If you answered YES to 7 or more questions, congratulations, you are in love! It might be time to take the next steps in your relationship, whether that be meeting her parents, moving in together, or getting married.
If you answered YES to 4–6 questions, you are really “into” your partner, but not quite madly in love. Continue to get to know one another and explore what makes your relationship tick. For some, falling in love takes time.
If you answered YES to 3 or fewer questions, you’re probably not in love with her. Many people in the beginning stages of relationships fall into this category. You might be getting closer to falling in love—but know that there is much room for growth in your relationship—if you want it to happen. You may still be in the honeymoon phase or just lusting after each other, so don’t force love or a relationship to bloom if it doesn’t feel natural.
