It may sound like a dumb question but how do you know? And I mean true love if that even exists. Is there a difference with the feeling you get if you love someone truly and if you have a crush on someone (cause sometimes crushes don't last so did you really love them) How do you act when you're in love? Is it really love (romantically) that you're feeling? Do you need to have known them for a certain amount of time/getting to know them before you actually fall in love? What does falling in love mean to you?

Love is something that can be pretty overpowering I think. In my experience it's ruled a lot of decisions I've made in the past, and sometimes kept me in relationships I didn't want to be in. For example I was in love with a woman who betrayed me many times over, and no matter how toxic the relationship was I didn't leave... Took me ages to finally break it off with her. Another case I was in love with somebody very truly and deeply. I tried telling myself that I didn't love her. Fact is I was afraid to love somebody again. But despite my efforts to not feel a certain way I couldn't shake how I felt. Dan Vebber wrote a line, in an episode of my favorite T.V. series, that puts it quite eloquently...
- "Love isn't brains, children, it's blood... blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." -
Funny thing about it is... It's true. Love makes you feel a certain way, and really it has a power over you like nothing else. Really, it can be beautiful, it can be painful, and it can be everything in between, It can also be inspiration, motivation, but it can also be paralyzing and you'll know it when you feel it. Maybe not always at first, but you always feel it at some point or another.7
