I'm not sure of the exact scene in CYMBELINE in which it occurs, but
yes,  Imogen does disguise herself as a boy, Cloten, for part of the play.

Cymbeline himself, the king, is *always* a boy...no disguise!

For another type of view on what it's like to be in love, you could try
Benedick's "Monsieur Love" speech in MUCH ADO (II.iii), which compares a
man's state both in and out of love.

Cheers,
Lauryn Sasso
