Love is a powerful drug. You don't just feel it - it consumes you. It can stop time and take you to a new dimension where nothing and no one matters except for you and your lover. But not every love is true love. They say you will know when true love hits you, but sometimes it's tough to tell. Some people don't even think true love "hits" you at all – they believe it comes slowly and happens naturally.
There is a big difference between true love and ordinary love. Both are powerful and consuming, but true love knows no boundaries. It makes you feel at home when you're with your loved one, and it makes you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Not only in their arms, but by their side, too, feeling proud of them every step of the way. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by the strong whirlpool of feelings love brings our way and we can't think straight. When it's true love, it doesn't matter because the other person feels the same way and your feelings are safe with them. But when you're in love with someone who isn't capable of feeling real love for you, things always seem off, even when everything is OK in the relationship.
