I have always said that being in love is a mystery because I didn’t know how to explain how someone loved another. I always just thought it was there; when I asked my mom how I would know when I was in love she said, “when you know, you know.” I was so confused because that did not help my situation at all. How do I just know? Still clueless, I looked up the word ‘love’ in the dictionary. It is defined as “an intense feeling of deep affection.” But what does deep affection feel like?

I would always stare at him and looked away really fast when he glimpsed back; eventually I just stopped looking away and just smiled. I can honestly say that I know what love feels like. It comes slowly and then all at once it’s just a rush of feelings. It is great to have a significant other because you can experience a whole different world. Once you spend a lot of time together you begin to wonder how you ever lived without each other.

You cannot decide how your future will turn out, but you can plan ahead and shape it along the way. Life changes so much unexpectedly and you have to be prepared for whatever is thrown at you.
