You know you are with the right person when they understand or try to understand what you are going through. They might not have gone through the same thing, but they respect you and love you enough to try to understand your struggles.
Someone who unfailingly stands beside you, and tries to help you with your difficulties, no matter what, is the person you should always be with.
2. They make you feel comfortable.
One of the biggest green flags in a relationship is when your partner never makes you feel uncomfortable about anything. You can always talk to them about anything you like, and they will be there with open ears and an open mind.
Anything that bothers you, you can talk to them freely, and they will be there to make sure that both of you can work through it in a healthy way, without any judgments or adverse reactions.
3. They never play games.
You know you are with the right person when they follow through with their promises and never keep you hanging. If they tell you they will call you, they will call you. If they tell you that they will meet you at 5 in the evening, they will turn up at 5 sharp.
When you are with the right person, you will never have to wonder what is going on or where you stand in the relationship; everything will be crystal clear to you.
4. They help you be a better person.
The right kind of partner will always help you become the very best version of yourself, and help you wholeheartedly in achieving your true potential. At the same time, they will also work on themselves and their flaws, and always strive to be the best partner to you and a better human being.
5. They give you space.
Being with the one you love is always something you will look forward to, but at times you might need some time for yourself too. And guess what? Your partner will never make you feel bad about it. They will understand the importance of personal space, and will always trust you and love you enough to give you that.
They will not a big deal out of it if you choose to spend an evening or two with a friend or decide to go to sleep early, instead of watching a movie with them.
6. They admit their mistakes.
Sometimes things can go wrong in a relationship, and fights and arguments are a part and parcel of them. But if you are dating someone who admits their mistakes, apologizes, and actually works on them, then you have finally found “The One”.
It is not always easy to own up to your flaws, and some people fail miserably at it, but if you are with someone who does not hesitate to apologize for their mistakes, know that you have found a keeper.
7. They are comfortable with silence.
Silence can sometimes serve as a litmus test when it comes to judging whether you are in a healthy relationship or not. You know you are in love with the right person when they are comfortable with the occasional silence in the relationship.
Loving each other does not mean you will have to keep on talking and talking; enjoying each other’s presence even when you have nothing to say speaks volumes about the person you are with and the kind of relationship you share with each other.
8. They have a lot of passion in themselves.
And this does not just mean in the bedroom, even though that is equally important. Always be with someone who is passionate about something in their lives, whatever that is. It may be cooking, reading, playing sports, or even knitting, it doesn’t really matter; as long as they are putting in a lot of efforts in being better at it with every passing day and are trying to improve themselves, instead of watching Netflix all the time.
A person who wants to grow is the best kind of person to be with.
