it even if no one around you believes in it.
And at times, the feeling is so intense that it overwhelms you and makes you want to burst!
Love is a beautiful feeling, and falling in love with someone is an experience we usually don’t ever forget whether the relationship worked or failed. But can we tell if we’re falling in love? Of course, we can. And it’s all in the signs…
