You are in a relationship, and spin the perfect love, and, legitimately, you wonder: how to know if it is the right one? But is it really possible to know if you have met your soul mate? This person who will accompany you on a daily basis for the rest of your days? Obviously, no study, no analysis, no article can ever answer you with certainty. But today, Talking about Love has identified certain criteria which show that there is a good chance that it will be!
How do you know if he is the right one?
1 / You are both yourself
A great hint that it’s the right one: you and your partner love you for who you really are! Without idealizing yourself, or playing a role in order to pass yourself off as someone you are not. The mere presence of the other is enough to make you happy and fill you with admiration. You are proud of your darling, and vice versa. In these eyes, you are charming, funny, intelligent, etc … And vice versa! If in addition you never feel the need to impress the other, because you can already do it well just by being you … That is still fantastic.
2 / You know how to manage your disputes
No, that doesn’t mean you never have one. We can never say it enough; all couples enter conflict stages at one time or another, so don’t worry if it happens! But that, you two have understood. You are not afraid to touch on sensitive subjects, and do not run away from conflicts. And you try hand in hand to solve the problem together, you listen to each other, and try not to get carried away in an exaggerated way. If you are generally satisfied with the way you settle your disputes, then this is a great sign for your couple!
3 / The life of the other interests you
A relatively reliable sign that your partner is the right one: you are both interested in the life of the other. You never thought before that looking at old photo albums together can be an activity that connects you, and yet! The smallest detail of his past life, his childhood, interests you, and you always want to know more! You can be sure that, if he didn’t consider you the right one, he wouldn’t bother doing all of this, or asking all these questions!
4 / You leave little or no room for drama
Which, I remind you, does not mean that you are not fighting! But when you do, you stay mature, and do it like two adults with their heads on their shoulders. You know how to recognize when you are wrong, you listen to the other, you are able to recognize when the other presents points where he is right, you apologize if you ever go over the line. In short, your arguments serve to improve your relationship, not to serve it. Otherwise, be careful! If one of you regularly has fun creating drama, using emotional blackmail, manipulating emotions, etc … Then it’s time for you to clear things up.
5 / Your entourage has the same opinion as you
If everyone around you, your family, your friends urges you to stop dating your man, then in most cases they are right (but not always!). It is that with hindsight, they are able to see things that you cannot see for yourself. But on the contrary, if your entourage supports you in your choice, and encourages your couple, then, be sure that it is an excellent sign for both of you! Of course, it is not always wise to follow the advice of those around you to the letter, but know how to take a step back from things … For your good!
6 / You know how to make yourself happy
When two people share strong, close ties, they know what the other wants and needs. Do you know how to make your partner happy? Can he make you happy in return? It can be in the smallest details, the smallest touches! Do you know how to change each other’s ideas? Take away all his bad stress, his fatigue? Another good point for you!
7 / You have the same priorities in life
Whether you look very similar or are completely different, one thing matters most: your compatibility. Because if you intend to last, and therefore build a future together, you must necessarily have similar objectives and goals in life! You will quickly see if your vision of the future is different or not. If you really feel that at some point things will get stuck, then this is rarely a good sign for the duration of a relationship…
8 / You respect yourself
Mutual respect is perhaps one of the most crucial things to maintain a healthy relationship. Respect is the basis of any couple. Without respect, there is simply no chance that you can build a great future together that will last.
Combined with communication and trust, you are definitely equipped to face all the obstacles that will arise throughout your relationship. It is not a question of respecting your partner only intermittently (when you are in public for example), but indeed at every moment of your life. Otherwise, don’t expect your story to last!
Try to see how many criteria you and your darling can validate. The more you validate, the greater the chances that it is definitely the right one for you!
