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 effort 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.
9. They treat everyone with respect.
Treating everyone with respect does not just mean the ones you know, or are related to you. You know you have found a good one, when they are nice and respectful to people who are seemingly ‘inferior’ to them, like a waiter, sweeper, or anyone in the service industry. He/she will never put them down, and will always treat these people with a lot of patience, niceness, and a wholesome attitude.
10. They love your friends, and family, and not just for the sake of it.
This one is probably one of the most important green flags in a relationship. When your partner gets along with your family and friends, and they genuinely want to have a good relationship with them, know that you have hit the jackpot. Lots of people don’t feel the need to foster good relationships with their partner’s family, and that can be a huge turn-off. But, when your partner treats your friends and family like their own and gives them the love and respect they give their own family, it speaks volumes about their character and integrity.
11. They love pets and animals as much as you do.
You can say a lot about a person’s character by seeing how they treat animals. You should never be with anyone who is cruel to animals, as that shows their propensity towards violence, and you never know, they might end up being violent with you even.
But when you are with someone who loves and cares about animals, as much as you do, you know that they have pure hearts. How they treat innocent animals, says a lot about who they are as a person.
