Are the butterflies in the stomach love or that giddy feeling when you see the person is or is that broad smile? So many different signs and feelings that can indicate love. But are these ultimate cues of love? 

Most probably not. They may lead you to feel so, because of the movies and shows but that is not the reality. 

So how do we know that we are in love? What are the cues we are looking for? How do we actually know that the feeling is love and not just infatuation? 

So much confusion just to decode a four-letter word. Let’s answer these three questions to figure out the four-letter word. Are these the only questions that matter? Definitely not. 

There are multiple questions and things you need to consider before you take the big step of proposing or saying a yes to the proposal to the love of your life. But these 3 questions will help you at least ensure what you are feeling about them and what should be your next step. 

What is love?

Starting with our very first question, how do we know it’s love?

Love is not simple, nor does it have a simple explanation. It is different for every person and every relationship and bond demands different types of love.  Let’s talk about how we know it’s love in a romantic relationship. 

The feeling of love is very wholesome. We feel the importance and priority of the other person. It’s not only us who are putting in the effort. They understand you and your problems and difficulties. The trust and respect is mutual. 

They know you are not perfect but don’t want you to change. Your growth as an individual is as important. These are some of the key points you can look out for. Take your time in deciding how and what you feel. 

What is the difference between love and infatuation?

That brings us to the second question: How do we differentiate between love and infatuation? 

Sometimes the lines are clearly visible while sometimes they aren’t. Most of the time it is blurred. How do we figure out our feelings? Is it easy? No. Is there a step-by-step procedure by which you can know? Again no. But there are some indicators that will point out the fact that it’s love or just infatuation.  

Let’s get into discussing some of these indicators. First of all, if it’s just infatuation the things you liked about the person will fade away. The feeling of how perfect the person goes away and it causes irritation. The attraction deems down. It doesn’t feel like a fairy tale anymore. These are a few things you can look for while trying to weigh your options: it’s love or mere infatuation. 

Coming to the third and most important question: What are the cues to look for?

The cues can be mixed signals or confusing from one end or both ends. You or the other might be confused or not sure or would want to take your time making the decision. But their actions would always show how they feel if not their words. If they don’t feel the attachment they’ll pull away and act hot and cold, on the other hand, if they do genuinely love you they become even more interested in every detail of your life. 

They will want to know you and everyone related to you better. Your schedule, likes, and dislikes will matter to them. They try hard not to upset you or make you feel unwanted. They’ll be proud to introduce you to everyone. These are definitely some cues and actions you should be looking for when you feel confused or unsure. The actions are usually a dead giveaway of the feelings.

These are some of the ways of how to tell someone you love them.  These are the best ways to tell someone you love them. 

Everyone’s love language® is different. And so the way of saying I love you to everyone is different. Some prefer to touch, some want gifts and some enjoy just spending time with you, and every way of saying and showing love is correct. 

Check out Gary Chapman’s take on the 5 love languages who introduced this concept:

The concept of right and wrong doesn’t stand. It’s only what makes you happy that counts. So be bold, and go and confess your love to that person before it’s too long. 

Do something cheesy, say something sweet, and make them fall in love with you all over again. Prove to them why you are their best decision and they yours. 

Go on, love with all your heart. Take the risk, let love win just one more time. Go for it, say out loud. Let them know, tell them you love them.
