When you are starting to miss someone.

When you feel jealous.

When you have the tendency to call them strange names like baby, pumpkin, cupcake, muffin, honey pie, carrot cake...

When you feel vulnerable.

When you are scared to lose them.

When not seeing them drives you crazy.

When you want to do or say nice things for them.

When they look so cute in anything.

When they can make you feel different confusing and overwhelming emotions at the same time.


If symptoms persist take a dose of reality pill to get out of fantasyland and to see things clearly.

•When it makes me happy to see him happy 😄 and I feel sad when he is hurting :(

"I hear your voice inside me, I see your face everywhere...we belong together."

Yes, something like that. It that's what is happening than it's probably real. :)

When you don't see what is true love described in the Bible, but you only feel, think and live for the one you are in love with. To discern "love" from "in love" should be the question. I think you could love someone without ever being in love with him. Being in love is a rush of endorphines. A chemical reaction. I want love. The real McCoy.

I will know I am in love when a man falls in love with me. Women are responders, not initiators.

Love is not jealous and not easily provoked and that it rejoices in the truth and hopes all things. Clearly all these are feelings.

If you don't feel certain things such as joy in the truth and hope, you are not loving. YES, love is more than feelings; but NO, love is not less than feelings. It is both what you do and what you feel.

I don’t completely agree with this. I think there must be some jealousy in romantic love. If a man is not jealous of a guy flirting with his wife, I don’t think he values his wife very much. I know my grandmother loved my grandfather fiercely, and she was a jealous woman.

I think in the Bible, the jealousy refers to not being jealous of the loved one’s good fortune or traits or something along those lines. For example, I love my sister very much and am glad she is a mother to four beautiful and intelligent children. I am not jealous of her maternity, although I wish I were a mother as well.

If I had a husband, I would not be jealous of his good traits, but be glad he had good fortune or was able to do things I find difficult. I WOULD be very jealous if he flirted with women.

Yes God loves us and He is a jealous God. I guess it is a different kind of jealousy from what is meant in Cor 13.

That is my own interpretation about the two types of jealousy, I could be wrong, of course.

When she smiles at me for no reason (because no woman ever does :cautious: unless they are trying to sell me something..)

Aaaaaaand... Four feminists just passed out. Women do the initiating all the time these days. I know some women who do a lot of initiating.

The root of the word "jealous" is zealous :) He pursues us with a passion because we are His; we belong to Him.
