I believe that it is possible to fall in love in a week because love itself exists within you and when someone enters your life who connects with you on a special and deep level, that love can be awakened.

Once awakened, love flows like a river on a windy day. The current is strong and it carries you along with it towards the recipient. 

There’s not much that can stop the flow of water besides a strong barrier.  

What I want to differentiate between, is passionate love and compassionate love. These are two different forms of love experienced by people.

Most people are in search of passionate love.

It’s the form of love you experience that intoxicates you. Everything around you is enriched and the source of your love lights up your life within the first few months of falling in love. 

In this case, you can fall in love in a week because this form of love is awakened without control.

Most people associate this form of love with the honeymoon phase experienced by new couples. 

It opens you up to experience this person in every way possible as love flows out of your. 

That’s how I perceive the idea of being in love.

You’re in a state of experiencing and expressing love towards someone without any control.

So, if you are in the right space to fall in love, then it’s definitely possible that you can fall in love in a week.

I thought about including some statistics about falling in love but let’s be honest, since when do statistics matter when it comes to matters of the heart? 

You’re not just some statistic and you’re capable of experiencing life at a pace that you determine. 

Let’s take a look at some of the prerequisites for falling in love in a week.

1. You can’t be in love with someone else

I hear these stories of people claiming that even though they were in a relationship, they just fell in love with this new person even though they’re in love with their partner. 

I think this is absolute nonsense.

If anything, I’m more inclined to believe that they are infatuated rather than in love. 

If these people did fall in love with someone in a week, then it unfortunately means that they aren’t actually in love with their partners. 

They may care about them but they aren’t in love but that’s a topic for a different day.

More often than not, your heart needs to be unoccupied by the memory and attachment to someone before it can fall in love with another. 

This is one of the reasons why people who are single for a significant period of time suddenly and unexpectedly fall in love.

Their heart is unoccupied by anyone.

So, when someone comes along and connects with them on an emotional and physical level, it triggers the love response.

2. You can’t be hung up on an ex

The number one reason why most rebound relationships fail is because the rebounder is trying to escape reality by redirecting their love towards someone else.

The problem with this approach is that you can’t make yourself fall in love with someone.

You can be attracted and enamored by many people and still remain in love with just one person.

If you have recently been through a breakup and you were still in love with your ex at the time of parting ways, then it’s unlikely that you can fall in love in a week with someone else.

You first have to disconnect your love from the idea of your ex and the future you dreamed of having with him or her.

Only when that disconnect occurs will you be able to fall in love with someone else.

3. You have to feel safe to love

Just like how you can’t heal in the same place that made you sick, you can’t let your guard down in a place that endangers you. 

People don’t realize this but to fall in love is to surrender the well-being of your heart to another person. 

You’re placing yourself in a vulnerable position.

To do that, you must feel some degree of safety with that person. 

Do you know why some women are so attracted to dangerous men? Because it makes them feel like if they’re by his side, it’s the safest place to be. 

Even if that thinking is flawed, it does illustrate the importance of feeling safe in any kind of relationship. 

4. You need to be in peaceful state

When I look back at the times that I fell in love and had a serious relationship with someone, it was always preceded by a period of peace, acceptance and happiness. 

The times when a connection would fade or not lead to anything was usually when my life was chaotic and consumed by stress, tragedy and loss. 

In a peaceful state, we engage with our truest self.

More importantly, we attract those who give off a similar energy or vibe as we do in that state.

Since like attracts like, it’s not surprising to me that being peaceful and not overcome with doubt, worries, stress and depression can open up someone to falling in love in a week.  

It’s unreasonable to imagine that you could fall in love while you’re in a state of hatred, pain, depression, anger and negativity. 

Joy, peace, comfort, compassion, laughter and compromise are all associated with passion and love. 

Find peace and you will usually be accompanied by all of those passionate and loving emotions.

In conclusion

I think it’s safe to assume that love shouldn’t be put on a timeline. Allow it to manifest organically and I’m willing to bet that it’s possible you’ll fall in love in a week.

But, if you don’t, you shouldn’t be upset about it nor should you naturally assume that something is wrong.

If you try to contain the period in which you fall in love, you could talk yourself out of beautiful relationships that require patience and time to grow and be nurtured.

I’m of the opinion that compassionate love that develops over a long space of time is something more sustainable and meaningful for a long term relationship.

It’s the kind of love that grows with time and creates a form of intimacy that can continuously be nurtured regardless of the circumstances surrounding your relationship.
