  1. if you think about the other person constantly, you’re in love. if thoughts come and go, you think you’re in love
  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
  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
  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

  7. you don't feel like you're wasting your time
  8. you want to know everything about him
  9. he's your best friend
  10. you're less attracted to others

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.

Do you know you're in love?
