ooking for signs you’ve found the one? How do you know for sure if that special someone – the special one you are crazy about will be nothing but a fling, or if they’d end up being the one? It’s a tricky question and can be difficult at times to spot and predict these signs correctly early on.
However, there are many signs to be on the lookout for in those early stages and as time goes by! In this article, we’ll give you 9 great tips to know and signs you’ve found the special one and if you two are really meant to go the distance. Let’s dive in!
9 great tips to know and signs you’ve found the one – the special one
1). You understand each other
Number one on the list is the fact that you two understand each other. It’s important that no matter what opinions and preferences you might have, you two respect each other’s positions. It’s far more important to understand and support one another than to always think alike!
If they care about your opinion and enjoy listening to what’s in your mind, then they might just as well be the guy or gal you’ve been waiting for all your life!
2). They try to make your life easier instead of harder
When you’re having a rough day, they realize it straight away and try to help you unwind. They will do little things to make you smile, and make an effort when you are feeling blue.
In return, you act the same way towards them. It doesn’t have to be a special date to do something special for someone you love! Little gestures and tiny gifts make your loved one feel special and cherished.
If they are the one, your happiness and comfort will be one of their top priorities.
3). You may argue, but never throw low punches
The ideal couple that never, ever argues simply doesn’t exist. If there is one out there, they are probably bottling up everything that bothers them and it’ll end up exploding in their faces sooner or later.
It’s ok to argue and perhaps even bicker from time to time, but it’s also fundamental that they don’t try and hurt you. If you two are capable of resolving your differences amicably, then this is a great sign that they might be the one you were searching for all along.
Plus, a passionate argument can lead to a passionate night together, so arguing can certainly have its silver lining.
4). You love getting a call or a text from them
At first, it’s all butterflies in your stomach whenever they are around, but what’s important is to check if this feeling of excitement lingers over time.
If you two have been dating for a while and you still get all excited and happy whenever they give you a call, then this is a great sign!
Getting cute texts or sweet phonecalls both improve your day and shows you they’ve been thinking about you, so this is another way of knowing whether they might really be the one.
5). They know your tastes
It’s fundamental to have a partner who knows your dislikes and preferences. Who wants to be with someone for the rest of their lives who just don’t bother to listen?
Does he or she know your favorite flowers? Or if you think that giving someone flowers is just plain corny? Could they order for you if you asked them to? What is your favorite color, drink, food? Can they even tell the color of your eyes? You’d be surprised how many significant others can’t properly answer this question!
If they take the time to get to know you, that’s certainly a great sign!
6). You can enjoy being apart from each other
If you need to spend every single moment of every single day together, then you might be in the first phase of your relationship. It’s infatuation rather than real love, and you might want to give yourself a bit more time before determining if they are indeed the one.
It’s important to enjoy time by yourself, apart from your partner, and then you’ll enjoy their company even further. Even if they are in the same house as you are, you two can still enjoy your separate time and get some well-deserved me-time.
7). They make boring chores fun
Going grocery shopping or cleaning up your home is just plain dull, but necessary. Having the right partner by your side means that even these boring activities can have a silver lining after all. You get to spend time with them, chat and talk about your mutual day.
If they manage to brighten up even the most boring chore, then they truly might be the kind of man or woman you need in your life, and the ideal romantic partner.
8). You can be yourself around them
Let’s face it: We can all be on our A-game 24/7. Sometimes we are grumpy, silly or just plain lazy. Sometimes we don’t put makeup on or get dressed to the nines.
The right guy or girl won’t mind at all. They’ll love the way you are, no matter if you spent two hours making yourself look great or if you just got out of bed.
They’ll appreciate your bad sense of humor, or your terrible sense of style, or how clumsy you are. Whatever your faults, they’ll love you even more for them.
9). You both want to speak about the future
Lastly, it’s super important to know that the two of you want a future together. If they refuse to think past the next week, they might not be the right partner for a long-term relationship. Learn more about how to have a difficult conversation with someone you love in this article.
If your partner wants to speak about what the future holds and make plans with you, then they truly might be the one. Be sure you are both in agreement over the most important issues, such as marriage and whether or not you two want to have kids in the future! It can be a deal-breaker early on in the relationship.
