Okay, a happier subject this time! This question is for all who are madly in love: How soon after meeting him or her did you know that you were in love? What did it feel like? Was it sudden or happened gradually? How did you know for sure that you were in love? How did it compare with any other times in your life that you had been in love? For me, it was almost a year after we met. We were sitting talking one day, not about anything in particular, but I just had such an incredible rush of happiness and I suddenly thought to myself, "I love you." I had never felt that before. It was amazing. I had thought that I had been in love with previous boyfriends, but the feeling this time was so much more intense in every way. With exes I had thought, "This is wonderful, I must be in love. Surely." But this time I didn't need to convince myself; I knew I was.
