You’re in a new relationship, and things are going well. Amazingly well. In fact, everything seems better than amazing. It’s like you’ve discovered a whole new level of energy and emotion, and you want to tell everybody how you feel.

Actually, yes: Forelsket. But it’s Norwegian, so that might be why you weren’t aware of it. A post at Psychology Today defines this and nine other relationship terms that aren’t translatable into English to help you find new ways to express your love. Check it out and add some new terms to your vocabulary.
