How do you know you are in love?

Can you love somebody without actually going out with them? i dont know if i am in love there is so much talk about being in "love" and stuff and i know that some times people just throw around the word, an other times it takes ages for people to say it. How do you KNOW? like, i dont think i could possibly like the guy anymore than i already do. but then, ive never had a hard out relationship before so maybe im just inexperinced.

    I think you're on the right track. Love is a loose word with some people.

    I'd like to think that love is knowing the "negative" side to someone and still knowing you want to be with them and there for them. But I've grown to realize its more involved with that and would take a long time to write out here.

    It never hurts however, to love someone enough to stay friends a long time until you know what it is for sure. If you're friends with the one you love, then you're more likely to always be friends. If you love first and break up, its possible you wont be friends after.

    Let your actions speak and see if his do too without using a "basic" relationship to find it.

    True love is a DECISION. Feelings come and go, but real love stays in both good and bad times.

    "in love" is usually infatuation. That butterfly feeling fades; it's replaced by something more satisfying, but less adrenalin-causing.

    When you see him from across the way and can't help but smile. Also, if he said he would call you on a certain day, and you can't wait so you sit around waiting. Wait, that last one might be a little obsessive, but definetely the first one.

    Are you willing to die for the person you think you are in love with?

    If you can answer yes honestly and without second thought, then you are in love..

    Love is when you care more about someone elses happyness & well being than your own... That's why it is so rare.
