Am I really in Love?

Have you ever asked yourself: “Do I really love him/her?”

Turns out there are a lot of ways to check it. If you try to find something on Internet, you can see that there are a lot of tests and quizzes, which are  supposed to help you to get your answers. You may also find articles which describe step by step how to figure out whether you are in love or not.  But do you think they can be helpful?
Love is something very individual. There aren’t any common rules for all the couples.

People say: “If you really love somebody, you want them to be happy, no matter where and no matter with whom”
I personally don’t agree with this. When you love someone, you want them to be nowhere else but right next to you. You can call it selfishness, jealousy, stupidity, call it whatever you want, but it is like that. When you love that person, you simply can’t imagine your life without him/her, and there’s nothing more difficult than to see your loved one with someone else.

I’ve been criticizing since I started writing this post and you might ask me what’s my opinion about this.
I think that when it comes to real love, not lust (a sexual desire) or infatuation (when you are "crazy" about them, but this feeling usually fades over time) you are more than sure that it is true.

When you really love someone you never ask yourself: “Do I really love him/her?”
It's as simple and as difficult as that.

Once upon a time...

Once upon a time there lived Love...

In a small village a girl was born, so Love decided to go and live in her small heart which was beating softly and making Love feel warm. When the girl opened her eyes she saw a woman and Love whispered in her ear "That's you mother". Girl was too young to understand Love's words, but something made her smile and the woman smiled too. Later when she said "Mother" for the first time she put all the love she had into that word. But there was a man too, and when Love said "This is your Father" the girl understood that she had to share her love with two people.

One day her mother came with a baby in her hands. "That's your brother" whispered Love and the girls eyes were shining from happiness, she was trying to give all her love to that baby with her smile. Now there were more people to love.

"How do I know if I am with the right person?"

During a seminar, a woman asked, "How do I know if I am with the right  person?" the author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, "It depends. Is that your partner?"  In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"  Let me answer this question because the chances are good  that it's weighing on your mind replied the author.

Here's the answer. Every relationship has a cycle...In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love.
