Today’s Doodle: Forelskelse.
Since last year ‘til now, I still stunned to Julie R. Andersen’s writing, It’s about how ‘Forelskelse’ is less rational than ‘Forelsket’, both on Norwegian, btw.
According to Julie, ‘Forelsket’ is how you feel between just having a crush on someone and actually realizing you are in love with them, all that giddy, excited feeling that’s telling you someone is very interesting 💌.
Forelskelse is when you have a theory that you might be able to fall in love with someone, but you just don’t know them well enough to tell yet. Forelskelse is describing the (usually) transient phenomenon which may or may not be followed by the more lasting “love”.
Or to conclude: Weird irrational infatuation, I guess? Lol. I like that word. Forelskelse. I’m not sure how to pronounce it tho, my Indonesian tongue is twisted haha.
