Question by cablecar: What is the difference between being in love and wanting to be in love?
I think I am in love with this guy after only dating for a few weeks. We have so much in common. My family loves him. We have the same morals and beliefs. We are from the same area. However, I very much WANT to be in love also. How do I differentiate? Does wanting to be in love make you fall sooner?

I would imagine that it does make it easier. Most people don’t fall into love in just a few weeks though. That is infatuation. However, a good solid base, like you mention, can be the start of real love.

for me.. i think being inlove is the emotion we feel now to a certain person.. but wanting to be in love is the emotion we want to feel.. its like forcing our self to be in love..because i think being in love to a person will just come.. unplanned.. etc

i was like you when i started dating my boyfriend.
i wasnt in love with him in the beginning, but after 2 years i know im in love now.

sometimes it takes time before you can realize that you are truly in love.
it sounds like you have a great relationship.

I agree that wanting love makes it easier, but it also makes it easier to get hurt. Love is when you want thei happiness over yours, their smile makes you smile, and reality is better than your dreams. You’d know all his faults but still like him for who he is. That is love.

Inflatuation is liking just the positive.

Being in love is when life without that person seems impossible, being away form them hurts. Wanting to be in love is when you feel like they are perfect and you always want to be around them, without the negative effects of the pain from distance or the world being impossible without them. hope i helped! :)

It sounds like you are in love. Savor every moment. You sound like you have a good grip on the important points of what makes a relationship strong. Maybe wanting to be in love only meant you were ready to fall in love. Regardless, enjoy it. Best wishes.
