58 of the Best Unexpected Love Quotes

As humans we have a need to feel love and to be loved. Feeling love and being loved can sometimes be unexpected. Unexpected by definition is something you did not see coming, or something you didn’t even think was possible. Unexpected love can be both good and bad, it’s good that you’ve developed feelings for another human but sometimes the unexpected love could develop in some situations that aren’t very ideal.

In any case, new love is always exciting in itself but unexpected love can have you swept up in the moment. People say that unexpected love is the best kind of love because they weren’t looking for it, it just found them. Unexpected love can also leave you feeling unsure or confused, but once you work through that confusion it can be the best thing that has ever happened to you.
