1. Lust

When you first meet, you can’t keep your hands off each other not just on dates, but also when you just happen to run into each other at home or in public. Lust isn’t love, but it’s a good indicator that you’re on your way there. It’s important to remember, though, that lust is fickle—it often doesn’t last more than six months or so before tapering off. So if things are still hot between you after six months and beyond, you might be falling in love.

2. Attraction

The more time you spend together, the more likely you are to notice their flaws but love them anyway .Nobody is perfect. At least, that’s what they say, but perhaps it’s more accurate to describe love as imperfect—and there’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hold someone to high standards or have certain expectations for them, but if you start a relationship with a blind-eye approach, you’re setting yourself up for heartbreak later on. If someone has decided they love you, even though you have some qualities and characteristics that [they] don’t find attractive about [you], [they] see those as secondary to who [you are], not primary. Translation: They see your flaws as part of what makes you interesting and special.

3. Intimacy

The two of you talk about everything and tell each other secrets that nobody else knows. Your love is so strong that it allows you to share things you’ve never shared with anyone else. You talk about what kind of future you want, where you want to live, how many kids you want to have, and how your careers will be a part of it all. When someone falls in love they tend to feel a greater sense of closeness and intimacy. In other words, two people become one.

4. Being Us

It feels like the two of you were always meant to be together not only do you have a deep connection, but even your families seem to know and love each other. This sense of intimacy is powerful—and addictive. Knowing that you’ve found your life partner makes you want to spend as much time with them as possible. When they’re not around, all you can think about is when you will see them again; their absence hurts like an ache in your heart. While it may feel embarrassing at first, it’s perfectly normal to be excited about spending time with your new boyfriend or girlfriend! It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve been a part of a relationship; falling in love isn’t just for newlyweds. There are plenty of married couples who never got over that initial spark!

5. Trust

There are no games—you know this person will always be there for you for better or worse, for richer or poorer, for happy times and sad. This person will always have your back. The first sign of love is trust; if you find yourself unable to trust someone, it’s a clear signal that they’re not worthy of your time.

6. Dependence/Nesting

You want to move things from your apartment into theirs (and vice versa!). Maybe you’re already living together and your things are just easier to locate there, or maybe your apartment is a sty, but either way, it’s undeniable that there’s something special about sharing your space with someone. It’s especially sweet when one of you moves a favorite piece of furniture or an heirloom into their new shared space—and it feels pretty great to borrow something of theirs. Physical Dependence: When spending time apart doesn’t feel right, you’ll miss each other deeply: While physical dependence doesn’t mean that you physically need to be around them in order to exist, it’s likely that when you do spend time together you enjoy feeling close to one another.

7. Engagement/Commitment

This isn’t a one-time thing anymore. Even if it doesn’t seem serious yet, you have an idea of where this is going. Trust is a major component of falling in love and, when it comes to relationships, trust is a very fragile thing. The more you spend time with someone, getting to know their character, personality, and values; figuring out whether they are going to be good or bad for you—the more your feelings will develop. And since trust is so crucial to any relationship, feeling comfortable enough with your partner (or potential partner) that you can begin letting down your guard is an important milestone on your journey toward I love you. At some point (and possibly before official commitment), something changes inside you and things feel different. Maybe it’s when he pulls out his phone at dinner and shows you all of his photos from childhood that he doesn’t even remember sharing with anyone else.

8. Breaking Up Is Hard To Do (But Worth It)

When it’s over, you feel like there was a huge hole in your life. Whatever happens, don’t look back with regret. It will only make you bitter and jaded. Be grateful for your past relationships, even if they didn’t work out. If you can’t find it within yourself to be thankful for what you experienced, consider asking a friend or family member to help you put things into perspective. They can remind you of all the great memories and encourage you to embrace what comes next.

9. Relationship Saboteurs

Why do we sabotage our own relationships? There are many reasons why we might act out and hurt those we care about, but sometimes it’s easier to see what those reasons are by looking at how others treat those who love them. In other words, you can learn a lot about yourself and your relationship habits by observing your partner’s friends or family. Here are a few common signs that someone is doing something to intentionally disrupt their relationship

Falling in love can be one of the most thrilling experiences in life, but it can also be confusing if you’re not sure whether or not you’re actually in love with the person you think you are. Some people find this realization shocking and heartbreaking, but the thing about love is that it’s often surprising and takes us by surprise when we least expect it. While there are plenty of signs that may indicate whether or not someone is falling in love with you, there’s no guarantee that everyone will react to them the same way.
