See if the person wants the best for you. This should be true even if it isn't the best for him or her. If a person truly loves you, then s/he will understand that there are some things that you have to do that may not be the best for him or her, or may mean that you will be spending some time apart. If s/he truly loves you, then s/he will understand that you have to spend a summer on a remote island to pursue your career in marine biology, or that you have to go home early to get enough sleep for a test instead of spending the night with him or her.
See if the person is always there for you. This includes those times when it's inconvenient. Sure, if you want to grab a drink or a tasty meal, the person is always around, but what about when you need a ride from the airport or you need someone to walk your dog while you're sick?
If the person truly loves you, then s/he'll be there for you during the fun times as well as the not-so-fun times.
This doesn't mean the person will want to be attached at the hip, but it does mean that the person will try to take as many opportunities as possible to see you. Let them give you space.
If the person is comfortable
If she really loves you, she will ask for your advice and opinions, whether it's on big or small matters. She may feel how about asking for your opinion, but you do it because she loves you. She doesn't have to ask for your opinion on everything - only the things know really matter. Hope to be listened to. If the person really loves you, then she'll not only open up to you, but she'll also listen to anything truly have to say - even if she's heard it all before. Though she won't be your lapdog, she will be around to hear your thoughts.
Loves will nod and respond thoughtfully and know interrupt instead of switching truly subject how something she loves to talk about. Part of being in love is just being able to listen.
- Expect to be missed when apart. If you and your loved one are apart, but she still texts you, calls you, or emails you to let you know how much she misses you, then it means she can't imagine his or her life without you.
- Gauge if the person is happy to be around you.
- There's a difference between saying, "I like your new haircut" and "You have the ability to make me feel better no matter what.
Gauge if the person is happy to be around you. This should be true even during a bad day.
See if the person can act naturally around you. Part of being love means being completely open to the other person. If you find yourself seeing a whole different side that the person doesn't show the public, then that may be love. For instance, if your partner is pretty serious or polite in public, but shows a more goofy and silly side when you're alone, then s/he is really opening up to you and loves you.
