It is much more than initial stage of romance and late night texts. Read on to find out if you really are in a truly, madly, deeply, emotionally charged relationship with that person you can't stop thinking about.
When you're in love for real, you are kind and considerate to them. Even if things they said are hurting, you simply cannot bring yourself to be being mean and revengeful. You will not consider them to be a dumping ground for your frustrations. Save the best behaviour for your lover!
It is sort of a love sickness in the sense that we can't sleep or eat anything and lose track of time when you are talking endlessly over the phone or spend time together.
Almost every time they will be in need, you will be there by their side. Picking or dropping them late at night after work or getting them medicines when they are sick. Sorry to break the news... but you're falling in love.
This is especially true for men for they will make every effort to make you smile. When you really love someone, their happiness is your happiness no matter what it takes. Let it be ice-cream craving at midnight...they'll be always there to say, "yes, Maa'm!".
Guys tend to start noticing everything about girls once they start to develop feelings for her. Like how gorgeous you look in that green dress. His eyes light up as soon as you walk into the room. He has eyes ONLY for you!
He gives you priority and puts you in the fore front of his life. He might leave a boys day out to spend an entire day with you. That says a lot about your importance in his life.
For real, your happiness, your smile, is everything for him. You are his entire life, and every other thing is secondary.
All the other girls he has been previously attracted to fade into oblivion. He thinks you look the best without any makeup, especially on mornings with your unkempt hair all over. He likes that version of you, and he appreciates when you go an extra mile to look hot for date night!
Even if things are going south and seem somewhat messed up, you both can't seem to stay angry with each other for a long time. Either of you says sorry and things start working around.
True love is total acceptance. There is no "perfect mate" in life. You can love them even when they are at their worst phase.
EGO is the biggest enemy of a happy and healthy relationship. Save that for the big bad world outside. It wants to hold on to every little injustice done in the past, but lasting love requires burying the hatchet daily. Nobody makes it through a marriage without forgiving each other.
Genuinely enjoy each other's company. Enjoy the little things, laugh to reduce tension, laugh to end a conflict. Laugh out loud every day!
As my husband says, "always try to sort the issues, no person is bad; it is the situation which makes a person react in a way that they do." Put yourself in their shoes and respond with empathy and grace.
LOVE makes our world go round! Nurture it and preserve it. Get away from if it is toxic and you are unhappy most of the time. Sending out oodles of love out to this universe. The world needs more of that.
