A lot of us are in relationships with the people we love, but as humans, now and then, there’s a bit of doubt as to the true nature of things. We have all been there at some point, really.
A love relationship is a true relationship. Love doesn’t lie. When you’re in love, your actions show it.
Here are 12 more signs that show one is in a relationship with true love.
YOU GIVE WITHOUT EXPECTING
In a relationship where there’s true love, people give wholeheartedly. You don’t give with the intention of getting something back from the person. For example, giving financial assistance without hoping to get sex in return.
THERE’S UNDILUTED HAPPINESS
You know you are in a relationship with true love when the mere sight of your partner lights you up with a smile, no matter how hard your day might have been.
YOU CAN’T STAY MAD FOR LONG
Everyone gets angry and feels hurt, it’s natural to. However, it’s difficult to stay mad at someone you really love for long because you would miss them. And of course, that would also mean hurting them more.
Love is sacrifice and compromise. When you’re in love, you are always ready to give up something important if it makes your partner happier.
THERE’S EFFORT TO BE BETTER
Relationships that last long are those where the partners show effort in trying to be better, and improve on themselves in order to better their relationship. When this is lacking on your part or theirs, it may not be love.
YOU CAN’T STAND HURTING THEM
The goal is to make your partner happier than they were before you met them, so you can’t do anything to put that in jeopardy.
YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR PROMISES
It’s easy to promise and fail, but it’s not that hard when you’re in love. This is of course, not only about your integrity, but also about keeping your partner happy.
YOUR PARTNER IS A PART OF YOUR LIFE
Naturally, you want to ride solo, and keep things to yourself sometimes, but then, you also understand that this person has become a part of you, so you carry them along, and keep them in the loop as regards all your plans.
THEIR PAIN IS YOUR PAIN
You can’t love someone, and not care about their pain. When they’re down, you’re down, and when they’re happy, you also share in that.
