There is no creature worse than the fool who’s fallen in love. The two people who are in love think they are in heaven but their friends and family would disagree. If you think about it, falling in love, going through love and eventually falling out of love is the most torturous of journeys we take in our life. But everybody has to go through it and it’s only once we’ve been through this journey that we understand what true love is. The good thing is that while we go through this journey we are happily oblivious to a lot of its effects. Here are some of the worst things about being in love. Read on to see how many of these things you’ve gone through in your life. So here are the 7 worst things about being in love.
7. Can not Sleep:
When you fall in love, you say goodbye to sleep. Just thinking about your love is enough to keep you awake all night. Lack of proper rest starts affecting your life but you remain oblivious to it. You don’t feel tired and all you want to do is spend time with your loved one or just spend time thinking about them. They say that fools fall in love because only a fool would think that they’d like to spend hours just looking at someone instead of getting much needed sleep.
6. No Interest in Anything:
One of the side effects of being in love is that you lose interest in everything. Sports, news, politics, world affairs, movies, music; nothing seems worthy of your interest except your love. The two lovers get lost in their own world, ignoring the world they inhabit. As countless love stories have shown this can turn out to be quite detrimental to the lovers in the end but they don’t care. When you are in love you have only one interest and that’s your love.
5. Can’t Talk to Friends Without Boring Them:
God help those whose best friend has fallen in love. There is nothing worse than to listen to someone talk for hours about another person that you don’t even know that well. If you are in love chances are your friends are getting bored by your incessant talks about love. It’s not your fault as you just want to share what’s going on in your life with your friends. The problem is that when you are in love nothing else happens in your life. If things are going well you talk about how good it all is and if things are going bad you whine about how bad it all is.
4. Riding the Emotional Rollercoaster:
Being in love can make you highly emotional. You cry at the slightest hint of sadness and immediately jump to intense happiness in an instant if something good happens. You start crying while watching movies or even just listening to a song. In a way it is a good experience to feel every emotional fully and live a full life but after a while this emotional rollercoaster can get to you. You start overreacting on little things and the whole experience can be quite stressful.
3. High Phone Bill:
When you are in love you want to spend every waking second with your loved one. If you can’t do it in person then you want to talk to them on the phone all the time. High phone bill is just a price you have to pay for being in love. It doesn’t even matter if you two don’t have anything new to talk about, you still want to be on the phone and hear each other breathe. It might be sickening to your friends but there is nothing better to do with your time.
2. Can’t Concentrate on Studies or Work:
When you spend all your time either being with your loved one or talking to them on the phone or just thinking about them, then it is very hard to get anything else done. Consequently your studies or work gets affected. You find it hard to concentrate on anything for more than a few minutes. Instead of working you just want to checkout their Facebook page or just dream about them. Again a foolish thing to do but that’s what happens when you are in love.
1. Bad Taste in Music:
One of the worst things about being in love is that your taste in music takes a hit. You suddenly find yourself listening to emo songs full of painful lyrics. It seems these songs were written just for you. Every sad song seems to tell your story. You spend hours listening to this music and know all the lyrics by heart. You even sing along with all the emotion in your heart till your friends start throwing things at you. It’s just another side effect of being in love.
