Aw, love. It’s so complicated and confusing and emotional, but it’s kind of awesome when it’s happening to you. I mean, no, it’s more than kind of awesome, if I’m being honest here. There’s a reason why basically everything in the world focuses on love, guys.
But how do you know if you’re actually in love with someone? Like I said, this is one seriously complicated feeling and sometimes it can be hard to figure out if you’re in love or just feeling intense feelings of lust. How do you know if it’s real?! These thoughts always used to bug me so much.
I’m sure love is different for everyone, but at the same time, there are some things about being in love that I think we all feel at some point when it’s happening to us. If you’re wondering if what you’re feeling is legit or if you just feel like reading something cutesy today, here are 20 signs that you’re in love, accompanied by adorable GIFs.
All those stupid corny love songs finally actually mean something to you.
You take those kissy selfies that you used to HATE but now you’re like, um, whatever, we’re cute.
You know those little things your BF/GF does that should annoy you? You actually find them really cute and endearing.
And the things that do annoy you are easy to overlook.
You think about the person A LOT. Like, unhealthy amounts.
When they’re sad, you’re sad. When they’re happy, you’re happy.
You’ve maybe possibly gone on those face morphing websites to put in your pictures and see what your baby will look like. But just once. Only once!
A night out with all of your friends suddenly just doesn’t seem as appealing as hanging with your sweetie.
You can get in a fight with your BF/GF without automatically assuming the relationship is over.
You don’t feel the need to wear makeup or get all dressed up for the person all the time.
Oh, your ex did what? You could honestly care less.
Some of your hobbies that were once so important to you have become less important when compared to hanging with your sweetie.
You learn how to compromise in a relationship because you genuinely want to do things that make this other person happy.
You give your BF/GF a sickeningly cute nickname and you don’t care that it sounds ridiculous because it’s cute.
When talking to other people, you constantly feel the need to bring their name up no matter what the conversation is about.
The person you’re into genuinely makes you feel better about yourself.
Maybe you never imagined being with this person, but for some reason, it just works.
You might get jealous sometimes (okay, a lot of times), but in the end, you know you can trust this person.
Before you met this person, you were all like, “I hate relationships! I don’t believe in love!” and now you want to do all of those cute things you once thought were so dumb.
You just know, okay?
