Some women think that they're in love, but they actually aren't. It can be hard to tell the difference, which is why Elite Daily is here to help. According to their website, here's the difference between knowing you're in love and just thinking that you are:
1 If You Think about the Other Person Constantly, You’re in Love. if Thoughts Come and Go, You Think You’re in Love
You can't get the man you love out of your head, no matter what you do.
2 If You’re Selfless, You’re in Love. if You’re Using Your Partner to Fulfill Your Desires, You Think You’re in Love
You should be trying your best to make your partner happy, not to be making yourself happy.
3 If You Willingly Make Sacrifices, You’re in Love. if You Don’t Want to Change for Someone else, You Think You’re in Love
You'd try your hardest to become a better person if you were really in love. Otherwise, you wouldn't waste your time.
4 If You Aren’t Forcing Things, You’re in Love. if You Find Yourself Making Too Much of an Effort, You Think You’re in Love
Relationships require effort, but loving him shouldn't be an effort. You can't force feelings.
5 If You Feel Unconditional Affection for Your Partner, You’re in Love. if His or Her Quirks Bother You, You Think You’re in Love
Everyone has negative traits. However, when you're in love, you won't mind those traits.
6 If You Think You’re in Love, You’re Not in Love
When you're truly in love, you don't have to think about it. You'll just know it.
7 You Don't Feel like You're Wasting Your Time
Sometimes we're in relationships just for the sake of having them and we say, "Well it's not serious just someone to date." That right there screams it's not love.
8 You Want to Know Everything about Him
If you're genuinely curious to know everything about him and never get bored hearing more, it could be love!
9 He's Your Best Friend
If you can talk to him about anything and never worry about him judging you, its love.
10 You're Less Attracted to Others
Just because you're in a relationship doesn't mean you stop looking, however, when you're in love the urge to look (or touch) is reduced.
Rebecca You shouldn't have to change who you are, that's not real love. I don't think I've ever felt that someone truly loves me for who I am. It's so confusing, I know I deserve better, but it's so hard. 😢
CamilléRose I feel so confused..🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️
Sapna Love is selfless and effortless. A frame of life where you can just be who you are without being judgemental and being judged
Shemaine I agree with Mandy as well. For example, you have to change who you r to please someone else, and the change won't always be positive.
Sapna Ofcourse no doubt I'm in love very much in love . Can't feel such a blessing came my way after seeing so much suffering in life. Can't THANK GOD enough

Tanisha Mandy is very right about this
J My ex clearly just THOUGHT he was in love with me *tears*

Latorya Absolutely agree with Mandy
Bunny Some people feel deeply in love but hide their feelings to protect themselves such as the case with scorpio people!
Sara I agree with Mandy
Dolly yes yes yes!!!
Mandylicious I don't agree with this at all. Love is not something you should rely on to make you happy, only YOU can make yourself happy. It's a definite no that you should be thinking about the other person all the time. Seriously, how are you going to be successful if your constantly thinking about the guy you "love"? Not to mention, if you're a mother, then that's definitely out of the question. You barely have time to think about anything except your kids, I'm sure! And why on earth would you EVER change for someone else. Seriously, who knows whether or not the person you love today will be the person you love tomorrow? If you change for them, you'll never recognize that girl I the mirror. I'm sorry, but I'm really shocked that you'd advertise a message as sexist and biased as this, and label it "real love". Why on earth would you tell a girl that something as simple as believing in your Independent self is not loving the other person enough. No freaking way -- love yourself first, love others second. You might need to make sacrifices, but make wise ones. And for goodness sakes, if you think you love someone, who is to actually say you don't?!
BrittanyBAKER Being shy doesn't mean you either are in love or are not in love. You'll know it! By the looks of your name, you already know it lol :) good luck!
