You know you love the right person when you experience feelings of happiness, and contentment whenever you get to be with them.
Love is the most complex of all emotions that humans experience. Not because it is formed of some otherworldly matter, but because it’s formed in our minds and keeping science away- in our hearts — and our minds are incredibly complex.
There isn’t any explanation for love, depending on the intensity it can be a language, a dream, or a mere feeling of affection. I won’t try to explain the idea of love here as that could take nights and hundreds of pages.
The affection we feel is not always for the person, sometimes it just for the idea of who they are. Our perception here plays a major role, often what we see in a person is not what they really are but what we perceive them to be or want them to be. And there is a big difference between loving someone and loving the perception of who they are or who you want them to be.
10 Signs You Are In Love With The Right Person And Not Just The Idea Of Them
1. You make up excuses to spend more time together
You feel at home whenever you’re together regardless of where you are. You throw off your sleep schedule and make other sacrifices of things that need to be done just to spend time with them.
Finally, when you crave to get ‘home’ from work, the home is a person and not a place. You find solace in their presence, the kind of solace an infant found in its mother’s embrace.
The comfort and peace take you back to childhood where your bedroom seemed heavenly. You just want to be there, melt in their arms.
2. You strive to make yourself and them a better person.
When you’re in love, you put in efforts to become a better person, a person worthy of their love in return.
Also, you push your partner to excel, to become the best version of themselves. You have their back and through rough times you are there holding their hands. You’re constantly encouraging and supporting them to pursue their dreams and goals.
You are always there cheering for them and taking pride in their accomplishments and you’re always there to hold them when they fall, in a nutshell, you’re always there trying to push them to excel and bring the best in them.
3. You are content with your relationship.

4. You have left the past behind.
Often people tend to carry emotional baggage from the previous relationship. Many times they get into a relationship looking for an escape from the hurts and pains of the previous relationship.
If you have left the past behind and hopped on this train to begin a new journey you sure in love with your partner. A relationship in which one of the partners is carrying the baggage from the past relationship is bound to suffer a disastrous fate.
