Although many people have a certain view of what love may be, there isn't one singular answer. We all experience love differently, and that is the true beauty of it. Some may see it as a once in a lifetime experience; for others, it may be a strong emotional bond. Whatever the case may be, love has extraordinary power. Here are a few overlooked moments of love shared between people. Remember to cherish them the next time they happen.

1) Not adjusting yourself on the couch, because you know they are comfortable.
