How do you know when you're in love?Posted on: December 17, 2012 13:53:19
It is a question that many people ask but few actually know the answer to. What is love?
If you take the question literally, the dictionary definition is an "intense feeling of deep affection", whereby a person feels a "deep romantic or sexual attachment".
But, when it comes to knowing what love actually feels like, it can be almost impossible to know.
According to Google, 'what is love?' was the most searched phrase typed into the search engine this year, suggesting that many of us are still in the dark when it comes to knowing whether or not we have actually found the one and what it feels like once we have.
UK singles are already aware of all the stereotypical signs that someone is in love. Like the films, lovesick men and women are often portrayed to be hopeless individuals driven to distraction by the person of their dreams, unable to eat or sleep, and who have butterflies in their stomach every time their eyes meet across the room.
While that might happen for some lucky Brits when they find love, for many, it isn't as simple as that.
Often it can be difficult to know whether it is love or lust you are experiencing when you have met someone new.
Lust is usually focused on a person's looks rather than their personality and can be quite an intense relationship from the early days.
Quite often the pairing can fizzle out after a short period of time because the relationship isn't strong enough once the initial sexual attraction dies down, meaning you were merely lovers rather than soulmates.
Signs that it is much more serious than that and you are in fact falling in love can be revealed if you feel a deep connection between you both.
If you can pass hours talking to each other, are completely comfortable in one another's company and when you imagine the future, the other person is in it - you could be falling in love.
Robert Sternberg, a US psychologist, developed a theory that suggested love can be broken down into three parts - passion, intimacy and commitment - to form a triangle.
He said that "passion is the quickest to develop and the quickest to fade. Intimacy develops more slowly, and commitment more gradually still".
