How do you know if you really love someone? It bugs me when people say, “You’ll just know,” as if everyone experiences love so clearly with a bunch of birds flying in a circle above their head. Many people have written in asking that big question, “How do I know if I love someone?” and today I’m going to talk about what the research says, my top three ways to know if you’re really in love with someone and what I think about soul mates. So stay tuned!

I wanted to submit a question for an Ask Dr. Abby episode: How do you know if you love someone? A little context: I never had a serious relationship, and I am seeing a guy at the moment and I am not sure if I love him, or if I just want to be with him because I want a relationship, or if I just want to be with him because I am scared of being alone, or if I am tricking myself that I am not sure I love him because of fear of rejection. I know this might be a very basic question but not sure what to do about it.
Thank you so much,
