- When he/she loves you for who you are. NOT who he/she wants you to be.
- When he/she respects you as an individual. He/she lets you grow as yourself, into your own, and does not impose his/her expectations on you.
- When you smile just by thinking of him/her. (And you can’t help but think about him/her too, sometimes. )
- When you can’t wait to see him/her again.
- When you will do whatever it takes just to be with him/her.
- When he/she will do whatever it takes just to be with you too.
- When he/she inspires you to be more than who you are.
- When both of you bring out the best in each other. He/she inspires positive emotions in you, such as happiness, inspiration, contentment, and hopefulness, rather than negative emotions such as unhappiness, apprehension, doubt, fear, or anger.
- When he/she makes you feel good about yourself. He/she does not put you down whether directly or indirectly; neither does he/she induce self-doubt in you.
- When you can simply be yourself around him/her, without ever trying to be like someone else or behave in a certain way that’s not you at all. You are able to shine in your own light without having to dumb or dial yourself down, as he/she does too when both of you are around each other.
