In an ideal world, love life would look like a perfect romantic movie peppered with every emotion you can think of. Challenges will knock you over but it’s the compassion and sense of belonging that’ll convince you to stick around and not run away just yet.
Regardless of all that is said and almost done, love doesn’t have to happen with an instant click; it takes time and some extra effort. If you have been devoting hours and mindless daydreams to someone, then chances are that you really enjoy that person’s companionship but is he/she really the one you should marry?
Let’s find out!
1. Unbroken support
Whether you are moving away to a different place for studies or want to travel solo, they would still be supportive and know how to work things out. They appreciate you for being comfortable in your own skin and let patience be the key motivation in the relationship.
2. You respect your partner's independence
Don’t we all browse through 'forever alone’ memes and wish we would find someone, someday to share similar thoughts with. But in reality, once you find that person, the comfort is in respecting each other’s personal space. If he/she wants to travel solo or with friends, it’s should not make you mad.
3. Your comfort level is on point
Your partner has witnessed you in your glorious days but what is important is if that person has seen you with messed up hair and sweatpants, blowing your nose and eating nachos in bed. It is days like these that matter when you have skipped going to the gym or to the parlour. It’s when love proves to be the strongest.
4. It’s all about the effortless romance
You don’t always plan dates anymore. It can be watching Netflix at home, chatting all night or just going out for a couple of drinks at your favourite bar nearby, you both love doing the same things and it all flows naturally. The romance is effortless but you still know how to up your sex game.
5. Unwavering trust
A binding factor in any successful relationship is undoubtedly 'trust'. Trusting someone with all your heart is hard work but it takes effort and honesty to achieve it. You know you have found the one when your jealousy level has deteriorated to an extent that it almost doesn’t exist.
6. You are never out of sync
Whether its music, movies, books, politicians, Kardashians or football – you know your partner in and out and no one can mess up your game here. You both synchronise better than google drive and your thoughts are always on the same page.
7. You talk about it
Unlike insecure couples, your relationship is bounded by trust and compassion. Instead of putting things under the rug, you let it out in the open and make due changes and adjustments. These things only help you grow in your relationship.
While all these things signal a strong connection, do not forget the importance of compatibility as well as shared interests and values. When all these factors are in harmony, you just know it’s right. When you’ve found the one, don’t let anything get in your way. Hold on to that person for the rest of your life.
