Everyone has an idea of what the perfect partner looks like. For some, it’s someone who shares their sense of humour, while for others, it’s their complete opposite. But when you meet the right person, you know it. Here are a few signs that you’ve found the one,
You’re comfortable being yourself around them. You don’t feel the need to put on a show or act like someone you’re not. They make you laugh. They can always make you smile even when you’re having a bad day. You have similar values and goals. You want the same things out of life, and you.
10. You express your love often
Saying those three little words, paying your partner a compliment, or simply showing your appreciation are all things that show just how much you love your person. If you can’t imagine a future without them, you’re ready to go the next step … and waltz down that aisle.
9. You don’t think marriage will solve everything
The two of you want to get married because you love each other, not because one of you thinks exchanging vows will fill some void or make you happier. You each need to be satisfied as individuals to make a happy marriage.
8. You don’t hate their family
Not only are you preparing for a future with her, but her family as well. It might not seem like a deal-breaker, but it helps immensely if you get along with your soon-to-be in-laws, your person’s siblings, and their friends. Ensuring they mix nicely is just one thing that will put your relationship to the test. But it’s important because those family relationships can save you from a lifetime of stress.
7. You two are a team
Whether it’s a new sofa, what restaurant you’re going to, or where your next vacation will be, you make decisions as a team or at least agree if the other is super-passionate about something. Successful couples work well together. There are certain things happy couples do every morning.
6. You accept that neither of you is perfect
No one’s perfect. As long as you can get past that and realize you still love her despite her snoring and constant need to pause a show during a critical scene because she needs to understand what’s going on, or he leaves milk bag tips lying around and sometimes misses the hamper, then you’ll both be better for it.
5. You fight fair
That last point is not fully accurate because, let’s face the facts–couples always fight. But how you fight determines what happens. If you handle it calmly, do not resort to name-calling or even yelling it out; if you both get past it and come to a compromise (or an acceptable compromise), you’ll be OK. You may even be having fun with this happening.
4. There’s respect — even during bad times
You might argue or disagree, but you would never go THERE. You know, that point of no return where you say or do something you regret, and it only goes downhill.
The key to a successful relationship relies on multiple factors. If you’re worried, don’t miss the reasons marriages fail.
3. You value each other
The love is obvious, but you find comfort, safety, and ease in your partner and ensure they know the feeling is mutual. If you’re considering taking the next step, follow the rules for a happy marriage, and you’ll be all set.
2. You’re connected
From finishing each other’s sentences and inside jokes that make sense to only the two of you to texting back promptly or just listening when the different needs to rant, you’re there for one another in a way that no one else is. It’s a sign of trust, intimacy and an undeniable emotional connection.
1. Communication is key
Whether it’s a tough topic, small issues or problems you’re having with one another, you need to know that you don’t have to walk on eggshells to hash it out. Nothing should be off limits, and you must know you can talk about anything and everything. When real talk doesn’t happen, it can be one of 10 ways to ruin your relationship accidentally.
