6 Physical Gestures That Show Your Long Term Partner Is Truly and Madly In Love With You

Sometimes, the body language of your partner may say a lot about their love towards you. The signs displayed by your partner can tell you if they are still attracted to you.

We may be people who are very vocal about our love and affections of our partner. However, it is difficult to understand the true emotions of your partner if they are not much of a talker. This difference between you and your partner may hinder your peaceful and happy relationship. Therefore, it is important to know how to decode your partner's body language. If your long term partner is still in love with you, their body language will speak for them. According to Science of People, blushing, tilting of heads or even a simple touch can indicate their attraction to you.

Here are a few signs that will assure you that your long term partner is still truly and madly in love with you.

1. They always lean closer to you during conversations

When your partner shows the utmost importance to your conversation, they tend to lean towards you. The body language indicates that your partner wants to remain physically and emotionally close to you. They are fully invested in you and shows that they like your thoughts. According to  HuffPost, this gesture is a non-verbal way of showing that they are still interested in you.

2. They have a wide smile when you are next to them

Your partner may not be the person who always has his pearly whites on display but when you are around them, it is different. Be it a bad day at work or a lazy Sunday, having you close to them makes them feel energized and positive. "Guys stop smiling like this around the age of 5 — unless they're really happy," says body language expert, Patti Wood, author of Success Signals, A Guide to Reading Body Language to Cosmopolitan. Women, on the other hand, tend to become pink around the person they love.

3. They look you in the eyes

If your partner is attracted to you, you will always notice them looking into your eyes. You will also notice that the pupils of their eyes are dilated. According to a psychologist named Hess, there is a relation between dilated pupils and attraction. He said that a chemical secreted by the brain called the norepinephrine causes the dilation of pupils. If you observe this with your partner, it means that your long term partner is still attracted to you.

4. They whisper into your ears when you are in a group

When you go out with your partner in a group, they might observe them whispering into your ears from time to time. Your partner may not be doing it consciously but they are reducing the proximity between the two of you. They are also sending a message to the people around saying you belong to them. According to Psychology Today, when your partner tries to reduce the space between you both, it shows they love you and want to remain close.

5. They playfully touch you

You might not be in a romantic moment but your partner is always playing around with your hair or even your hands. Touch is a very important factor in a relationship. When your partner touches you, it shows their affection towards you. It also shows the satisfaction and the love enjoyed by your partner in the relationship.

6. Their eyebrows raise whenever they see you 

Whenever you walk into the room, your partner is excited to see you. Their eyebrows are raised and their attention is focused only on you. "If you likes you and he likes what he sees as soon as he sees you, he wants more of you and soon the aperture of his eyes increases, making his eyebrows raise," said Wood to Cosmopolitan.
