When you realized you were in love, true love, how did it come about or how did you know for sure?


Was it love at first sight? Was it slowly realized over time through a friendship that developed into love? Was it an overwhelming feeling in your heart that you just could not explain that you have never felt with anyone else? Did your heart beat faster when you were around the one? Were you just goo-goo eyed over the person ...? In other words, how did you know it was true love and not just a crush? What were your physical symptoms, if any? Did you ever believe you were in love, true love, until one day you met someone else and then felt something you never felt before? Thanks!

    Hi MizB, Ouch ... bless your heart. Yes, if there is a breakup and it is no big deal, then not true love. So, must have been the real deal for you. That is a hard reality to endure there. Thank you for sharing.

    Tee hee, Manatita, Yes, I am in the Valentine's Day mode or Love mode and so I thought I would pose this question now. We can have loyalty and respect, but if you are not together then it was not true love and meant to be. Yes, Love is Divine!!!

    Hello Tamirogers, Yes, you are lucky indeed! Two true loves in a lifetime is amazing. I am sorry about your first love's death, and I am glad you still remember the feeling. Nothing better than for someone to "get you".So true, about the sexy one!

    Hi peachpurple, Yes, it seems when we go through life's trials and tribulations together and made it through, then the bond is even stronger and you grow that much closer to one another. So glad a workplace romance worked out! Blessings

    Hello Jared, thank you so much for sharing. Yes, one cannot truly know another without spending time with him or her. That is a good way to tell about love for sure, when no one else makes you feel the way that persons does!
