Love is a universal language, it crosses all boundaries and it is not limited to race, age, or religion. Love is eternal, it comes with a strong feeling for attachment to a member of the opposite s3x. When you fall in love with a person, you become vulnerable, you tend to let your down your guard for the person.

The person you are love with becomes an angel, they are perfect in everything they do and everything they say is right to you. The moment you spend with that special person seems endless, you want it to last for eternity. You just want to be by your lover’s side, nothing else in the world matters when you are with them.

Many believe that falling in love is divine, while others believe it is not, some scientists believe that you fall in love when there is a release of certain chemicals into your system. They, the scientists, argue that we fall in love when a chemical amphetamine runs through the emotional centre of our brains.
