Maybe, but what I wish people would learn is that obsession is not love! There is a difference!

As far as knowing when you are in love I look at it religiously. The bible gives a pretty good description of what love is, and even an Atheist could value the information about love given within it.

However, to look at it secularly I say this:

Love is not when you constantly think about someone! Is he/she with someone of the other sex? Love isn’t when you go into an envious rage when your boy/girlfriend is hanging out with another girl/guy!
It’s not when you stalk them


Love is when you want the very best for someone. When you desire their joy so much that you are willing to sacrifice yourself! Let him/her date somebody else because that somebody else is better for the person you love then you are.

Love does not envy. It is not self centered. The reason people refer to somebody they love as “Their other half” is because they stop thinking about themselves and start thinking about the other person. They’re more concerned about the one they love and her/his desires than their own. Call me cliché, call it naïve, but love is not some stupid form of intense affection!

Love is something that the pleonasm of a thousand poets cannot truthfully explain! We can describe it, but not understand it.


Wow, very insightful. Sounds like something I'd hear in my philosophy class!
You make a pretty good description of Love.

However I still stick to what I said and oh yeah. (Inserts sad music) hahaha!

This is a harder question then you probably realize. Many people can be fooled by infatuation thinking it is love - in a way it is, just not long lasting. Real love is something only YOU can know. If you have ever been infatuated, then fall in love with someone you will see a difference in that feeling.

When you know that you really love someone, you know that you really love someone. If you are doubting the fact that you love someone, you should or not think about it or brake up =] 'cause otherwise you are folling yourself with thinking that you really love him/her and that will make the brake up even harder...

I think loving someone begins with a feeling of affection and then the feeling grows and develops as people grow to learn more about each other or spends some quality time.

i rarely ever fall in love with anyone. up till now, i've only ever truly love one person. i'll probably will still be loving her till the day i die, irregardless of whether i find someone else or not.

i can tell when i am in love with someone when:

(1) i'll always put her well being before my own.

(2) i'll always be thinking of her constantly.

(3) i'll only be able to see her strengths and not her flaws.

(4) no one else in the world is as beautiful as she is.

(5) i'll sacrifice my life for her willingly without any second thoughts.

(6) i'm happy whenever she's happy, i'm sad whenever she's sad.

WHen all the feelings are gone, the the butterflies settle down, life turns into a normal routine and it's not always happy ..and your partner can still look at you despite life and time passing and still hold you like it was your first date.

For me, I would say if you put all their needs ahead of yours, be able to share his joy and sorrows, look at the future an see your him there, and recognize that a relationship requires a lot of effort and is willing to give that effort.

When you don't mind that your significant other doesn't measure up to your expectations and yet, you still love them madly.

You will miiss him/her everytime you have nothing to do~
Happy all the time when he/she beside you~
etc~

I think when you truly love someone, you'll just know without even thinking. I know the heart doesn't actually have any censors to let you know that he/she is the one, but you'll just know because you feel like your heart is telling you that he/she is the right person for you.

You can't seem to stay mad at that special someone, and you really could care less how he looks, so long as he/she makes you happy.
