- I doubt it. I don't know how a girl feels, I only know how I feel. But I do know the actions and expression girls and guys do are usually different. So I'd assume the chemical/biological feeling is different too.
- past the infatuation stage, doubtful. But it just depends on the guy and girl. Some girls I've loved gave me butterflies, some never did (and yes, I loved them).
- I guess I'd only wait if I was expecting her to come online? I mean...no, I wouldn't wait for her to come online. To chat? No. ...
- well, it depends on the stage we're at, what time of day, and what I'm texting... If I'm still courting, then yeah I'd be eager to hear back, but I'd understand if she takes a while - it's party of the "game" sometimes. If we're past all that crap, then I probably wouldn't care how long she takes, I know she's probably busy with work or friends or family, as long as she replies before she goes to bed (if I texted during the day).
I generally feel like that, yeah, though I don't wait all day to get a reply. I get bored, and try to find something to do with my time, and if she'll get back to me, she'll get back to me, because if she feels the same way about me, then it shouldn't even be a question.
But yeah love can be a great feeling. It can feel consuming or enveloping. It's a little bit obsessive, but freeing at the same time. I can sometimes feel distracted, thinking about the girl I love. Sometimes I think about how lucky I am to be with her, and my body just sorta shakes like it's holding back a huge "whoohoooo!". In truth I kinda am.
So yeah, I think it feels the same for guys. Though I don't think it's a gender thing. I think it's a personal thing.
It's hard to say that one person's experience of being in love is like another's. I think that they examples you give apply. They have certainly applied to me. There is likely to be a certain universality about it. But how can we really know?
