With Valentine's Day approaching, love is everywhere. But how do you know if somebody loves you, or is just saying so?
Love is one of the most talked about subjects all over the world, with people looking for advice on their romantic situations from family and friends, books, and the media. Psychic readings are extremely popular around Valentine’s Day, and there is no better way to get an insight into the deep questions that our love lives have us asking.
The most common love dilemma has to be that of somebody who is unsure how their potential love interest feels about them. Maybe you’ve just met somebody who you’re interested in, and aren’t sure whether they feel the same way? Or perhaps you’ve been in a relationship for a while, and are looking to make the next step, but aren’t sure if your partner is on the same page? People express their feelings in a number of different ways, and sometimes it can be hard to figure out for ourselves how somebody feels about us.
"We assume others show love the same way we do - and if they don’t, we worry it's not there." (Unknown)
The above quote perfectly sums up the fact that everybody is unique, and that we all express our emotions in different ways, and this can be tricky when trying to understand how somebody feels about us, especially if we haven’t known that person long and are still in the process of learning how they communicate their emotions.
“People sometimes say that you must believe in feelings deep inside, otherwise you’d never be confident of things like ‘My wife loves me’. But this is a bad argument. There can be plenty of evidence that somebody loves you. All through the day when you are with somebody who loves you, you see and hear lots of little tidbits of evidence, and they all add up. It isn’t purely inside feeling, like the feeling that priests call revelation. There are outside things to back up the inside feeling: looks in the eye, tender notes in the voice, little favors and kindnesses; this is all real evidence.” - Richard Dawkins
‘Actions speak louder than words’ may be an overused phrase, but it is said so often simply because it is true; if you want to know how somebody feels, you need to study what they do, and not what they say. Somebody who tells you they love and care about you but does nothing to show it is pretty hard to believe. It is often easy to say that you love somebody, but people show us how they really feel by how they behave.
Somebody cares about you if they want to spend time with you with no agenda. Not every moment in life can be exciting, and if somebody is happy to just be with you in those quiet moments, just for the sake of being with you, even if you’re just doing nothing, they care. If they’re happy to sit and talk about everything and nothing for hours, join you in the mundane, everyday chores, sit and watch bad TV, or just simply lie in silence for a while, they are showing they care about you.
“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.” - Katharine Hepburn
Somebody loves you if they go out of their way to make you happy, or put your happiness before their own. They care about your needs and wants, and would do anything to see you smile. When we’re in love, we act selflessly, and would gladly sacrifice our own happiness for that of the other person, because when they’re happy, we’re happy.
“Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.” - Bob Marley
Somebody loves you if they celebrate your little victories. They find joy in the things you are proud of, and they are proud too. They don’t put you down, they help you celebrate your victories, commiserate with you on your failures, and help you grow. If somebody loves you, they will want you to be the best you can be, and will want to help you succeed in any way they can. They will support you in whatever you choose to do, and they will cheer you on while you do it.
“We love the things we love for what they are.” - Robert Frost
Somebody loves you if they allow you to simply be you. They love all of you, even the things they shouldn’t, and they allow you to be completely comfortable when you are around them. We are all different, and not everybody will agree on everything, but these differences are to be celebrated, not feared. Love means no judgement, and acceptance, even if we don’t necessarily understand.
If you are questioning the feelings of somebody you are involved with, take some time to seriously consider these things. Do you feel comfortable being yourself around them, or are there things you feel you have to hold back for fear they will not understand or accept them? Do they find any excuse to spend time with you, or does there always have to be something to do? Do they make you feel good about yourself, and make you feel like you’re growing as a person because of them? All of these are good indicators that somebody really loves you.
