I FIND that many of the moments I experience while in love are often indescribable within the English language. Where is the word for that moment in between first realizing you care for someone new, but are not totally in love with them yet?

We have twenty different ways to describe the word ‘purple,’ but nothing that captures the euphoric moment of seeing a long-distance lover for the first time in months.
