What Are the Signs of True Love?

If knowing it when you see it was a truism, gifs wouldn't loop endlessly. Even when you like something right away, you don't always notice all of the great features instantly.

That's one of the reasons spotting the signs of true love proves difficult. You expect yourself to spot them immediately and not to read into things.

Of course, being a person, reading into things is second nature, and the chemicals that form bonds take time to develop. 

Worry not! The signs are out there and you can confidently lock them down!

The Signs of True Love

Of course, everyone has personal tastes and the form that a particular sign takes will differ from person to person. Subjectivity comes on top of the broader category. Everyone likes food, not everyone isn't avocados (somehow).

They Push You

Do your conversations center around what more the two of you could do? Do you comment on how they can improve and ask for the same? 

Being challenged and pushed to be a better you is an important sign of love. it is a hope that they have for you and an ability to see in you something you might not see in yourself. In thinking about your soulmate you want someone that helps you be a better you, so apply that logic to them as well.

They're Authentic

A lot of dating is about showing a best face, a sort of runway aesthetic without all the behind-the-scenes clutter. 

When being with someone makes you skip a heartbeat, you want that to be without effort. You want that to be your authentic self and theirs as well. 

When you find you can be you and not put on that best, brave face then you know it is love and not some trophy you are fighting to hold.

They Take Another Step

Even with love at first sight as the springboard, a long-term relationship takes effort and maintenance. 

An important sign of true love is when they do one more thing for you than asked or expected. When they meet your need and expectation and then go a little beyond.

This can be an unsolicited compliment, a task normally left for you, or an anticipation of a need. 

When your love interest seems to know you better than you know you and helps out in ways you rarely do for yourself, that's when you know it's real.

Future Talk

Finally, do you and they talk about the future a lot? Is the future a place you see yourself working together with them to create and build and live?

If you find that you talk as much about the tomorrow version of your relationship as the today version, that's a sign.

Imagining where else you could be, what else you could do, this type of emotional play is about expanding boundaries and space. Of course, you want to live in the moment but if that moment makes you think of the future, it's a sure sign that things are working and you want them to continue to work.
