What Does It Mean to be “In Love”?

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”— Martin Luther King, Jr.

The 5 Most Important Signs of Love

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” — Morrie Schwartz

1. You’re great friends.

2. You’re open-hearted with each other.

3. You’re (both) able to let love in.

4. You share— lots of things.

5. You’re affectionate, physically and emotionally.
