Do you ever wonder whether you’ve found true love or not? True love manifests itself in many ways. In this article, you’ll find 12 of them.

They Listen

According to the MOspace Institutional Repository, “many of us spend 70 to 80 percent of our time in some form of communication. Of that time, we spend about… 45 percent listening.” Someone who really loves you will do exactly that; they will take the time to listen to you.

They Are Faithful

Someone who has eyes for you and only you shows that they are truly in love with you. This person will not flirt with others or make suggestive remarks to other people. They are not interested in looking inappropriately at anyone. They are faithful even when you are apart.

They Engage In Conversation

Someone who really loves you won’t just listen to the things you have to say; rather, they will show themselves engaged when conversing with you. They will do this by actively asking questions and looking you in the eyes when you speak. They won’t always be looking to change the subject.

They Text You

The figures from EarthWeb show that “around 23 billion to 27 billion texts are sent per day all over the world.” Someone who loves you will send you many messages every day. They will be the first person to text you in the morning and the last person to text you at night.

They Show Gratitude

You will know that you have found true love if the person you are with shows you their gratitude. They don’t take you or the things you do for granted. They honestly express their thanks and are constantly looking for ways to repay the favor.

They Are Honest

“Honesty is the foundation for trust in a relationship, and trust is necessary for a relationship to function and thrive,” says MindBodyGreen. You can be confident that you have found true love when your partner is honest with you. They can speak frankly with you without being rude.

They Call You

The statistics from SellCell show that “across the world, we make a huge 13.5 billion phone calls every day.” Someone who is in love with you will be making a lot of phone calls. They will call you to see if you are okay and just to hear your voice.

They Give You the Credit

Does the person you are with often give you credit for the things they have done? Then this person really loves you. They love you so much that the most important thing to them is making sure you look good in front of others. They will do this even if it means they receive less of the glory.

They Defend You

A person who is in love with you will always have your back and defend you whenever necessary. So when others, including your in-laws, begin to speak negatively about you, they will stick up for you. They will always highlight your good qualities to others.

They Compliment You

Life Lovers Magazine gives reasons as to why couples must compliment one another. “Your compliment can make them feel much better about themselves and will boost their self-esteem,” they say. A person who is very committed to a relationship will always compliment their partner.

They Love the Real You

Someone who is really in love with you will not try to get you to change things about yourself. They will be in love with the real you, with no frills and no fluff. You can just be yourself when you’re with this person, and you aren’t embarrassed to let your hair down.

They Are Reliable

If someone tells you they are in love with you, you will know it is true if they prove to be a reliable person. This kind of person is there for you when you need them to be. They do their best to never let you down.
