10 Tips On How To Know If You Are Really In Love Or Not
Love is one of the most exciting feelings in the world. But how do we know if we’re in love, or if we’re just temporarily infatuated? Moreover, what’s the difference between love and lust? In this article, Beauty and Tips offers you 10 tips on how to know if you really are in love or not.
When you were younger, you probably dreamed about what it would be like to fall in love with a man. Your heart fluttered, you occasionally lost your breath, and you couldn’t stop smiling. It was an amazing feeling.
Being in love is an amazing feeling. It’s a feeling that’s beyond description. Its exciting beyond belief – but it’s also scary and nerve-wracking.
If you think you might be in love for the first time and can’t work out your feelings, here are 10 tips to help you decide.
The Best Part Of Your Day Is Seeing Them
All of a sudden, totally out of the blue, the man in your life is now the best part of your day.
You can’t even remember what used to be the best part of your day!
“Catching up on Netflix? Was that really the best part of my day?!”
If things have gotten to the point where you spend the day looking forward to seeing him again, it’s a pretty strong sign that you’ve fallen in love.
Believe us, it takes someone special to make us look forward to seeing them so much.
You Really Miss Him
You for real miss him.
Like, not even just a tiny bit. Like, if you don’t see him soon you could literally break down in tears.
When you’re alone, it’s always much worse. And even when you’re out and about with your friend you wish he was there with you instead. You stare menacingly at your friend with a sort of “Why can’t you be him??!” expression.
He’s your favourite person now. It must be love.
You’re Comfortable Enough To Be Yourself
Remember when you two first started dating? There were certain rules of etiquette that you had to abide by. You didn’t like restaurant he took you to, but you put up with it because it was his fav place. You didn’t want to ply yourself with makeup when he popped over for five minutes, but you did so because you didn’t want him to see you natural.
Now that you’re falling in love with him, you’re so comfortable that you no longer care about these hangups. Who cares if it’s his fav place to eat?
“It totally sucks!”
“But it’s okay to tell you that because I love you.”
And who cares if he sees you without makeup or in your slacks? You’re so comfortable around him that you can be yourself.
You Think About Them First
Do you wake up in the morning and think about them before anyone (or anything) else?
Are they always the first person on your mind when you decide what your plans are for the day?
Once a person has positioned themselves at the top of the queue in our minds, it’s a strong sign that we have strong feelings for them.
Imagine if someone said to you that you’re the first person they think of when they wake up each day? It means one thing – they’ve totally fallen for you!
You Want To Make Him A Playlist
Let’s face it, the only people we ever make a playlist for are pen-pals are the people we’re in love with. If you want him to hear the music you love to bits, it’s a sign that you love him to bits, too.
Careful, though. Handing him a playlist is just like telling him you love him.
You Want The Whole World To Know About Him
You just want to shout from the rooftops that he’s amazing and you can’t believe he’s in your life. You want everyone to know about him. You love the way he thinks, the way he acts, his smile, his laugh … you love it all and wish everyone could appreciate him the way you do.
You’re In Love With His Family
You literally love his family, from his adorable niece (who is also now your niece) to his beloved, weird grandmother who says the most inappropriate things.
You even think his dad is charming, and love his quirks, such as the way he burps randomly at the dinner table. If you didn’t love your man, those burps would really be an issue!
You love his family and want to get to know them. You also want your man to get to know your family.
You Put Them First
We put family and close friends first. Even if we’re busy and can’t really afford to give up any of our time, we give it up if a family member or a close friend needs our help. They become our number on priority.
If the guy in your life is your number one priority regardless of how busy you are or not, it could be a sign that you’re in love with him.
Let’s see the weekend is coming up. You don’t want to make too many plans just in case he calls you up.
Or let’s say you’ve made plans and he calls you up. If you’re prepared to actually break plans with other people and see him instead, it might mean you love him.
That’s definitely what your friends who you have to let down by cancelling will be thinking!
You No Longer Need To Text All The Time
When we first start dating someone we really like, there’s a compulsion to text all the time. We can come across as a bit needy or even despite.
Now, though, you’re relaxed about texting. You don’t need to hear from them every single minute. You’ve got their voice inside your head, and you know you’ll see them again soon.
Nothing He Does Grosses You Out
He could pour ketchup all over his face in the restaurant and it wouldn’t gross you out.
He could go three days without showering and it wouldn’t gross you out.
(Eew by the way).
What would gross you out? Nothing!
