Love-how long does it take to fall in love?
This "issue" has been brought up a few times among my friends, family and even on the healthboards. How long does it "generally" take to fall in love? I know most people will say that it truly depends on the couple and of course, the individual, but...more and more people are commenting on my "loveless" 3 month old relationship. We are just not there yet. Yes, he is not perfect, I don't want comments on that...I want comments on your opinion on how long it usually takes to feel love.
I am also curious, because with my ex, I was head over heels in love after a little over a month, maybe closer to two months. All I could see was him and the feeling he gave me was indescribable. I am not feeling that with my current boyfriend. I wonder if that euphoric "love" is really just lust. If this is the case, it would make sense my ex and I ended up the way we did. Maybe I was crazy about my ex because I was 21, young and idealistic and I failed to see any bad in him and just went crazy for him. I am older now and the guy I am with is older. We are mature and sensible...
Also, I have heard of stories about a deep kind of love that takes immense amount of time to develop because it is taken slow and you really get to know the person on a deeper level. Is this what true love is?
What do you all think? Thoughts? Opinions?
