They always say that will know when you fall in love. As if it cupid knocks on your door and says “This is it!” In my experience that is not always the way that it happens. Some of us are not experts in subtly, if this is the case for you I have the answer. If you are feeling stuck in a limbo state of being with your relationship, these five signs may bring some clarity.
When you think of your future, your partner is there. While you maintain your autonomy, you have become attached. Your partner is now present in your decision making. This sign indicates that your relationship has reached the in love place.
While you were still active in the dating scene monogamy was a myth. There was no way you were settling down for anyone. Somewhere along the way this person changed your mind. This change of pace fuels your willingness to believe it is love.
As you are attached and monogamous, respect is an active part of your relationship. If you respect your partner, there is an aspect of love involved.
In most meaningless relations, there is no exchange. You get what came for, and you leave. Although with this person, you are willing to give and take. This exchange speaks volumes about the depth of your feelings.
Without this key component love is not present. Trust in its essence is simply radical faith that the risk of being vulnerable is worth it. We as humans do not trust just anyone. It is an earned gift in which we express the deepest form of love by investing of ourselves. If you can check yes, to all these signs then you friend are in love!
