A lot of people often pose the question – “how do you know when you’re in love?”
When we fall in love, a lot of us just know, however, for others, it may take some time for them to truly grasp the concept of love and falling in love. There is never a straightforward answer when it comes to knowing if you’re in love, but there may be some things we can take a look at to help you figure out if your partner is the one.
Here are our top 5 signs that point to you being in love.
When you’re in love, you automatically have a great feeling of positivity. Everything around you is suddenly brighter and beautiful. You’ll exude happiness from the inside out. Whether or not negative things are happening around you, your attention is shifted and focused on the good things in your life, especially your new found love. Scientifically speaking, when you love and are feeling loved, there is a spike in your dopamine. (Live Science Staff)
When people fall in love, there’s a high possibility that you’re committing to something long term, which means planning for the future. Love expert, Lucy Brown says that the drive to be with another person is sort of like a drive toward water and other things needed to survive. Therefore, when you’re in a relationship and you feel comfortable planning your future with your partner, it is a step in the right direction.
EVERYTHING REMINDS YOU OF THEM
When you’re in love, you’ll notice that everywhere you go and everything you do, there’s some little detail that reminds you of them. If you find yourself thinking of them more regularly, there’s definitely a deeper emotional attachment that you have with them.
If your partner is someone who makes you want to be the best version of yourself, you’re on the pathway to love. However, don’t get this mixed up with changing yourself completely. Being a better version of yourself and completely changing are two very different things and can lead you on two very different paths.
When you’re in love with someone, you’re willing to do crazy and rational things for them. Whether this is good or bad, is up to you, however, unconditional love is very much a huge part of being in a relationship. Unconditional love means having affection for someone with no limits, no boundaries and no conditions – in other words, complete and utter love.
Remember that these five signs are definitely not applied to absolutely everyone. People experience different kinds of love and relationships so it’s up to you to figure out what love is and what it feels like.
