What is True Love? 22 Signs of Love to Know if Your Love is Real

what is true love signs of love

Is love real? What is true love? How can you tell if what you’re feeling is love? Look for these signs of true love, and understand what it truly is.

So what is true love really? Can you recognize the signs of true love the minute you see it? Understanding love is like understanding the air we breathe. We know it’s all around us, and yet we can’t see it. So is true love even real? You’ll know exactly how to recognize the real kind of love right here.

Is it love at first sight real?

This is something most people misunderstand, and we need to dispel this myth right away.

True love isn’t felt in a heartbeat or in a second glance. True love takes time to take shape. And contrary to popular belief, love at first sight isn’t really love at all. In fact, love at first sight is nothing but an infatuation. It’s a strong surge of romantic and sexual emotions that overwhelm you.

Before you wonder what true love is all about and what the signs of true love really are, you need to understand that it’s very important to take things slow in a relationship if you want to ensure its success.

When you first start dating someone or fall for someone at first sight, what you experience isn’t love. As much as you feel like you’re head over heels in love, you really aren’t. You’re just experiencing the first stage of love, a small part in the stages of love known as the infatuation stage. [Read: The 9 stages of love all couples have to go through]

The definition of true love – What is true love then?

If true love isn’t about falling head over heels in love with someone, what is it then?

True love, ironically, can’t be defined. It’s the kind of love many of us chase after, but few truly find or realize it until it’s too late. So what is true love really?

True love is best defined as the kind of love and affection you have for someone that isn’t bound by the laws of human behavior.

Human behavior is simple to understand. When someone hurts you, you get angry with them. When someone gets lucky or gets a better job, you get jealous of them. And when someone shatters your ego or humiliates you, you seek revenge from them. This is human behavior, because these traits are ingrained within us.

But when you experience true love towards someone, your primal instincts and behavior change only towards this person. True love transcends typical human behavior. It makes you a better human being towards a special someone. [Read: What does true love feel like? 20 feelings that best describe real love]

When does one experience true love?

True love always takes time to bloom. What you experience in the first few months or even the first year or so of a relationship is infatuation and sexual attraction. Some even call it the “honeymoon period” of the relationship. It’s when you can’t keep your hands off each other, can’t stop thinking of each other, and can’t imagine living without each other!

As the bursts of infatuation start to fade with the first few arguments and the first few misunderstandings, that’s when love starts to enter the picture. And this is where most couples start to drift away emotionally, or even end up breaking up because of incompatibilities.

If you’re in a relationship where both of you truly understand each other and feel compatible with each other, and most importantly, love each other, chances are, you’re experiencing true love already. [Read: Honeymoon phase – How long before your the sizzle of infatuation fades away?]

Experiencing true love in your life

Is true love a once in a lifetime experience? Not really. You can experience them many times over, and with many people at the same time. You can experience true love with your spouse or your lover, your children and any other person you’re attached to in your life.

But true love too, can fade with time. For most of us, our first love is the first time we would have experienced the purest form of true love. We aren’t afraid to let this special someone deep into our heart and we aren’t afraid to experience heartbreak because we still don’t know what heartbreak feels like. We’re fearless in love and we love passionately with all our hearts.

But when the first romance dies, the true love we had for our first partner too eventually fades, even if it takes years and several new relationships to overcome. [Read: How your first love affects all your future relationships]

And as we enter into more relationships, most of us split into two groups. One that believes in true romantic love and the other group that convinces itself that true love isn’t real. The kind of relationships you’ve had in your lifetime defines a big part in your understanding of, and expectations from, true love.

And if you’re wondering whether true love and romantic love are the same, it really isn’t, even though we almost always associate true love with romantic love. True love is love in its purest form, while romantic love needs sexual attraction to stay alive.

True love can’t be forced

True love has to be experienced naturally and wholeheartedly. You can’t fake true love no matter how hard you try. If a couple fails to pass the test of compatibility in their infatuation stage, it’s pretty hard for both of them to ever experience true love. [Read: 50 relationship questions to test your real compatibility instantly]

On the other hand, if both partners can understand each other and relate to each other, they’ll start to love each other’s company and start to become inseparable. And eventually, this bond will turn into a pure and selfless love that we call true love. [Read: How to stay in love forever and keep love alive in your romance]

The 22 biggest signs of true love in a perfect romance

True love may be hard to define, but the signs to read true love can be clearly seen in every perfect, loving relationship. If you’re in a relationship and want to know if you’re experiencing the purest form of love, use these simple signs of true love to find out for yourself.

#1 Give and take in love. You give to the relationship wholeheartedly, without any desire or expectations of getting something back in return from your partner to justify your actions. You don’t give your partner something, in the hope that you get something back in return. But just the thought of doing something nice for this person fills your heart with happiness. [Read: 15 signs of a taker in a relationship – Are you a giver or a taker?]

#2 They fill you with pure happiness. Just watching this special person smile or laugh out loud fills you with intense happiness, even if you’re suffering or having a hard day.

This may sound pretty hard to imagine for someone who’s not experienced true, blissful love. But when you truly love someone deeply, the empathy you feel towards them make you experience the same feelings of joy or pain they’re experiencing.

how to know if it is love

#3 Pain and anger. You get terribly hurt when your lover upsets you, but their actions never anger you. You may get annoyed or frustrated now and then momentarily, but you just can’t stay mad at them for long because staying mad or giving them the silent treatment hurts you more. [Read: The effective way to give someone the silent treatment in a relationship]

#4 Support them through thick and thin. Your partner will have dreams and hobbies. If you’re truly in love with them, you’ll support their desires, so long as they’re not harmful to you or anyone else. Even if you don’t fully understand their dreams, you still cheer them on and support them to achieve their goals.

#5 You care for them. It’s unconditional love. You care for them no matter what happens. Through injury, illness, or even just hard emotional times, you’re by their side.

This isn’t something that’s easy to do, even when you unconditionally love someone. Your partner may end up going through really hard times that’ll be difficult for you to stick through. But if your love for each other holds strong through it all, that’s true love.

#6 It’s putting away your pride to make things right. You’re going to have disagreements now and then. Any couple that doesn’t have disagreements at some point are either both lying or they’re not truly in love. Generally, the whole point of an argument is to win. But when you love someone, you don’t argue with them to win, but to understand their point of view.

And if you truly do love them, and you realize you’re wrong, you’ll bite the bullet, swallow your pride and apologize to them and learn from the disagreement. [Read: 23 do’s and don’ts to remember when arguing in a relationship]

#7 You make secret sacrifices for them. You make sacrifices for their happiness or well-being, even if they may never realize it. A relationship based on true love is a partnership of two people who are givers.

You may be a taker with most people, but when you love someone truly, you’ll find yourself turning into a giver who takes pleasure in pleasing your partner in little ways.

#8 The right effort. You go to great lengths and make an effort to improve the relationship, and play a conscious part in trying to please your partner and make them feel loved and special. [Read: How to be more romantic – 15 gestures that’ll make anyone melt]

#9 You show your love through your gestures. You can’t expect love to last if you’re never putting in any effort. That fire won’t stay lit unless you stoke it and add something to help it burn. That something is your affection.

When you’re in true love, you make sure your partner knows how much you love them, through words and through gestures. [Read: The 25 sweetest, romantic gestures for everyday life]

#10 You can’t ever hurt them. When you’re truly in love with someone, you can’t even imagine hurting them, emotionally or physically. Payback and revenge is a strong human instinct, but true love makes you completely selfless towards them.

#11 You make an effort even on your worst days. You’re going to have bad days. Some of those bad days won’t have anything to do with your significant other. It’ll be easy to lash out at them in anger simply because they’re there.

True love is about making sure you’re trying to be loving even when you feel far from it. This is really hard when you’d rather mope and seethe in silence. But when you love someone, you may turn to them to comfort you, but you’ll never want to turn your life’s frustrations towards them.

#12 You keep your promises. When you make a promise to them, you stick to your word even if this person will never find out if you broke that promise. When you experience true love, your moral conscience becomes very strong when it comes to this one special person. And your word turns to oak. You stick to your principles, and do everything you possibly can to keep any promises you made to the one you love. [Read: 15 real #relationshipgoals most couples have no idea about]

#13 You lift them up when they’re down. You love your significant other. You want to make sure they’re happy and therefore, when they’re feeling down, you want to help cheer them up. This means you’ll try and try hard to make them feel better when they’re down.

#14 You become selfless. True love is not selfish. When your significant other is having a hard time, you put your own needs aside to help them. Of course, your partner should do the same for you too.

It’s not easy to be selfless, especially when you have a hard day yourself. but just the thought of making your partner feel better, makes you feel better.

#15 We. In a perfect relationship, it’s good to have your own space to grow as individuals. But at the same time, if you truly love your partner, you’d see them as a very big part of your life. When you think of your future, you can’t help but see them close by your side. [Read: How to give space in a relationship and come closer]

#16 You share their burden. And you do that even if you don’t really have to. You can’t bear to see this special someone suffering. If they’re dealing with some issue, you’re always willing to offer them a helping hand even when you have your own difficulties to look into.

#17 You love them for their flaws. Everyone has flaws. Your partner will definitely have flaws. True love isn’t about being blind to those things. Instead, it’s about loving those aspects of who they are, anyways.

If your significant other is always forgetful, you might get frustrated sometimes but overall, you’ll learn to love that about them. It’ll be a cute quirk instead of a hindrance. That’s what true love is.

#18 You remember the little things. There will be a lot of stuff you’ll learn about your significant other. True love is about remembering the small, but very important, details. It’s about knowing they hate pepper on their food and making sure the waiter takes down the order right.

It’s about knowing their dog’s birthday because that animal is one of the best things in their life. Making an effort to know the small things and show that you’ve been paying attention is what true love is about.  [Read: 13 very powerful, yet small gestures that show how much you love someone]

#19 It’s wanting the best for them even if it means less for you. Some people won’t be happy with you. It’s just the truth, as hard as that is to accept. If it’s true love you feel for them, you’ll want the best for them even if that means you’ll be unhappy.

I’m not saying you should give in to someone else’s will and turn into their slave just because you love them. This means that you’re willing to give up on a few things if that’ll make your partner’s life happier or better in some way.

#20 Pride and jealousy. You beam with pride when they achieve something, even if it’s the same thing you failed at. You may feel jealous of a friend who outdid you, but when you love someone, jealousy never enters the picture. [Read: How to stop being jealous of someone else’s success]

#21 Suffering. You’d be willing to suffer, just to see them happy. Of course, while this is indeed a sign of true, unconditional love, you still have to make sure your partner doesn’t ever take these gestures for granted. And if it’s true, mutual love, you’d know deep in your bones that your partner would do the same for you too.

#22 Their perspective. Everything you do, you keep your lover in mind and think from their perspective, be it about planning a surprise party or hanging out with your own friends after work. You don’t ever want to hurt your lover, so you always think from their point of view before making any decision that involves them in any way.

is love real

Are you experiencing true love?

If you’re in a relationship and aren’t experiencing these true love signs, don’t fret. Perhaps, your relationship hasn’t reached the state of emotional maturity that surpasses physical attraction or the stage of infatuation.

Take your time and test the waters. You can’t fall in love with someone by forcing yourself into the relationship. If it’s not working out, try to understand each other better. And if nothing you do can bring happiness back into love, perhaps both of you would be better off dating other people. [Read: 25 things to talk about to create a truly happy relationship]

But at the same time, if both of you are already happy in the relationship, don’t try to change anything about it. Sometimes, selfless and unconditional love takes a long time to materialize. Remember, you can’t push yourself into the next stage in love unless both of you are ready for it.

As long as your lover and you are happy and understand each other, you’re already experiencing the perfect kind of love!

What is true love? I hope these signs of true love and its real meaning has helped you understand what true selfless love really means. And even if you’re not there yet, don’t worry about it. It’s only a matter of time before a happy romance goes the true love way!

    I Would Like To Say, You Can Experience True Love, You Just Have To Take Time And Enjoy Each O Company. I Been In. A Relationship For Close To Ten And A half Years.

    We Have Never Disagreed On Any Thing, Never Had To Say We Were Sorry. We Have A Perfect Love For Each Other, We Still Have A Smile On Our Face When We See One Another. True Love

  2. rena says:

    i like the the point that a true lover follows the partner perspective but the fact remains that sighs of true love depends on the personality involved that a lover does not keep promises or hurt you sometimes does not mean he is not your truelove maybe he or she is too carefree and that something you work on for more details visit

  3. S.A says:

    I am not in a relationship but I have experienced every single one of these 12 signs for one special person. Now I don’t know what I am supposed to do, I mean am I definitely in love with him? This is confusing. But a nice read 🙂

  4. Hay says:

    Overall like this article, though have a couple of things to add:
    1. true love is to have the beloved’s best interest at heart and act accordingly; and
    2. true love is to have God at the centre of the relationship and pray often.

  5. Adrian says:

    Hey guys 🙂 To Annie, that is just absolutely great to hear, I am so happy for you because I can only imagine how great your relationship must be. I have always believed that being loved by someone is already a great feeling, but being able to love someone truly in this way is the greatest feeling ever. I feel this true love for a certain girl for the past three years. Unfortunately, we are not together, and I don’t think she’ll ever feel this way about me, so it’s like the article says, you suffer just to see that person happy. I know she is happy with the other guy she is with and because I love her, I have to accept that. I would never do anything to hurt her, she is so special to me. The twelve signs listed above are spot on, this is exactly how it is for me when I think about this girl. I just wish we could be together that I could give her this love, it really eats me up inside to know that I will probably never be with her. Reading this article just confirmed it for me, that I indeed truly love her with my whole being. For a long time I thought that I was just convincing myself or looking, hoping for something that didn’t exist between me and her. At least, now I know I was not delusional. I have never before felt like this about someone, and I know with all my heart that I will never ever feel this way about anybody else in the future. I still used to speak to her a year or two ago and when she told me how things were going in her life and how happy she was with her new job, it just gave me such a great feeling inside to know how well things were going with her. We were always good friends, but I kind of knew that she would never see me as more than just a friend. This is what is so heartbreaking for me, and about a year ago I messed it all up because I told her that I secretly loved her all along, and now she doesn’t want to talk to me anymore. I know that she has someone else in her life, and it’s so hard to accept that, but I do, because I love her too much to disrupt her life. I just want her life to be perfect, and if that’s with someone else then I have to accept that. So, here I sit and suffer in silence, but I don’t care. I also do not seek somebody else for myself, because I could never do that to a girl – knowing I truly love someone else whilst having a relationship with her. I know that I will never love any other girl as much as I love this girl. I just wish it could be different. It is truly just pure hell not to be able to love this person directly, almost like not being allowed to do so.

  7. fezeka says:

    I’d like to meet a real man for a real nd true relationship

  8. Fffffhdgfytg says:

    Hay, god has nothing to do with your relationship with someone. Thats dumb. I mean, why the hell would you pray for your relationship with someone to someone whom it doesnt concern? Also, people can be in relationships and have different interests. My girlfriend has an interest in baking and music while i have an interest in parkour and music. I dont see why you would try to get god (if he exists) to make you love each other, when if you already do love each other wouldnt need help to do so. Else it would just suck. You shouldnt need help to love someone from some almighty sexist god (if youre christian (seriously, it says in the bible that women are second to men)).

  9. Adrian says:

    Hey there. To the person above^^^. I know it looks like the bible says women are second to men, but that’s not true. A man and his woman are like One, once the two form a bond in Love. A “wife” is second to a “husband”, but it must be understood this does not imply anything about the gender. A man can be a “wife” if he desires something that is his master at the same time – e.g. money. A man and woman (e.g. Adam and Eve) were one unit, until they had “knowlegde” and they realised they were “naked”. This is akin to a woman realising she might have shortcomings in a marriage and essentially become the man’s slave, trying her best to impress him and keep him interested in her. She is then a “wife” to her “husband”. She gives him power over her and he knows it. At this point normally true love no longer exists in the relationship unfortunately.

  10. JoJo says:

    I agree with all the things up there. It’s interesting to read that you can’t force. No you can’t. Everything just fell into place- at least in my perspective. It has left me confused but I relate to everything in this article.
    I fell hopelessly and indeed is my true love. It’s too bad he doesn’t know it and if he does we can’t do anything about it.

  11. Nanas says:

    Hey Adrian you talk the truth man, the feeling is mutual dear I can say I know how feel but everything will pass you know with GOD everything is possible it shall come to an end dear don’t worry soon you will forget about everything. But hey right am inloooove with the great man to me he’s a blessing in disguise and I always thank GOD for bringing him into my life. Trust me dear you will be fine.

  12. fowokemi says:

    I really love this writeup believing I will find a man to really love in tye nearest future…and most importantly, someone who will love me more. one sided love is the worst feeling ever as described by adrian…and I never wish that for my enemy.,so Adrian, wake up dear.,Love is also a decision, change your mindset and believe you can love another person better, you will find out you will and you will enjoy a fulfilled relationship. so, wakeup dearie’ its only one life, you also need to enjoy- God helping you.

  13. Manish singh rawat says:

    I loved her bt at last we broke.. I am very alone so what should I do now need some help.. if any one can.. I want to talk with someone abt every thing so I can feel a little light from my inside.. its like curse for me when she said u will never found true love I ur life..

Good bye frnds I thik its enough now.. other whise I will again picture her and then get angry..

  14. David says:

    too good to get to learn about things which lovers tend to ignore in a relationship.But i have a problem and i request to get a feed back. The problem is,The girl i think am in love with, who all the time shows me signs of affection, has anoher guy, so at times wonder why she ever let me fall for her when she knew that she had a boy friend. This pisses me off to an extent that i feel betrayed. How can i control my anger when am with her?

  15. Aleen says:

    I read this article with tears in my eyes. Every single word in all of this seems to explain who I am and how I feel about my boyfriend. Last week was our two year anniversary, and I cannot feel more happy with him. We can spend days simply lying around watching movies and laughing and I can wish for nothing more in those moments. We also moved in together this year. However, I’m lost. I’m in utter pain and I don’t know what to do.
    Three weeks ago, he told me that he didn’t know what he felt for me now, that he wasn’t sure he had those feelings anymore. I have thought about this in a thousand ways, but every time I am away from him, not seeing him makes me shake, cry and physically clutch my chest. I can’t even sleep in the torture of waiting for him to figure out what he feels. When this happens, I decide to confront him, force him to end my torture even if it means breaking up with me because I can’t stand to see him kiss me with that undescribable look in his eyes anymore. And yet every time I see him, ready to ask him again, I get a sudden burst of hope, of willpower that makes me do anything in my power to make him feel better, to make him feel that love that once made him so happy. He says he truly does not know what he feels, he can’t make a decision. A few months ago we felt the same way about each other, now I am lost and we are both suffering. I need help, but I can’t find an answer to my question. The thought of not having him in my life anymore is more painfull than anything I’ve ever known. So to anyone out there who bothered to read all this: Should I let him go and end his guilt at making me wait (knowing that he is still unsure – this could go both ways), even if it feels like my heart will physically tear?

    To those who wrote above about anger: I cannot fathom being angry at my loved one, if such a situation happens to me, I am filled with immense, unrevocable sadness, and my heart litterally feels like it is tearing apart. If you are angry with or at your loved one, then I think that somehow, you have fallen out of love and are only hanging on to threads of what you used to feel. But in all honesty, I suppose I still know nothing of life and cannot lecture you, I only wish you all good luck and true happiness.

    I’m experiencing all of those signs towards my ex boyfriend. I love him and I thought he was my soulmate. I’ve found him sad and crying bc he was going to miss me. But as soon as we got back together he started to treat me mean and harsh again. I claims to have those ^^steps too but doesnt come to me and show it. am i just a helpless romantic? 🙁

  19. Cianna Johnson says:

    These points are so true, sadly, they are not found in 90 percent of relationships. Most are based on conditional love and sex. ????

  21. yunior says:

    i just have to comment on this article because its completelky wrong and not true is a few ways but to explain to you why is wrong i will first tell you a litle bit about my life and maybe you will understand it more, lets just say all my life i have been with over 100′ s of woman been maried 3 times 1 marrige was just pure mistake the other two woman that i spend years with and got to know personaly both meant a lot to me at first but both marrige failed now you could say is me but put it like this in time that love faded, oen marige lasted 2 years the other 7 years int he end we both new their was nothgin to feel this is the type of love you feel when you get to know a person and they become oart of your life this love is not real and will not last if you dotn bealive me look around how many marriges fail and how many marriges wish they nevr even maried int he first place most of them, you rarely hear a marrige that lastd a life time. now let me tell you what is true love, if you dotn bealive in love at first sight than you nerv experience true love this is the real one not like this article claims, why you maybe this is just me just a logn time ago back in highschool i have always been mix in numerous relationships but one day out of no were there was this girl i remember sitting at the front table of the class and i decided to look in front of me , than i notice her, i saw her smile , and for a moment everythign stop everythign i was, everything i new did’nt matter, my galavanting skills dissapear, all out of the sudden this girl whom i never meet or know anythign about became everything in my life, for days i was unable to tell her , i was surprise since i did’nt belive is such a thign as love, and i became a coward, scare of askign this one girl out but eventually i did. and very lucky was i she felt the same way it lasted but life separated us i wish not to include the unfortunate reason to why i was not able to see her ever again but i never forgot about it, im 96 now, and maybe my previous marriges did not work cause of her but one thign i do know is that the love i felt for her was my biggest purpose in live and after 79 years since i felt in love with her i can still look at this one picture and feel the same deep feeling. so bealive in love at first sight its the real one, you can fall in love with anybody you want if you get to know them abut that type of love always fades and never last for ever.but true love not all of us will find this one.

I HV been in a rltn bfr and tht boy cheated on me . my boyfriend also had a rltn bfr in which the girl cheated on him . Both of us hadn’t believed in luv from then until we met. We were very good friends and slowly started forming feelings fr each other we NVR proposed to each other . We knew that we luvd each other and we became a couple just lyk tht . He was the one hu showed me wat luv was all about. Eventhough there were some rumours abt me lyk I was a flirt and all he trusted me and stood with me all these years. Bt a simple fyt led to the break up and its really unbearable.I talked a little too much and he doesn’t even want to tlk to me now. I luv him and it is too tuf to smyl wen its burning inside . I can never love any1 as much as I luved him

    The hardest thing to have in a relationship is TRUE LOVE. Nowadays, our generation thinks that the way they love is the true kind of love but in all reality, it’s actually superficial, just maintained by the secretions of your dick. It’s the satisfaction of pleasure that they’re all so caught up about and that is not true love. No, That is TRUE LUST. The lust for another’s flesh is greatly diminished by lusting for another and the cycle continues. Not unless you devoid yourself of true lust, never will you seek what you find, which is true love.

    It is so rare now to have true love and if you have found your true love, please, don’t let go. I have been married to the same woman for 10 years now. We married when I was 21 and she was 20. I thought that she was the one, I tried repeating that in my head over and over again each and every day but I just can’t seem to think past the fact that I feel that she really isn’t the one. One day, I met a fantastic woman that really blew me away. She was everything that I have dreamed of. I wanted her and I knew she wanted me. I know that what we both have is true love for each other and I am willing to blow away the 10 years to be with her forever.

    I thank the gods above for blessing me with the love of my life. He is the one, my love, my true love and my everything. We are betrothed and I cannot wait for the day that we can start our marriage, it will be an honour to have him as a husband. We have been together for 6 and a half years and our relationship just gets better and better. I feel such sadness that some people never experience this, I know of many unhappy people including a guy in a relationship where they scream at each other nastily everyday. The idea of love has been corrupted and youth are not shown what a happy, loving, faithful relationship should look like- they accept and stay stuck in unhappy relationships.

    To anyone reading this, I pray and hope that you get to find your true love and experience this happiness, with true love you will be the richest person in the world.

    Well finding real true love would really be like hitting the lottery which the chances are really not that good especially nowadays.

  32. Frenchie says:

    Why would anyone engage in a relationship without those 12 “signs” – and more – *already* present? Doesn’t really make sense. Are people so desperate just to be with someone that they are willing to compromise that much on quality? As we say in French, “Mieux vaut

    Real true love really did come very easy in the past which today unfortunately it is a totally different story altogether.

    And for the men and women that were very blessed finding real true love with one another which you certainly have so very much to be very thankful for since you were very blessed by God to have that gift of life that many of us still don’t have today that really would’ve wanted the very same thing as well especially for many of us very good men that really hate to be still single now when we really shouldn’t be at all.
