Love can be a difficult thing to figure out, especially for those that have little or no experience with serious relationships. Am I really in love? That’s the question a lot of people ask themselves when they become involved in a romantic relationship. Some people say the answer to that important question is: You will know it.
(1) Your priorities align
It’s not uncommon for people in love to become very involved in activities and interests of their partner. You might find yourself developing an interest in something that you’ve never even given a second thought to in your life, but because it is something that interests your partner, it is now becoming interesting to you.
(2) You want to introduce them to everyone
When you are truly in love you have zero reservations when it comes to introducing that special person to everyone you know. You are proud and happy to show them off to all your friends and relatives and you just know they will all approve.
(3) You are trying to be a better person
Falling in love can be a real wake-up call. When you find yourself examining your own actions and deciding that you need to be a better person because of your partner, you have probably found true love. Someone you really love will tend to bring the best out in you even if you cannot understand why.
(4) You easily imagine a future with them
Finding that person you truly love can change your vision of the future. You may envision of buying a home with this person and having children with them. Picturing your life with this special person 30, 40 or even 60 years in the future is a sure sign that you have truly found “the one.”
(5) You always want to be with them
When true love comes along, some of your other relationships often take a hit. When you make plans, you want all of them to include your partner and you have a hard time with the idea of doing anything without them.
