Steps to follow:


Apart from what they say, which may or may not be true, the thing that will tell you how someone feels about you is their actions. If this person is interested in you - no matter what you think, say or feel - if they respect your view of the world even when they disagree with you, they definitely love you.


If they come to you when they have to make a serious decision, this is because you are that someone very important in their life and they value your opinion whether or not they actually follow your advice. The most important thing is that they value you and take your view into consideration.


When we like spending time with someone, it is very easy to see and this obviously means that you care for each other and have fun together. This DOES NOT MEAN you need to be all over each other constantly. A couple should have their space and yet love each other equally, it is important not to confuse these ideas.

How they treat you every day is also important. If your partner shows you how they feel about you every day: they are very considerate of you, care about you and want you to feel comfortable, and they want to make sure you are happy no matter whether you are out or at home together. We want the person who loves us to feel happy.


When someone loves you they support you, they are always willing to listen and even if they can't give you any advice or even when they disagree with your actions, they still care about you and what happens in your life. In addition they will often show you how they feel through physical affection: touching, kissing and cuddling. This is another way to say 'I love you' without saying the words.

Two people who love each other or like each other will have desire, passion, happiness, and sexual chemistry. Without these, a relationship would just be a friendship whereas if it is all based on desire without any elements of friendship it is a purely sexual relationship.


Do not confuse the two concepts: loving is not the same as wanting, they are very different things. When we are part of a couple, we need our personal space, without the other. We also need to have privacy but if we want to keep secrets, we can't have a healthy relationship and this means there is no affection or love between us.


After reading this article you'll see it's not so hard to tell if someone loves you back. It's more about valuing their actions over words and enjoying love in all its forms.
