Only if someone could tell you if it is love or infatuation. At times, we forget to observe the small little signs in our relationships that could help us find true love and avoid another heart break. I would say, when it’s true love you truly feel different. It’s nothing like any relationship you’ve ever been in. But when you are really infatuated with someone, your mind does get clouded. You are constantly fighting with your own self. You often want the person you are infatuated to, to be the love of your life.

Don’t worry, we all want that but many a times we end up making huge mistakes by giving too much love to someone who was just infatuated to us or vice versa. So here are a few things that will help you think through.


I realised this when I fell in love. With my previous relationships, I was always evaluating how much I did for them and how much they did for me. It left me and my exes in a doubtful position. They would always second guess my efforts and I would second guess theirs because that’s what you start to do when you don’t truly love someone. Love is utter trust and belief that your partner loves you and that even if it’s less but whatever they do is enough for you.
When you are attached to someone, not replying to your text would bug you. Yet, in love, you would not carry any insecurities regarding the time you give them and the time they give you.
