There are times when your heart beats faster as soon as you think about someone. You think about that person all the time and when you are with that person you want time to stop. Are you in love? Has the love bug suddenly bit you too? Are you falling head over heels over someone? Falling in love is one of the greatest experiences in the world and it is also tough.

Often, you never realize your deep seated hidden emotions and your love interest moves on because you never showed any signs that reciprocate you feeling the same way. The following 5 signs are sometimes what a person feels when he or she is in love.

You find yourself staring at someone

If there is someone in your life who you love looking at when he/she is sleeping, eating, having fun or just sitting in a couch, you are probably in love. You find yourself staring at that person whenever you can steal a glance and can’t seem to take your eyes off of him/her. When you are in love, you involuntarily can’t stop looking at the object of your affection.

Feeling high without being intoxicated

When you are in love and especially when you start feeling it for the first time or after a long time, you will find yourself experiencing a sense of euphoria all the time. Being in love is like being on drugs, wherein you are always high on energy, you rarely sleep and your heart beats really fast. Love is known to increase the production of dopamine and norepinephrine in your body which gives you a sense of “high”.

Checking your phone constantly

If you find yourself checking your phone every 10 seconds wondering if “someone” has sent you a text or if you missed a call, you are probably in love with the person who you are expecting the text or call from; unless it is an emergency and you are waiting to get a text or call from a friend or family who may have met with an accident. People who are just falling in love are always wary of their phone. If not checking for calls or texts, they will check if the phone is on vibrate/mute. You will find yourself reaching for your pockets to check your phone every 2 minutes or so.

Listening to romantic songs more often

You may have been a metal head or someone who only listened to hard core rap or hip-hop, but if you find yourself jamming to that new Taylor Swift tune, you are probably in love. Being in love generally enables you to connect more with the softer side of your persona which is why you start rocking out to romantic ballads and romantic comedy movies more often.

Taking better care of grooming and personal hygiene

People, who are in love, start noticing themselves more often and grow more particular about their personal hygiene. You will probably find yourself visiting the dentist more periodically and your corner salon more often. You will also find yourself hitting the gym or at least working out at home more often.

If you feel that you are doing or feeling the aforementioned things, you are probably in love and it is time that you start acknowledging it and try to tell the person who you love how you feel about them.
