14 Unmistakable Symptoms Of Falling In Love You Never Stopped To Think About

Love – what a cute little word with just four letters, but a meaning so deep that most young hearts lose themselves finding it. Some say it is the best feeling of their lives, and for others, it is life itself! It is the most cherished motivation that has inspired countless people to change the world and it the simplest yet the most special sensation that changes the world for you.

Love is a mystery, yet it is the one truth that everything starts with and ends for. Love is the thread that brings different hearts and souls together, and it is the same force that sets you apart.

Like all the poets and thinkers there have already done, we can also keep on expressing what love is and what love could be, and there’ll certainly be no end to the words that pour out of our (incurably love-struck) hearts, but there is also a guarantee that the question – what is love? –wouldn’t be answered satisfactorily. And how do you know you’ve fallen in love? This question will still stand tall, intriguing and irresistible! So, what do we do? How do we know the answers to these questions our agonized souls are searching for? Here’s the answer – well, ask your pink blinded heart to take five and relax for a while, and analyze what’s going on with the organ that love loves the least – your brain!

With all said and done, love is beautiful and you’re in love (keep saying you’re not, but you so totally are and you know it!). So, what we need to do here is help your brain into realizing and confessing that you’ve fallen prey to the Cupid’s sweetest arrow (like so many of us). The only little thing to keep in mind is that with the changing times, our love has also changed with it, and I know that no timeless Romeo-Juliet talks will cure the ‘modern you’ of your love disease. So, with these practical signs of falling in love, we’re going to decode the love trouble for you.

Here is a list of the most obvious symptoms (yet somehow so mysterious that you won’t just admit it even to yourself) that will help you diagnose that you’re helplessly bitten by the love bug (with only one possible cure there is, ha!).

(A little heads up – after reading the list below, you’ll officially have been fallen deep in love!)

1. Positivity energizes your personality

You are the same person who used to remain in bed until noon, but not anymore! Now there’s a ball of positivity that makes you bounce with it. You follow their trail on jogs, their cart in marts, their falling notes in the libraries, and even their sweet fragrance to the gym! Love is indeed magical!

2. You become more conscious and concerned


Married to the sweatshirts and superman boxers, you now ditch these for the best clothes in your closet, at all times! How you look, how you walk, and even how you smell, are the questions on your mind, and you become a better person as you enjoy the various symptoms of falling in love.

3. You feel beautiful

Though this could be a little self-destructive if you let it boost your ego, it’s the most beautiful thing love does to you. They look at you – you blush. They pass you in the hallways smiling, and you smile for the rest of the day.

4. You see the good in them (ONLY the good)

#TheCriticDiesInColdBlood #KillerLove

And this is how ‘love’ got the ‘blind’ attached to it. There’s some magic in love that brings a lovely unconditionality to your relationship. You’ll love them no matter what. The reason you’re able to do this is because love makes the good in them dominate what you see and fall for. You are swooning so much over their wonderful qualities, you don’t care to bother with the slight ‘not so good’ ones there as well (and isn’t this convenient?).

5. Everything seems possible


Oh, now I’m not talking about bringing the moon as the wedding gift, but the otherwise unimaginable errands that you make possible in love. Waiting hours for their one glance from the window, staying on the app all night long to see them come online (see your message and…. Ha!), getting the haircut they like, taking the entire group to a luxury dine out just to get the chance to sit by them in a romantic ambiance – we all find ourselves doing these types of things once we’ve fallen for someone.

6. You become obsessive and possessive

They’re the first thought you wake up to and the last fantasy you fall asleep to. From their middle name to the brand of toothpaste they use, every single thing reminds you of them. Even when you’re drowned in a never-ending load of work, whether they’ve taken their dog for a walk or if they are watching Dancing With the Stars right now, seem like more important brainteasers!

7. Your lover is what matters the most


There’s simply nothing that can top your lover when it comes to your list of priorities (not even yourself!). Be it the question of replying to their chats, picking up calls, buying a hard drive for them even when you need one as well, or anything at all – they are your priority and they always will be. Always on your mind and always the ones you choose over almost anything and anyone else.

8. Your relationship goes a step closer to pious

There’s no better thing that solidifies that it’s love and not just another crush – ‘making love’ isn’t the only thing on your ‘want-to-do’ list. Cooking up wishes like wanting to hold their hand while you listen to your favorite music, watching them play with the waves, taking a dancing class with them, enjoying them draw circles on your palm, and other small gestures like these are just some of the symptoms of falling in love.

9. The definition of what makes you happy changes


Earlier, the happiness you got from scoring well on your exams, finding a perfect fit of shoes, enjoying a classic rom-com with an ice cream bucket of your favorite flavor and lots more seem to be nothing when compared to the ecstasy you feel when they call you with your first name, touch your finger by accident, or just smile at your joke! You feel like you’re one step closer to attaining Nirvana! 😛

10. You do anything to make them like you

Be it looking your fabulous best or turning to the nerdy style, there’s just nothing you won’t do to make them like (LOVE) you and feel special. You will listen to the music they appreciate, the sci-fi flicks they worship, join the circle they follow and absolutely everything else they’re involved with!

11. You lose control of your body and senses


One glance at them makes your heart beat out a rhythm unknown to you, one touch can cause your breathing to accelerate like you’re running a marathon, a smile makes you sweat like a pig, and a compliment makes you blush from the roots of your hair! You can’t help but feel like they are near somewhere, the pointless head turns happen, and you skip a beat and more without any remedy.

12. You become creative


Nobody can make better scenarios of getting the two of you together than your love-struck heart. Conned by love, you become the master of scheming and creatively planning many accidents and happy coincidences to fuel your ‘not-a-love-story’.

13. You dream about your future together

Now this dreaming in colors and high definition that I’m talking about – beating the Brad and Angelina relationship, the two of you against the world, and ‘what baby names shall we choose’ type of imagination. You dream in rainbow colors with thoughts like cotton candy.

14. You’re not yourself


One thing that’s clear from all the thirteen points above is that you’re definitely different – the love version 2.0. You think differently, wish differently, look different, and the entire world seems changed with you. The magic of love brings about these changes and there’s nothing you love more than the new you that you find after losing yourself in love.

With these symptoms of falling in love making the pink fever crystal clear, why not declare yourself love struck and enjoy love for the sweet and sour (yet the most beautiful) ride that it is?

14 Sure Symptoms Of Falling In Love
If you've ever stopped to wonder about what happens when you fall in love, here's the answer - all the symptoms of falling in love ;)

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
