How do you know if they are right for you?

If you’ve been dating someone for a while or met someone new that you feel might be special, you might be wondering – how do you know if someone is right for you? Humans have pondered this question for hundreds of years. Some have even written entire books about it.

Lucky for you, there are some signs that you can look out for that can help determine if you’ve found the right person. Here, we help you crack the code to love’s enigma.

They’re easy to be around and spend time with.

The first sign that you should look out for is whether they’re easy to spend time with. If you often feel uncomfortable spending time with this person, or if it’s challenging to share your opinions, it could mean that it wouldn’t be sustainable in a long-term relationship.

The right partner will naturally gel with you and give you plenty of opportunities to bounce off each other. This is crucial for a relationship to grow organically.

You aren’t afraid to be yourself.

If you feel like you can’t be yourself around your partner or the person you’re interested in, chances are they aren’t suitable for you. Closing off your real personality to meet the requirements of someone else is a sure path to unhappiness. The right partner will not only accept your real personality and quirks. They’ll love you for it.

You share and agree on the same important values.

Opposites attract. There is no doubt about that. However, you and your partner need to be on the same page regarding your core values. Poor compatibility in this area can lead to real problems later in the relationship after the honeymoon period has passed.

However, the great thing about this is that discussing your values isn’t hard to do if you’ve been dating someone for a while. It can even be fun!

There’s natural chemistry.

You don’t need to watch hours of romantic movies or read Nicholas Sparks to know that the best relationships happen naturally. This is another telltale sign that you have found the right person. Check if you naturally bounce off each other, if you laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones), or if periods of silence aren’t awkward.

They make you feel like a better person.

The secret to a long relationship isn’t just finding someone that you love at first sight. The right person for you also needs to make you feel like you’re the best version of yourself. Or at least like you want to become a better person. One of the best things about being with the right individual is that you get to evolve and support each other in becoming better in various aspects of life.

Finding the right partner isn’t easy. It can feel overwhelming and almost impossible to do. The best thing to remember is that there is always someone who will be a natural match. So, don’t be afraid to get out there, date and meet people.
