10 signs you're in love with your sweetie
Falling in love is one of the most exciting, scary and unpredictable things you can do. So many questions can run through your head like, "Do I love really love you?" and "How do I know what love feels like?" Really, it depends. Love is beautiful, but it's also hard to have a definition of the word because it means something different to everyone. Even still, there are a few sure fire signs that indicate you're in love with your BF.
1. You're the best version of yourself
When you're together, he makes you feel beautiful and amazing—even if you're in sweatpants and sick. He makes you want to be the best version of yourself, whether that's the you at school, work, home, etc.
2. You want your friends and family to like him
Your friends and family are some of the most important people in your life, so it's only natural that you'd want them to approve of the person you're spending so much time with.
3. When you're apart you miss him
Vacation, sports and more can keep you apart from each other for a few days or weeks, but the whole time you're just thinking about each other.
4. Their imperfections don't matter
Let's be real: No one is perfect. But instead of seeing his "flaws" as imperfections, you see something else. You see them as things that make him unique and you accept these traits about him without hesitation.
5. You don't hide who you are
From binge-watching three seasons of your fave Netflix show and nomming on more pizza than you should to dancing crazy in your room with your hairbrush, you never hide who you are from him.
6. You express your feelings in public
When you're out and about together you have no shame in holding hands and stealing smooches because you want everyone to know that you are together. This shows you're so confident in your feelings that you want to share them with the world.
7. You make sacrifices
When you love someone, your interests matter to each other. So when he *really* wants to go see his fave band play, you'll skip the mall with your friends to join him.
8. Simple tasks are fun
Doing homework, walking the dog and cleaning are all tasks that can be boring, but when you do them together it's a blast. Basically, having him by your side makes everything better.
9. Every love song and romantic movie reminds you of him
No matter if you're sitting in the car listening to the latest love song or watching the new Nicholas Sparks film, you'll think of him right away.
10. He's your "person"
When something happens in your life—good or bad—he's the person you turn too. He's the first person you think about when you wake up and the last person you think of before you go to bed. You see a funny commercial or start watching a new TV show and all you want to do is tell him about it right after. These might seem like little things, but together, they can all add up to one thing: love.
