What Being In Love Feels Like

November 6, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was thinking about how it feels to be in love. Being in love is one of the most incredible feelings in the entire world. When I was trying to explain to myself what it feels like, I felt as if I could literally write a novel. I was curious… how do other people explain the feeling? So, I asked twitter:

“Random but I’m super curious, how would you personally explain what being in love feels like? I want to hear everyone’s point of view!”

Wow, the responses were just incredible. So many people weighed in and put into their own words what it feels like. I absolutely loved everyone point of view, and not one person was wrong. I wanted to share some of the responses I got because it is truly beautiful to hear everyones perspective.

  • “like a sigh of relief.seeing/touching/hearing them could never be enough. like you’ve known them for years and years longer than your life. but you still crave more of them in every way.”
  • “It’s like they bring out the very best version of yourself. Like the person you’ve always tried to be, comes out every time you’re with them”
  • “Being in love feels like everything finally makes sense, it’s when you never want to spend one minute without them, you find yourself thinking about them 24/7, it’s when you miss them as soon as they walk out of the room. Being in love is the greatest feeling in the world.”
  • “I’m more myself when we’re together. Nothing about me is hidden or diminished, and likewise for him. We are both better together than apart.”
  • “I wanted my person to not disrupt my day, routines, and love I have for myself. Being in love only enhances those things. Its easy.”
  • “Like you physically cannot be away without feeling like part of you is missing. Like you could never possibly have enough of them. And being near them truly makes everything else seem so small. The deepest level of comfort id never felt before.”
  • “As if your whole being has become one with someone else. When you’re apart it feels like a piece of you is missing & being one is euphoria”
  • “Like it can fix everything, no matter what, for both of you. It is home, it is safe, and it is all consuming and all encompassing”
  • “Being in love isn’t a definition, but rather a person. When I think of the saying “in love”, a person pops in my head, rather than words.”
  • “Being in love feels like a breathe of fresh air and the heaviest weight being lifted off of your shoulders”
  • “Wen u breathe them in&u actually feel like u can’t move simply bc the security of tht moment&wat u feel tgthr is so concrete its like a drug”
  • “Willing to do anything and everything for that person. Just because you want to see them smile and make their day.”
  • “Love is like he’s home. hard to explain… But EVERYTHING is better by their side love is when it’s no longer “I” but instead “WE”
  • “To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides”
  • “Explaining this feeling is like trying to describe the taste of water.”
  • “It’s feeling like another person is a part of you and that they belong in your life, and you belong in theirs. It’s like your energy & their energy are the same. It’s feeling warm and comfortable. It’s a softness. It’s not knowing how to describe your feelings to them, but wanting to tell them over & over as best you can. Hearing them laugh is the most beautiful sound in the world. It’s just knowing it’s right.”
  • “It feels like a sudden calm during a storm as soon as you’re in their presence. Everything feels so much better w/ them and you feel safe”
  • “When you get a feeling of being “home sick” when they are away. When you feel like you can’t wait to see them again, touch or hug them.”
  • “Like a calm fierceness if that’s possible. That person grounds you but also can evoke the deepest of emotions from you.”
  • “it feels like the safest place, like there’s nowhere else you’d rather be. it’s that feeling of completeness that you never thought existed.”
  • “You’ve found a person who can annoy you daily but you don’t care as they also hold the other half of your soul. Plus the sex is AMAZING!”
  • “When you feel wanted in a way that even with all of your failures and inadequacies, they see the perfection in your imperfections”
  • “Knowing the forever will never be enough time spent with him.”
  • “You were like coming up for fresh air. It’s like I was drowning and you saved me”- Derek Shepherd
  • “Like you cant remember how life was before them. Every second youre apart you ache but when youre reunited its like a puzzle coming together”
  • “Being in love is realizing your life was never the most important one. It’s theirs instead.”
  • “That amazing feeling you get when you stretch REAL good after a nap, but all the time, in Ur heart”
  • “You never get tired of waking up next to them. You start every morning happy.”
  • “knowing that you’re not alone even if he/she is in another continent..it’s also a joy and a fear 24/7 as your soul depends on THAT person”
  • “a true feeling of peace yet at the same time your heart feels like it’s going to explode because you’re so happy”
  • “When their presence was equal to or greater than the peace and joy I have of being alone with myself.”
  • “And you feel like you’ve known them FOREVER. And you just can’t keep yourself from smiling like a cheeseball in their presence. It’s unreal. Like you keep thinking this isn’t real. There’s no way I’m spending my life with this person and you’re gonna wake up any sec”
  • “When you notice yourself planning for the big things in your life and they’re always part of those plans, even when they’re 40 years away”
  • “It’s overwhelming to even describe. It’s so beautiful and powerful to know someone more than you know yourself.”
  • “Knowing someone for a short amount of time but you feel like you’ve known them forever and you can’t never get tired of them”
  • “When all doubt erases from your mind and you feel a sense of home and comfort. Something that you just can’t get enough of”
  • “To borrow a quote..”when you can’t fall asleep because the reality is finally better than the dreams””
  • “Love is overwhelming and wonderful. It’s being amazed that you could ever feel so much for one human being. It’s finding home in another person and knowing that they are your safe space and that you will do everything to be their safe place. It’s happiness and warmth and slow smiles and holding hands and teasing and laughing and just being together no matter the circumstances. It’s knowing that you will never have enough time together. It’s a feeling that you could never fully describe.”

I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING.
