Are you in love? Are you daydreaming about a person when you should be working? In fact, scientists have explained exactly what it means to "fall in love." The state of the brain's "in love" phase is a unique and well-defined period of time, but understanding how to know if you love someone may elude us at times, but there are always ways to see the signs. Here are 12 telltale signs you love someone deeply.

1. You do as specific thing to see if they follow or react in some way

This is especially true if you work together or attend the same class. For example, if you both went to lunch together one day and things seemed to go really well, maybe you’ll subconsciously ask to take a lunch right in front of them, you know all “laid-back, not caring.” Why? To see if they’ll follow suit and ask to join you again.

2. He is the first person you think about

Your love will be the first person you think about when you wake up and the last person you think about before you go to sleep. When something good happens to you, this is the first person you want to tell.

3. You obsessively check your phone every 10 seconds

Maybe you’re checking to make sure you still have service. Or that your volume is still on. Or that you haven’t missed any calls. If you’re glancing at your phone all the time, if the sound of your phone going off sends a tingle down your spine and has you lunging for your purse… we might be talking about love.

4. Everything reminds you of him

Whether you’re walking around, see a Starbucks and wish he was there with you…Or you’re shopping around at Bed, Bath & Beyond and can’t help but wish he was there choosing random pillows… No matter what, everywhere you go, you think of him. It’s a strange feeling you can’t help. He just pops into your head at the most random times.

5. You would do anything for her

People who are in love generally feel a powerful sense of empathy toward their beloved, feeling the other person's pain as their own and being willing to sacrifice anything for the other person.

6. You're comfortable with making little sacrifices for him

You wouldn't put off your responsibilities for him, but if he's sick and needs you to help take care of him instead of going to brunch one morning, you're totally cool with that.

7. You're comfortable enough around him to make bad jokes and be your fully weird self

You might've been trying to impress him before, but now you're cool to hum around the kitchen and wear your pants tucked into your socks when he comes over.

8. You have trouble controlling your words–in the beginning.

Despite this does not occur to everyone, it is a stereotype for a reason. This goes away after a while, and we touch on it more below. Initially, realizing you’re attracted to someone, you’ll be a little… weird. You may say dirty things by accident. Or you may be very quiet and shy. Others simply stand in stunned, awkward silence, not knowing what to say. Then there’re those who simply don’t know when to stop talking.

9. You want to spend your time with them, rather than anyone else

You’re at a friend’s house, maybe a restaurant, or a get-together, and all of a sudden you get the text that they’re free and would love to see you if you have the time. If you invite them to join you and spend the rest of your time with them, or if you simply walk out of wherever you’re at and go see them, then you may be in love.

10. You think about the long-term relationship

This is a subtle signal among signs you love someone deeply. When you love someone, it is hard to imagine a future without the person in it. For this reason, you will think long-term about how you can build a life with this person.

11. You find yourself always talking about him

You can’t help it. Someone says or does something that reminds you of him and before you even realize it you’re talking about him. It doesn’t matter who you’re talking to. You could be talking to the lady who does your hair, or your mom, or the cashier at the grocery store and he’ll still come up in conversation.

12. You re-read his text messages

This is an undeniable one when it comes to signs you love someone. You keep the entire texting conversation you have with him. When he sends you a text, you often smile and read it a couple times just for good measure. His texts literally brighten your day and make you smile from ear to ear.
