Spending quality time together Even though you may thoroughly enjoy having sex with your partner, spending time together is just as important. Being able to lie in bed and talk about anything and everything is a sure sign that you truly are in love.
A key part of a healthy relationship is listening to your significant other. If you want to listen to their feelings and emotions then you are connecting with your partner on an emotional level rather than a physical level.
Makes you a better person
As cliché as it sounds, your significant other should make you want to become a better person. They should be a positive influence on you and your life and their love is what keeps you optimistic and happy.
If you are in love with your partner you should be comfortable with every aspect of you and your relationship. Whether it is talking opening about your feelings or just relaxing on the couch together. Being comfortable with your significant other is a sure sign that you feel accepted to be who you are and not act like you are someone else.
Meeting the Family
A larger step in a relationship is meeting each other’s family. Even though this is big, it should be a step that you both want to take to strengthen your relationship. If you love someone, you want to show your families why you love them, and have your family love them as well.
It may be difficult to decipher if you are in love with someone or if you are simply “in love” with the physical aspect of your relationship. However, it is very important to be able to differentiate the two feelings.
