One of the most common thoughts that will run through your head as you're developing feelings for another person is, "How do you know if you're in love?" People ask it all the time and there's a good chance if you haven't asked that question of someone yourself, you've asked someone else. It's a very tricky thing, especially the first time. There's no guide book to explain it, no light that turns on when it happens to let you know without a doubt you're in love. It's confusing.
Fact is that people and relationships are super complex. A person can be great 90% of the time but then awful to you 10% of the time. Can you still love them if they do bad things? Should you? It's very hard to figure out, and it makes us feel like our own feelings are betraying us sometimes. Luckily, people have been dealing with this for as long as we've had feelings to process, so there are ways you can figure it out. If you're not sure if you love the special girl in your life right now, maybe you just need a few minutes to ponder it over. Look at things from a different perspective and maybe it'll all come clear. So come on, answer a few questions and let's see how you feel.
