To celebrate Valentines day, I'm gonna share to you guys what my key points on being inlove are and hopefully will help you if you are stuck on the thought "am I really inlove?"
Disclaimer: I am in no way a professional at this but I'm just speaking from my own experience towards the topic and offer a little advice and inspiration.
- You find yourself considering.
As an independent person, you'll think and know that you can survive without anybody but then when a specific person comes along, you can see yourself needing them but not in a bad way though, but more of like finding the reason to not want to be alone anymore.
- If the opinion of a specific person matters to you.
You can do whatever you wanna do but then there's just that thought inside of you that "he/she doesn't like me doing this or wearing this". Either you follow or you don't, you still value their opinion and not completely cross it off your list of choices.
- You can see yourself working with him/her.
You know that you guys would get along no matter how different or similar you two are. You can see him/her making an effort and you yourself is also making time for the other person. You may not agree all the time but you both know how to fix it together and not as an individual.
- You trust him/her.
You move out of your comfort zone whenever you're with him/her. Saying that is easy but actually doing it is what's hard. Having someone beside you just adds to the pressure but since you are more comfortable having them there with you during one of your most vulnerable stages, that is one good sign of trust.
- You move out of your way to be with him/her.
Time is gold and it's just not a saying. It's really precious since it involves effort, thought and care. One that you won't be able to take back but you decide to spend it with a specific person when they need you. There is no "sorry, I'm busy" but there is "I'll be there as soon as I can".
- You guys start talking or doing things beyond the friendship line.
How sure are you that you guys are just friends? How sure are you that you don't think about them as a significant other from time to time? And how sure are you that he/she doesn't feel something a little bit more than friendship with you? There's suddenly talking about the future together, random dates and more.
- You are thinking of a specific person while reading this.
I'm pretty sure that at this point, you know you are inlove already.
