Butterflies in my stomach - this English idiom means to be feeling nervous or anxious about something that is about to happen. It is the fluttery feeling we get in our stomach. Some people say they have this feeling in their stomach when they are in love as well.
Teacher ! when some people fall in love they can say " I have butterflies in my my stomach , right ?
Amy : You will have work interview tomorrow morning ?
JoJo : Yes, I have butterflies in my stomach ! This is my first job interview.
Yes they can say that. That's right.
I suspect when people first meet someone special and new they are nervous or anxious so the feeling is very similar!
