You wait your whole life to fall in love and when it happens you second-guess the experience. Suddenly, you find yourself wondering if what you’re feeling is love at all. There’s no rulebook to turn to, so how can you be sure?

Look for these 10 signs that you are really in love:

#1. Best part of your day

#2. Missing him

That visceral feeling you get when you really miss someone exists when you’re truly in love. It may surprise you at first, especially if you’ve just seen him the night before, but take it as a good sign that your feelings are real.

#3. Real you

Everyone compromises things about themselves in the beginning of a connection. It’s human nature to want to do things differently to impress the guy you life. You’ll notice as you fall deeper in love that those things won’t matter anymore. You’ll simply behave natural and be your real self.

#4. First on your mind

If he’s the first thing you think about when you wake up and the first factor you consider when making decisions, then you know you’ve got it bad for him. True love makes us think of our person before anything else.

#5. Inspiration

Do you find that every song on the radio reminds you of him? Maybe you’ve even created a special playlist that puts you in a romantic mood. This is a sure sign of a heart in love and there’s nothing to feel shy about, share it with him and he’ll appreciate the gesture!

#8. Priority

We also choose to put the people who matter to us most first when it comes to planning and decision-making. If your guy is at the top of your priority list, it’s a bright indication that you love him.

#9. Relaxed communication

Feeling the need to constantly text and call isn’t necessarily a sign of connection, it can mean that you’re not fully comfortable. When you start to notice that you and your guy check in less throughout the day, but the love sustains, you’re in good territory.
