Whether you’ve been in love before or are completely new to it, there often comes a time when we start to wonder… Am I falling in love? What are some simple signs that will tell you you’re falling in love? Here is a list of our top ten:
1. When you’re with them, you can’t stop staring at them
If you find yourself starring at them lovingly for even just a couple seconds longer than usual, it’s definitely a sign. In fact, studies have shown that couples who lock eyes have a stronger romantic connection then those who don’t.
2. You’ll feel safe
We may often feel vulnerable when we open up to someone, but if they make you feel safe either physically and or emotionally, you may definitely be falling for them.
3. You want to share everything with them
When falling in love, we may have an overwhelming urge to open up and share everything with them. From the mundane day, to daily tasks, to making future plans with them. Whatever it is, you want them there by your side and appreciate the support system.
4. You just can’t get them outta your head
You may find yourself day dreaming about them, and it feels like your time spent apart feels like forever. You start to crave them and it can feel like an addiction! Your brain releases phenylethylamine (also known as the love drug) which produces dopamine giving us those warm, happy feelings when we’re falling in love.
5. You want the best for them
Someone’s happiness becomes even more important when you’re falling for them. You’ll want to support them any way you can and help them be the best version of themselves. They may even inspire you to be the best version of you!
6. You are willing to go above and beyond to make your partner’s life easier
Maybe you’re not a morning person, but you’ll wake up early to cook breakfast for your partner before their 12 hour shift or you will take the time to help them navigate a situation. If you find yourself going above and beyond in little ways, chances are you’re smitten!
7. You love their quirks
A study found that small quirks can make a person fall deeper in love with someone rather than just physical attributes because people have unique preferences. It could be their laugh, their expressions or even how they sleep. If you find that you’re suddenly in awe of their uniqueness you might be in love.
8. You’ll feel free
In the right relationship, the love will feel like it lifts you up, helping you to experience more out of life. No matter what life may throw at you, you’ll know things will be okay with this person by your side. Your love is easy and built on trust, empathy and support for one another.
9. You’re more open to try new things
You’ll make the effort to get involved with things your partner values and is passionate about. Your mind will start to open up and suddenly you aren’t so afraid to skydive with your partner by your side.
10. You’re constantly talking about them
Your boasting about them to friends and family and make references about them all the time. Your proud to say “I’m taken” and are proud they’re yours!
It can be a wonderful and exciting time for you when you fall in love. Being completely open to love, allowing someone into your “bubble” and knowing that he or she is waiting to hear your voice, feel your touch, share a laugh with you and hold you as you fall asleep is what life is all about.
