True love gives the perfect meaning to a true romance. But it can be difficult to find. Can you spot these 10 signs of true love in your own relationship?
True love isn't shaped or formed in a heartbeat or in a second glance.
It takes time to grow.
If you feel love at first sight, there's a big chance you might be having a case of infatuation.
What is infatuation? It’s an overwhelming rush of romantic and sexual emotions.
Then what is True Love?
True love, ironically, can’t be defined. Well, not precisely. But each of us can have our own definition of love – some can be put to words and others can only be felt.
Think of it as a pure white light that you put in front of a prism and it jets out into many colors, and each color has its own role to making love whole. Trust and loyalty is only a few of these colors.
True love's meaning is hard to define, but the signs are there to be seen in every perfect loving relationship.
The 10 signs of true love in a perfect romance
#1 Give and take.
You give to the relationship sincerely, without any expectations of having something back.
Just having this special around makes you smile or laugh.
You go to great lengths to ensure their happiness or wellbeing, even if they don't realize it.
#4 You will never hurt them.
Being passionately in love with someone means you can’t even imagine hurting them, emotionally or physically.
#5 You keep your promises.
When you experience true love, your moral conscience is stronger when it comes to this one special person and keeping a promise gets a special boost in motivation.
#6 You share their burden.
Seeing them suffer makes you suffer too. You take the time to know their problem and make ways to solve even if you are having problems of your own.
#7 Pride and jealousy.
When you love someone, pride and jealousy never enter the picture even if they beat you in DOTA or League of Legends.
You’d be willing to endure anything, just to see them happy.
#9 Their perspective.
You always think from their point of view before making any decision that involves them in any way.
#10 Them before yourself.
What is true love without selflessness? Like a true knight or lady, you make sure every good opportunity finds your lover having the first go. Like having the first taste of that Ice Cream Cookie Dessert. Yum!
So are you experiencing true love?
If you're not experiencing any of these true love signs, don't worry. Maybe yours haven't reached this stage of emotional maturity yet that surpasses physical attraction or the stage of infatuation.
Give it Time.
As long as you are happy with each other, you’re already experiencing the perfect kind of love!
