Finding your forever person is, without a doubt, one of the hardest things in the world to do. I mean, you could spend years with a person and still not know who they truly are. So how do you know that you found the one?
What’s a person supposed to do to find that special someone? How do you figure out that the person you are with is or is not the one for you?
There is no magic formula, but you can definitely keep a lookout for some of these telltale signs to know if you have found your one.
You Don’t Need to Talk to Enjoy Each Other’s Company
For starters, silence doesn’t bother you, and you don’t feel the need to fill the silence with small talk. This is one of the sure signs that you are comfortable with that person.
Plus, you guys don’t feel the need for grand gestures. You don’t need to go on that perfect date like we see in the movies. In fact, if you are happy just hanging out with that person, no matter the time or place, then you guys are truly made for each other.
You could just be getting groceries together, but you will feel like you are having fun. Basically, you both are in your own world even when you are doing mundane, everyday kinds of things.
Of course, this does not mean that you and your partner never talk or express yourselves. In fact, when you are with them, you can talk about your innermost feelings without being awkward. You are fine sharing your most private thoughts with them.
This is the biggest indicator that you trust each other and are not afraid about being vulnerable in front of each other.
You Can Be Yourself Around Them
Besides having fun together, it is also important to feel as if you can be who you truly are in front of your partner. Sometimes, to keep the other person’s interest, we feel the need to put up an act. We behave the way we think the other person wants us to behave.
However, if that’s how it is, and you are always trying to be who they want you to be, then the chances are slim that you will stay together in the long run.
Indeed, for any relationship to work, it’s important that you and your partner don’t feel the need to wear masks. You can be your true selves with the reassuring knowledge that your partner will accept you regardless.
They Respect Your Boundaries
Perhaps the biggest sign that you two are meant for each other is that both of you respect each other’s boundaries. If the other person cannot give you the space you need or respect you as an individual, then do they even love you?
Honestly, if you ask us, we say that there is no love without respect. You need to respect and love yourself, and your partner needs to do the same for you. If you can’t respect each other as individuals, then there is no point in hoping for a happily ever after.
The sort of love that exists without respect isn’t love at all. Rather, it is some twisted version that can more properly be categorized as an unhealthy obsession.
You need to realize that both of you are independent adults with your own dreams and desires. You will know when you have found the one when you are with a person who does not hold you back. Instead, you guys are each other’s emotional support through thick and thin.
You Are Willing to Mend the Relationship If Things Go South
Most importantly, if your partner is willing to invest in the relationship through the many ups and downs that life throws at you, then you have probably found the one.
Seriously, it’s a huge sign that you guys are committed to each other if you are willing to work things out rather than end it all if you guys have a fight. After all, every relationship hits a rough patch every now and then, but the important thing is that you are both willing to mend the relationship.
If you are with a person who realizes their mistake and is willing to apologize and work on themselves, then it means that they actually care about you.
People don’t own up to their mistakes and agree to do better for just anyone. If your partner does this, then they are interested in being with you for the long run.
The same goes for you, too. If you are willing to let go of your anger and spend time trying to understand where they are coming from, it definitely means that you are serious about them, and they are the one for you.
They Bring Out the Best in You
Lastly, there is one other way of knowing that you are with the right person. If your partner brings out the best in you, then you are definitely with the person you are meant to be with.
Honestly, you can only live your best life when you are with the right person. Being with them will always motivate you to do better and to aim higher because your success won’t just matter to you but to them, as well. Just knowing someone is rooting for you can make all the difference.
When we are with the person we love, we want to be our best versions of ourselves. We want to be our bravest, kindest, and funniest selves when we are with our soulmates because we want to make them happy.
