When you’re in love with someone, you’ll just know. However, if you need some reassurance that your feelings are real, continue reading! Here are a few signs that you’re in love with your partner:

“Love is a quiet trust, it is affection built out of familiarity. Love is really, really, really knowing someone — and wanting a life that has them in it, not because of what they can do, but because of what they are.” — badass_panda

“For me it was a quiet inner peace. A feeling that life would be life with her and something far more insignificant without.” — rumble272

“When a person can make your day by simply existing. How, when you’re with them, time seems to stop. When you realize no one has ever made you feel happier, safer, or more complete.” — KatyLiedTheBitch

“When you start treating the other person like your ‘second-self.’ Their needs and wants are just as, if not more, important than your own.” — Asclepius333

“You know you are in love when you can no longer imagine living your life without this person, and the idea of spending the rest of life with them is inviting, not terrifying.” — skydecklover

“When all the new wears off, you don’t have butterflies every time they call or text or you know you’re going to see them, you’re not getting all giddy about ‘firsts’ in your relationship, you’re no longer both on your best behavior, you can see their faults and let them see yours, you’ve survived a few disagreements, you’re not boning every time you catch some alone time, the sex isn’t mind blowing every single time. And after all that, they’re still your favorite person. They still think the sun shines out your ass. you still do things for each other, for the simple joy of making them happy. The absence of the rose colored glasses of new lust hasn’t been replaced with resentment, it has evolved into comfort, stability, and security with that person. “ — the_taco_knight

“When you find someone that makes you think, ‘Yeah, I could let this person fucking destroy me in every way and still be okay with it.’” — RainAhh

“When you do gross shit in front of them and they do gross shit in front of you and you don’t even recoil that much. Because it’s them. And you’re like, ‘okay ew but whatever.’” — bumpinbumpinbumpin

“I know I’m starting to fall in love when it’s not just about the person being attractive or making me happy or anything like that, but rather I couldn’t stand the thought to see her afraid or in pain. Like her pain becomes mine, if that makes sense.” — [deleted]

“When after few minutes you were thinking about something else you suddenly remember about your SO and you get that feeling of a bottle of champagne popping in your chest and throat.” — Munninnu

“When you’ll do anything to compromise. You get happy at their existence. You’ll drop everything just to cuddle with them.” — throwawayTulpaAcc

“When you prioritize the needs of the the person over yours. When you do things they like, but you don’t because it matters to them. When you help each other with the chores. Love goes beyond attraction or sex.” — gunnxrs

“I had a dream we broke up, woke up with tears all on my face. Then I knew.” — iamnotthemoon
