Getting into a relationship with someone is like gambling. You never know if the relationship is going to work out, but you can use clues and past experiences to determine if someone actually is or could be the one.
If you’re waffling between whether or not your partener is “The One” that you’re going to eventually spend the rest of your life with, here are a few ways to tell:
1. Your partner have a positive outlook
A positive attitude would certainly make your future together with your partner a brighter one. Ideally, your perfect match would bring a positive mood to your life anytime you are around them.
2. You know what it means to be a good friend to your partner
Feelings of emotional security and companionship predicted happiness for couples over long-term relationships.
3. You are truly your best self when you are with your partner
An ideal match for you would be someone who helps you to be your best self by encouraging your growth and development within the framework of a committed relationship. In this way, you feel securely emotionally protected and you can spread your wings and be amazing.
4. You fell comfortable and happy just doing nothing together
A comfortably matched couple is a couple who are happy just to be together with nothing to do.
They can have a great conversation with no TV or WiFi to disturb the wonderful feeling that they get by being in each other’s presence.
5. You accept each other
Even the happiest person notice things about their partner that drive them mad. You may think a perfect match involves two people who find no fault in each other, but that’s not the case.
That means you don’t have to love their terrible jokes, but if you can shrug your shoulders and accept it, you’re right for each other.
6. The relationship doesn’t feel like hard labor
All relationships require work. But there’s a difference between toiling away at something for what feels like a paltry reward and working towards something that makes you happy.
7. You know how to communicate when you’re upset
Conflict resolution looks different for every couple, so it’s important to find a partner who matches your own style of tackling issues.
