You know those feelings you get once you begin to fall for someone new? The butterflies and constant desire to wanna chat or text them that goes with buying a completely new wardrobe just to impress them. When you initially begin to fall for someone the feelings can get really intense and there’s a sense of excitement that’s hard to describe with words. That’s partly why it can be so difficult to distinguish between love and like, or even infatuation. True love feels like knowing that your partner will make space to sit and listen at any time. It means always putting that special someone before you. You care for them more than practically anyone else in this world. Do you feel that way about someone? Are you sure it’s true love? Thankfully, there are some clear signs you can watch out for to know that you’re in the best relationship of your life and not just going through some temporary phase with a new boyfriend or girlfriend. Continue reading to learn some of the signs that you’re falling in love.
- You’re happy and a little bit nervous – People in love tend to be genuinely happier. Call it a natural high if you will. The thought of spending some time as a couple really excites you and even doing simple things like looking at selfies of you both together on your phone is enough to put a cheesy little smile on your face. However, if it’s true love you should also find yourself being a little bit nervous. You’ll be anxious about what the future holds, even if you’re not sure exactly what that is. The one thing you do know is that you want your relationship to be a successful one and last forever. Several people compare love to something they could not lose or let pass them by, yet the uncertainty of its unknown outcome is exciting.
- The relationship feels easy – Being with your partner shouldn’t feel like a job. You shouldn’t need to struggle to find time to spend with them because you should want to spend as much time with them as possible. Even the arguments won’t feel as intense as they do in other relationships you have. While it’s true that every couple argues and bickers, when you’re both in love the priority will be your relationship and not your pride. When it’s true love you won’t be worried about the first person to give in or lose the argument because you can’t imagine your life without them. Even one day apart can feel like forever.
- They’re always on your mind – If it’s true love then your partner will always be in the back of your mind. You might have a sudden urge to call them because you haven’t chatted in a few hours and want to know that they’re okay. Love is determined. When you like someone, it’s easy to just brush it off and think of other things as you go about your day. But when you’re in love, this person is always on your mind, and it isn’t overwhelming.
- You bring them around friends and family – When you’re really into your relationship, you will want to bring your partner into all of the different aspects of your life. You’ll want to introduce them to your family and friends with hopes they all like each other because you’ll be hurt if they don’t. If you’re introducing your partner to friends and family, it’s usually because you really care about this person and want your relationship to last.
