Most Helpful Girl
I think it totally depends on the person involved.
I fell in love only one time and it happened while we were already in the relationship. I just don't open as easily to people even if it's just a friendship. Dating isn't something that common where I live. You just decide to give it a go or not.
My boyfriend asked me to be his girlfriend, he just said we would see how it goes. We would see each other everyday and after three or four month, I knew I had fell really hard for him.
Though, that's how it worked for me. I totally understand how it can work otherwise for someone else.
