Dear Poll: Is Falling in Love Scary or Exciting?

I'm finally caught up on The Bachelor, and after watching Monday night's episode, I couldn't help but pick up on an overall feeling the girls were experiencing — fear. While their circumstances are certainly unique, I happen to think that falling in love is far more exciting than it is scary. Sure, letting your guard down and putting your heart on the line is always risky, but the potential gain far outweighs that risk, if you ask me. What about you? Do you think falling in love is scary or exciting?

Guess the question just automatically assumes that falling in "unconditional love" (giving your love without asking anything back in return) is out of the question. If you offer your love to someone or something (an adopted child or a pet) without expecting the other party to return the love/favor/any other emotions to you, then the experience should just be neutral, neither exciting nor scary.

I love being in love - but I have to make sure the other person loves me jsut as much if not MORE. Otherwise, it is kinda scary!

It's so exciting to me. I love that kind of nervous-happy feeling before seeing a significant other.

For me, it's generally scary. It's something I resist in the beginning.

I think that it works both ways because you do not know if you are going to get your heart broken or just simple be happy. Love is freighting either way you look at it.

it's scary as hell. I'm also in the process of it. Once you feel secure, it's exciting and fun and special, but until you know how he feels for sure, it's scary, and it's hard not to feel really really vulnerable!

The Bachelor is scary because it is not natural. You do stuff in front of the whole wide world and that's not how falling in love supposed to be, it's supposed to be a private moment that you shared with another person or a quiet moment where you come to realization when you meet eye with another.

I think only guys are scaried. Women are so brave that they would love to fall in love any moment. :)

I think I'm in the midst of this right now...or at least, I'm finally allowing myself to. I have to say, I'm scared sh**less, like I almost want to just cut the guy out of my life. Ugh. Pathetic, I know. One side of me wants to allow it, the other side is screaming "No, you don't have time for this!" Talk about conflict.

It's a wonderful feeling, very exciting.. I can't even explain it ♥ I personally don't think it's scary when you're with the right person, but that's just me.

It's amazing and scary at the same time. SO many feelings and thoughts happen at the same time. But it's very worth it.

Exciting! I had to learn to choose carefully before falling in love - it took me awhile. A lot of it is luck. But on the Bachelor, wow, it's very scary indeed.
