Everybody who is saying that this wasn't real love really has no idea what they are talking about. I've talked to this girl THREE times, about 10 word conversations, and I have NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN MORE SURE ABOUT ANYTHING- I am in love with her. 100%. It doesn't matter the age, I'm 15. It doesn't matter the gender, I'm a girl. It doesn't matter how many times I've talked to her. It's love, it's there, don't anyone dare try to tell me differently.
I'm so sick of people saying the words 'I've known for XXX years' and 'I'm in love with'. I don't care how long you've known someone, you do not love people you aren't in relationships with. Love takes a long time to develop, it's called infatuation.
EXACTLY! Stalking, having a crush from afar, being obsessed, etc are NOT love. This is the kind of thing you tend to hear from middle school kids. "Oh that girl that sits a few seats away in math class, she's so cute! I sit there and stare at her all through class, we're totally in love!" Yeah, okay... Or celebrity stalkers. "Drew Berrymore totally wants me. I camp outside her house all night just waiting to see her come out in the morning. We're so in love." Uh huh...
#5, I agree and I disagree. While you cannot love someone who doesn't even know your name (wtf, lol), but you can certainly love your friend. I don't mean the joking "I love you!" after you tease them or something either. Love is not constrained by things like titles. It's a feeling of closeness, affection, adoration, and the will to protect the person with your life. If you are close enough to said friend, and they are close enough to you, then I contest that you can love each other very dearly. That is love, and it does not matter how you address the person.
sorry #60. People who confuse love with infatuation get burned HARD CORE. when someone reviews the differences it isnt always to be rude. some of the... more life experienced FML users might be trying to share a shred of wisdom to help the younger crowd avoid unnecessary emotional trauma
I agree with 44. While the case of OP is crazy to think they r in love with someone who doesnt know there name you can certainly love people you are not in a relationship with. Some people fall in love easier than others and with that a best friend can easily fall 'in love' while the other still just loves you as a best friend or sibling. Do not underestimate the power of love, it hits you like an arrow in the ass ;)
