Some young children, even at the age of four, five and six, may think that they are in love with each other, and may even tell people that they are some day going to get married, but the older generations might just sit back, laugh, and brush it off thinking that they are only children and what do they know?
These feelings are often referred to as puppy love. These children grow up and enter junior high school where they develop even more feelings that for one reason or another, they think is love. At this age, they are learning about things like feelings, broken hearts, hormones, and even puberty when they get rejected for one reason or another.
In some cities, states, and countries, adults, parents, and educators for whatever reason, have waited too long to properly educate children about the consequences of teenagers having sex, whether it be protected or not. Some cities, states and countries, might be conflicted about who’s responsibility it is to be teaching these children about these subject matters.
More and more teenagers are finding ways to sleep together because their parents are too busy working or the children come from a single family household where the parent is working full time, and there is no one home to see what exactly the teenager is doing. The teenage couple may think that they are in love, and want to some day get married and start a family, but have not been properly educated on using proper precautions and protection if the have decided to have sex before they get married. This is just an accident waiting to happen, and the couple ends up getting pregnant. The teenage mom to be’s hormones will eventually get out of whack and the teenage dad to be might question what he ever saw in the teenage mom to be.
If this happens, the teenage mom to be will more than likely end up alone, depressed, and scared about what her options are and what she is going to do under the circumstances that she has gotten herself into.
There are many ways to know if in fact you are in love, but some people do not know these things until they are well into their thirties if not older. In the next few paragraphs, we will be looking at ways a person might and should be able to tell that they are truly in love and are ready for a committed relationship with someone, and not just using the other person for a one night stand or a summer fling.
I have always believed in the power of conversation with other people. Ask someone what it’s like to be in love. Maybe you would be similar to their experiences.
The first thing that some people might consider in determining whether or not they are truly in love, is whether or not they can picture themselves with the other person for the rest of their lives. If you truly can picture a future with someone then you just might truly be in love with the person. Take the love test to find out.
If a person wants to spend time with you, and you want to spend time with them, you just might be in love, or at least falling in love. You need to get to know each other and see if you are compatible and have things in common. If you can accept the person the way that they are and love them for who they are without trying to change them, more than likely you are in love.
If a person wants to introduce someone special in their lives to his or her friends and family, this is a pretty good sign that you are in love. This will tell you that they are proud to have you on their arm or by your side.
To some people, love is nothing more than a game whereas to others, love is something to be taken very seriously because they have been in the shoes of the one with the broken heart before and they do not want to be in those shoes again, and they do not wish it upon anyone else for that matter.
Now that you have read through this article, and have learned some of the tools and some of the steps of how do you know you’re in love, ask yourself again, “Am I in love?”
Do you have a clearer vision as to whether or not you are truly in love and know what if anything you are going to do about it if you haven’t already done something about it? Only you can make the choice now as to where you want your relationship to go. You can either end things if you have decided that you really are not in love with someone, or take things to the next level.
