6 Subtle Signs That *Prove* You Are In Love
Being in love feels different for everyone. Some have been in love often and know the feeling well, and others may be not so sure if it’s love or just a deep infatuation. It’s special and unique to each person—as the time it takes to fall in love with someone is different for everyone.
Maybe you believe in love at sight, or perhaps you’re a bit of a skeptic and need more time to develop feelings. As cliché as it sounds, most of the time, when you know, you know
Maybe you believe in love at sight, or perhaps you’re a bit of a skeptic and need more time to develop feelings. As cliché as it sounds, most of the time, when you know, you know. However you may be, here are some not-so-obvious signs you may have been struck by Cupid’s arrow:
1. They’re On Your Mind. All. The. Time
When you’re in love, this person is always on your mind, but it isn’t overwhelming. When you love someone, you are physically, mentally and emotionally impacted theoretically all the time. It is a calm and secure reality you will consistently crave. Awww.
2. Everything Reminds You Of Them
Wearing black outfits? Oh, that’s their fav colour! Eminem is on the radio? Hey, he loves Eminem! Ordering cheeseburger as your lunch? Wait, that’s their go-to, McDonalds’ order. Whatever you do, your partner is always in the back of your mind.
3. You Can’t Stop Staring At Them
If you can hold someone’s gaze for at least four seconds, that eye contact can communicate to another person a message of love. Mmmhmm. Eye contact means that you’re fixated on something, so if you find that your eyes are fixed on your partner, you may just be falling in love.
4. When You’re No Longer Thinking About Your Past Partner
You can’t remember the last time you thought about your former fling who “broke your heart.” Things with your person now are so good, you can’t be bothered with whatever’s in the past. Once you are in love, you lose interest in everyone else. Your partner is truly the only one you have eyes for.
5. You Get A Little Jealous
Not all jealousy is bad—a little bit of jealousy is natural. It’s understandable because you want your partner to be only exclusive to you. But a jealousy becomes dangerous when you start obsessing over what your partner’s doing. Ie: checking your boo’s text messages, and what they do behind your back is just straight up toxic.
6. You Feel Safe & Comfortable Around Them
The best indicator of whether you are in love with someone is the degree to which you can be vulnerable with them. (You feel safe and comfortable when you’re around them). Like nothing bad can happen. You’re comfortable enough around them to make bad jokes and be your fully weird self. It’s hard to describe this feeling, but it really is the best thing in the world.
