George Clooney is infamous for being very private when it comes to the media.  His girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, however, loves to tweet about their relationship.  In response to his new mate’s public ways, he had this to tell Rolling Stone magazine: “She can do whatever she wants, I rarely tell anybody what they should be doing with their life.”  It looks like things are getting serious, too.  According to UsMagazine.com, in Kiebler’s latest tweet, she dropped the “L” word, stating, “You know it’s love when your boyfriend has elbow surgery 2 days ago and takes you to a Ravens game.  Especially when he’s a Bengals fan.”  Maybe Clooney won’t tweet his feelings for all to see, but often when your partner does trumps when they say.

What are some ways to tell you’re in love?

Cupid’s Advice:

During the holiday season, feelings of love often become more pronounced. They can be disguised as many other things, lust and infatuation being the most common forms.  Here’s how you know it’s real:

1.  You show it: Like Clooney and Kiebler, sometimes words are better left unsaid.  Showing someone you truly care can really make a person feel special.  Being willing to take them to see their favorite sporting event (even if you loathe them), make them dinner, or even take them on a trip are good ways to tell it’s true love.

2. You sing their praises: Another way to tell you’re in love is wanting to have the whole world know it.  You seem to gush about your partner to anyone willing to listen.

3.  They make your troubles disappear: You are having the day from hell, but just hearing from them makes it all the better.  You know you are smitten when you hear that voice on the other end of the line and all of the issues you were dealing with suddenly seem minor and disappear.
