Expect the unexpected. Love has the power to actually drive people crazy. Not just in a figurative sense of the word. But literally. Love literally has the power to drive people mad. That just speaks volumes of the potential effect that love can have on people. A lot of people these days are really cynical about falling love. The young ones of this generation are too focused on the self to actually make time for being in and maintaining a proper adult relationship with another person. They know the risks involved with falling in love with another person and they would rather they invest their energy into other things. But love can come for us whether we like it or not; and a lot of times, love comes unexpectedly. We have no means of preparing for it. We only make the best out of what we’re given and we hope for the better. Sometimes, a person walks into our lives and completely changes everything. We lose control of our own feelings and we just go along for the ride. So if you happen to be the kind of person who really wasn’t expecting love to walk into your life, then that’s okay. You’re not alone. It may take some extra time for you to figure things out. It might be a while before you get used to these new feelings that you’re going to have. That’s understandable. True love always waits. But just in case you want to be prepared for that event, then you should really read on until the end of this article. Love has the power to change people, as has already been established. But it always helps with the adjustments if you can somewhat anticipate these changes. Here are few unexpected things that happen to you when you fall in love.
1. You get this weird feeling of simultaneous exhilaration and calmness.
Love is definitely a weird thing; not only for those who are new to the game, but for everyone in general. It can leave people feeling very confused the state of their emotions. It’s a rush of blood to the head and then some. One thing that you have to expect when you really fall in love with someone is that you’re going to feel both excited and relaxed at the same time. You are going to be thrilled at the fact that you are now getting to experience what love really feels like; but you are also going to be relaxed and content with the idea that you know this is where you are definitely meant to be in your life.
2. You discover what it really means to be obsessed with another person.
You used to think you were obsessed and passionate about other things in life. But you then realize that you were so wrong. Now that you fall in love, you really understand what real, hot, heavy, and tangible obsession feels like. You will want to be with your loved one for all the days of your life.
3. You will really understand the power of the physical touch.
In the past, you might have been a person who liked to keep to yourself. You might have valued your concepts of personal space, freedom, and individuality. You may even used to have been that person who hated unnecessary physical contact with other people. But with the person you love, all of that is different. Somehow, with the person that you’re in love with, the physical touch is something that you actually crave for like a drug. You just want to be able to express your affection and intimacy in a physical manner at all times of the day and you don’t know what’s coming over you.
4. You act uncharacteristically nervous for no apparent reason around the one you love.
No matter how charismatic, confident, eloquent, and intelligent you are, love has the power to leave you bumbling like a bona fide idiot. But don’t worry, no one is going to judge you for it. When you’re around the person that you love, your heart is going to start racing. You might have the tendency to jumble up your words and you will have trouble stringing a coherent thought together. It’s all part of the experience. It’s just your body’s way of trying to process all of your emotions.
5. You won’t stop smiling whenever you’re together.
That’s always the end-game isn’t it? Happiness. We all yearn for it. We work hard our entire lives in our pursuit of it. Everything that we do in this life is all for the purpose of fulfilling our own happiness. And that’s one thing that love can do for you, it can bring you one step closer to untainted eternal bliss. The experience of being with someone you’re truly in love with is going to be enough to have you grinning from ear to ear. So make sure your pearly whites are ready for a show because you’re going to be smiling a lot when you’re in love.
