I Have Such Strong Feelings for My Boyfriend

Does that mean that I’m in love?

Real love produces strong feelings. But strong feelings don’t necessarily mean you are in love. Feelings come and go quickly, depending on what kind of mood you’re in. To know if your love is real or not, avoid focusing on your feelings. Look instead at the depth of commitment you have for each other.
