How sweet! I got a little misty eyed! I agree w/ so much of what you said...especially the little things point! So true! Just a simple hello in the middle of your day when you least expect it...can make you swoon! I'd been fortunate enough to have some of these same feelings myself in recent time, and though it didn't work out in the end, I know there's something greater out there for me...when I least expect it. =) Thanks for sharing such a personal experience...and giving a little hope in the process.


I am SO not there anymore!! I was thinking that drinking sour milk would give me that butterfly feeling... But I think maybe not.

Just found your site. Looking forward to checking it all out.


In addition to the things you listed, I'd have to add laughing! There's something about being able to laugh together... whether it's laughing your way through the hard times, the good times, or just because... it feels good to keep humor in your relationship.

I am really curious how you met your love:) Have you told the story on your blog? I keep catching hints in your posts... Maybe I have missed it?

By the way, Happy Anniversary!

Saggleo - Awww, yay! I'm glad this post was meaningful for you. And I'm even more delighted to hear about your positive attitude. Like you, I always believed there was something great waiting for me -- and it turns out there was!

Paul - Thank you! I'm glad you found Positively Present and I do hope that you find a way to rekindle the butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling.

SLSL - Laughing is a great addition to this list and I'm so glad you mentioned it. I have lots of that in my relationship too and it definitely makes a very big, positive impact on how we interact with one another. Great point!

Perigee - Thanks! I'm sure I've told bits and pieces of it on my blog, but I met him at one of my best friend's wedding, which was held in Jamaica last year. He is her brother! :)

Very sweet. I love my husband the same way. I think it's really important for us to help each other grow in new ways. We take an active interest in each other's hobbies and encourage each other to try new things.

Michelle - I'm happy to hear that you have the same butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling. I like that you both help one another grow. That's such an important element of any positive relationship and I'm glad you mentioned it!

that's quite a great topic
most people feel bad when these feelings fade
thanks for the Advice :)

Farouk - You're welcome! I'm happy that I was able to share some advice on this topic.

I love how you mention the little things! It is amazing how they all add up to something more in our hearts. :)

I think that's a perfect pairing ... when somebody makes you feel like more when you're together.

CC - Thanks! I really believe the little things are SO important. I'd much rather have a million little things than one big thing.

J.D. - Yes, it really is. I'm lucky to have someone who makes me better and who makes me feel more like myself when I'm with him.

Indeed small things make a big difference. I love my Beloved Husband more than HE imagine, the more I love him the more I miss him even though our marriage was arranged marriage but I am totally diagree whit people whom claim that arranged marriages are not successful, trust me I am here to give him my life if he ask me for :)we have been marriage almost about 5 years from now :)but yet I feel like we are like a new couple:)
May God bless our and Yours (LOVE) Ameen

Sister - Thanks for sharing your thoughts on love. I'm so happy to hear that you have a loving relationship and that you still have the butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling even after five years. :)

... and i am having the butterflies since i first met her.
Months passed loving them in my stomach, although knowing that she doesn't know that they are there.

Afraid to let me down, but loving her even when i know i don't have her, should i face up my true feelings to her?

Hi Dani,
You site is indeed a blessing, your articles are very soothing, esp for those who often harbors negative thought (like me).

Few days ago, for the first time in 31 years of my life I got confessed by a best friend. We've known each other for years, but still couldn't have good sleep after that and feeling very nervous, unconsciously. That's when my friend named it the "butterfly in the stomach" sensation. Among all the explanation I've read, yours is the most descriptive. I especially agree with step 3! Never thought that a simple good morning SMS can give energy and mood boost! I begin to see the world in different light and it makes me accept myself positively. Thanks for the advise, and please keep on writing! :)

Moccy - Thanks so much for your kind words about the site and my articles. I'm glad you were able to find this one and it provided a good explanation for you. Thanks for reading!
