5 Questions to Determine if You Are in Love
1. Do you hold the same belief system? Every individual has “dealbreakers” that can break a relationship. Be honest with each other, face hard truths, and decide if certain issues (religion, political ideology, future goals, etc) are dealbreakers early in a relationship.
2. What are your top 10 desired traits? Have a list of traits you desire in someone you want to love. A list of traits keep you from being emotionally driven to make smart choices in love.
3. Do you make each other better? Do you challenge each other to grow, do you encourage each other? Do you make each other better?
4. Is this person your best friend? If someone is not your best friend early in a relationship, it will be hard for them to be your best friend long term.
5. Who cares the most in the relationship? If you can ask that question and give a single answer response, you are in a bad relationship! The person who cares the least in the relationship runs the relationship. Each member of the couple should care for the other more than themselves.
