    Heart Filling

    Dear Teachers,

    A. I’m afraid my boyfriend has lost the heart filling butterfly feeling.
    - What does “the heart filling butterfly feeling” mean?

    B. Everytime I talk about us will be getting married in a few years, he changes the subject.
    - Is this natural?

    Thanks a million

    Re: Heart Filling

    Probably better as heart filling, butterfly feeling

    It means he is no longer living in a toe curling ,walking on air state. In other words he is no longer 'head over heels, unable to make rational judgement' condition, because he is blinded by love
