1- Believing that this Person is Special

When you are in love, you end up believing that your partner is unique. Scientists believe that this single mindedness is due to the elevated levels of central dopamine – a chemical that is involved in attention and focus. That’s how your body signals you that you are in love. When in love, your mind gets tuned towards only one special person.

believing that this person is special

You do not feel that any other person can ever take his or her place.

2- Always focusing on the Positives

People who are truly in love tend to focus on the positives of their partners overlooking any negative traits. Even a trivial event reminds them of their loved one and one can instantly start daydreaming. The individuals in love stop seeing the bad habits or mistakes of their loved ones. This makes them go blind and believe on every word, which their lover says to them.

3- Emotional ups and downs

It is a well-known fact that a person in love not only experiences emotional instability, but physiological instability as well. A person is usually facing fluctuations between different states of mind, namely, euphoria, restlessness, loss of appetite, insomnia, accelerated heartbeat and breathing. He also faces anxiety, panic and despair especially in cases when the individual is unable to contact his lover on a regular basis. Researchers have even compared the feeling of love to a form of addiction. If this is not modified in a positive way, then you might face severe consequences and won’t be able to focus in several other segments of your life.

Express your feelings for your loved one with the help of sweet romantic love messages.

4- Intensified attraction

People in love tend to have more eye contact and it can mean that you are head over heels. It is believed that increase in the central dopamine levels might be responsible for this reaction too. You also need to make sure that you have a balance in between your love life and career commitments. It is proven that you get distracted to a great extent due to the intensified attraction in between you and your partner.

5- Intrusive thinking

Intrusive thinking is a form of obsessive behavior in which people who are in love tend to spend around 85 percent of their waking hours musing over their loved one. You can even catch the individuals in love daydreaming regarding their lovers to a great extent especially if their relationship is a new one. This can hamper personal space to a great extent. So, make sure you customize your intrusive thinking time and create a slot for the same.

6- Emotional dependency

People, who are in love, regularly exhibit signs of emotional dependency in their relationship, like possessiveness, jealousy, and separation or rejection anxiety. Various MRI Scans done on the people in love backup this theory. The MRI scans showed up the activation of the brain areas in a similar way as in cocaine addiction. The behavior exhibited by cocaine addicts has found to be more or less similar to the ones associated with rejection in love. So, it is important to find a solution for this type of dependency as it can cause negative impact on the body of the individual who is in love.

7- Planning a future

Individuals who are in love constantly wait for emotional union with their lover. They seek out ways to get closer and plan a future together. You will find that the individuals who are newly into love are planning for their future together earlier than required. Even before knowing each other well, most of the lovers especially girls plan for the wedding day in much advance.

8- Feeling of empathy

When a person is in love, he or she starts to feel a strong sense of empathy towards his/her loved one. This makes them feel the pain of their partner as their own. This usually happens among the young adults especially the college students who fall in love for the first times in their lives. You can find this quite common, as the level of public affection is very high in such couples.

9- Aligning interests

Falling in love is marked by a tendency to reorder your daily activities, habits and mannerisms in accordance to your partner. Both of you tend to ensure that the routine is aligned in such a way that you find ample of time to talk even at work via texts and calls. This makes it quite necessary for both the lovers to carve time for each other and make it a priority in their daily lives.

10- Feeling possessive

Individuals who are deeply in love experience longing for their partners. However, this is coupled with possessiveness and extreme jealousy when the partner is suspected of infidelity. You just need to stay calm and let them come when they wish to meet or talk to you. Nagging is quite commonly seen in the individuals who have recently found their love. It is essential that you do not make your love turn into a negative source of energy for your lover.

11- Craving an emotional union

In a relationship, there is a co-existence of a desire of sexual union and an emotional union. However, when a person is in true love, the emotional union takes precedence over the sexual one. It is seen that in a relationship the person who is more indulged in love, make the most efforts and tries to make matters work in every situation.

12- Feeling out of control

A group of scientists have found that the individuals who report being in love usually say that their passion and a feeling of being high all the time, are involuntary and out of their control. If you are in love, you need to keep a firm control on your emotions and avoid unnecessary interference in your lover’s life.

13- Acceptance of their gross stuff

It has been observed and concluded that in a person who is super attracted to their partner, the feelingof sexual arousal definitely overrides the feeling of being grossed out.

So people, if you are in awe of your partner’s uniqueness, you have landed yourself up in a feeling we all know as LOVE!

If you are in true love then prepare yourself to write a wonderful and memorable wedding vow. And, if you are planning for pregnancy, then start your beautiful journey by sharing love you quotes with each other.
