Falling In Love

I’m teaching at Northwestern University this quarter and, as usual, ideas come up in class that I think my blog readers might find useful (and tuition free!).

Today, one of the topics was Falling in Love. Ever notice that newly ‘in love’ people appear to reside in la la land? Well, your observation is correct.  Here are some of the traits associated with falling in love:

Feelings of compassion for your love

Envy is quieted because of admiration

Loneliness and isolation vanish

Trust and attachment grow

Feelings of hope and optimism prevail

Idealization of your love

Attraction raises desire or presents a challenge

Desire to protect and maintain love

Learning to accept limitations
