Temporary Insanity Day: 10 Reasons Why Falling In Love Is The Best Form Of Insanity Ever

When someone says that they are madly in love with you, do not ignore the ‘madly’! People do insane things after falling in love and yet I call it the best form of insanity ever! I want you to ignore the girl who broke your heart or the man who took you out on a picture-perfect date to never return your calls again! Forget about these nincompoops and also about the stress, worry, and frustration that you normally feel about dating. I want you to focus on only one simple thing and that is, how wonderful it feels to fall in love and do silly things that don’t hurt anyone but gives ‘the doer’ immense pleasure!

Only one moment you will be sitting in the library keeping to yourself and your book, when suddenly someone will jive into your life and turn it upside down, in the most beautiful way!

Apart from how special and divine love as an emotion is, it is also very funny, which makes it further extraordinary! Just think about all the weird things you have done after falling in love with someone. Once hit by Mr. Cupid’s arrow, you are in for some serious quirks! Here are some! :)

1. The cat has got your tongue!

Falling in love totally renders you speechless! No matter who you are, a lawyer, a comedian, a sports commentator or even a politician, you are gonna lose all control on your vocal chords once your other chords beg to get ‘attached’! Whenever the man or the lady of your dreams appears in front of you, you will crumble! If you discover that you are abruptly struck dumb, face illogical mind blanks or make small talk complimenting your crush’s shoes, the love bug has bit you, hard! Insane, right?!

So, basically, love helps you shut the f*ck up and I PRAY to God that Donald Trump falls in love soon(est)!

2. The food-hog in you calms down*

*Only when your special someone is around!

You could be famished and ready to gobble down an entire horse without even a burp, but when you step into that classy restaurant at the corner of the street with your S.O. you will dreadfully ‘examine’ the menu for the littlest dish possible! You don’t want to come across as someone who can’t have enough to eat at any time of the day, right?!

You will never choose the things that you love hogging otherwise; certainly not, Spaghetti Bolognese! You think that if you spill it down your dress or worse smear it across your lips, your love life will be scarred forever!

So, again, falling in love helps you shut that trap for a different reason and this magically helps you lose that extra 20 pounds you have been hoping to burn since high school!

3. You check your mobile every 4 seconds, expecting an SMS, WhatsApp, Viber, FB text from them.

Yes, falling in love makes you do insane stuff. I mean you have ‘Profile settings’ on your cell. You have options like ‘Sound,’ ‘Vibrate,’ and ‘Vibrate & Sound’ (If you are a parent or deaf AF!). You can just select one of these and then throw the thing aside but no! You have to cling on to it the way a kangaroo clings on to her joey! You become as obsessed as that passenger who moves towards the front seat of the bus to reach faster than the rest in the bus! You fear that the other person will call it quits if you fail your daily average of 12-second gap per reply!

But at least this craziness of yours makes you ‘keep an eye’ (quite literally!) on your own business and not meddle with other people’s affairs! Only if Indian Auntyjis infatuated once in a while, the world would have been a much better place to live in!

4. You order memory cards every week to fit in all the pictures you downloaded from their FB wall!

And also every message that your crush ever accidentally dropped in your inbox goes directly into ‘saved documents’! Falling in love also makes you apply locks to your Gallery and Inbox that’s filled with 1000 texts from him like, “Hey!”, “Ya”, “U say!”, “TTYL”, “Busy”, “Do I know you?”, “Who the f*ck are you?” et. al! You have kept all these messages safe and away from the world’s eyes because the S.O.s have stopped texting you and re-reading these is the only thing that helps you achieve climax while pleasuring yourself!

So to conclude, you are learning how to love yourself and that’s a good thing, ask the Kardashians about it!

5. You begin binge-watching rom-coms

And imagine yourself and your crush in the leading roles! And when you watch a wet Mr. Darcy go, “I love you. Most ardently!” you do get it! You also realize that you would find most of the scenes in these rom-coms zany and gross if it were anyone else, but when it’s the two of you, even Princess Diaries makes sense!

You don’t roll your eyes when the hero violates all airport rules, reaches the last security gate, tells the personnel about his love story (however shitty!), and gets to stop an aircraft from flying!

*Suck it up hijackers and terrorists*

If that doesn’t make you feel cooler, nothing ever will!

6. Mamma Mia! Your life has become a musical!

You now mark the timings for the late night shows where they play retro love songs and shamelessly sing with them though you don’t know a damn thing about melody! You just go ‘hmm’ throughout the track if the lyrics are gibberish to you, but you just can’t shut up! The occasional “Ahhh!” in between when you actually understand what the singer was blaring about for the past 2 minutes, is the cherry on the cake! When the S.O. also falls in love with you, the two of you pick a special song that you dub as ‘your song,’ audaciously disregarding the copyright!

Everything musical is good, except may be death metal?!

7. You repetitively zone out and daydream

You are in Switzerland with the woman you have fallen in love with, surrounded by the Alps. You are singing songs, holding hands, dancing with matchy steps. She whispers the sweetest things in your ears. Your heart starts beating faster as you lean in to smooch her… just then, the office alarm goes off and you are advised to evacuate the building!

Arguing with people? Fighting? No time for that! We are to visit Italy today!

8. The gym becomes your new home!

This comes as a shocker to the parents and then friends and then finally you, when you actually pound on the treadmill! Falling in love is the best form of insanity ever because it makes you want to be a better person. And it is insane because that’s never going to happen! You have no fricking clue about why you are running around directionless in your park with the other street dogs instead of throwing yourself on the couch, pouring yourself a glass of champagne, and celebrating with Sex and the City! P.S.: Eye of the Tiger is suddenly on loop in your iPod!

You have no idea how many dollars the American government would save on their budget if every obese fella in the country fell in love, which is like the Obamas minus the entire population!

9. You post Dr. Seuss love quotes on Facebook

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep, because finally reality is better than your dreams.” (And what about the daydreams? Blimey!)

All these crappy sappy quotes will suddenly make sense to you after falling in love! And why should you keep such a beautiful nirvana to yourself, huh? So you copy-paste an assortment of these, save it in your documents, and post one a day on your wall, tagging a hundred people and yourself in the status!

At least now you stalk just one person and have stopped sending your naked pics to the rest of the people on your list!

10. You genuinely feel good

No, it’s nothing philosophical. It is just your hormones being goofy! Your hand feels sweaty and your heart beats like a drum! Your adrenaline release has gone berserk, of course! Serotonin levels drop because of which you just can’t stop thinking about him! Your cortisol, on the other hand, is up and you are now stressed AF! And when you finally smacker, so much Dopamine!

So basically I just brushed up your biology lessons which need to be delved into ‘deeper’ as the love grows! 😉

Despite all this insanity, let me tell you that falling in love is the most beautiful thing that can ever happen to you! Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results! Sorry Albert, despite the heartbreaks and Tinder blocks, I can’t help falling in love! 😉

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
