Well, I've never had a girlfriend or a serious commitment to one girl, so I haven't experienced the emotions. But I can say that, from mental calculations (of stuff) it has occurred to me that Love is something that gives, not asks for. So to truly be in love, you'd need to want that person to be happy even if it would cost you your own happiness, even if they didn't want to be with you. When someone says they're in love these days, it usually means they want the person they're in love with to love them. It is a selfish thing commonly mistaken for love. Actual love goes: "give, give, give", while the fake love goes: "give, give, give to me". So someone's so called being in "love" turns into madness and hatred and becomes "Jeez, ur such a ass!", "Pffft, ur a whore anyway", and "'aight! Fuck you too". That's not true love. So to answer your question straight up; no, when someone says their in love, they're really not.
