By Courtney Omernick

Ah, love. The subject is covered on television, in books, movies, magazines, and now, here! Sometimes, it seems
that we receive an overwhelming amount of suggestions on how to love our partner’s better, express our love, etc. from every form of media. But, what if you don’t even know if you’re in love in the first place? Never fear, Cupid to the rescue!

Cupid’s Advice:

1. Everything they do is perfect: From the way they dance to how they brush their teeth in the morning, there is no flaw in any action they make whatsoever. And, you’re completely smitten while watching their every single move. Seriously, this person can do no wrong!

2. They’ve consumed your thoughts: Can’t figure out what to eat for breakfast? Finding it hard to study? If the person you’re with is starting to cloud your thoughts, you might be in love.

3. You slowly retreat from society: Before your partner, it was all about your friends, family, and having “me” time. Now that you’re together, you’ve started to spend less and less time with others and more time with your “other.” It’s not that you hate your friends and family, it’s just that being away from your partner feels so…wrong.

4. Being with them is what matters: You could be scuba diving, at the movies, hiking, grocery shopping, or just lying in bed; it doesn’t matter. As long as you have them by your side, one activity is just as great as the next.

5. You don’t mind having to compromise sometimes: If you can’t be flexible regarding something simple, you should
probably start packing your bags. However, if you don’t mind a little give and take, it’s probably a good sign that you’re in love.

6. You’ve forgotten about your ex: John who? If you’re in love, you’re no longer wondering about whether or not you made the right decision to break it off with your ex. In fact, the thought is the furthest thing from your mind. You might not even remember why you were with your ex to begin with.

7. You’re happy…about everything: Your life feels like it’s all rainbows and butterflies. Nothing can bring you down. Stuck in a traffic jam on the way to work? No problem! This only gives you more time to think about your partner.

8. You’re reordering your priorities: Let’s face it, you’ve started to put your partner’s needs before your own. You might have even changed your clothing, habits, mannerisms, or values in order for them to better match your partners. Guess what? Love is in the air!

9. You feel the words slipping out of your mouth: It could happen when the two of you are simply walking down the street. Your partner looks at you, and without saying anything, you feel the phrase, “I love you” on the tip of your tongue. If those words are crying to leave your lips, it could be love.

10. You’d do anything for them: If you’re in love, you generally feel a sense of empathy and think of the other person’s pain you their own. Because of this, you feel that you’d be willing to sacrifice anything for the other person.
