Dating can be fun, but we all long for a lifetime companion who understands and cherishes us. How can you know if you’ve found your true love? What sign should you look for when you’re looking for a happy and lasting bond?
So, to help you see whether your current partner is THE one for you, here are some signs that you’ve chosen the right person to go with you for the rest of your life. Your Pince Charming might not always come riding in on a white horse, but there are some major signals to see if your relationship will last. Let’s dive in!
#1. You’ve Found Your True Love When You Love Talking About The Future With Them
When you’ve found THE one, you will want to spend the whole day thinking about building a future with them. The thoughts should feel natural like you wouldn’t imagine it any other way. That’s a sign that you’re confident in your bond and believe your relationship will last.
On the other hand, if you feel awkward or uneasy picturing your future with your current partner, this love might not be the right choice. If you can’t think about committing to anything with them for next week, you probably won’t be able to stay for three months from now. It’s best to reflect on your relationship and see whether you should stop.
#2. You’ve Found Your True Love When You Have The Same Values And Goals
You and your partner might have different views and opinions on many things. However, you should have something (or many things) in common, such as hobbies, values, or goals. For example, if you value family and wish to have children, your partner should be in the same boat as you. When your goals align with your lover’s, your relationship will encounter less friction and be smoother.
#3. You’ve Found Your True Love When You Can Be Yourself Without Worrying
You should be with someone who makes you feel comfortable being yourself. You shouldn’t be afraid to show your silliest or most vulnerable side to your partner because a healthy and lasting relationship builds on trust and support. In other words, your lover should make you feel safe enough to share with them things about yourself and be brutally honest. If you feel like they will judge you or hold it against you, they’re not THE one.
#4. You’ve Found Your True Love When You Have A Good Friendship With Your Partner
Speaking of trust and support, you should have a good friendship with your partner aside from love. Love can make you burn with passion and act irrationally, but a strong friendship can make you truly appreciate your significant other.
You should want to spend time with your partner, not just on romantic dates, but also in the mundane daily life. One of the best signs that you’ve found true love is that you and your partner get excited about making plans with each other.
#5. You Respect Each Other’s Views And Opinions
Arguments are unavoidable in every relationship. It’s how you solve your problems and get over them that matters. The way you deal with conflicts can make or break your bond. You shouldn’t feel like you’re going to a war every time you fight with your partner, or you need to win the argument no matter what.
What you’re looking for is respect and understanding. If you and your partner can respect each other and argue for the sake of your relationship, your bond will last longer and become stronger. The final goal is to solve the conflict and understand the other party’s viewpoints, not to win over them.
#6. You Go Along Well With Each Other’s Families
Meeting the family is intimidating but necessary. You can’t avoid it forever, and if your family doesn’t like your partner, it will be pretty awkward every time you meet them. Your partner won’t blend in, the tension in the room is weird, and you leave your family gathering in a bad mood. Of course, they can still be right for you, but the dinner with your parents won’t be pleasant. When your family adores your partner, you’ll feel like you’ve found a keeper.
#7. You Don’t Have To Question About Your Partner’s Actions Or Words
A strong relationship requires trust, and your partner should earn that trust. If you can’t trust them to stay faithful to you or can’t rely on them, they are not the right person. Follow your gut feelings. If your partner makes you feel uneasy or appears untrustworthy, leave them. You don’t want to spend your life with the wrong choice, do you?
#8. You Can Rely On Your Lover
Speaking of relying on your partner, they should give you the support you need. They can’t magically solve all the problems in your life, but a hug given at the right time and a shoulder to lean on when needed are enough. Your partner should feel like your biggest supporter and will always back you up. You should also make the other feel the same way about you.
#9. You Get Excited About Their Small Details
You don’t need to think about them all the time. That would be obsession, not love. However, you should get excited for date night or miss them when you spend too long not meeting each other. Small details about them can be the highlight of your days, or at least bring a smile to your face because you just found out something new about your partner. Without that longing for your lover, your relationship will be dull.
