If you are expecting to return the love back as much as you love him/her then it’s not true love. Why can’t you just love that person? Love is neither a business nor a give and takes relationship. How you can think of love when you have so many expectations. Even if he/she doesn’t reply to your text messages, emails or phone calls, why you get hurt? You want to convey your feelings, and you did that. Don’t ever expect that the person will respond it back otherwise it will hurt you for sure.
It never hurts to have some go-to statements or topics you can draw on. However, I find it's hard to remember more than a handful of them at once. There's no need to try to memorize thirty different lines you could use at a party. In the moment you'll probably blank on most of them anyway, or get stuck going through a giant mental list to pick out the best option. If you've only got three choices it's easier to just go with one.
Trying to get a sense of where other people are coming from won't convert you into one of them, or cause you to suddenly endorse all their values. However, when it comes to making conversation with them, it'll probably become simpler. You won't be looking at them like they're an alien, and nothing you have to say could possibly resonate with them.
I don't know if there is a real way to tell if someone is in love without asking them. I don't even think I understand the meaning of love or what it is. I don't believe I have ever been in love so I don't know how to tell you or explain to you anything. What I've heard from my friends is that it’s a feeling of joy of wanting someone to have everything no matter what it does for you. And that you can tell by just looking at a person their entire outlook changes even there appearance changes. I think love is something serious like a disease that everyone wants to catch but when they have it they don’t want its pain at its worst but at its best. It’s like flying.
It’s quite simple. You can tell by the person’s emotions throughout the day. People in love tend to be so happy all the time and it’s a good thing. You can see the smile light up when they get a text from their significant other. You know when someone is in love when they say they get butterflies in their stomach and can’t control it, also when the couple is completely irresistible. I think you can really tell if someone is in love when they support each other, have the ultimate respect, and are just enjoying each other’s company. Love is a beautiful thing that everyone deserves to have, and it’s a special feeling that everyone’s grasps and really takes it to heart. Love is out there.
There isn't really a sure way of knowing if somebody is in love, but one of the signs that many lovers show is that they start acting weird. What I mean by this is that like let’s say before they were mean to you, now all of a sudden start being nice to you, some of them even stops eating. In reality there are endless possibilities of know if someone is in love or not, but the ones that I mentioned are the most common ones.
When I know some one is in love I just know it. When people are in love they can't stop looking in each others eyes and laughing at each others dumbness. I know this because I'm in love when you feel lonely when he's not there. When he says I love you, you feel it when he smiles, you smile. When you always want to be together all the time. When you stay on the phone listening to each other silence. Falling in love makes you do crazy things. I have been in love over a year and six months so I have to say that you will know when you are in love. Love is just a word; when you say it, it is when you show it. When you hold, kiss, smile and support and get upset with him or her you will know. When you do anything for them when they are sick, sad or in trouble. I'm in love with my boyfriend because I know I can't do anything with out him
I re- read your post Sharon. I see you are going to college. That is great. You will surely have a chance to join a gym, a club and meet new friends in class. As I said, just be yourself. You ARE a unique individual. I have travelled all over the world and I can tell you there is every type of person you can imagine out there. Including only one just like you! I have always found that good manners are essential to meeting good people. Let your own common sense be your guide as you mix and mingle. Think for yourself. You will find the one that is right for you. And hit the gym. You will feel better. I still do it after many years. i have not found a husband yet, but I have not settled in a cat. Cats are okay, but not as a sole companion.
In a similar way, toxic persons usually only consider themselves. If the person in question never seems to find time for you (but you are constantly willing to help them), it’s a huge indicator that their time is more important to them. Another way someone only considers themselves is with a lack of concern for your well-being. If you frequently check in on them to see how they’re doing, but they show little to no regard for your state of wellness, it’s likely an unhealthy situation.
Another way toxic persons can be harmful is by always playing the victim. Although these people may be convincing as to why a situation is far worse for them, if someone constantly claims to be the worst affected by life it can be a sign they are not good for you. Someone who is toxic will consistently ask others to give more than they themselves are willing to give.
Another way toxic persons negatively affect our lives is by being greedy. If someone close to you only has regard for what they gain in every situation, you are likely the one who will be constantly shortchanged. This might not bug you at first, but over time, getting the short end of the stick will take its toll.
Whether the severity of the illness is a result of lack of compliance or difficulty in finding a good combination of mood stabilizers, anti-depressants, etc. having a relationship with someone like this will not be easy.
By the same token, I have a heart and believe everyone deserves a fair shake at love. I would encourage this woman to do everything in her power to turn around the depression. As many other people wrote in, there are lots of alternative treatments besides talk therapy and meds.
I’ve seen relationships torn apart by depression, generally where one partner tries to overlook the other partners’ significant issues. But those issues always come back to haunt the couple, the same way you’re still haunted by your own chronic mental health. If you can’t escape it, he can’t either. And that’s not a life that most people are going to voluntarily sign up for.
The Inner Circle really has been a learning process for which I'm grateful. In the meantime, I am enjoying a type of peace and ease in a relationship that I’ve never experienced before. That, in itself, is a tremendous gift to me, and worth its weight in gold.
Sure, they may find certain quirks cute or unique, but they don’t love them; they simply accept them. There are some people who have such habits, tendencies, or thinking patterns that really do make them incompatible with the other person.
A lot of people have midlife crises. Me, I had a quarter-life crisis a few years ago, when I turned 24. There was no impulse purchase involving a red Mustang or electric guitar, but as my iPhone alarm woke me up bright and early for work one morning in my two-bedroom NYC apartment, I pondered, "Do I have everything -- or nothing at all?"
I'd always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed. I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live -- that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life.
