Congratulations, it’s love! You and your partner are completely open with one another, aren’t afraid to discuss a real future together. Plus, your partner constantly demonstrates loving behaviorscomplimenting you, meeting your family and doing special favors for you. Your partner is clearly illustrating with his or her actions and words that he or she wants to be a part of your life. When it comes to your relationship, your partner is all-in, and you should feel excited about what’s in store for the two of you—you’ve found true love.

Going forward, it’s important that you treat your partner with the same kind of care and respect that he or she is showing you. While it’s clear that your partner is there to fully listen to you, support you and comfort you, make sure that you in turn are providing him or her with this same kind of attention. Relationships are a two-way street, and this enables your relationship to stay on the right path.

You’re on your journey toward love, and you should be excited by the possibilities ahead. You and your partner are clearly invested in each other and aren’t afraid to have the tough conversations from time to time. You also strive to be honest with each other, and that’s an important component to a healthy and loving relationship. Your connection with each other is strong, but there are still certain hang-ups that are preventing you from reaching full love status. 

To start with, it’s time to open up more than you ever have before. Are you unclear about certain parts of your partner’s past? It’s time to inquire. Are you afraid to talk more in-depth about a real future together? Bite the bullet and have these discussions, no matter how uncomfortable or unnatural they may seem. You need to be on the absolute same page as your partner, so even if it’s hard for you to be that vulnerable in front of someone else, it’s the easiest way to find true love.

At this point, it looks like your relationship is leaning more toward lust, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find love with your partner in the future. When looking closely at your relationship, it seems that your connection is more physical than emotional, and your conversations tend to be superficial. In fact, significant topics, such as meeting your family or discussing your future together, are rarely mentioned. While it’s important to have physical chemistry with someone, that’s just one part of finding true love. 

In order to start on your path toward love, you should make an effort to open up to your partner. Your partner might be just as willing to open up in return, and you’ll be able to move your relationship to the next level. However, if your partner is resistant, they might still need more time, or there’s the possibility that he or she isn’t yet ready to take steps to find love. But in order for you to get the love you deserve, it’s time to take a risk and find out.

When looking closely at your relationship, it appears as though you’re deep in lust. Your infatuation levels with this person are at an all-time high, and your chemistry is off the charts. However, your partner constantly comments on how sexy you are, even when it isn't appropriate. Plus, he or she hasn’t been forthright with his or her past, and you typically only talk about your attraction for one another and avoid the bigger issues.

While it’s thrilling to have this kind of passion in your life, it’s important to make sure that you aren’t using these feelings to avoid getting real with one another. Yes, attraction and intimacy are good qualities to have in a relationship, but it’s important to be building your emotional connection with your partner while your physical connection grows. If you want to one day transition from lust to love with this person, start changing the focus of your conversations from each other’s sexy appearances to what’s actually going on beneath the surface.
