i think i can process that feeling for 3-4 weeks? what makes someone realize they're in love can also be unique to the individual. some common factors that may contribute to this realization include feeling a strong emotional connection with the other person, having a deep sense of affection, caring for them, constantly thinking about them, wanting to spend as much time with them as possible. additionally, physical attraction, shared values and interests, a feeling of mutual support and understanding can also play a role in realizing that i'm in love.
I feel like something like this can't be counted with exact time, but I'll figure it out once I'm constantly curious about what they're up to, want to spend more time with them, and feel butterflies in my stomach when I see their names show up in my notifications.
for me, it happened even before i realize, so it’s… pretty indefinite. sometimes it took me just a few seconds, some other times it took me months, even later. it’s only sure when i find myself constantly think of them, want to check up on them, and be curious about them. something that helps me come to a realization of that is mostly… the conversation we exchange. through conversation, i could always see how vast and diverse one’s mind is, i could even see their perspective of me, and i could see how they care for themselves. i think that’s what makes me sure that i’m in love.
