How to understand you love a person? Before you figure out how to understand whether you love a person or not, you should decide on the concept of love in your personal system of perception, a place reserved for it, effective and verbal manifestations, or perhaps only sensual self-perceptions. Love can be confused with passion, affection, dependence, habit, a way to resolve psychological problems, and even with the consequences of complexes and psychotrauma received in a lifetime. The desire to be constantly close, to smell and touch the object of sympathy may be the beginning of love, and may remain at this level, dictated by passion and pheromones.
The desire to please a person, make his life easier, help, make him smile may indicate the presence of love. Here one can also include sincere feelings for the fate of a person — if you are indifferent to his successes or failures, or only one of these aspects is of interest, then one can hardly speak of a sincere interest in his fate. Remember that these signs separately can not indicate a feeling of love, they can characterize both friendship and warm attitude and a sense of duty - only a combination of many factors can say that it is love.
