Love is something you don’t have a say in. When you love someone you don’t get a choice not to. Being in love is when you know that there is someone else in you life that feels as happy to be with you as you do with them. Falling in love is when there is someone you care for more than anything and it could go in any direction. Hopfully it goes for the best
Falling in love happens… being in love requires a litte maintenance.
Falling in love is when you start noticing how much she means to you after you pass the infatuation stage…
Being in love is knowing that through her faults and shortcomings, you love her more for being imperfect, for being stubborn, and for being the person whom you love above all else.
Aha, sorry… I was thinking about my best friend.
falling in love can happen to anyone, and it’s a single moment (or a combination of single moments).
being in love is more of an ongoing thing. it’s something that takes practice and work if you want to stay in that state.
What is Love?
One of my favorite descriptions of love is from the movie Captain Corelli’s Mandolin:
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”
No difference, it’s just L-O-V-E 😉
When you fall in love, your normally caught off guard, caught up in the emotions, and astonished by the moment.
When your in love, you have to face reality, you fight through much more than emotions, and have to choose whats best in the long run even if it means to let your love go.
Being is staying.
Falling is initial.
Falling in love can change within minutes. When you’re in love, it takes alot of work to break that apart. You will always love your first love.
Being in love is falling in love over and over again, with the same person, for different reasons.
Falling takes a moment of recognition, being takes a lifetime.
Falling in love is scary, and exciting. Being in love is like going to bed after a long day: comfortable and precisely what you need.
I think people can compare it to skydiving.
Skydiving, you’re taking a chance to get hurt. You’re falling and falling, and you’ve never felt more alive in your life, even though that scary looking ground is coming up fast. There’s a chance your parachute won’t deploy and you’ll hit rock bottom. But if you trust the person you’re with, they’ll tell you when to pull the string and you’ll glide safely to the ground. by the end of it all, it was exciting while it lasted, but you’re thankful to have made it down in one piece
Falling in love is when it happens. It’s that moment when you look into their eyes and realize, “You mean everything to me, I would do anything for you.” Being in love takes work though, you have to maintain it and stay there if you want to keep it. Sometimes I think the love you had for someone is always there, but sometimes you bury it or suppress it. It should be nourished and grown like a plant if you want to keep it around.
it the feeling that starts when develop feelings for that special person and that feeling stays and never changes
falling in love is the steps/corse you take to love. for example meeting, talking, getting to know each the other.
being in love is after you love them until you dont. it could be a week or foever.
Falling in love is when you start sharing your love to this one person.
Being in love is feeling the love that you shared with that person.
Falling in love is a rush. You feel so many emotions, none of them certain. You never realize you are falling in love until it smacks you in the face. When you realize you’ve fallen in love, then you can be in love. But being in love is still so different. You are so much more certain of your feelings and there is a look that comes over your face and in your eyes when you see them. You can feel the other person, and you just know.
FALLING in love is the first step before BEING in love.
