Being in love is something many of us long for. We spend or lives hoping for the day when we will meet the right person and fall in love. We dream of how happy we will be together and all of the wonderful experiences we will have. Then we grow up and we find out that it really isn’t as easy as we had believed. We find that we sometimes don’t know if we are in love with someone. It would seem that this thing that comes naturally would be less complicated and that it would be much easier for us to understand. It becomes confusing and sometimes people just give up on it.
People often confuse lust for love, or obsession for love. There are even those who want love so bad that they can convince themselves that they love anyone, just so they do not have to face being alone. How can you tell if you are experiencing one of these or if you are truly in love? When you are in love you may find that you think about the person often. You will find yourself daydreaming about the person or feeling excited that you are going to see them. You may also experience this if you just want to be with someone no matter who they are.
If you talk about this person often there is a high chance that you are in love. If you are so smitten that you are telling all of your friends and family about this person that is a good sign that you are in love. Then again, it could just mean that you don’t want to be alone and you are happy to have someone in your life.
Do you ever get upset just because your partner is upset? This is a big sign that you are in love. When we are upset because bad things have happened to those around us it means that we care for them a lot. Now you should ask yourself if you are upset because they are not happy or if you are upset because them being upset is affecting your life somehow.
Knowing if you are in love is something that takes a lot of self-searching, you may think that you are in love with someone but when you really think about it you realize you are just in love with the idea of having someone there.
You can tell that you are in love if you know with no doubt that this is the person you want to be with. You know that you will never be able to replace them in your heart or in your life. On the other hand if you are just lusting after someone, you will lust after many people. Having a physical attraction does not equal love. If you find that you just want to be with someone, it is time to do some work on yourself because as long as you are feeling like that you will never know what love is.
