Does love really fade away? What being in love means? How to know if you are still in love? Questions galore. Keep reading further to find some answers.
How do you know you love someone? No, it's not love when you fall in it each day, each week, and every time with a different person! True love is when you fall in it, with the same person, again and again... it's true when the person you are in love with means the world to you.
For some, love is physical closeness, for some it is in being together and spending life together. But that's not all what love is about. Sacrificing what you badly want, for the person you are in love with, is love. We all yearn for love. Each of us wants a trustworthy companion, true?
That 'someone' who accepts you the way you are, who understands you more than you do. Someone, who is always there for you. Love is unconditional, the person whom you love becomes your life. So what do you think, are you in love with someone...?

Are You Still in Love?

Are you in love? How to know if you are 'still' in love? It's sometimes difficult to decide who is the one made for you. It is hard to accept sometimes, that the person you love is your soulmate. Ask yourself and see what your heart has to say. Are you still in love? Do you feel happy for no particular reason these days?
Does the mirror tell you of a glow on your face? Do you smile to yourself quite often these days? Have you suddenly realized that life is just so beautiful? Do you really feel you can't live without that 'someone' in your life? Well then, you are in love... yes!
They say, 'true love has no happy ending, because it never ends'. True that is. True love lasts for a lifetime, or probably even longer.
Is there something that makes you wonder 'do I still love him/her'. What is it after all? Is it lack of that spark, that magic, that chemistry you shared? Let's make things simpler for you. Give an honest 'yes' or 'no' for each of the following. If it's a 'yes' for a majority of them, well, yes, you are still in love then..
  • He/she is the last person you think of before you sleep. The person is the last you want to say good night to.

You're still the one I run to

The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night... ~ Shania Twain
