Do we make the choice to fall in love or can we not help it? I am not sure to be honest. Because I would like to think you can't help falling in love - thats a more romantic idea. Although in a way you make the choice. You choose to have those feelings and for them to be about that particular person. Maybe I'm not the right one to talk coz I don't think I have been in love. I've been in "puppy love" but not real love.

sheesh. Of course you can choose, but only then to a certain degree. You can't love until you first let yourself love. If that makes sense.

i think it's part choice part 'accident'.
you get a choice to some degree but it can still happen when you least expect it. and you can still love somebody when you wish that you don't!!

I fell in love without even looking for that someone. I don't think that I made a choice to love them - Just woke up one morning and thought "I'm in love!"

well i dont believe that you can just wake up one morning and be in love, its a gradual feeling and and thats where the phrase falling in love comes from..when you know your falling for someone wen u cant think of anything or anyone else but them!! anyone agree!!

You can wake up in the morning and be in love! I woke up in the morning and thought to myself *I can't stop thinking about you!* Your speaking from your own experience - You can hardly judge my feelings of love and don't bother telling me what the phrase love means because my love isnt a phrase
