We all know that feeling you get when someone you like is near, thee old jolt in the pit of the stomach when we hear their voice or know they will be present at an occasion that you are also attending. It is also referred to as butterflies in the stomach. Can anyone think of another way to put it? Its in my brain somewhere, but i seem to have misplaced it d'oh!

Thanks

Well, your user name "discombobulated" would work for describing that feeling. Probably not what you're looking for, though.

i think grammargeek and HWNN are the closest to it. It's like nerves, but it feels good. Can something be described as giving a nervous, exciting and discombobulated feeling at the same time? Is there one word for such a mixture of emotions?

I can't think of an already established term for that... but there's no reason one can't be coined. How about:

A Romantic Proximity Alert
Beforeplay
Caterpillers (before butterflies...)
Near Dear Fear
The Smolders
Feeling the Yearn

I don't think there is a word for it. Butterflies in the stomach, or sometimes I have said I feel "all tickly inside." I don't think of it as in the pit of the stomach as you did. The pit to me sounds negative, and I only think of butterflies as good! You make me realize I haven't felt them for some time...

and now i am singing the song by the police. "Don't stand so, don't stand so, don't stand so close to me" perhaps the inspiration for that song was DSSTM syndrome Think

I can also imagine a conversation with a friend on Saturday morning: 'Hey man, I got hit by the Friday Night Fever last night'

Twinsonic - nor have I Boo hoo! I started the thread through research for character development of a novel i am working on. Boy do I miss *insert any of Geeman's names for it*

Theirs a Sicilian thing (according to Mario Puzo so I really do not know if its true) its called 'The Lightening Bolt'

Haha, GG. You can feel that way about crushes, too, I think.

Geeman, your "Beforeplay" and "Pre-marital stress" made me laugh out loud. Your others are quite good as well. I needed that, thanks. :)

Mind if I use some of these in the future? I think they're ingenious.

My feeling of falling in love is easily understandable. That is when I look into his eyes, not when I see someone's butterfly or furry tail.
Hang on
I forget saying Thanks.
Because I'm hungry.
Where could I find the source of food?
Thank you but no.
No food to eat, now.

I am going to presume your lack of food was the cause of this statement. I laughed so hard that i cried though, sarahhigh it sure would be strange if someones butterfly or furry tail made us fall in love with them!

I always remembered this quote: Love is a feeling you feel you're feeling when you feel you're feeling a feeling ... so eh yeh, that could be the beginning of love or not, just a wee crush maybe

I still don't think any word can come close to just the butterflies in one's stomach. Or, I thought of another saying for it... your stomach doing flip-flops. It isn't so much as a feeling, like china suggested (voluptuous feeling) because a feeling usually last. This is a momentary flutter in your stomach/chest area. A fleeting thing. Then it is gone. if you search for the term it says it is a medical condition, "fight or flight" sort of thing.
