Ok well i honestly do not know what love feels like because i haven't really met the "One",Anyway i was wondering when you get butterflies in tour stomache does that mean you love the person? Like i bumped into this guy and i didint see his face at first but when i did the butterflies started fluttering like crazy, Do you think that means somthing. Also i have a friend who had her first time with someone she "loves", and after that she told me she had this certain feeling in her stomache like she hatd him it started after she had sex. Because after sex she started to say she was emotionally scared. She knows she still loves him but dosen't know where this feeling comes from she is avoiding him and dosen't want to touch him he feels really bad about it also. Any idea on any of these thing or whats going on or maybe just advise anything helps questions just need answers.

Hi Batricia

Thanks for your post and welcome!

Those butterfly feelings are both physical and mental and generally are a combination of excitement, nerves, anticipation and a little fear of the unknown - at least when it comes to romance. It can be a different story if it's to do with getting a new job, home etc (or losing them, too). With regard to the sex dynamic, it's usually a great feeling but a little too much, too - yet we don't want it to go away! That's what sexual and romantic interest is all about!

With regard to your friend, we'd really need to hear from her what's going on - please encourage her to write to us!

Thank you for writing!
