You may be walking along one day, just living your life, when it hits you that you're falling in love with someone. Everything is suddenly changed, especially how you see yourself and the world. How is it even the same world? The day before you were in no way in love and now, with your realization of love, you're a totally new person.
There are times when you instantly know you love someone and everything just seems to fall into place, and then there are the other times when the realization that you're falling for someone hits you like a ton of bricks. You question yourself: Why didn't you see the signs before? Were your eyes closed shut?
You start to go over everything in your mind of what led to suddenly feeling some very intense emotions for your newly beloved. Did you love them at first sight but didn't allow yourself to acknowledge it? Perhaps it was after the second or third date?
Now that you can recognize that weird feeling as love, what do you do? Can they somehow sense their importance to your life and your heart?
We all have different reactions to the awareness that our feelings have gone from friendly to falling in love. For some, it's extreme panic; for others, it's a comfortable transition.
There's no way to predict the person you're going to fall for, and sometimes that person is the most inappropriate person in the world for you, but the feelings have already been established and you have to deal with them.
When you start to grasp the fact that your feelings can change everything, you can go into panic mode. And how we respond to the knowledge that we're falling for someone is different for everyone. Find out what each zodiac sign says when they are falling for someone.
"No problem, I'm going to seduce them and make them mine before the month is out!"
"I feel strange. Is it indigestion or maybe I'm getting the flu?"
"Oh cool, I'm falling in love." (60 seconds later) "Oh no, I'm falling in love!" (5 minutes later) "Wait a minute, I can totally do this. It's all good."
"I can't go through another heartbreak again. I haven't fully gotten over my ex."
"I can't think of anything better than being loved by me."
"It's not a good time right now for me to be falling in love. I have much more important things to do."
"F*ck. I can't handle this right now."
"OK, I need to make a plan of seduction. I don't want to scare them away with my intensity."
"Hmm, love is good. I like love, but I'm feeling a little boxed in right now. I better book a trip somewhere so I can get thing sorted out in my head."
"I'm a hard worker. I'll just put all my energy into making them love me back."
"Yeah, I must be confusing love with admiring someone for their commitment to social justice. I couldn't possibly be falling for someone."
"Oh, I've composed 10 songs, written love letters, and created some fine art all inspired by them. I guess I'm falling in love."
