Dealing with anxiety in relationships, how do I know if I really love my boyfriend ? We’ve been going through a rough patch for the last couple of months and have been quite on and off but always came back to eachother. Irs just been off. I often think he doesn’t love me or I don’t love him.. how to know if you really love someone?

Hello :/ sorry to hear you are feeling like this. Sounds really difficult. I can only speak from my own personal experience, and it is probably different for everyone, but I feel as though if you have to ask yourself "do I love him", then that probably means you dont... but then again thats just me. I know it can be confusing. I do remember feeling confusde about what love really even was or felt like when I was slightly younger, but once you find someone you really love it becomes so obvious what it feels like in my opinion. Hard to describe though.

Why have things been on and off? Why do you guys keep on not being together for periods? Is this a sign that perhaps you shouldnt be together at all? Especially if you will just break up over and over... it sounds really mentally tolling. Its also troubling to me that you in your own words: "often think he doesnt love" you. Thats so sad to hear, is he not making it obvious to you, or is it perhaps that you know logically that he loves you, he tells you all the time and his actions reflect it (that last part is important), but perhaps your anxieties are skewing things. I think you know the answer to that :/ What do you think? Hope you are ok :heart:

Hi, its hard because if you are in love you just know. Love comes in different forms and is different for everyone.

I think really have a think about your relationship, when you break up do you go back to him because you miss him and really want to see him again or do you go back because you think there isn't a better option and its just easier to go back with someone you know?

Don't worry to much about if you love him or not, just figure out if you can see yourself spending all your time with him, growing up together, doing boring things like watching TV or cleaning the house, if you think about all the people you know, is he the first person that comes to mind etc? That way you can figure out if its him you want to spend time with and not just because hes an easy option..

Good luck!

You would know if you loved them. Perhaps you just need to get over this rough patch or that love hasnt developed yet.
