How to Tell If You’re in Love: How to Truly Know If You Love Someone

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.

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.

Now in any relationship I’ve found there are 2 pivotal moments that determine if your relationship ends in heartbreak or you get to live happily ever after so it’s vitally important that you take the next step and read this right now, because at some point the man you want is going to ask himself: Is this the woman I should commit to for the long term? That answer determines everything… Do you know how men determine if a woman is girlfriend material (the type of woman he commits himself to) or if he sees you as just a fling? If not you need to read this next: The #1 Thing Men Desire In A Woman…

The second problem almost all women experience: At some point he starts to lose interest. He doesn’t call you back or he becomes emotionally closed off. He seems like he’s losing interest or pulling away – do you know what to do? If not you’re putting your relationship and the future of your love life in great danger, read this now or risk losing him forever: If He’s Pulling Away, Do This…

    when it feels effortless and all you do is out of genuine love, that’s it. just hope he reciprocates that.

  • jenesa October 17, 2018, 6:12 pm

    if you can ignore the irritating small things your partner does, then you are in love!

  • nora October 16, 2018, 1:40 pm

    these are all true, i agree with you. but don’t rush things. women tend to fall hard so fast without really knowing the guy. spend more time with him and you’ll see the real him.

  • olive October 15, 2018, 4:15 pm

    when i am in love, i am shy to look at that person directly in the eye and i mumble whenever i talk.

  • cherry October 11, 2018, 5:11 pm

    for me, falling in love is scary but exciting. i fell in love with someone and now i cannot imagine life without him.

  • riki October 10, 2018, 1:01 pm

    you just know it because all you want to do is be there for him and do things for him. you can’t bear the thought of spending a day without the person you love.

  • deb October 9, 2018, 6:08 pm

    you are truly in love with someone if you love all the imperfections of that person. i can say that my man is deeply in love with me because he finds my imperfections as my unique qualities and he loves them. just sharing. :)

  • darcey October 8, 2018, 1:12 pm

    when you finally realize why it didn’t work out with anyone else before them..that’s how you know. being in love and being with the right person gives you that sense of peace and understanding of things.

  • emely October 5, 2018, 6:37 pm

    when you are in love, everything just flows. chemistry is there and there is no need to pretend because you know that he or she will accept you for who you are.

  • moraine October 4, 2018, 7:20 pm

    for me, if a person really inspires me to be the best version of myself..that’s it. if a guy makes you feel good and in return you want to do good, that’s someone is definitely a keeper.

  • debbie October 3, 2018, 5:27 pm

    you can tell if you are in love by paying close attention to yourself, like how you interact with your partner. true love can also be determined if you support your partner’s success genuinely and celebrate his triumphs.

  • milan October 2, 2018, 5:17 pm

    when everything starts to make sense to you about all your failed relationships in the past..the heartbreaks, the sleepless nights and all those times you thought you were happy and in love. you start to think and realize, all those led you to what you have right now and it’s true love.

  • latoya October 1, 2018, 5:07 pm

    some may say a lot of things like they laugh together, they can’t their eyes off of each other and all that superficial stuff..but this for me is the best way to know. when someone inspires you and motivates you to really do good, that’s when you know you are in love.

  • fionah September 27, 2018, 5:32 pm

    love is different from everyone. but one thing i know is for sure, if you feel like you are high, then you are absolutely in love! period!

  • rosario September 26, 2018, 5:34 pm

    true love feels real and effortless. this is true and when you find that one where you don’t need to pretend or impress, hold onto it.

  • cameron September 25, 2018, 5:27 pm

    this post can absolutely help me know for sure that it is love that i am feeling and not anything else. so happy that i found this site.

  • reese September 24, 2018, 7:47 pm

    you just know it when you do. no need to make a list of his good qualities or whatnot, you just feel secure and at ease with him but most importantly, you have fun with him and that he makes you really happy.

  • abigail September 21, 2018, 6:38 pm

    true love is effortless- yes. i totally agree with this one. you never have to try hard because everything you do is appreciated, regardless of how small they are.

  • jennifer September 20, 2018, 4:55 pm

    this is nice! i loved it and i just became more hopeful with love. thanks to you!

  • ebony September 19, 2018, 6:02 pm

    i tried to google “how to know if you are in love” and this showed up. i love this article and i can say it got all that i needed. everything makes sense. thanks!

  • riley September 18, 2018, 2:16 pm

    a few hours definitely feels like minutes when you’re in love. you just want to spend more and more time with the person and you can’t seem to get enough.

  • jaden September 17, 2018, 6:33 pm

    falling in love is really a fascinating experience! especially with the right person who feels the same way for you!

  • kara September 15, 2018, 8:53 am

    i love this post! there’s really so much in this that convinces me of the good about being in love. thanks for this!

  • charlotte September 13, 2018, 1:49 pm

    could it be? i am falling in love? yes! i can tell by these signs! i always daydream about him. wew! i just can’t get him out of my head!

  • shannon September 12, 2018, 3:16 pm

    for me, it’s true when it feels effortless. that’s the most accurate you can get. you won’t need to pretend to be something or someone else. you’re just you.

  • sharon September 10, 2018, 6:54 pm

    this is a good read! and yes i would agree that there are others who have never known the feeling of love. i know some and i will definitely share this article to them so they would have a good idea how to know if they are in love.

  • jane September 7, 2018, 10:27 pm

    a few hours really feels like minutes when you are in love! most of the time, i just want to forget about the time and just spend all days and nights with my man. it really feels wonderful being in love!

  • daisy September 5, 2018, 2:52 pm

    this is exactly what i need to know! i’ve been in love before but i know that this thing called love isn’t the same for everyone. glad you shared this! i really learned a lot!

  • iya September 4, 2018, 1:07 pm

    it may sound corny but they’re really the best part of your day. and if you don’t get to see them or spend time with them, your day just seems incomplete.

  • aimee September 3, 2018, 1:24 pm

    you just can’t imagine life without them. you will feel incomplete and it makes you feel really sad just thinking about it. when you’re in love, you want to be with the person and make sure he feels the same way about you.
