14 Ways To Know You’ve Found Your Soulmate

When some people talk about how they met their soulmates, it almost sounds like a fairy tale, but a lot of them are true.
I said ‘a lot’ because some people tend to over-embellish the truth when they share their love story.
But in the ‘real’ world, how do you tell if your current partner is your soul mate? How can you tell without an iota of doubt that you two were meant to be?
There are several signs that will help you know for sure, and here are 14 ways to know you’ve found The One.
  1. You tell him things you don’t tell anyone else: What you say when you’re drunk doesn’t exactly count here. Rather, the desire to tell him intimate details about your life means you trust him — a major component of successful long-term love.
  2. You let him see you in moments of weakness: It’s easy to be happy with someone when you’re feeling good about life. But what about when you’re not doing so well? Do you want to see him when you’ve been denied a raise, or your pet died or you simply had a bad day? He should be a comfort during tough times, not a burden.
  3. You respect him: You don’t want to change the essence of who he is. There may be stuff that irritates you in everyday life — he insists on wearing his favourite, holey T-shirt, he eats sugar cereal for dinner, he still watches Saturday morning cartoons — but you love him, plain and simple.
  4. You want him to meet your family: You feel proud of him and you want to show him off — as opposed to feeling like you have to make excuses for him.
  5. You can imagine a future together: You don’t have to practice writing your first name with his last name, but do you periodically let your mind wander to picture a life together? Do you imagine yourself getting married to him and having his children?
  6. You’re not afraid to disagree with him: You know that even if you fight, he’ll listen to you and won’t brush you off. He takes you seriously, even when he thinks you’re wrong. He doesn’t rub it in your face when it turns out you’re wrong and he’s right.
  7. You want to work out your major differences: If you do have crucial differences that will impact your future together — different opinions about religion, money or something else — you want to work them out with him, and you believe you can come to a conclusion that will satisfy both of you.
  8. You laugh together: Laughter is one of life’s simplest pleasures — you should definitely be able to crack each other up.
  9. You’re incredibly, utterly attracted to him: Physical chemistry is an undeniably important ingredient in a healthy relationship. And if he’s not perfectly fit or your usual “type”? Even more reason to think he’s the one.
  10. It’s okay to be quiet around him: You don’t feel like you have to fill the space between you with empty chit-chat or other interaction. Instead, you feel an easy comfort.
  11. You feel like yourself around him: You don’t feel like you have to edit your thoughts; you’re not self-conscious or anxious. You can just be yourself.
  12. You don’t feel too jealous: You’re comfortable with him going out with his friends — even female friends. You let each other have your own lives and hobbies.
  13. He makes you a better person: He makes you feel smart, funny, attractive, creative — like the best version of yourself. You feel like he brings out and complements the best parts of you.
  14. He totally understands you: Sometimes it’s that easy. You feel like he understands some essential part of you that you can’t explain or articulate. It’s a warm, comfortable feeling — and one you should have with the person you marry.
