Love… Am I in love? Is this true love? Is it just an attraction or I really love him?
Are these questions striking in your mind when you see someone and enjoy his or her company? If yes this article is for you.
Some people say love is a beautiful experience which you can’t express in words or you can not explain. Yes, this is true but what are the signs which can tell you that is this a temporary affection or a true love.
“True love happens once in a lifetime”. Well, I do not agree with this. You can experience love many times over, and with many people at the same time. Like, we can experience true love with our spouse or our lover, your children and any other person you’re attached to in your life.
It could happen any time maybe you fall in love 10 years ago and you still remember you spent with but now they are not in your life. But now you find someone else who makes you smile and treats you better and you feel good with them and it is good because life goes on so you can’t be stuck in one place. Love could be within friends.
There is also a difference between true love and romantic love. Most of the time we associate true love with romantic love but they are not the same. True love is love in its purest form and on the other hand, romantic love needs more physical attraction to stay alive.
Check out the 10 signs of true love in a relationship
It’s not easy to define “True love”, but there are always some signs to read true in every perfect loving relationship. If you’re in a relationship or feeling for someone and want to know whatever you’re experiencing is the purest form of love or not, use the following signs to find out for yourself.
True love is always selfless. When you give your relationship a complete sincerity and commitment without any self-interest, desire or expectation of getting something back in return from your partner this is called true love. The only thing you selfish for the smile on their face.
If watching him smile or laugh out loud makes you forget all your worries when you were going through a hard day. That means you are in love.
If you are feeling that you get hurt when your special person upsets but their action never angers you. Or you may get annoyed when he is enjoying someone else company more than yours which might be temporary or you feel jealous of him or her. Oh yes, all these are the signs of true love.
Also, you cant live without talking to him or her for long because staying mad or giving them the silent treatment hurts you more.
“Love is not just a feeling, it’s commitment and above all a sacrifice”. That means when you are willing to compromise and make sacrifices for someone, that’s where you feel true love.
No matter what’s going on in your life, when you feel the other sadness, problems and make an effort to sort out your issues and to improve your relationship and always try to please and make them feel special and loved.
6. No Revenge Feelings
When we are in love with someone, thought of hurting your love emotionally or physically intentionally never comes in our mind. When we love someone truly we can’t hurt them even they are not feeling the same we feel for them because when there is love in our heart there will be no space for anger and or revenge.
7. Keeping Promises
This is a big sign of true love, when we experience true love our moral conscience becomes very strong when it comes to this one special one. And here when we make a promise to that person we always stick to our word even when we know that this person will never find out if we broke their promise. And that’s called love keeping your promise and loving them infinity.
8. Offering a Helping Hand
When we are really close to someone we can’t see this special someone suffering and we always offer a helping hand. So, if you are feeling hurt or you feel the pain of that special person and you always want to help them by talking or make every possible effort that means you are in love.
9. No Place for Jealously
We never get jealous when we are in love. We always feel proud of their achievements even we were failed at the same thing. Feeling of Jealous never comes when we love are in love.
10. “We” Perspective
When we are in love, they become a very important part of our life. We always have thought of our partner whether we are planning a surprise party for them or hanging out with our own friends after. It is good to have your own space and grow as individuals but it is natural that we never want to hurt our lover so we always think from their perspective also before taking any decision that involves them in any way.
So, these are the true love signs but if you are in a relationship and you are not experiencing some of these signs. Don’t be anxious, it only means that your relationship has not reached the state of emotional maturity that surpasses physical attraction or the stage of infatuation.
And on the other hand, you can’t force yourself to fall in love with someone and you can’t force some to fall in love with you. So, if it is not working out it is better to understand each other and don’t spoil your relationship and let the beautiful relationship between you, perhaps both of you better off dating each other better.
One-sided love is also a beautiful experience because it is not necessary the one you love will love you back. Here is a beautiful quote who have experienced one-sided love “Sacrificing your happiness for the happiness of the one you love, is by far, the truest type of love”.
