snowbird answered Tuesday May 16 2006, 2:07 pm: Its the feeling you get when the butterflys have worn off and you have seen them at their worst and still love them. When you think about your future it involves them. When you can feel their feelings and are sad when they are and happy when they are happy. [ snowbird's advice column | Ask snowbird A Question ]
spacefem answered Tuesday May 16 2006, 2:55 am: Well, it's not the funny fireworks nervous feelings or thinking about them all the time... that just means you have a crush, it happens all the time, it'll be over with in a month.
Love is when you've found a million things inside that person that you know you can't find anywhere else. You have real, substantial conversations all the time that bring you closer together. You respect each other and want to spend time together and make sacrifices. You have common values, not just interests, and you both want to grow and be better people for the other person.
It's not always totally logical... you could meet someone who seems perfect for you, but they never really inspire you or capture your interest. It can also be misleading, because you could just think someone's really hot and you want to be around them but that's not love. It's a mix of solid ground and unexplainable clouds that you get to, and people say you'll know it when it hits you but I'm not so sure about that, I think it hits you first, then you wake up and realize it, but it's different for everyone, you'll have to find it in your own journey.

AskWhatever answered Tuesday May 16 2006, 1:58 am: Yeah this is definitly a confusing thing in life. It is always hard to tell if it is true. Most people dont understand it or are in denial but there is truly NO age limit for love. It just happens, sometimes its real and sometimes you just think you are. I cant tell you if it is real but i can tell you this, you can be easily decieved. Sometimes when you are being treated like never before or if that someone is making you feel special then you tend to think its love. I know ive been through it. They treat you great, make you feel great about yourself, and give you lots of attention, TRUST ME ON THIS you will undoubtedly fall for it sometime or another. Every girl loves attention and feeling like someone really truly cares about her, and that often causes people to see something thats not there. But hey, its worth a try, maybe its just in your head, but if you always believe that it IS just in your head then you may let something GREAT pass you by. You will be heartbroken, but trust me, a couple heartbreaks is worth it if it helps you find the one that will fix it.
Cj answered Tuesday May 16 2006, 12:19 am: you don't.
Thats the sad part.
Here is one way to test if it is true love.
Go camping with the person, and make sure you forget to pack enough rations. If you still feel love throughout the whole thing, it is real.
Teza answered Tuesday May 16 2006, 12:12 am: This is one of the hardest questions to answer because you can't explain if you love someone. There are many ways a person can love someone else and it's hard to understand. When you love someone, you basicly can't live without them. They're really important to you, don't ever want them to get hurt or leave. When you're in love, you'll know. There is no possible way to describe how love works. It's kind of like the way you love your family, but in a different way but trust me, once you're in love, you'll know. [ Teza's advice column | Ask Teza A Question ]

soendearing answered Monday May 15 2006, 11:07 pm: It's kind of hard to explain, but i'll give it a shot.
It's the things you feel when your with the person, as if you can't help but smile just by looking at them.
It's the way your stomache tingles when you're close to them/with them.
It's the way how you feel, like you need to see them everyday.
How seeing them makes you extremely happy.
And how you miss them 5 minutes after they left.
Those are just some examples, there really is no way to determine if you are in love, yet even if it's true love. Everyone has their own definition of it. And those are just parts of my way explaining it.
Devina answered Monday May 15 2006, 11:06 pm: When you are in love with someone, you don't see him/her as you want him/her to be, but as themselves. You always want that person to be happy, to protect them, be with them, and want the best for them. True love is when you have the courage to let that person go when you know that he/she can't love or be with you. True love is when you sacrifice something for someone with no pity but with your own will. You'll know if it's true love when you're hurt when he/she's hurt and you're sad when he/she's sad...
I wish you will find out soon. Hope I've helped! ^_^ Wish you the best luck always. [ Devina's advice column | Ask Devina A Question ]
