In movies and TV shows, falling in love is always portrayed as a slow, beautiful thing. It usually happens during a montage, while the happy couple laughs, talks, and goes on romantic walks through a park. It looks so peaceful and easy. But in real life, that's not always the case. Falling in love is different for everyone, but no matter how it happens for you, there are certain things you'll notice about yourself if you're falling in love. The reality is, falling in love is nerve-wracking, but exciting and scary all at the same time, so it's normal to feel like a lot of emotions are going through your heart, soul, and mind.
