you know your in love..

when you email them and you wait all night long for his reply and when he does reply you read it ovre and over again.

when he talks to you about other gurls and that makes you angry.. its jealousy.. it all comes with the pacakage.

when he thinks your the prettiest person to walk this earth yet you think he needs to get his eyes tested

when he's willing to do anything for you..

when your willing to do anything for him

AskEve agony auntTo love a person, first and foremost you must KNOW them personally. Lots of teenagers say they "love" a celebrity or are "in love" with them but of course this can't be, they love the idea of who they are but if they've never met them then it's just a crush or infatuation.

Real love on the other hand is very different. If you truly love someone then you respect them for who they are, warts and all. You want to look after them and protect them, you look out for them and put them first. You feel happy and content in their company and enjoy being together. Above all you can be yourself when you're with them. You never try to be anything more or someone different because you don't need to. You don't have to impress them to win them over and you never have to play games to make them like you. There is trust and understanding on both sides and you feel safe and secure within yourself. You would never undermine them, they are not someone in whose company you feel threatened or small. They are someone with whom you can share your innermost thoughts and worries, a person with whom you should be able to share anything, they are your friend and your confidante and you can be honest with them at all times, you can tell them anything because they love you as you are.

He/she may be someone who is the direct opposite of you. On the surface you may seem like chalk and cheese. Whilst you may be loud and forceful they may be quiet and thoughtful. You may come from different backgrounds, different countries or be twenty years apart but this doesn't matter. There is an unspoken language between you, the spiritual connection between you both is so deep that you seem to be able to communicate without even speaking to each other. You are happy to lie in silence together. You feel sometimes that there is no need to talk because you feel that you know what they are thinking anyway. You feel so close to them that sometimes you think you could almost read their mind. You know when they are worried, in pain, or sad just by looking at them. It is as though there exists some kind of telepathy between you.

Real love stands the test of time, you laugh together, cry together and even have your differences but this doesn't matter, you love that person AND their failings. You come together in a crisis and work through things together and this just brings you closer. You take their feelings into consideration in all that you do. They are the most important person in your life!

you know your in love when nothing make sense anymore. everything makes you think of that special someone. as soon as you step away from them you miss them. when you realize why you love them or how much you love tem you cry. you can't imagine being with anybody else. you can see your future and it's with them. when talking to them you don't want to talk to anyone else. you just want it to be you and that special person.

A female reader, Pooh-bear United States +, writes (6 February 2007):

It's kind of hard to tell when your in love. If you can't stop thinking about her and all you do dream about her, then you just might be in love. If you can't go a day without seeing her or having her in your arms you might be in love. It depends. Sometimes you might think you're in love but you're really in lust. Being in love is just a gut feeling you may have. If you would do anything to protect her then you get my drift. Do you think about marrying her and building a family with her? Ask her if she feels the same way. You just might find the answer you're looking for.

you know you're in love when you will do anything to make life easier for that person. To stand by him/her through anything. And it's breaks your heart to see the other person hurt. You know you're in love when everything changes when you are with that person...

kenny agony auntYou know you are in love when you care for that person more than you care about anything, more than yourself. You want to be with them 24/7, and when you are not with them your counting down the minutes till you see them again. You get massive butterflies racing round in your stomach, and tongue tied when talking to them.

Its important to know the difference between love and lust, you can sometimes think you are in love, but infact its lust.

Good luck

mel_22 agony auntI think you will know when your in love by the feeling you get in your tummy everytime you see the person and that you think of them when you wake and when you go to sleep. A true love is like a best friend and a soul-mate the best feeling you could imagine xx
