How NOT to fall in love with a guy from class? I dont see why you wouldn t, despite what most people say dating a classmate has many advantages, you dont need to worry about making time to see them if your always busy during the week. You always know about whats going on in each others life, you can still have your friends he can still have his, but you can see each other all the time. Its also a proven fact that when two classmates date since they are able to help each other study and whatnot their grades and productivity increase. So hey if you like him go for it. You cant just turn off love. but if its just lust your feeling then, just wait until another cute guy comes your way and all your thoughts of this guy will fade away ;) When is the right time to fall in love? Any time. You might find that special someone in highschool, college, once you hit the work force. any time. Theres never a perfect time in life, you will always have something going on weither work or school. If you fall for someone see where it takes you, dont worry about everything else, if things arent working out you can always end it. How do you know if you fall in love? Love starts off like any other crush, its after you start seeing each other a few times you will know the difference. You may think hey that guys cute, or ya I really like flirting with this guy. Its not until you start sharing those more intimate thoughts, showing each other you would be there for one another, you find things that connect you and you have in common. When your in love you literally fall head over heals and think of no one else besides that person and even after a few dates you still get those sweaty palms and racing heart each time you see that person. Once you experience it you know what it is, you just need to get out there and experience the different feelings. The feeling of having that significant other is very addictive :P Im personally a very codependent person so I love knowing I have that special person to share things with, even if its something stupid I find exciting. Someone who makes you happy just knowing their happy. Its a great feeling especially in the honeymoon stage at the beginning, theres no better feeling :) As for my love story. its filled with good times and bad, and Im about to start a new chapter with a new person. I had an amazing relationship for 3 years, which I would do again, every time given the option. We met in my last year of highschool. My first date, first kiss, first everything, and it was wonderful. We were perfect together for the longest time, and I fell in love with her, and I will always be in love with her and she ll always hold a special place in my heart. We did everything from traveling, to looking for appartments, I couldnt have asked for someone to experience what starting a life after school would be like. However as they say all good things come to and end, and over the years we started to slowly grow apart being in separate schools and having new friends. We still care about each other, and that will never change, but sometimes things that dont seem so great happen for good reasons even if you cant see them yet. My first was there for a major turning point in my life and she helped me find the person I am today. Now she s moving on and experiencing it for herself, and I am starting to open a new chapter in my life, after meeting someone from my school program recently and we really hit it off. I tried dating a few before but things just didnt. click. But so far things are going pretty good with this new girl and we ll see what happens, maybe she will be the one :) only time will tell! Now get out there and experience love, its a part of life and unless your feeling it your not living :) Good luck!
