There may come a time in your life where you meet a special someone and have a nice relationship for a while. After a certain amount of time, however, your affections start to fade and you find yourself realizing that perhaps it wasn’t true love after all.
Many people ask themselves what true love actually is. There is something unique about true love as opposed to merely having feelings for someone. Here are some of the signs that you have found true love.
You Don’t Try To “Escape” Reality
Often as we go through life and have things like jobs to go to, or bills to pay, or work to do, we seek out behaviors that give us a way to “escape.” This can be anything from drinking heavily to zoning out on the tv.
You will find that when you are truly in love you will find reality much better than escape. The less you’ll want to waste time trying to distract your mind and the more time you’ll want to spend with the person that has stolen your heart.
You Are Happy Most Of The Time
When you are in love you will find that you have a little extra bounce in your step and smile on your face. Love makes us excited and optimistic about the world around us. Rather than being easily flustered by things or irritable throughout the day, people who are in love are usually a lot more laid back and happy.
When you are in love, you have hormones flowing through your body and a general excitement for life that just isn’t the same before you’ve found your counterpart.
You Are Best Friends
You will know that you are truly in love with someone and have found your match when you realize that you not only have found a lover but a best friend. The secret to making love last is being able to not only see each other as a romantic partner but also as someone that you genuinely enjoy as a friend.
Imagine being able to hang out with your best friend in the world for the rest of your life, plus with the extra perks of finding them attractive. What more could you ask from true love?
Your Fights End Quickly
When you find your true love you will find that you are still going to fight from time to time. If you don’t disagree with your partner ever, this means that one of you must be hiding their emotions. It is impossible for two humans never to disagree on anything. However, it is not impossible to quickly remedy disagreements.
Someone that you truly love will usually make the effort along with you to quickly reach a resolution. After all, the goal is to enjoy each other, not battle each other.
