Some of you are obvious; others, nots so much.

How do you act when you’re falling in love? We all act differently when we suddenly find ourselves completely head-over-heels in love. The funny thing is that we may act one way with one person and another way with someone else.

When we fall in love, there are chemical, emotional, and psychological reactions that happen and it can be overwhelming.

Everything around you seems changed when you fall in love and you feel as if you’re looking at the world in a whole new way. For some people, love makes them act foolish and giddy, while others feel unsure if the relationship will even last or if the other person feels exactly the same way as they do.

You lose control when you fall in love, especially of your emotions. You don’t know if you can trust yourself or the other person, or if it’s better to relinquish all control and just let things play out as they will.

Now that you’ve found a potential "The One," you want to find out everything you can about them. There’s no detail, no matter how small or insignificant, that isn’t fascinating to you.

The beginning stages of falling in love can be magical and it’s easy to feel as if you’re in a movie or a book. Think of how falling in love has inspired so many great (and no-so-great) pieces of art.

Love is universal and extremely specific at the same time. And it’s completely fine to enjoy the process of love even when it’s not you that has fallen in love.

Much of the way we act is centered around love, so it’s not surprising that astrology has many insights on every aspect of love. We may not know how we act when we’re madly in love, but your zodiac sign may be able to tell.

You're extreme when in love because, with you, you either love someone or you don't. You usually don't go through a lengthy process trying to figure out if it's love that you're feeling. You know and you become extremely determined to capture their heart as they've captured yours. You may want to slow down a bit; you don't want to freak them out with your intensity.

When you're falling in love, you're super-sensitive (more than you usually are) and everything inspires you. If you're not an artist, you'll feel inspired to make a change in your appearance or redecorate; if you are an artist, you'll be inspired to paint, write, photograph or do anything that expresses your feelings. Love is both glorious and horrible for you because you feel it so deeply.
