The Telltale Sign You *Really* Like Someone, Based on Your Birth Order

10 Reasons Why The Best Relationship Of Your Life Will Be With A Girl Who Loves ‘Too Much’

1. She will bring incredible positivity to your life.

She loves you, she loves the world, and this love fills her every cell and bone and muscle and curve. Her love shines through her normal, everyday existence and it will be so bright and positive that every single day you will be encouraged.

2. She will get you over any past relationship, hurt, or trust issue.

She loves you too much for you to be thinking of any other female. She’s the one whose presence unintentionally demands your attention. She distracts you with her mind, with her happiness, with her smile. She will love you so deeply that any past scars and any past pain will fade. You will forget the brokenness, the bad relationships of your past and with her, learn to love again.

3. She will show you what love really feels like.

Not the half-love you’ve known. Not the love that fades when times get tough, or when someone new comes along. Instead, she will love you consistently, patiently, willingly, and fearlessly through the ups and downs. She won’t pull away. She won’t run. She will love you in a way that fills the empty spaces of your life and makes you a more whole, more complete version of yourself.

4. She will never let you feel empty.

She will continually fill you with her love—on bad days, on tough mornings, after incredible loss, during the most difficult times. With her, you will never feel unsatisfied, never feel lonely. She will be all in, and more.

5. She will teach you forgiveness.

She loves the world and keeps loving the world, even when she sees its brokenness. She will forgive the evils done to her, and in her example, she will teach you. She will show you how to release your grip on the tiny, painful pieces you cannot control. She will show you how to pull the hurt from your bones and toss it into the wind. With her, you will learn to heal, you will learn to let go, and you will learn how freeing this process is.

6. She will be fiercely loyal to you.

A girl that loves ‘too much’ will never run out of love for you. She will value you, so much so that she would never do anything to hurt you. She may love the world, but that is not the love she shares with you—that love is sacred.

7. She’ll open your heart to emotions.

She is emotional. She has feelings, and she’s not scared of being open and honest about them. She is the type of girl who will peel back your layers and expose the parts of you that you try to keep hidden. She will show you the raw, unedited version of herself and in turn, you will do the same, learning to love in the realist, most beautiful way.

8. She’s going to fight with you and more importantly, for you.

Because she loves you, she will fight with you. She will argue, she will challenge you, she will push you, and she will drive you crazy. But this is because she cares about you. She cares enough to go through hell together, just to come out on the other side even closer, even stronger. And she will fight for you. She will be your partner, your ride-or-die, your other half, fighting against the world for your love.

9. She will always choose to work through problems rather than walk away.

Her love is too much, but that doesn’t mean your relationship will be perfect. You will have problems, but she will always choose to talk, to hash things out, to compromise, to work through the gritty stuff. She won’t pack her bags and walk the second things get hard; she loves you, so she’s all in.

10. She’ll love your darkest places.

The unforgivable places. The places and memories and regrets and thoughts you keep hidden in the shadowy corners of your mind—she will love those. Her love will be the light that breaks through that darkness, cleans the cobwebs from what you’ve shoved away and tried to forget. She will love you and all that you come with—your past, your insecurities, your fears, and your evils. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
