Love is a funny thing. You can’t always predict who you’ll fall for. Sometimes it’s the last person you would expect. Maybe you have a lot in common, or maybe you’re complete opposites.
But there’s just something about them that catches your eye and makes your heart race. And before you know it, you’re head over heels. Love sneaks up on you when you least expect it, and it can be the most wonderful feeling in the world.
So if you find yourself unexpectedly falling for someone, don’t fight it. Just enjoy the ride and see where it takes you. But, can you fall in love with someone you never dated at all? That’s what we will be discussing today.
Can you fall in love with someone without having dated them?
It’s definitely possible to fall in love with someone you’ve never dated. Maybe you’ve been friends for years and suddenly realize you have deeper feelings for them.
Maybe you’ve been crushing on someone from afar and finally worked up the courage to talk to them, only to realize that you’re already head-over-heels. Or maybe you’ve connected with someone online and feel like you’ve got a real connection, even though you’ve never met in person.
Whatever the case may be, it’s definitely possible to fall in love with someone without ever going on a date with them. And who knows? Maybe your relationship will stay platonic, or maybe you’ll take things to the next level. Either way, it’s all about following your heart.
Can you fall in love with someone you never met?
It’s not uncommon to develop a crush on someone you’ve never met. Some people claim to have een fallen in love with fictional characters because of the way they’re portrayed, their personalities, words or charm, etc.
Whether it’s a celebrity, a character in a book or movie, or even somebody you see regularly but has never spoken to, it’s perfectly normal to feel attracted to someone you don’t know. In some cases, these crushes can even develop into full-blown infatuations.
While it’s possible to love someone you’ve never met in person, it’s important to be wary of putting somebody on a pedestal. After all, you don’t really know them, and they may not be the perfect person you imagine them to be. Read this article later on how to stop romanticizing someone, especially if you don’t even know that much.
It’s also worth considering whether or not it’s worth pursuing a relationship with somebody you’ll never meet. After all, what’s the point of falling in love with somebody you can never be with? Ultimately, it’s up to each individual to decide whether or not falling for someone they’ve never met is something they’re comfortable with.
Why it’s a bad idea to fall in love with someone you never dated?
While it’s certainly possible to be friends with someone you’re romantically incompatible with, it’s generally not a good idea to fall in love with them. And even if it’s possible to fall in love with someone you never dated; you won’t know if the two of you are romantically compatible until you date. And, if you end up finding out that you’re not compatible romantically after you date, then that’s likely to be a dealbreaker in any romantic relationship.
If you’re not compatible partners, you’ll probably end up getting your heart broken if you try to be a couple, even if you had a good successful friendship before. Chances are you will also ruin the friendship you had prior to that as it will become a bit awkward after you’ve seen a side to that person that you clashed with. So if you’re wondering whether it’s worth taking the risk to fall in love with someone you never dated, the answer is almost certainly no.
Save yourself the pain and find someone who you date first then find out if you’re both romantically compatible before you allow yourself to fall for them. If you end up being romantically compatible enough to be a couple then you can still be the best of friends too.
In fact, a romantic partner can be more than just that, they can be your best friend, confidant, accomplice, and more but that’s only possible if you make the right choice. This is why you should see if you’re attracted enough to a person and then make a move or ask them out and date them before you allow yourself to fall in love with them.
Obviously, we cannot always control who we fall in love with, but it’s preferable to do things this way to avoid getting your feelings hurt and your heart broken. This way you’ll be much happier in the long run.
If you’re open and emotionally available you can fall in love quite easily with anyone. In fact, check this article out later to see how people can even fall in love through texting.
However, ideally, it’s better to date a person and learn more about them on many levels and see if you click on a romantic level too before you allow yourself to start catching feelings for them. This way, you leave no room to bad surprises and dealbreakers that can ruin it all after you’ve already fallen for someone.
