2. There is no such thing as your own feelings anymore. Your feelings become his and his become your’s. His happiness is your’s, as well as, his sorrows, hopes and dreams.
3. When your whole world feels like it is crumbling, and all you want to do is be by his side.

7. He inspires you to be a better version of yourself. He motivates you to follow your dreams and he treats you like his Sapno Ki Rani every day of the year.
8. There is constant laughter between the two of you. He can put a smile on your face by just saying your name, and you start think “tera hasna sexy lagda ve” (your laugh is very sexy) in your head.

9. He does not try to change you. He falls in love with the little quirks that make you who you are. Your chashma (glasses), the way you snort when something is hilarious, and the way you say Leh like it’s a legitimate part of the English vocabulary.
10. When you hear the song “Tum Hi Ho,” and you automatically start thinking of him, then you realize that he is Mr. Right.
