Whether we like it or not, there will come a time that your heart will start beating a bit faster and butterflies will set up camp in your stomach. Even if you’ve sworn off all of sappy romantic crap, you can be held powerless when a special person comes into your life. Whether confused, inspired or miffed about these foreign feelings, you ought to label what you’re really going through. Is it a simple admiration? A harmless crush? Or have you really fallen hard? Read on to know more.
1. If he/she is always on your mind
How to know if you’re in love? That’s easy. Is that special someone always on your mind? You may not do it intentionally, but somehow, somewhat, at any random time of the day; he or she will suddenly pop in your mind, at times for no reason. Not a day goes by that he or she doesn’t cross your mind, and it seems that he or she is all you think about. You close your eyes; you see his or her face. You hear a song on the radio; it suddenly makes you remember him or her. The worse thing is, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to shake the person out of your head.
2. If all the songs make sense
You’re clearly in love if every song makes sense, even if it’s not exactly portraying what you’re going through. For some reason, when you turn on the radio lately you’d just go, “this song is totally about me.”
3. If you want to know everything about him/her
This one draws the line between a simple crush or infatuation and actually falling in love. When you want to know everything—not just his or her likes, dislikes, favorites and hobbies, but his or her hopes, dreams, what makes him laugh, what makes him cry, what drives his soul, and what is the story behind his eyes—then you clearly have such strong feelings toward the person. This also confirms that you’re not simply attracted, because you’re past the outside beauty and you’re so much curious into what makes him a person.
4. If you miss him/her when he/she is not around
Sometimes, your heart just flutters constantly because you see the person constantly. But if that person is not around and you long for his or her presence even more? My, my have you fallen hard.
5. If you tend to ignore their flaws
Everyone has good and bad in them. But if you notice that lately, you tend to ignore the person’s flaws and focus more on their good points, then you must be in love. They say that when a person is in love, their person of interest becomes sheer perfection in their eyes—even if the flaws are so obvious and annoying.
6. If you suddenly have no interest in anyone else
7. If you somehow imagine a future with him/her
You’ve certainly have fallen hard if you have this desire deep within you to spend the rest of your life with that person—and that person only. If you so much as imagine a future, with a nice house and kids… then there’s your clear sign. You, my friend, are in love.
