Ever had that butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling? That sudden jolt of electricity when your crush walks by?
Well, you might just be smitten, my friend.
Smitten is such a delightful word, isn’t it? It evokes images of old-fashioned romance, moonlit walks and love letters penned with a quill. But let me tell you, being smitten is not just a thing of the past. It’s as real as the heart pounding in your chest when you’re in the presence of that special someone.
But how can you tell if you’re truly smitten or just having a fleeting infatuation? Well, there are six tell-tale signs to look out for. And the funny thing? Others might notice them before you do!
So, are you ready to dive into this whirlpool of emotions?
From the wide-eyed stare to the obliviousness to your surroundings, these signs are universal. Once smitten, we’re all pretty much the same.
Before we explore these signs in detail though, remember, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about! Being smitten is one of the most beautiful human experiences. It’s raw, it’s real, it’s riveting.
Now, shall we begin?
1. Daydream believer
Do you find yourself daydreaming about your crush more often than not?
It’s like they’ve taken up permanent residence in your mind, isn’t it? You might be going about your day, doing mundane tasks like washing dishes or typing on your computer, and suddenly—BAM!—there they are.
If you’re constantly lost in thought about this person, my friend, you might just be smitten.
2. You’re tuning into their frequency
Have you noticed a sudden interest in their hobbies or tastes?
If you find yourself downloading their favourite artist’s latest album, or watching a movie genre you never really liked before, it could be a sign that you’re tuning into their frequency.
3. The ‘invisibility cloak’
Ever been told that you zone out when they’re around?
This is what I call the ‘invisibility cloak’. When we’re smitten, we become less aware of our surroundings. It’s like there’s a spotlight on the object of your affection, and everything else fades into the background.
4. Everything reminds you of them
Does everything somehow link back to them?
A whiff of a certain perfume, a song on the radio, even food! If everything reminds you of that special someone, you could well be smitten.
5. Anticipation station
Are you constantly looking forward to the next time you’ll see them?
If even a tiny interaction with them has you practically counting down the seconds until your paths cross again, welcome to anticipation station.
6. Your friends notice
Lastly, have your friends commented on your behaviour?
Sometimes, our friends notice before we do. If they’ve picked up on your constant daydreaming, or perhaps your sudden new music tastes, you might be more smitten than you realised.
In the end, butterflies and that sudden jolt of electricity might just be the tip of the iceberg. Being smitten is a far deeper and more intense experience.
If you recognise some or all of these signs in yourself, well, you just might be smitten, my friend.
Remember, this isn’t psychological advice. It’s an observation, a sharing of experiences that many people go through. It’s an exploration of emotions in their raw form.
So, the next time you feel those butterflies, or that jolt of electricity—revel in it! Because there’s nothing quite like being smitten.
