Meeting “the one” doesn’t always look like a romantic comedy. Your meet likely didn’t happen as you were almost hit by a car, and your soon-to-be lover pushed you out of the way. Love doesn’t mirror the movies. Love is unique and personal. And it’s more than okay to have your own love story. Knowing that you’re with a great person is one thing. Here are the signs you’ve hit that level.
You can be your real self with him or her
With your love, you can show all the sides of you. The good, the bad and the ugly. It’s easy to be you with your person. You don’t feel like you have to hide your silly side, or quiet your personality down because your partner loves those special qualities about you and would even want to see more. Nobody is perfect. You know you’ve met “the one” when he or she knows this and loves you for your imperfections.
Similar life goals
You know you’ve met your better half when you want to walk similar paths in this thing we call life. Maybe both of you have different fantasies of where you want to travel, or what kind of dog you’ll want to have. But when it comes down to the major things, like deciding whether you want to get married and or have children, you two are holding the same deck of cards. And you both are holding the winning hand.
You can work through things in a healthy way
It doesn’t matter that you and your mate fight, it’s how you fight that makes all the difference. You know you’ve met your match when working through an argument doesn’t feel like putting a Rubik’s Cube back together. You two can get through anything together and knowing that makes you feel safe and secure.
