If you have ever been in love, how did you know that you loved the person? I just knew. The second I saw him before we even met I turned to my friend and said I am going to date that guy. We were friends for awhile because when we met he had a girlfriend. They broke up, we got together. I felt like I was in love with him before we even started dating.
How long were you together? We have been together for 9 years now and counting Happily.
Was it an ah-ha, epiphany moment where everything suddenly seemed clear, or a gradual realization? an Ah-Ha moment, definetly.
Do you think that there is a difference between loving someone and being in love? Of course. I love my friends and family, I am in love with my boyfriend. I think when you are in love you don't even have to think about it or question it.
And, finally, what is love? Love is unconditional genuine friendship. Someone who you trust completely with everything. They know all your deepest secrets, you never doubt them, you can talk about anything with them even embarrassing stuff. In certain situations you put them and their needs before your own without even realizing it. You would do anything for this person. (with in reason). You constantly want to do new and exciting things with this person, travel, go on adventures. Love is not happy and bubbly all the time don't get me wrong, people in love still fight once in awhile but the difference is when you are in love you never ever consider giving up on that person. You get through the hard times together and leaving doesn't even feel like an option. I don't really know how to explain love it is hard to put into words. I did my best.
