Jennifer Aniston’s engagement to fiancé Justin Theroux brings her tears of joy, according to People.

Cupid’s Advice:

People who are smitten with their partner live in a completely different world than the rest of us. It’s easy for them to give the benefit of the doubt in situations. They tend to focus on the positive side, with an assumption of good will. Also, the generally feel a constant sense of enthusiasm or enchantment, expressing passion and feelings of tenderness. Here’s how to tell if “smitten” describes you:

1. You talk him up to your friends: If he is meeting your girlfriends for the first time and they already know everything about him, you are crazy about him. Wanting to constantly talk about your new partner to any friend that will listen is a good sign of how well your feelings are for him. You might get teased, but it’s worth it.

2. You like doing mundane activities together: Another example is the thought of helping him do his laundry, clean his apartment or go with him to run HIS errands makes you giddy inside. You may be perceived as the most boring couple ever by your friends. Even so, you prefer doing this because you two are together.

3. You can’t get over how handsome he is: Have you caught yourself staring at him when he’s staring at the TV? Better yet, has he caught you doing that? An obvious clue that you are smitten is the overwhelming urge to stare at his beautiful face. Let’s face it — you’re hooked.
