Re: How long does it take to fall in love?
I was always a cautious person when it came to relationships so I would say I never fell in love with anyone until at least the 6 month mark. That being said, I definitely knew within the first several dates whether the relationship was worth continuing or whether I would just never get there with that person.
With my H, I was unsure for the first six months or so.
We met on a summer break between semesters in college (went to different schools). We were hot and heavy that whole summer but I fully expected it to be nothing more than a summer fling. He was leaving to study abroad in europe that fall and I figured we would break up before he left. To my surprise he said he wanted to try a LD relationship. I still figured it would die out naturally once we were apart, but it shockingly didn't. The distance intensified our feelings for each other. I took two weeks off of school in the middle of my semester (to my parents horror) and went to europe to visit him. It was on that trip that I knew, without a doubt, I loved him and we would spend our life together. He says he knew he loved me a lot sooner than that, but I really didn't know it myself until that trip, we had been together about six months at that point.
