Want to know what love is? Here is what we think it really means to be in love
“What is love” it’s not just the lyrics from that amazing song. Many people who have never been in love often ask themselves this question.
Falling in love is easy right? You just know that the other person is the right one for you and you instantly start to feel that famous in love glow. Whilst this may be true for some people, for others love isn’t quite that easy. In fact, it can be a really hard thing to understand or even know is happening to you.
So, to help you to figure out what love is, we have put together our guide to the things that might be a giveaway that you don’t just like someone that you really like them.
When you simply cannot think about being with someone else
Met someone new? Wondering whether or not they are actually the right person for you? If you are feeling that there could be something better out there, then chances are that you are not with the right person. When you meet someone who you love, then you know that there really is nobody out there who you would rather spend your life with.
You are happy to express how you feel
It can be hard to express our feelings, however, if you meet someone who you really have strong feelings for, then you are going to feel ready to tell them. You will want to make sure that you don’t scare them away, but if you don’t tell them how much they mean to you, then how will you ever know how much you mean to them?
They make you happy
Of course, love isn’t wonderful 100% of the time and even someone who you care deeply for can annoy you from time to time. But when you love someone the good always outweighs the bad. If they make you happy, if they make you smile and they make you feel great about yourself. Then you can be sure that they are definitely the right person for you and there are no two ways about it.
Sparks will fly
Sex isn’t the be-all and end-all of a relationship, but it is a hugely important part of it! When you meet someone new there is always going to be a spark between you, but when you love someone that spark shouldn’t ever really fade. Sure, it is going to be harder to have time for sex as you get older and you have children, but you should always feel that sex is on the cards with someone that you love.
As you can see, there are plenty of things to look out for when it comes to knowing whether or not you are in love with someone you care for. The best thing to do is to just let things happen, don’t try to over analyse things, just let them move along as naturally as possible and before long you will be deep in love with someone who you want to spend the rest of your life with.
