When it comes to matters of the heart, we’ve been told that the best thing is to trust our gut. We often hear other people’s stories about how they met their true love and how they immediately knew that they were the person they were meant to spend their lives with.
When we look at Hollywood’s portrayal of love and romance when the lady finds her Prince Charming her heart starts beating fast, she has butterflies in her stomach, and she gets in a euphoric state of mind.
But, is this real? Or is it only a Hollywood-made-up portrayal of love only for money-making purposes? Is love really a drug?
A study from Rutgers University studied how love impacts the human body, and what chemical reactions occur when we feel that we love someone. They compared these changes with those that occur when someone feels the rush that happens when they take drugs. The connection was undeniable.
So, being in love really feels like we are ‘high on drugs’ because the euphoric state we are in consumes us entirely.
Here are 12 bodily signs that are indicators you’ve finally met a person with whom you can experience bigger things.
1. YOUR INTUITION TELLS YOU
Gut feeling is real, and you should listen to it. It is a great indicator of whether you are in a good and positive relationship that has a future to look forward to, or you are just stuck in a rut and you are only wasting your time. If you have a gnawing feeling that something doesn’t add up and is not right – pay attention and don’t ignore your feelings.
2. YOU ARE MOTIVATED
Ask yourself this: When you are with your partner, do they make you feel excited and ready to take on the world? Or, do they make you feel drained and insecure? The one will inspire you, they will encourage you, and motivate you to become the best version of yourself.
3. YOU ARE TRUE TO YOURSELF
When you are with someone who loves and supports you through all the good and bad things that life would inevitably throw at you, then you can experience your true, authentic self. You won’t have to hide your true self, pretending you are someone you are not, because this person would genuinely value and love the real you.
4. YOU ARE CALM AND RELAXED
We can all agree on the fact that all relationships need work. However, when you meet the right person, everything will just fall into place and you won’t feel like you are ‘working’ for the relationship. Everything would be effortless, and you will feel calm and peaceful.
5. YOU NEED THEM
You don’t just enjoy spending time with them, you need them to be around you. When you are not together you feel a void inside you like something is missing. You feel an inexplicable need to be with them and it is something that you physically feel within your body.
6. YOU ARE MORE WARM AND AFFECTIONATE
When you find yourself to be affectionate, warm, and vulnerable whenever you are with them, it is a sign that you are comfortable and secure in their presence. On the other hand, if you turn cold and close off when you are with them, it is a clear sign that you should move on.
7. YOU ARE OPTIMISTIC
With the right person, you will optimistically look to the future and be happy and excited about it. You both have planned many wonderful things. You believe in the future of your relationship and this creates feelings of enthusiasm and true happiness.
8. YOU MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES
Your partner will undoubtedly influence your life in a great way. But, what matters is if that person impacts your life positively or negatively. Someone who truly cares for you will always influence you to make healthier choices for yourself. For instance, they would inspire you to eat healthier, to be more physically active, or undertake a new hobby.
9. YOU EXPERIENCE TRUE EMPATHY
When you truly love someone, you feel a connection with them that goes far beyond the physical. You both connect on a deep emotional level. You feel what the other person is feeling, and you both make efforts to make your partner emotionally happy and fulfilled. This genuine empathy from both sides is a sign that you have the right person by your side.
10. YOUR PALMS SWEAT AND YOUR CHEEKS FLUSH
When your partner makes you feel excited and looking forward to meeting them, you can experience some things which are similar to anxiety; such as, your heart beating faster, your cheeks flushing, or your hands sweating.
11. YOU ARE SEXUALLY AROUSED AND EXCITED
Sex is a very important aspect of every relationship. If you find yourself getting aroused only by thinking about your partner, or whenever you are with them – your body is actually approving them.
12. YOU ARE RELIEVED FROM PAIN
If you feel some kind of pain, and this pain is relieved by the thought of your partner and your relationship – it is a clear sign that your partner influences you in a good way. This relief usually comes from the euphoria while you are thinking about them, which acts as a natural painkiller.
