How do you know you love someone?

01 /8 Am I in love?

Henry Miller, the famous American author, had once said, “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? Is it science or is It pure emotions? Let’s look at a few tell tale signs (some are even approved by science!) of falling in love.

02 /8 You are high on emotions

We all know what falling head over heels in love with someone means. In fact, this can be literally true. You feel like you are high when you are in love and as per a study conducted by researchers at Kinsey Institute, the brain of a person who has taken cocaine looks same as the brain of a person who is in love.

03 /8 You are stressed

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.

04 /8 When you take time to decide

When you take time to decide if you love someone or not, this can actually be a good sign because according to experts, it’s easy to come to a conclusion when you 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.

05 /8 You become a giver; not a seeker

According to experts, 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.

06 /8 You dream of a future together

What do you see when you dream about your future? You visualise the things you want in life, right. If you can picture him or her in your dreams about the future like staying together, going on vacations and getting married, take this as a sign that you are in love with that person.

07 /8 You are willing to take responsibilities

With great power comes great responsibilities.

And there is nothing greater than the power of love and this makes you ready for any kind of responsibilities. So, if you feel that you are ready for some new roles and duties concerning a certain person, there are chances that you Are truly and genuinely in love.

08 /8 Other classic signs

Besides the above-mentioned signs, there are other classic signs, which you should not ignore.

If someone is always on your mind or you 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. That’s love, my friend!
