Falling in love is one of the most exciting, rewarding and most fearsome thing you will ever do. While it’s different for everyone, there are some common thoughts and feelings that can help people identify when it’s happening.
Even if you’ve never said the “l-word” to him, even if you’re not together, even if you’ve sworn you would never fall in love with him… There’s a chance you might have gone and fallen in love anyway.
Love is strange. It’s wild, uncontrollable, and can happen totally by accident when you least expect it. If you read anything on this list and think, “Hmm, weird…” We hate to break it to you, but you might be in love.
Here are the 10 crazy, weird signs that mean you’re in love
1. Your appetite shrinks
You know the feeling of getting butterflies in your stomach when you think about a guy? Wait, before you get mad, we’re not saying you get butterflies when you think about him. We’re just asking you if you know the feeling – and most often that kind of feeling makes you lose appetite.
2. You can talk to him about anything
We do mean anything – you’re totally comfortable around him, you can pee with the door open without feeling weird. You tell him about a gross zit you popped the other day, he laughs and pretends to be grossed out.
3. You can’t explain why you’re always happy
All of a sudden you feel giddy and lighthearted for no apparent reason at all. Things that might have annoyed you or brought your mood down before never seem to bother you at all anymore.
4.You can’t concentrate at work and suddenly have ADD disorder
So you’re at work and supposed to be doing some kind of spreadsheet or paperwork – what are you doing instead? You’re daydreaming about him. Or if you’re around your family and friends, your mind is elsewhere. You’re just not present in the moment with them because you’re thinking of him.
5. You re-read his text messages
This is an undeniable one. You keep the entire texting conversation you have with him. When he sends you a text, you often smile and read it a couple of times just for good measure.
6. Two minutes with him is worth more than a whole day without him
Ever get a short text from him that sends a jolt of excitement through you and puts a smile on your face for the rest of the day? Does your heart skip a beat if he calls you just to say hi or to talk about anything for a couple of minutes?
7. He drives you crazy, but you still can’t help but love being around him
Sometimes, he says things that just drive you crazy. Every time he does something dumb, it makes you want to grab his head and shake it until all the dumb falls out. He pushes your buttons in ways that no one else ever could, and it makes you want to scream in frustration.
8. Everything reminds you of him
Whether you’re walking around, see a Starbucks and wish he was there with you…
Or you’re shopping around at Bed, Bath & Beyond and can’t help but wish he was there choosing random pillows…
No matter what, everywhere you go, you think of him. It’s a strange feeling you can’t help. He just pops into your head at the most random times.
9. You always find yourself talking about him
You can’t help it. Someone says or does something that reminds you of him, and before you even realize it, you’re talking about him.
It doesn’t matter who you’re talking to. You could be talking to the lady who does your hair, or your mom, or the cashier at the grocery store, and he’ll still come up in the conversation.
Most importantly, you can’t stop bringing him up around your friends. If they’re tired of hearing about him, that’s a dead giveaway that you’re “guilty” of this sign…
10. You totally stop thinking about your ex
So you might have had an obsession with your ex-boyfriend who broke your heart and cheated on you with his ex-girlfriend (or whatever he did).
You might have missed him or completely hated his guts with a burning passion that could light a thousand suns. You might have gone weeks where every morning you wake up, and your first thought is wondering whether you could fit him inside a blender.
And now? You actually pretty much don’t care anymore. You don’t fixate on your anger at the guy who screwed you over. And so you almost feel a sense of indifference.
So it’s a crazy experience. You never thought you’d see the day where he’s truly gone from your thoughts, but now he is… Because someone else has taken over your thoughts.
