Do we have to spell it out for you or do you see it?

How do you know when you’re falling in love? How do you pinpoint your exact feelings for your special person? Let’s start off by clarifying that love doesn’t always have to be presented as “romantic.” Love can also be platonic. You can love your mom, your best friend, your close family members, and even your pet.

But this isn’t about love, this is about falling in love. How do you know you’re falling in love, which is generally a romantic concept? What are the signs that can lead you to this terrifying discovery?

One of the biggest and most obvious signs that you’re falling in love is that the recipient of that emotion is always in your thoughts! You can’t help but connect everything you hear, see, or notice to that one person. You can’t help imagining what they’re doing, what they’re thinking, who they’re with. Thinking constantly about your person is the easiest way to determine whether or not you're falling for them.

The way someone makes you feel by just being in their presence is another giveaway when it comes to falling in love. If their presence automatically makes your day better, then, I hate to break it to you, but you’re in love!

The final sign that you’re falling in love is not as obvious, but when you feel it you’ll know. According to, “Falling in love can result in someone reordering their daily priorities to align with those of their beloved.” Aligning your interest with your significant other is something you don’t feel yourself doing but when you realize you automatically will know.

Now that you know all the signs, the next time you’re with your crush or special someone and are trying to figure out if you love them, stop and think about these signs!
