Are you attracted and connected to your partner physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually?
Does the thought of your partner make you happy?
Do you feel happy about yourself when you're with your partner and without them?
Are you free to be your true self in your relationship?
Do you like who are in your relationship?
Do you love yourself just as much as you love your partner?
Do you feel good about who your partner is?
If your partner were to lose their material possessions, would you still love them and be with them?
Do you appreciate your partner and their quirks?
Are you happy for your partner when good things come their way?
When difficulties come up for your partner, are you there to support them?
Do you feel good about the way you and your partner interact and resolve issues?
Do you choose in favor of your relationship; are your decisions for the greater good of our relationship?
When you have good or bad news, or a challenging situation, is your partner the first person you call?
When you have issues in your relationship, is your initial response is to resolve them and not leave?
When your relationship isn’t flowing as smoothly as you’d like, are you able to have faith and trust that things are and will be fine?
Do you feel content and fulfilled in your relationship?
Do you know that your partner feels the same way about you as you do about them (i.e. we both like and love each other)?
Is your partner the only person you'd rather be with?
Do you mostly approach your relationship from a place of love?
If you've answered "YES" to the majority of the questions then it very likely that you are in love. The bottom line is: if you’re in love with the right person, love won’t be or feel so hard. You will feel uplifted and loved for your true self. You will know how your partner feels about you. Your relationship will flow with more ease and when difficulties arise, they will be resolved respectfully. If you're experiencing love to be hard, painful and uncertain, and asking, "Am I in love?", you are not in love.
