How to Know That You’re in Love

How to know that you’re in love

So, you think you’re in love, but how to be sure? Maybe you’ve never been in love before and this new feeling you get within yourself is unfamiliar. Where do you place these new emotions? Are they just a ‘strong like’ or could this be love?

Here are some signs to look out for in yourself to know when you’re in love.

Daydreaming

You find your mind drifting off into mid-air while imagining moments with this person. You imagine romantic moments next to a river or under the sunset. When you snap out of your daydream you catch yourself smiling happily.

Thinking about them

You think about them constantly. You wonder about the things they like and what they like to do. Thinking about moments between you two, re-living every happy moment as you hope that you will be able to experience them again.

You check your phone

When you are in love all you want to do is to feel connected to that person. You are regularly checking your phone for new messages and can’t help but jump with excitement when their name pops up on your screen. You over think every single word that they’ve said and really consider what to reply, as not to sound stupid or needy.

To you, they are perfect

You don’t see all the gross things they do. Whether it’s picking their nose or making snorting noises while eating, you think that they are absolutely perfect from head to toe. The expression “love is blind” is true for a reason.

Your heart races and you feel daring

Love gives us an adrenaline rush, when you are in love it’s like nothing else matters on earth. You want to try new things, like jumping off a cliff or going on the world’s scariest roller coaster (as long as it’s them by your side, of course).

You become super corny

Things that would normally make you cringe or roll your eyes to, are now, the things that you do when you’re around this person. The cringy pick-up lines and corniest lovey-dovey sentences are part of your vocabulary and you don’t care at all.

You want only the best for them

Love truly is a sharing emotion, when you’re in love you want the best for the other person. Feeling truly happy and proud when they achieve something great or being happy for them when they receive great news is a big tell-tale of your feelings for them.

Love can be a beautiful thing. Embrace what you’re feeling and have the courage to act upon it! Give your love to someone deserving and enjoy every moment of it.

If you want to know what your heart truly wants, just go on GoMarry.com, the world's first Marriage Only Relationships website, to find the perfect partner with whom you can spend your whole life.

      Rocket Rod,

      Sounds like you're moving way too fast!

      You just met this woman {last month} presumably online and she's already preparing to pack up herself and son to move long distance to be with you. Essentially she's a stranger.

      Being infatuated with someone during the first few weeks of a new relationship is normal. However any experienced dater should know one shouldn't make any major life changing decisions so quickly. It takes time to truly get to know someone.

      My advice would be to date each other for a year or so and get to know each other real well. (Spend some actual time together.)

      One month of "talking" isn't enough time to know if she's the one.

      What you describe as being "in love" sounds like infatuation.

      Anyone who has been in a long-term relationship or marriage will attest to the fact at some point your heart will stop racing.

      Your relationship ceases to be the center of your universe.

      Naturally it is very important but there are other aspects of life such as career, friendships, family, hobbies and interests which rounds out our existence.

      The "cocoon style of love" is for teenagers and novice daters.

      Falling in love or the "infatuation phase" of a new relationship usually takes place before people reveal their "authentic selves".

      During the "infatuation phase" both people bend over backwards to impress each other. Everything you want to do they want to do and vice versa. The word "no" is seldom if ever used.

      Cards and token gifts are given "just because" and each person makes the other's happiness their top priority. Plans for the future are often discussed. Sex is spontaneous and off the charts!

      To the novice or inexperienced dater it's easy to believe they have found their "soulmate". However they don't really know them yet!

      It's only after having some major disagreements and discovering each other's boundaries and deal breakers that we are in a position to determine if a relationship has the potential to last long-term. You can't truly love someone until you {know} them.

      With age and life experience comes wisdom and maturity.

      A person comes to understand with most new relationships there is an "infatuation phase" and they learn to enjoy it for what it is while being cognizant they are still in the infancy stage of the relationship.

      It's easy to love someone you don't really know. We are all on our best behavior as long as we don't have to be with someone 24/7. If you lived with him day in and day out, you would get to see ALL of him and then you could say that you can love. We are all a combination of both positive and negative qualities. Everyone. No exceptions. I put myself through this (a married man) not once but twice and I am now 66. It was all a psychological projection (C.G. Jung) on my part. I did not know these 2 men really. Took me years to see this and was able to really get to know one of them later. Best wishes though!

      After breaking up with the father of in 2017 I told myself that I would never date again because of the pain and hurt that I went through, and then this year I met a married man and he changed all of that with his love, I know that it's wrong to date a married man but this man makes me happy in all angles, he's funny, caring, loving and he's always there whenever I need him and the sex is out of this world, I really don't know if it's love or 'strong like' please help
