7 Signs You Found ‘the one’
Are you very confident in your relationship? If you notice these 7 signs, it’s highly likely that you met someone who you have a very special connection to- the kind of the relationship that doesn’t come easily. Simply put, you just met ‘the one’.
You’re truly content together
Good relationships are just that. You don’t have to wait for your partner to get a good job, stop a distasteful habit or for something specific to happen for you to be happy with each other. If you are waiting for happiness in your relationship then you are in the wrong place. Getting that good job may make life better financially but nothing can change the fact that you are just not content with each other. If you are soul mates, you should find true happiness with each other regardless of the issues your facing in life.
You don’t have to change a thing!
You know you met the one when you feel loved for who you are. You don’t have to feel like you need to change something in order to be good enough for your partner. You never have to impress your partner because he/she sees good things in you everyday.
You know how to manage conflict
Conflict is a healthy part of relationships because it shows that you are addressing issues that will help to improve both parties. A couple that doesn’t argue is actually in trouble. However, you need to resolve conflicts together. The issue is in how you manage conflicts and how well the relationship works after that.
Your partner shows interest in your life
When you know what is going in each other’s lives, it is easy to avoid bringing in third parties that mess up the relationship. You likely found the one if you know the specifics of his work, personal life and even stories of his childhood. If you are more interested in knowing everything that goes on in your partner’s life then it shows you are on the right track.
You know what makes your partner happy
When you experience a deep connection with someone, it is easy to know their wants and needs. Think about the small things that make your partner happy. Do you know how to help them ease stress? When your partner is struggling with certain issues, you should be able to help him out. You should know that he will do the same for you.
You share the same values in life
Compatibility is a very important element of strong long term relationships. You should be able to look into your future and be sure that your partner will help you meet certain personal and career goals. If your priorities blend well, you will have a much better chance of being together for a long time.
Most importantly, strong relationships are based on the foundation of mutual respect. When you respect your partner, issues like physical abuse, unfaithfulness and deception will be out of the picture.
As you try to figure out whether you found the one, remember that no one is perfect but you deserve to be in a relationship that is healthy for you.
