    I think it depends what kind of love you're talking about. … is-it-real

    An answer from a simple, non-expert without any credentials in this area; however, Amor Vincit Omnia!

    Love simply conquers all. To be physically in love would simply mean that (this love-feeling) will overcome all other feelings you have. There will be no doubt; all doubt will be removed. There will be no ambiguity all ambiguity will be dissolved. There will be no question-you will simply know and it will become obsessive compulsive in nature...

    Being in love is the most wonderful feeling in the world. It is being totally consumed with someone and appreciating all their qualities, good and bad. Feeling lucky that this person is in your life and feeling excited about seeing them. Worrying about them when their not with you and being beside yourself with happiness when they are. Love can be both the best and the worst feeling in the world but either way you can't deny it is an amazing feeling!

    love's not a physical emotion...

    1.  You could have a crappy day, but the mere sight of this person makes it all better

    2.  You find yourself fighting to improve every part of you just for them.

    3.  You quit jobs you like to get better paying ones, just to make the future that much brighter.

    4.  You see yourself outside in rocking chairs, still holding hands and cuddling when you're 80+

    5.  You'd lay your own life down to help them continue on.

    6.  Wanting a family and raising children and praying they look like the one you love.

    Well, first of all.. giddy. Life seems to take a more up beat rythem to it. With that comes the physical pain from laughing or trying to keep the 'giddiness' in ;p.
    Weak in the knees. It can be overwhelming.
    You quit feeling tired. Staying up all hours of the night to be on the phone or staying over doesn't slow you down.
    Some can get 'tickle-ish' all of a sudden.
    Of course the age old butterflies! You almost get a nervous feeling in your tummy area.
    Just some brief cute ones I could think of! ;p

    I think everyone feels it difrently but i think it feels like ...idk everytime you are around them you are happy because you just like being in there presants... but the real love is when you can apreshiate everything they have to offer... if you can learn an love to injoy the good an bad things about them as long as there there then you know you have something.

    "Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.

    You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you.

    They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts.

    Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love." ~ Neil Gaiman

    Love is so many things, but in the physical sense it is really hard to explain. I'll try my best to describe the way I feel.

    My boyfriend and I have this line we always say now. He asked me for a kiss and just out of curiosity I asked why. He says, "my body is telling me I want one". There's no other way to explain it.

    When you're truly in love, you feel this physical connection that you can't see, it just lingers between the two of you. Your body feels like it's in a high when you're around them and with them. Sure there are the typical butterflies and the feeling of your stomach flipping, also. Touching the person you're in love with sends tingles through yours and their body.. it should feel amazing.

    Making love is a totally different feeling. There is no other way to describe it other than feeling like your souls are entwined; like you are one entity. I've had sex in my past, but I now know what making love feels like; it's completely different.

    It feels like the two of you are connected, like you have to be with him 24/7 and you cant stop imagining what it would be like with the two of you together. You also get butterflies in your stomach every time you see him, and every time you guys kiss, it feels like the whole world stopped, and its just the two of you.

    Its a good feeling.  I felt 'daydreaming' state in my mind, of how it would be to be with that certain person that was making me feel in a particular way, that I hadn't felt before meeting and getting to know that knew person that just came into my life.   Even if later, it was a mistake in ourrelationship.  That first physical, attraction, can be a very nice feeling in a never forgetting experience.

    For me I felt whole. I felt like I could do anything. I felt like I had finally found my place in this world. I was that happiest I had ever been in my entire life. It feels like the best dream you've ever had but awake that pray never ends.

    I was so in love with him. Still am.

    Love cannot be physical only. Love is a combination of physical and emotional attachment. love and emotions combined with honesty and trust builds a great relationship and gives awesome physical pleasure too

    There are some reasons why we fall inlove. It can be the physical apperance. The attitude etc.

    And when we are inlove, there will come some changes in us. We will be concious in everything we do. We will start to care for the person that we love. We will learn how to trust our partner.Extend our patience. And so on.

    The feeling of being with your partner cannot be explained by a single word itself. It is just a feeling that requires to be shown not to describe, because love is about being physically and emotionally inlove.
