"I've been in love probably 3-6 times. I'm not exactly sure since being IN love and having intense love for someone can get blurry. But there have been 3 times when I felt sure enough to tell them that I was in love, so maybe love and in-love sit on a spectrum. The old "you know when you know" is true only when it's reached a threshold, and that can happen quicker and more powerful based on the connection. But, I can only speak for myself. I've also heard that love only happens on a two-way street, that it has to go both ways to be considered love, and that's completely false. Love and being in-love happens within a person."
