Men Confess: What Makes Them Fall in Love

What makes men fall head over heels? We asked all the men we know, and here's what they had to say about the L-word...

Most people have a hard enough time admitting that they've fallen in love with another, never mind explaining what brought on such euphoria in the first place. Even women -- the fairer, more verbal sex -- rarely go into detail about how their hearts were won. Maybe that's just because, according to an old Chinese proverb, "Couples who love each other tell each other a thousand things without talking." Um, right! Staffers at iVillage asked all the men they know what makes them fall in love. Here, the juicy secrets they revealed:

"I found true love only one time in my life. Talk about compatible, we had everything in common -- from taste in food to how many times we wanted sex. There was nothing about her I didn't like, until I found out that she did it only to please me and she didn't like anything we did together (except maybe the sex). She was a great actress and a great heartbreaker! My advice: Be honest and search for compatibility." --Giovanni, 41, CA

"I fell in love with my fiance, and I didn't even see it coming. One day I didn't get a chance to see her and found myself missing her smile, her laugh, her smell. You begin to recognize, expect and miss the way she does things or makes you feel. And then she surprises you, and you love her even more. I love the way she walks, moves, even the way she puts things in her purse." --Ed, 26, NY

"True story: I met a woman online, and when we got together for our first date, she said, 'I hope you don't mind, but I don't feel like a fancy dinner. Can we just go get some burgers and a few beers, then go back to my house and play video games?' Now, I'm not a big video gamer, but even I thought that was adorable. It was true, pure love. Then we broke up, but still..." --Tom, 34, NY
