You're still making plans for yourself. The difference is that when you're falling in love, it comes naturally that you start including that person in your plans. Love makes you want to include that person in many aspects of your life.
You've dated before and you've had your fun but you know that this feels different. It comes easy for you to want to be there for this person, even if it's a tough situation. Deep inside you can feel that you're feeling something you've never felt before.
You know the world can be a scary place. You know that life can throw a million challenges at you but despite all of this, you feel safe. You do so because you know that you are with someone who makes the world feel like an amazing place, even in the darkest of times.
You miss the person like crazy. You feel a void when they spend a long time away from you. It's not because you're clingy or dependent but because you feel that your days are just better when that person is around.
The more you fall in love, the more you'll feel physically attracted to the person. Even the tiny things that you would have picked on, in the beginning, become a positive trait. You realize that you don't want to change anything about this person.
When you're falling in love with someone who reciprocates your feelings, you'll experience the best thing about falling in love. That is, to have someone love you back. Feeling loved is one of the best feelings in the world.
Life becomes fun again. Whatever you're doing, even if it's laundry, if you're doing it with this person, then it will feel fun. Every day will feel special because there's this deep feeling of love inside of you.
As contradictory as it may sound, falling in love will make you feel free. Being in a loving relationship does not mean being stuck and unable to do whatever you want. On the contrary, falling in love makes you feel like you can do anything — anything you've ever dreamed of.
Compromising doesn't seem so hard when you're falling in love. If it means seeing the person happy, without compromising yourself, then you're willing to do it. You know that these sacrifices are worth seeing the person happy.
Falling in love gives you a rush of hope. One that will instill you with this sense that things will be OK, that you will conquer whatever challenges you're facing. Love makes you feel like you can conquer the world if you wanted to.
You know there are other people out there who you can date. You know there are people who want you to go out with them but you find no excitement knowing this. Instead, your attention is focused on that one person in your life.
