YOu do have to remember that being inlove is different with being in love with the idea of being inlove. you know you love the person when
you accept the person no matter what.
you both bring out the best in each other not put the best foot forward, it's a natural instinct i guess that makes you a better person. the small things that irritate you seem trivial because you both work on it and
you enjoy being together but accept the fact that you both have separate lives aside from the one you both have as a couple.
you smile because the thought of the person makes you glad you met him/her.
those are just general i guess. but that is just me plus my poems sound better because it inspires me. and the other person inspires me to strive the best that i can be.
