What are the signs that you’re in love?
Or how do you know that someone is falling in love with you?
Read this comic article to find out.
Love is like pregnancy, you cannot hide it for too long. Even if you try to conceal it or live in denial, after a while, the signs will give it away.
In this comic article, I have listed 6 signs that will point you to one undeniable fact: YOU ARE IN LOVE!
Grab a bowl of roasted groundnuts and come with me.
Your brain (common sense) stops working when you are in love:
Most people say that common sense (brain) and love (heart) cannot work together, and one has to suspend its activities for the other. Well, I think that is true.
When you are in love, your common sense goes out the window. Your heart does the thinking for you while your common sense hibernates.
You begin to see the world in rainbow colours. You start noticing the rustling of leaves, butterflies suddenly look attractive to you, even your walking steps will change.
Love makes you blind to the flaws of your partner and even if everyone around you points out the evident flaws to you, your brain can’t process them because it is in a dreamy state.

You think about them a lot
One minute you’re thinking about how to save the world from aliens, the next minute, you are thinking about your crush.
Your imagination kicks in and you go on a journey, thinking about what it feels like holding their hands, seeing them smile, hearing them laugh, and chilling in a resort at Maldives with them.
If you fantasize a lot about that person, newsflash! You are in love!
Ask yourself, “Whose thoughts fill my mind often?” “Whose thoughts make me giggle for no reason?”
The name that pops to mind while reading this is the person you’re in love with.
If nobody’s name comes to mind, well you will have to chill small.
Love is on the way.
You are always happy for no reason
Love is like credit alert, it makes you high on happiness.
When you are in love, you blush at the slightest compliments and you become happier generally.
Suddenly, all your problems cease to exist because love makes you forget them.
You are no longer bothered about global warming issues, inflation of food prices, increase in fuel price, traffic on your way to work, house rents, and other bills that pop up without your consent.
Love fills your heart with happiness and keeps the doctor away.
If your body is always sweeting you for no reason, then you are in love.
Love Makes You A Poet
Even if you don’t have a background in writing/literature, love has a way of bringing out the Chinua Achebe in you.
Before we can say “Romeo and Juliet’, you are already picking your pen from the basket of love to write roses are red and violets are blue, I have feelings for you and away it flew.
In no time, you become a bestselling author of relationship books and poetry collections, thanks to love.
You feel a tinge of jealousy at intervals
Love comes with 10 megabytes of jealousy that increases over time if you don’t put it under control. When you are in love, you tend to feel a little jealous when you spot your lover with members of your gender.
Because you want them talking to you alone and are also afraid to lose them.
So, when you see them gisting and giggling with the opposite sex, you feel your chest tightening and your temperature slowly rising till they stop whatever they are doing and come to keep you company.
Love makes you an event planner
When you are in love, you are always looking forward to special events with your partner like the first day we met anniversary, the first date anniversary, the day she said yes anniversary, our first kiss anniversary, the day we went shopping for the first time anniversary, the day she posted me on her status for the first time anniversary, and so on.
Because you are in love, you know how to plan dates and surprise parties, you have the best restaurants locations at your fingertips, and also start planning in advance for the big day when it comes.
Before you know it, you have planned your honeymoon and retirement as well. So, yeah.
You would do anything for them
On a normal day, you procrastinate on personal tasks until few minutes to the deadline but when the person you are in love with asks you to do something for them, you discover that you have the energy of Dominic Toretto and John Cena combined.
You find yourself catching grenades for them, stopping a train with one hand, jumping roofs like Spiderman, dodging bullets, and other insane stunts that you would ordinarily not do.
Love makes you a superhero, literally.
Over to you, what are the other physical signs of love?
I will be waiting in the comments section to hear from you.
