The first time I fell in love, it was unlike anything I had ever experienced. Sure, I had heard about it in all the romantic comedies I've seen. Yes, I've read about it in the Jackie Collins novels I love oh so much. But I didn't know what it was really like until I experienced it.

Having such strong feelings about another person shook me to my core. It made me re-evaluate my beliefs. I learned what it was like to really care about someone. Everything I had believed, everything I stood for, suddenly disappeared. I found a whole new world opened up for me.

I was no longer closed-minded. I became a yes person. I learned the meaning of never say never. I had a new outlook on life. Here are 10 reasons why being in love is the best feeling in the world.

1. Love Makes You Feel Invincible
Love makes you feel as if you can do anything. Your approach on life is brighter and happier. You have courage to do things you didn't think you were able to do.

2. Love Gives You Incredible Inspiration

Being in love makes you feel inspired. It gives you a can-do attitude that you can approach anything, anywhere, anytime. Being in love gives you motivation. Your attitude is optimistic and always positive.

Love makes you mad -- literally. It encourages you to want to do things you aren't used to doing. It makes you selfless in ways you didn't know existed. You find yourself thinking about the needs of your partner before your own.

10. Love Makes You Believe
Love makes you hopeful. It makes you believe in happily ever after. When you're single, you wonder if you're ever going to meet your soulmate. Love makes you know that is possible and when it happens it's really, really amazing.
