Many of us fall a victim of confusing LOVE with GETTING USE TO.
For the record purpose, most times we feel we are in love not knowing that we are getting use to a particular person, so very quickly this is the logic. A calls B regularly, B automatically feels something isn’t right whenever A haven’t called. A and B have a conversation about their day to day activities. So at this point one or both feels it is love because of a programmed feeling of wanting their shared moments over and over.
Personally, I think it is right and appropriate that you take your time to enjoy the “getting use to’ era before setting out for a relationship because it is always so flashy that you would be lost in the moment, they say all that glitters ain’t gold, let the excitement die a bit and if you still feel the spark, then give it a shot.
Affection also feels like Love, It is a natural body configuration to adjust and enjoy any form of excitements. To detect love it needs your head and sensitivity.
Too many at times, when a relationship is built on ‘Getting Use To’ it ends quickly then the question of i thought you were in love with me at the earliest stage then hence the response i thought so myself.
Don’t get it twisted though. Love is a beautiful thing.
