Some people were absolutely certain they were in love the moment they laid eyes on each other. For others, love started out as friendship and for many, love needed time to take root.
If you’re not thunderstruck, how do you know if you’re in love? There are a few hallmarks.
The first is that it’s not a choice. You can’t walk away when things are tough.
Being in love means that, above all, you want them to have a balanced and satisfying life, even if they aren’t around you all the time.
The experience of being in love feels like a steady stream of joy without the wild ride.
It’s more about how you make them feel than how they make you feel.
It’s always about partnership and never about ownership. Being in love should be effortless.
Staying connected and keeping that spark alive shouldn’t be work. It just comes naturally.
Does your relationship pass the test? If not, think again.
