7. You know in your heart you can trust him.
Trust can be a very tricky thing. But with him, you know in your heart he would never risk doing anything that may lead to him losing you. Nothing is that important. He will never stray and he will never jeopardize your love for anything. You can trust him to come back home to you at the end of any night out or weekend away. You can trust that he won’t let you down.
But we’re all humans — imperfect creatures — and if he ever does slip up or makes a stupid mistake, you can guarantee he will find a way to completely make it up to you and make things right.
8. You have no eyes for anyone else.
I’ve always believed that when a person’s eyes start to stray or they actually consider cheating if the thought even so much as crosses their mind, that’s when they should walk away or deeply reevaluate their relationship. If they’re willing to risk losing their significant other for something meaningless, they should either end things altogether or figure out what led them down this road and begin taking the steps towards fixing it.
What you have with your life partner is rare. You’d never even think to do something stupid that might mess it up. You’re both faithful and loyal to each other because you know what you have is real and extremely difficult to find, and you never want it to end.
9. You feel complete like nothing is missing.
You have no weight on your shoulders anymore when it comes to love. You now feel a sense of completeness, like nothing is missing. Even if you’re having a terrible day, just knowing you have him helps you get through anything. He brings brightness to your life. He makes you feel as though the entire world could turn its back on you, but he would still be there standing by your side. It’s you and him against the world.
10. You cannot imagine a life without him.
Even just the thought of something bad happening to him makes your heart sting, your stomach turn. You cannot imagine a life without him in it. He’s your world, and you wouldn’t want it any other way.
11. The love you have is simple but powerful.
He comes with no ridiculousness, no bullshit, no games. It is just that simple. And what you have built together is simple because the love and care you have for each other come so naturally, it is never a struggle.
It is also so powerful because he is your everything — through the ups, the downs, and everything in between. He is your best friend, your teammate, your rock. The love you and your life partner have has given you both the ability to overcome anything life throws your way and to get through it all together. Side by side.
