In your heart you think you’ve found the one person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Your only concern is… does he or she feel the same way. If your partner is exhibiting most of these signs your search for “The One” may be over.
Your partner should be genuinely interested in what you have to say. We all taper off occasionally, but if your beau is listening most of the time, he may be a keeper.
She should catch your interest beyond casual conversation and social platitudes. She should have an aspect that truly grips you from within and keeps you waiting, eager to learn more.
Your significant other should always respect you. This means respecting your feelings, space, time, and what’s important to you. Someone who genuinely cares about you will always respect you and is definitely a keeper.
Dating someone who’s too similar to yourself could be sowing the seeds for disaster, but having a core set of beliefs that are alike can make for a lasting relationship.
A difference from others and a difference from yourself are important. Varying interests and strengths also present a way for you to fill each other out and grow together.
If your partner feels like a sanctuary away from the darkness that sometimes plagues your mind, you know you’ve found someone worth holding onto.
Someone who’s too stubborn can be endlessly frustrating, but having a partner who’s eager to engage you is important, a pushover results in emptiness.
Lying in someone’s arms with no worries is comforting, but it’s also important that your dream lover has their feet cemented on solid ground. Someone who is too flighty and distant will not offer the security you need.
Any professional will admonish the importance of trust when dishing out relationship counseling. Having the stability of trust shows that your union is strong and resistant to the turbulence and drama that wreaks havoc on less secure relationships.
It may seem cliché, but when you feel the euphoric flutter within, the burn of your cheeks and the rapid pace of your heart, you know the person you’re with is important.
Sharing a kindred hope for the future signifies that you are both ready to dedicate your lives to what you’re passionate about, and it just may be one-another.
It goes without saying that being attracted to your date is important. It might be what first attracted you to one another, but it’s even more vital that this attraction delve beyond the surface level. You want to be able to look at him or her and see the beauty of their soul.
Your dream lover should certainly be open to the idea of future commitment, if he seems uneasy at the prospect of a long-term relationship, then he may not be the one right now.
Above all, you’ll know you’ve found the one when they capture that special something that seems so elusive. It’s a quality that’s unique and fleeting, but when you meet it you’ll know, and no amount of advice will change how you feel.
