There’s a special thrill to going on a date. You want to look your best, you’re both nervous and excited about how it’ll go, and your heart is racing a little because you definitely are at least a little attracted to the person, or why else would you agree to the date? If you don’t click, it’s all good, because you know it’s not going anywhere. When you do click, that’s another story. You start getting haunted by the question of whether this is the right person for you or not.

The more challenging part is that it’s so easy to end up with the wrong person and miss many alarming signs. There are some tips here though that we’re about to tell you to help you know for sure whether you’re with the right one for you, so read on and find your soulmate.

Be Confident Around Them

Naturally, we all want to show the best version of ourselves around the person we’re dating, yet it’s not the best sign if you’re overly nervous and keeps on questioning yourself when you’re with them. We all have our quirks, which we should never be embarrassed about. The right person for you will find them attractive. You also need to feel confident enough that you can be yourself with your significant other. If you’re constantly feeling self-conscious or if you feel that they don’t appreciate everything about you, they’re not right for you. Love is accepting the person you choose to be with as a package and admiring every little thing that makes them who they are because, at the end of the day, you love them for being them.

Communication Is Key

One of the eternal challenges that men and women face in a relationship is that they may not be able to get their point across to one another. Even though women may be more verbally expressive than men, their emotions can sometimes be confusing. This confusion is sometimes a little overwhelming to their partner. A good way to resolve this is having a list of questions for your girlfriend that can help you both clearly define what you expect from each other as partners. Asking direct questions helps you both work on the relationship in a healthy way, and it’s also a sign that you’re invested in this, and that’s an excellent indication that you’ve made the right choice.

They’re Your Team Member, Not the Enemy

Arguments and disagreements are inevitable, but the key is knowing it’s not about proving you’re right and that it’s not a competition. Whatever the discussion is about, you must remember that you want to reach a solution to become a stronger team. One of the main reasons people look for “the one” is that they don’t want to be alone; they need this person who makes life easier and happier. Finding this person means you found the part that’s missing from your life that finally makes you feel whole. This being said, know that at the end of the day, you’re on each others’ side.

They’re the Same Around People

You can never really know someone if you haven’t seen how they’re like in the outside world as well as yours. Seeing your partner around their friends, family, coworkers, and even strangers helps you see them for who they truly are. It’s easy to pretend to be someone else around one person, but it’s pretty difficult to continue pretending around everyone. To be absolutely sure that this is the one you want to share your life with, you have to see all their sides and accept them.

You Love Who You Are With Them

A good partner is one who brings out the best in you and helps you excel better in every aspect of your life. This is one of the most crucial factors that decide whether you’re with the right person or not, but also one of the most difficult to notice. Love is blind, unfortunately, and many times people fall into the trap of getting too attached to the one they’re with, not seeing they have a negative effect on them. Ask yourself this: how do you feel about yourself? Do you like the person you are when you’re with your partner? If you’re unable to answer them, then they’re wrong for you.

We go on many dates to find the person we want to spend our lives with, but sometimes we forget why we want to spend our lives with someone in the first place. That being said, we must always remind ourselves why we’re doing this. Finding a partner is not to merely be in a relationship, but it’s to find the one who makes life worthwhile; a best friend, someone you feel passionate about, who makes your worst days pass by quickly and the good ones become a thousand times better. If this is what you have with your significant other, then you finally found the one.
