Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

These "butterfly" feelings havve an emotional cause; excitement or nervousness or anticipation. It's your body's physical reaction to your good feelings for your boyfriend and that's a positive thing! If we're nervous in a negative way, we can also get butterflies.

Hi Anon

I just meant that we can also feel butterflies about some not so great things like before a serious surgery or a court date.

But generally speaking, butterflies in our stomach is usually a good thing!
