How can you tell if what you’re experiencing is true love or just a fleeting lust or infatuation with someone? Here are 5 signs to look for:
1# You care about them unconditionally and love them for who they are
When you find true love, there are no stipulations or strings attached. You love your partner for who they are, even when they’re moody and not at their best.
You have no desire to change them. You’re proud of who they are and never worry about introducing them to your family and friends.
You don’t compare them to others and wish they were more like someone else. You love them warts and all.
2# You’re not afraid to truly be yourself
When you find true love you’ll be willing to share yourself fully and completely with your partner. You won’t have to worry about trying to impress or win them over.
You’ll be able to simply be yourself without over-thinking your every word and move.
You’ll have someone to share all your funny little thoughts and ideas with, your dreams and goals.
3# When they’re happy, you’re happy
Their happiness and well-being is just as important to you as your own.
Importantly, though, you do not depend on each other to be happy
4# You’re willing to make sacrifices for each other.
You do not trade in all your dreams for this person, but are happy to make small sacrifices for them.
Maybe this means ordering a veggie pizza because they don’t eat meat, or perhaps it means hanging out with one of their friends who you don’t particularly like. You do so because it’s important to them.
If you’re willing to do things for each other that you wouldn’t normally do otherwise, that’s a sign that you’ve found true love.
5# You’re a team
Your partner cheers you up, loves you and is your best friend. You can say anything to them, knowing you will not be judged.
Your future plans will involve each other and you’ll consider each other’s wants and needs as well as your own.
That’s what true love is all about, so once you find it, hold onto it and embrace it. It’s rarer than most of us tend to realise.
