Evaluation Of The Circumstances
“Am I in love?” is a question that many people in a relationship ask themselves. It is a common query. The reason why we ask ourselves that question is to determine what our actions should be going forward. Although a romantic relationship is not the same as a business relationship it has many of the same characteristics. 1) investment (of time and resources) 2) risk 3) commitment 4) evaluation of growth potential In much the same way as participants in a business relationship determine if it is worth their time, money and effort to be involved in a business venture, individuals involved in a romantic relationship do their own evaluation of their situation. So they probe, examine and weigh the qualities of their relationship to find out if they really are in love or just passing time.
You Think About Them All The Time
When you’re awake and when you are asleep. When you’re working or when you are working out. When you’re eating and when you are just relaxing they are in your thoughts. All day and all night you just can’t stop thinking about them.
Its a reflex reaction. An involuntary process. You do it without even trying. It just happens automatically. You can’t control it no matter how hard you try.
You’re hooked and you can’t get off of the line. They are ingrained in your thoughts and there is nothing you can do about it but go with the flow.
You Feel A Flutter In Your Heart Whenever You Are In Their Presence
Whenever they come into the room you get a special feeling inside that is undeniably love. Your heart starts to flutter, your pulse starts to race, you get a tiggling sensation all over you. Euphoria takes over and you feel like you are floating on a cloud above the earth. Your feet are no longer touching the ground. They dangle beneathyou as you carelessly drift along on an invisible cushion of ecstasy wondering if you will ever come back down and in the back of your mind you hope you never do
You Can’t Imagine Your Life Without Them
You know and remember whay your life was like before you met them but now you can’t see your life without. It feels as if they are now a part of you and if they were not there a piece of you would be missing.
They are entwined in your life, your thoughts, your actions and your decisions. they are an integral part of everything you do and think. They are to you like a finger is to a hand, a toe is too a foot and a pumping heart is to a living body.
They are you and you are them.
You are inseparable in thought, action and feelings.
Thinking About Them Brings A Smile To Your Face
Just the thought of them makes you smile. The joy that they bring to your life just makes you gush with happiness.
Thinking about the way they smile or laugh, the way they brush their hair away from their face or just the way they curl up in your arms makes you grin from ear to ear.
They Are The First Thing On Your Mind When You Wake And The Last Thing On Your Mind When You Fall Asleep
As soon as you open your eyes in the morning there they are in your thoughts. before you have even brushed your teeth, combed your hair or had your morning coffee there they are invading your mental processes like a welcomed guest.
You can’t help it. It just happens on its own with no help or coaxing from you.
Then at the end of the day after a long, exhausting journey through another 24 hours just before your head hits the pillow there they are again. Floating through your mind like a Genie on a magical carpet enveloping your thoughts as you gently fall off to sleep.
The Thought Of Losing Them In Any Way Is Unbearable
Just the thought of losing them brings a tear to your eye and a pain in your heart. The thought is so unbearable that you want to get it out of your mind as quickly as you
The thought of losing them brings such misery to your heart that you just want it to stop and hope that you never have that experience.
You weep inside thinking about the emptiness that would accompany such an event and your whole world grows very dark.
The thought is devastating and you hope it never becomes reality.
Your Heart Is Lonely When They Are Not Around You
When they are absent fom your presence you feel like a part of you is missing. You feel like your world has no one in it except you. Even though there may be people all around you, you still feel alone like you’re the only person in the world.
The sun loses its shine and the moon loses its glow. Everything seems dull like you’re looking through life through a thin veil.
All has lost its luster because that special someone is not around
The Final Analysis.
If you have experienced any, all or some of the above you know what love feels like and you know it is a wonderful feeling.
As with any venture there is risk involved but what is reward without risk? A fantasy that does not exist.
In order to have gain you must be willing to risk loss. If not, then life holds very little promise for you to experience the bliss of true love.
