When you’ve been dating someone for a while, how can you tell if that person is truly into you, or if they’re just playing you until someone better comes along? While passionate flings are what sells books and movies, in real life, the truth about love is that it is, in one single word, boring. Genuine romance is an incredibly convoluted thing and often times individuals will think they’ve discovered it when they really haven’t. Think you might fall into that category? Well, thankfully there are several different signs that you’re in the best relationship of your life. That’s because we do feel differently when we’re in love. Not just that honeymoon phase love, but true love! There are a things you experience and feel when you’re in true love that you simply don’t get in other types of connections. I’m not just talking about being able to put up with each other and grow as time goes on, either. Continue reading and learn how to know when it’s true love.
You keep promises – When you make a promise to your partner, you stick to your word. That means even if you’re certain this person would never find out if you were to brake that promise. When you experience true love, your moral conscience becomes very strong when it comes to that one special person and breaking a promise is something you won’t be doing very often.
You share their burden – This is something you should want to do with your partner even if you don’t really have to. You can’t bear to see the love of your life suffering when you’re truly in love. If they’re dealing with some issue (big or small), you’re always willing to offer them a helping hand even when you have your own difficulties to look into.
You consider their perspective – With everything you do, you keep your lover in mind and always try to think from their perspective. Whether it’s about planning a surprise party or hanging out with your own friends for a little while after work. You don’t ever want to hurt your partner, so you always think from their point of view before making any decision that involves them in any way.
Pride and jealousy – You should beam with pride when your partner achieves something, even if it’s the exact same thing you failed at. It’s not uncommon for us to get a little jealous when a friend outdid us at something, but when you truly love someone, jealousy never enters the picture!
Remember, true love between a couple should come naturally. There are certain signs that you are forcing yourself to love someone and trust me, you will never feel that way when it’s true love. I sincerely hope that every couple out there can be fortunate enough to discover what true love really feels like with their partner. Cherish the love you receive and always reciprocate so that special someone in your life can feel the same way. If you haven’t found true love yet, don’t give up hope. It’s out there and will likely find you whenever you least expect it!
