Hello and thanks for using!

I think the answer to your question is a highly personal one that varies person to person. For some people they know they're in love when they find themselves thinking about that person all of the time and want to make that person feel as good as they make them feel. Some swear by an instant attraction that goes beyond physical desires and others feel that love grows over time.

Scholars say that love consists of commitment, intimacy, and passion. However, bear in mind that each of those things could mean slightly different things to different people!

I hope that helps!
