Is Love in the Air?

With the world literally at our fingertips and communication continuously challenged due to the lack of looking up from our phones, it’s easy to deduce that as a society we are no longer great at interpreting our own feelings, let alone the feelings of others!

Love is one of those feelings, it can be right in front of you or you might think you know it to see it, but if you are like me and you have been single since before Netflix and Chill was a thing, love might seem more like a mirage than a real thing.

Don’t get me wrong I am happily single at the moment, not something everyone can say but I actually mean it. I wanted to get to know myself better and I have. I can honestly say that I’ve spent the last few years working out the kinks in my own life and I feel so much better than I ever did.

I quit smoking, lost 50lbs, changed my look, took up dancing and the list goes on so I’m good, in fact I’m fantastic and I think it is showing…

The one aspect I am still truly horribly bad at is diciphering my own feelings. I still question myself all the time especially about my intentions and did that guy just come on to me or just being overly friendly? I’m extremely confident but confused at the same time if that makes any sense? I’m so bad at reading people, seriously!

I’ve always been in love with love, I’m a fan of every absolutely ridiculous cute romantic story there is, even the animated ones. I’m also quite enamoured with symbolic gestures of love, horoscopes, poetry, music and of course I love flowers, over the top laughter, compliments and a man who can look at me and make me blush.

I love intelligence and someone with flaws, especially someone who doesn’t take himself too seriously and a few times I have thought such a man was within my reach but after careful evaluation and holding back the urge to pounce I came to realize it just wasn’t quite right.

So my question is, how do you know? I mean nowadays with the lack of communication and blurred lines. What are some tell-tale signs that love is in the air…
