The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough of is love.” We all look for love, we all want to be in love or be loved by someone. We are exposed to love the moment we are born and as we grow, our definition and need for love also change. However, here we are talking about romantic love and the emotions that drive two persons to be united and spend a lifetime of togetherness. While we have many textbook definitions of love, but how do we know that we are in love with someone? Let’s look at a few telltale signs of falling in love.
When you are in love with someone, you tend to stress over anything that may be related to that person. According to experts, feeling stressed is quite expected because when a person is in love, the brain often releases the stress hormone called cortisol, which can make the person feel the heat more.
When a person takes time to decide if they love someone or not, this can actually be a good sign because according to experts, it’s easy to come to a conclusion when they do not love a person but before saying ‘yes’ to anyone’s proposal, you would think twice because you want to take things slowly and know the person better.
Becoming a Giver and Not a Receiver
When you love someone, you think about his or her interest more than yours. If you are making love, you would concentrate on your partner’s pleasure, if you are cooking something you will choose the ingredients that he or she likes and if you are picking a dress for yourself, you will picture how your partner would react seeing you wearing it. Basically, you become a giver rather than a seeker when you are in love with a person.
Imagining a Future
Often people tend to visualize the things they want in life, right. If they can picture the person in their dreams about the future like staying together, going on vacations and getting married, take this as a sign that they are in love with that person.
Besides the above-mentioned signs, there are other classic signs, which one should not ignore. If someone is always on their mind and cannot get enough of him or her, be in no doubt that you are in love. Yes, it’s true that when you are in love with someone, you will want to do anything to impress the person, his or her imperfections do not matter, you want to be around that person or the mere thought of that someone special makes you smile.
