It is not Hollywood, and there are no music queues to reveal that you and your partner are meant to last. So how do you know that you've found that special someone? The one
for you? Here are 9 real-life signs that your relationship will be one for the books.
#1 You Can Spend Time Apart
You and your partner can agree to make separate plans and not be constantly texting or phoning each other. You can head out for a night with the girls, and he can watch the game with the guys with no problems. In fact, you encourage a little time apart.
#2 You Respect Each Other's Need For Space
If you come home in a bad mood after a long day at work, your partner will respect if you need a few moments to decompress and relax. Similarly, if he needs time to think about a big decision or to take a walk as a way to de-stress, you have no trouble letting him go.
#3 You Can Be Yourself
You're not just comfortable around him, you can be your complete self. You can cry, share your insecurities, talk about your fears...there is no side of you that he hasn't already seen. He can also be himself around you, and share with you the parts of him that he would otherwise hide away.
#4 You Haven't Lost Your Playfulness
That goofy, flirty and fun attitude you shared when you first got together hasn't died away. You still tickle and tease, laugh and joke and be silly together no matter how many years you've been dating.
#5 He Can Call You Out
If you're being stubborn, or over-obsessing, your partner isn't afraid to be honest with you. He knows you so well that he sees through what you're doing, but of course, he handles the situation with care.
#6 He's Your Shoulder To Cry On
It's like he can predict a breakdown before it happens, and is there to pick up all of the pieces. He knows when you're dealing with a stressful scenario and trying to keep it locked up inside, and he's ready hold you and comfort you when you're ready to talk.
#7 You Have An Open Dialogue
When you feel hurt, you can tell your partner. No passive aggressive fighting, no petty jabs, no sarcastic remarks. Pure honesty is the key to creating a healthy relationship, and you've got it down.
#8 You Miss Each Other
When you're out with friends, or when you're at the grocery store alone, you feel a little pang of 'something is missing'. It might be slight, but it's a sign that you would rather be around your partner than anyone else.
#9 You Love 'The Little Things'
You're just like one of those cheesy memes on Tumblr, you love forehead kisses and cuddling and good morning texts. You want to walk arm in arm and talk about nothing and stay in bed all day just basking in each other's company.
