How do you know when you’re in love? Here’s exactly how to know.
While some of us have felt love before, perhaps for multiple people, there are others who have never known the feeling. Despite being all over movies, tv shows, and the media, love isn’t the same for everyone. This is why we can often confuse love with infatuation and attraction. It’s not an easy topic to discuss or even describe because love is so subjective.
When you’re in a relationship or dating someone, you may start falling in love with them. Yet, how do you know for sure that it is love and not anything else? There are some signs that won’t seem surprising if you’re in love, but others are a little less obvious. Sometimes when we are in love, we can be blinded and not see the signs when they’re there. Love is so puzzling and unclear because it never feels the same as anyone. Keep these signs on your mind next time you’re wondering if you’re actually in love.

You can’t remember a life without them in it
It might only be a few short months since your first date but living your life has never felt better and you can’t remember how you even got through the day without them. It might be that good morning text, or the cute 2 A.M. calls when you’re emotional, but you can’t even fathom a life before they were in it. Surprisingly you did have a life before them, it’s just that being in love makes it seem ordinary for them to always be there. This also goes for looking into your future, when you daydream you may often see them there. You simply won’t be able to think of your future without them supporting you and being by your side.
A few hours feel like minutes
You love spending time with them more than anything else, but when you do, the time seems to fly by. There’s never enough time to speak about everything you want to. When you’re together an hour or two will only feel like 10 minutes. Even when you spend a week together, when it finally ends, it is still sad for both of you. Just being with them gives you the energy to last a lifetime and want to be around them for as long as you can.
They’re the best part of your day
We all have bad days, it’s only natural to want to go home and sleep. However, when you’re in love with someone, no matter how bad your day has been you’ll always feel better when you see them. They’re the highlight of your day and the idea of seeing them allows you to carry on even if you don’t want too. What is even better is when you’ve had a really good day and then you see them. Their mere presence will just brighten your day that little bit more.
It feels real and effortless
You shouldn’t have to put effort into your conversations, it should just flow. Real love is effortless and even sitting in silence will feel natural. You may not know how love feels as you haven’t ever felt it but the truest form of love won’t be something you question. It is more than likely if you think you’re in love with someone that you are. However, if you’re trying really hard and the chemistry still isn’t there, then it might not be love after all.
You still love them even when you don’t want too
Love isn’t always dreamy rainbows and clear skies. Sometimes there will be arguments and you two may disagree but that doesn’t mean to say you’re not in love. Even when you two aren’t talking or you don’t want to love them you know you’re in love when you just can’t help it. Love often hits high waves and your boat will start to rock, but you have got to keep on and know that love conquers all. It may be annoying that you love them when you don’t particularly want too but that’s being in love and we can’t stop it.
They inspire you and make you want to be a better person
We aren’t saying you’re a bad person to begin with, but it may be the smaller things. Perhaps you want to quit smoking because they don’t like it, or you just want to improve yourself. Being in love often inspires you to be better and improve on aspects of yourself when you see that they’re not how you want them to be. You shouldn’t change the way you are but bettering yourself as a person because it’s beneficial to you is always a great thing.
You realize why it didn’t work out with anyone else before them
Everything starts to make sense, and you realize why nothing else has ever worked out before you met them. At the time of previous relationships, you may have laid around wondering why it doesn’t feel right. Now that you’re in love it just works and you’re glad it never worked out with anyone else. Perhaps it’s the way they treat you or the way you feel, something will be different about your relationship when you’re in love compared to other times. Life may have given you a lot of ugly frogs, but you’ll soon realize your prince is standing right in front of you. That is the beautiful thing about love.
Being in love is an amazing experience and you should really embrace every second of it. Next time you find yourself worrying or getting anxious about your feelings, take a break and know that things take time. Even love doesn’t simply appear on your doorstep one day.
