When you are falling in love, you begin to feel some kind of way: like having butterflies in your stomach.
You always want to talk to them. You will even want to change your wardrobe because of them, even though you are broke.
When you begin to fall for someone, the feelings can get really intense and there’s a sense of excitement that’s hard to describe.
So, one day, you might finally be in love. These are few of the signs you need to know if you’re falling in love.
- You feel happy and nervous
If you’re in love, you become a very happy person. It’s like you’re on a natural high. The thought of spending time with your partner really excites you and just looking at the thousands of selfies of you both took together on your phone is enough to put a cheesy smile on your face.
But being in love also makes you a tiny bit nervous. You become anxious for what the future holds, even if you’re not really sure what that is.
- Everything feels new and interesting
If you’re in love, you’re excited to do things you’ve already done a billion times before, just with your partner this time. Your partners are the first ones you think of when you see a romantic movie preview or when you’re planning to make a quick trip to the nearest fast food restaurant.
Sometimes, you’d even be willing to sit through four hours of a sports game, even if you hate sports.
- You feel like showing them to your family and friends
If you’re really into your relationship, you want to bring your partner into all aspects of your life. You want to introduce them to your family and friends with the hope that they’ll really like them because it would hurt you if they didn’t.
If you’re introducing your partner to your family and friends, it is not because of anything else. It is usually because you really want your relationship last.
- You start planning for the future
If you truly love someone, you know that you don’t have plans to let them go any time soon, if ever. So, you begin to include them in all your future plans, whether it’s going on vacation or figuring out where you want to live when you’re older.
You start thinking of your partner when you’re making big decisions because you want them to be there for it all. When you’re in love, your bae or bio becomes your permanent “plus one.”
- Your relationship and vibe feels easy
Staying with your partner is very easy. It isn’t hard work. You don’t have to struggle to find time to spend with them because you literally want to. Even the arguments don’t feel as intense as they do in other relationships. While all couples argue and bicker, when you’re both in love, your priority is your relationship, not your pride.
You’re not worried about being the first person to give in or lose the argument because you can’t imagine your life without this person.
