Most of us have been through it or are in it, some call it the heebiejeebies, the warm fuzzies, you may know it more commonly as love, what a buzz!

How do you know you're in love? There's no mark that appears on your body, nothing physical or tangible (apart from empty bank accounts and an unimaginable amount of hair and hair pins all over the house), it's not something that's defined by an age but maybe it is something that most people might experience at the same time.

A British dating site, IllicitEncounters, has surveyed one thousand random people to find out when they actually fell in love for the first time.

The results are entirely surprising, with 55 percent of people saying they first fell in love between the ages of 15 and 18!

Twenty percent of us then fall in love between the ages of 19 and 21

The next age group was 22 to 25 and saw only eight percent of people falling in love for the first time, with 17 percent of people falling in love after the age of 25.

On top of these results, they found that 40 percent of people's first serious relationship lasts between one and five years.

Twenty-five percent of those surveyed said they were still with their first loves, which really warms ya heart!
