Meeting “the one” doesn’t always look like a romantic comedy. Love doesn’t mirror the movies. Love is unique and personal. And it’s more than okay to have your own love story. Here we have 10 signs that will prove to you if you have met the perfect partner or not!
1. You can be your real self with him/her.
With your love, you can show all the sides of you. The good, the bad and the “I’m hungover and haven’t showered in 3 days” ugly. It’s easy to be you with your person. You don’t feel like you have to hide your silly side, or quiet your personality down because your partner loves those special qualities about you. Nobody is perfect. You know you’ve met “the one” when he or she knows this and loves you for your imperfections.
2. Similar life goals.
Maybe both of you have different fantasies of where you want to travel, or what kind of dog you’ll want to have. But when it comes down to the major things, like deciding whether you want to get married and/or have children, you two are holding the same deck of cards. And you both are holding the winning hand.
3. You can work through things in a healthy way.
It doesn’t matter that you and your mate fight, it’s how you fight that makes all the difference. You know you’ve met your match when working through an argument doesn’t feel like putting a Rubik’s Cube back together. You two can get through anything together, and knowing that makes you feel safe and secure.
4. You feel like the luckiest person in the world.
When you both feel like the luckiest person in the world to have found one other, you’re on the right path. The strongest and happiest of couples feel in awe of their partner. They see his or her great qualities and uniqueness, and feel incredibly grateful.
5. You both are committed to the relationship.
A companion you want for life is a person who is committed to you and the relationship. So if you have found a man or woman that is willing to always put in the effort to have a happy and healthy relationship, you have probably found “the one” for you.
7. Your friends and family see how happy you are.
You know you’re entirely happy when the closest people around you can see you beaming from a mile away. Your family and friends couldn’t be happier for you.
8. You’re madly in love, but there’s more than that.
Even though you both are madly in love — love isn’t just what this relationship has to offer you. You feel supported by your partner, you feel secure, you feel respected, you feel fulfilled. Love alone doesn’t carry a relationship.
9. You know deep down inside.
You’ve figured out that you’ve met “the one” because you feel it in your heart. But, you also feel it in your gut as well. We have our intuitions for a reason, and your intuition is telling you you’ve made the right choice.
10. He or she makes you want to be better.
A good partner is one that accepts you for who you are. A great partner, on the other hand, accepts you and loves you for who you are, but also pushes you to be your best. You know you’ve met the ultimate better half when they make you want to be better.
