You Can Be Sure It’s True Love When You Feel Like This
When we were in school, no one ever taught us how true love really feels like. The little that we know we’ve, most likely, picked up in books, magazines or movies. Because these are all the resources we had, we assume that every good feeling we experience when we are with someone, is, automatically, true love.
What True Love Feels Like
This is not to say that true love doesn’t feel amazing – it does! But, a genuine kind of love is more than just the lovey-dovey feelings we get when the relationship is just starting out. In it’s purest form, this is how it feels like to be truly in love:
When you are truly in love, you also feel safe. It’s considered an oxymoron if you tell someone you love them, but you don’t feel safe around them. This could just be you being very dependent rather than in love. Instead of comfort and security, you might just feeling the fear of missing out.
Recognition has something to do with both people in the relationship acknowledging that they are partners. They will always be there for each other, they will always be willing to listen, and they will always have the other’s back when times get rough.
A relationship that doesn’t have a sense of security is not going to last long. Security here means that you are not worried about your partner walking away from your relationship. You know that they are here to stay, and they feel the same way about you.
Let’s forget what we have learned from romance novels, magazines and romcoms (romantic comedy movies). While these resources do paint a good picture of passionate, crazy love, it may not be painting an accurate picture of true love. The truest love makes you feel wanted, makes you feel that you can be your own person, makes you feel supported, and, most importantly, makes you feel that you have someone who cares for you through good and bad times.
