You Know You Are in Love When. . .

. . . there are many athletic half-naked male students running around the campus, but you walk through their midst and never notice that they are there or that they are naked. (It's an activity called "Naked Mile", people. I didn't come up with it, so don't ask me what it's all about.)

. . . you drag yourself out of a warm bed at 6 am and the only thing that makes you happy is knowing that your partner will be able to stay sleeping in that nice, warm bed for a few more hours.

. . . you've been preparing to interview a job candidate for a week but you still don't know their gender.

. . . you dress up to stay in with your partner, and don't care what you wear and how you do your hair for work.

. . . you keep noticing how ugly and unappealing all movie stars and famous singers are in comparison with your partner.

. . . the first thing you notice in any store is something that could be a good gift to your loved one.

. . . there is always a goofy smile on your face and you keep wanting to start singing and dancing in the middle of the street.

. . . you are too happy to care if the students hand in homeworks late.

. . . you'd rather be in a tiny town in the Midwest with the person you love than on a Caribbean cruise without him.

You know you're in love when....You use your husband's shirt for a pillowcase.

Let me just say this one thing... said...

You know you're in love don't 'need' them around to make you happy but you'd much rather spend your time with them.

You know your in love when. . . 22 years later, the only thing that's really important is how happy your wife is.

Since you complained of few reactions - enjoy

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.

My favorites are the cheesy:

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen," Bobby - age 5

and this one:

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth." Billy - age 4
