Have you ever wondered if you're with the right person? Or have you ever felt like you were with the right person, but you weren't sure if your relationship was going to work out? These are normal feelings, especially when you've been with someone for a long time.
When you're having these feelings, it's easy to question your relationship and whether or not you should continue it. Don't worry— your relationship isn't doomed just because you're in a slump. Here are 14 signs you really are with the right person, and you should hold onto them tight:
You don't just love each other— you actually like each other. You enjoy their company, and you like to do things with them. This is something you might not think about at first, but it's important to stop and make sure you actually like who you're with (at least most of the time).
2. You accept and respect each other
You know your partner isn't perfect, but you accept their flaws and respect their opinions anyway. You might disagree sometimes, but you never belittle each other.
3. You're good at fighting
Fighting is inevitable in every relationship— even the most seemingly perfect ones. But couples who make it through tough times know how to fight. They're never abusive, and they always take a step back if it gets too heated. They always apologize and make up, and they always come back stronger than before.
4. You make each other better
You don't try to change each other, but you're constantly trying to better yourselves for each other. You want to be the best version of yourself, because that's what your sweetheart deserves.
5. You enjoy each other's company
You love spending time together and going on dates. You're always laughing and having a good time, even if you're not doing anything.
6. You trust each other
You never worry about your sweetheart going out because you know he'll always come home. If you fully trust each other, you probably have a great thing going.
7. You're happy when they're happy
Nothing makes you happier than seeing your sweetheart smile, and you'll do anything to make each other happy.
When you talk about the future, you always include your partner in your plans. You find yourself saying "we" instead of "I," and "us" instead of "me."
10. You value your time together
You both have busy schedules, so you always make the most of the time you have together.
11. You would never abuse each other
You could never even think of hurting your sweetheart emotionally, mentally or physically. They're too special to you, and you just know they wouldn't do anything to hurt you either.
12. You don't want them to change
People sometimes go into relationships thinking they can change the other person, but not you. There might be small things that bother you about your partner, but you don't want to change them at all. You love them, flaws and all.
13. You can be yourself
You love getting dressed up for a night out with your sweetheart, but you also couldn't care less if they see you looking like a total mess. You're comfortable saying and doing embarrassing things, because you know they'll love you no matter what.
14. You just know
As cliche as it sounds, when you know, you know. It's hard to explain if you haven't been there, but something just tells you you're with the right person. It's almost like coming home after a long vacation— it feels safe, warm and comfortable.
