Falling in love can be exhilarating and scary all at the same time. Feeling that wave of uncontrollable emotions and butterflies in your stomach can make you say and do crazy things. The following steps will show you how to deal with these exciting emotions while enjoying the ride.

Enjoy the experience. Falling in love is one of life's greatest thrills, so soak up every moment of it.

Keep your life in balance by honoring your commitments to friends, family, school and work. While it's tempting to spend every spare moment with the newfound love of your life, you should continue to be there for your friends and to go to work.

Bring your new love around your friends and family so that they can all get to know each other and feel included in this new, exciting part of your life.

Allow the positive emotions you're feeling from falling in love to spill into other areas of your life as well. Instead of being grouchy at work in the mornings, liven up the atmosphere with your positive attitude. Be nicer and more loving toward your friends and family as well.
