Love. The world revolves around it, and everything from movies to music express the meaning of it. But, how can you be sure that you have found love in your life? From not being able to get them off your mind, to planning your walk down the isle, these are 10 signs you are in love!
Yes it’s true that some people call the feeling in their tummy they get from falling in love “butterflies”, but let’s be honest. It actually feels like a bit of anxiety. It’s the anxious feeling you get when they message you or when you are around them. You want to make sure you look your best, and you don’t do anything stupid. When you are first falling in love, your appetite might shrink from the anxiety you have from wanting to make a good impression. The good news is once you start to get comfortable with them, your appetite will slowly come back!
If you find yourself checking your phone every 10 seconds hoping to have some sort of communication from them, then you have caught the love bug! When you are apart, all you want to do is know what they are doing, or if they are thinking about you. Getting that little “Hi, how are you?” or “Thinking about you.” text is enough to give you butterflies! You also constantly check your service and make sure your ringer is on, because you don’t want them to think you are ignoring them if you miss a message.
Whether you are busy at work, or just relaxing, you find yourself thinking about them non-stop. It gets to the point that you feel like you might have ADD because thoughts of them are so distracting. What are they doing? Will they call? Are they coming over later? You can’t go 5 minutes without them popping into your brain for no reason. What makes it even more distracting is that everything from a meme to someone waiting at a bus stop will remind you of them.
That person you were hung up on for months suddenly starts to look like a jerk. All the things you thought you liked about your ex actually make you dislike them. You probably ask yourself if you were drunk throughout the whole relationship. After a while, you don’t even think about them at all. How could you when you are too busy thinking about the person you are in love with?
If you lie awake at night planning your future, and they are a major part of it, then there is a pretty good chance this is the real deal. When couples start thinking about their future together, whether it’s a vacation or a stroll down the isle, it means they are in it for the long haul. Most of the time, men and women don’t want to waste their time with people they don’t see a future with. So, if you look into your future and you can’t picture it without your significant other, than it’s a clear sign you are in love.
When two people are in love, they have to work at it. People may think that love is easy, but a lot of the time it doesn’t come without the couple bending for one another. Things you may have thought you would never do, you end up doing for them. This is called compromising, and when you are in love, it’s not even an issue. You find that you have suddenly started caring about the other person’s wants or needs before your own.
After spending time together as a couple, you have become so close that you know what exactly what they are thinking at any given moment. Whether they are asking you where something is, or what they will order when you go out for dinner, you know it all. This is because when you were first falling in love, you paid attention to their likes, and have made little notes inside your head over time. You can predict what they need before they ask for it, and sometimes you can even finish their sentences.
