You have been dating for a while, and you want some confirmation on knowing that he is the one. Maybe you have already read some other article about the signs that he is the right one for you. However, those signs applied to the chap you dated previously as well. So read these other more in-depth ways to know if he is the one. There is one catch though, do not judge him solely on the honeymoon phase. You won't get to know him for real, until after you are over that lovey-dovey phase. If he is indeed the one, this article will put a smile on your face and make you think of him and all the ways he made you feel these steps. Well, let's get to the list right away.
He is your best friend He is your best friend, and you are both very proud of it. No matter what you come back to each other, and talk about anything and everything. You feel like he understands you and you both can have fun no matter where and when. Having this kind of a relationship is remarkable because it is more than just the physical attraction you both love each other on a deeper level. Also, the first person you want to talk to is him whenever something happens - good or bad. If you need advice, he is your go-to person. This is accurate for both of you, and you are both happy about it.
He makes you feel confident You do not need a man to make you feel confident. However, he should never make you feel insecure about yourself. If he makes you feel as you are perfect, he is the one. You can remove your make up without feeling judged or ugly. If he never makes you feel judged and is always your cheerleader, whenever you feel down, he might be the one. It may sound obvious, but there are so many abusive relationships surrounding us that we had to categorize this as a successful event of finding the one.
He listens to what you have to say We do not mean he listens to you in a way you are puppeteering him around. No. We are saying he listens to what you have to say. When you talk, you do not feel like you are being cut off or talking to air. We mean when you talk you know he is hearing what exactly you are saying. This is a feeling you get when you are together, and we hope you are with someone who hears what you are saying.
He makes sacrifices for you May it be long distance, quitting cigarette, or whatever your relationship needs, you both should be able to make sacrifices for the sake of your relationship. If you see him show effort, you should try to reciprocate. Relationships are meaningless without their sacrifices. These sacrifices can be tiny sacrifices, for example, putting your dirty socks in the laundry bin. Sacrifices attest that you love & respect your S.O as much as you love and respect yourself.
He doesn't try to change you Relationships nowadays have gotten very artificial so finding someone genuine and accepting them for their quirks is very important. If your S.O is not constantly trying to change you, that is a win. That sounds awfully sad, but that is where we are at this point. So, if he is not trying to change you and pressures you for things, he might be the one.
You Trust Him If both of you can trust each other completely and are always honest with each other, that is a huge deal. Trust and honesty come hand in hand and is the foundation of any relationship. If there is no trust, there cannot be any love. If you have a mutual trust, you will know he will always support you. That support is vital to have in a committed relationship. Knowing that no matter what you decide to do you will have back up you can count on, is perfection.
You have shared values and life goals Having shared values and life goals are very important when you want to build a life together with someone. We did talk about sacrifice and compromises, but on this topic, you both need to desire the same things. If you are forced into doing something, just for your significant other, in the long term you can start resenting them for it. That love will end in resentment, and one of you will feel like they wasted their life on something they did not even want. So holding fundamental common values and goals is very powerful and can be the greatest deal breaker.
