Have you ever experienced true love? Do you know its taste, its flavor, its feel? Can you recognize it out of dozens of other love-related feelings? Is love at first sight possible? Is lust part of true love? How important are romantic and sexual emotions when it comes to true love? How do you recognize it? How long does it take to form?
Love is probably one of the most complicated things to define in life. Each individual has his or her own slightly different definition or explanation for the word ‘love’ and ‘true love’ seems to be equally complicated to explain. But one thing is for sure: it takes a while for true love to come around, so if you are currently in a relationship and you are wondering whether it is true love that you are feeling or if you will ever get to feel true love by your man’s side, you need to be prepared to wait. Even though you might be already thinking you love your boyfriend, the truth is what you are experiencing might be nothing more than a pure state of infatuation, one of the early stages of love.
Once infatuation disappears and you start having small arguments and disagreements, this is when true love will make itself evident. Once you know that it is more than infatuation and sexual attraction keeping you together, and once you start feeling a great sense of compatibility, true love might be just around the corner, if you are not already experiencing it. While you cannot force true love, you can identify it and work on keeping its flame burning. Here are
