What Makes You Say “I’m in Love With This Person”? People Responded.

Isn’t falling in love great?

And even if it doesn’t work out in the end, the memories of those early days when you got the warm fuzzies and butterflies in your stomach will stick with you forever.

Hey, it’s one of the best parts about being human!

What makes you say to yourself, “I’m in love with this person”?

Here’s what AskReddit users had to say about this.

1. His word is his bond.

“I met my partner, kept it casual, neither of us wanted a relationship, but we were clearly falling for each other.

Long story short, I had a big breakdown (I have diagnosed and not exactly minor mental health illnesses), he thought I’d killed myself.

He got on his motorbike and turned up at my house, I opened the door in the biggest state, he grabbed me and I will never forget he said “I promise I will never leave your side”. And he has stuck to every promise he’s ever made.

Not engaged though I think it’s coming, but I’m already planning our wedding. That man is my entire life.”

2. Seeing the future.

“Early on in our friendship before we started dating, my BF and I were sitting on a couch reading stories out loud to each other (prob on Reddit).

While he read, a vivid image of our future selves looking old flashed in my mind and I remember feeling a sense of calm, peace, and love.

I’ve never seen myself growing old with anyone ever.”

3. Now you know.

“We had a pregnancy scare and thinking about the potential of having a baby with her made me happy.

For the first time in my life the thought of making a family with a woman filled me with joy.

That’s when I knew.”

4. Take the good one.

“While she was making soup I made two grilled cheese sandwiches, one for each of us.

As I finish up and go to slice them I notice that one had a little burnt patch in the center.

Without hesitation or a second thought I gave her the unburnt sandwich.”

5. True love.

“That she’s the first person I ever want to share any type of important news or random thoughts that pop into my head.”

6. Melted.

“My girlfriend was telling a story to me and a couple of friends when the cuckoo clock made her jump.

She told it off in the most adorable way imaginable with the cutest voice before continuing the story.

I think both my friends fell in love with her a little then too. I kinda just melted right there.”

7. Something special.

“About a month into dating, we were at my house cuddling in bed listening to reggae music, we both were awake, not talking or saying anything at all, just laying there holding each other.

I could feel the love coming from her, and I felt the same way. It was something deep and primal, I didn’t have a care in the world other than being with her in that moment, and I knew I was feeling something special.

Super cheesy I know!”

8. Dreams.

“I want to be a writer. Always wanted to make art.

I come from a family who doesn’t back me in my dreams. Very practical people. Very kind people. Painfully pragmatic. 2 years ago I started writing and there isn’t a day that goes by that my wife doesn’t pump me up. There isn’t a day that goes by where she doesn’t talk with me about my dream.

But, for the kicker, we are sitting and talking about our future. She says, “after you have been selling your work for a bit do you think we could go to Europe and see the sights?”

I said of course but what do you mean after a bit? She says “oh well, I know the next couple of years you need to get your work out there, but, I figured after everyone knows you’re great we can relax for a couple of months.”

This woman knows in her bones I’m gonna make it. So no matter what she does. I’ll have her back just as hard. I can’t begin to tell you how important it is to have that one person not just believe in you. But know you will do it.”

9. Humor is crucial.

“First time I really fell for someone was when he was texting me and matched my humor.

He would also call me cute names and if I didn’t answer for a while, he’d spam them until I answered.

Honestly thought it was cute.”

10. Not draining.

“I find most human interaction draining, but with him I recharge. I was seeking out his company before I really knew him.

We just fit. We have a lot in common (politics, religion, attitudes to finance) but where we differ we create a dynamic that makes each of us better.”

11. Doing it all together.

“I genuinely want to do everything with/for her.

I want to make my wife laugh, make her life easier, and go through every part of life with her – for better and for worse.”

12. Tell them first.

“The first person I want to tell when anything happens is them.

No matter how much we fight or how angry I am, they’re the person I want to talk to.

I have a healthy support circle, but I still prefer talking to my SO no matter how bad or good things are going.”
