Falling in love not only makes you feel good inside but also makes you different from the outside, because love changes you for the better. always and forever.

Country music star George Strait made “You Look So Good In Love” famous. When we listened to his beautiful song, we asked ourselves: Do people in love look like those who are not?

We concluded (based on our 32 years of research as love and marriage experts) that the answer is no. When people fall in love, they begin to change for the better. And although love is hard at times, being in love with someone is good for you.

So, what does it look like when you’re in love? Our research suggests the following:

  1. You are happier.
    When you are in love, you smile and laugh more. You feel happy with yourself, your love interest, and the world. Everything that makes you smile from ear to ear.

It turns out that people who are happy in love say that “happiness” is a precursor to actually finding love. So, start practicing your happy face now!

  1. You are more confident.
    When you are in love, you stand a little taller and carry yourself with an air of confidence. Make no mistake about it — people in love are pretty good about themselves. You feel good about your skin.

And although you risk rejection, you feel good about accepting the possibility. Love isn’t always fair, but people in love accept this and stand tall in the face of uncertainty anyway.

  1. You look better.
    That lit-up feeling you get on the inside is noticeable on the outside. You will be noticeably prettier or more handsome when you are in love.

Partly because you make an effort to look your best for the one you love – you choose more flattering clothes, do your hair better, etc. But also, the release of love chemicals in your body helps make your hair shinier and gives your skin a captivating glow.
