4 signs that you are truly in LOVE
1. YOU'RE ON TEAM "RELATIONSHIP": One sure sign that you are in love is when you care more about the relationship winning than you winning. In times of conflict, do you work towards the greater good of the relationship rather than simply your own agenda? A willingness to compromise, apologize and admit when you are wrong are good indicators that you are truly in love.
2. THEIR PRESENCE IS EVERYTHING: Do you value time time spent with your partner over almost anything else? Do you notice yourself enjoying experiences, but thinking you would enjoy them even more if your partner was present? Do you feel that your partner adds a special element to your life and things just aren't the same when they aren't there? If you answered yes to these questions, chances are you are truly in love. 3. YOU TOLERATE THINGS: Do you tolerate spending time with your partner's friends or family even if they aren't your cup of tea? Do you participate in activities that your partner finds highly enjoyable, but you don't. Tolerating people or experiences in order to spend more time with your partner or just to see them happy and content is a sign of true love. 4. THEY'RE ALWAYS ON YOUR MIND: Do you do what you can to make your partner's life easier without being asked? Are they on your mind so often that you automatically factor their happiness into your decisions and daily activities? A person who is truly in love will go out of their way to support their partner in both large and small ways that may make life just a little bit easier. Little gestures of thoughtfulness and caring (even subconsciously) are a good indication of true love!
