Compatibility can sometimes be found in the oddest places. And these 11 signs show you that you’re so compatible, it’s almost cheesy.
Some couples are just over the moon and smitten, with spring fever written all over their faces. You see them strolling in parks or malls hand in hand, with their dreamy eyes every time they look at each other. You see these couples giving hugs and blowing kisses to each other every five minutes. Not only do they look like they are made for each other, but they give off that feeling of endless love, the embodiment of the word soulmates. But how about you? How do you know that you and your partner are also Made For Each Other (MFEO)?
You may just be oblivious to it, but here are the signs that you and your partner are a match made in heaven.
#1 Déjà vu.
Have you ever had the feeling that you have been in a place before? But you swear that you have never been there? How about déjà vu in talking to people? Have you ever had that feeling like you have known someone your whole life but you have just met them?
This feeling is usually experienced by couples who are made for each other. Try to recall the first time you have approached your partner, the first time you have had that long conversation and you just could not stop talking to each other. If you felt like you are talking to someone that you have known all your life and not someone you just met, then chances are this relationship could lead to something stronger.
#2 Dreamy, steamy eyes.
You have been hearing it in movies, especially in romantic comedies, and you have heard friends tell you this, “The way you look at each other…” There is something about made for each other couples and the way they stare into their lover’s eyes.
You will never see them replicate the same look toward anyone else. It’s as if they have that dreamy, but not empty, stare. Like they cannot get enough. Like there is no tomorrow. That’s one sign that you cannot deny your feelings toward your significant other.
#3 Stealing kisses, whispering sweet nothings, the little things.
If you and your partner have been together for years and you still steal kisses from each other, hug each other randomly, and whisper sweet nothings to each other, then you must not let each other go.
It’s the thoughtfulness that makes the gesture special. Sometimes, people take the presence of other people for granted, especially if they are used to being around each other all the time. But with couples who are made for each other, every little gesture from sticking a post-it note on the fridge to handing them the PlayStation controller is a memory to be treasured.
#4 The story of us.
Do you notice how you and your partner react whenever friends or random people ask how you have met or how your love story goes? There is nothing sweeter than retelling how the two of you fell in love, and the way you deliver this story says a lot about you, your partner, and your relationship with them.
#5 Because it’s true, you do finish each other’s sentences.
It might sound like this expression has been used so many times to denote how you and your significant other behave, but it is one truly corny sign that you are made for each other. Finishing each other’s sentences does not only equate to knowing each other that well, it also says that your partner is confident enough to voice out loud that they know your preferences.
You know what’s even cornier than this? It’s when one of you is about to ask a question and the other already blurts out the answer before the question is finished!
#6 The photographic tendency.
Not all of us possess a photographic memory, and yet, when we are irrevocably in love with someone, we tend to remember every single detail. You will notice if they said an expression that they have never used before, or when they start to change the way they say and react to things. It might be corny, but you remember what they wore on a particular event that you guys went to or what you did that one Saturday night, even if it happened years ago.
#7 Arguments are normal, and so are disagreements.
There is a certain kind of relationship wherein you can say that you hate your partner so much and yet you still love them without the feeling of resentment or wanting to break up. It is in knowing that disagreements are nothing out of the ordinary and in believing that these are challenges that will nurture the relationship, and not drive you away.
#8 You want to go to the beach and your significant other tends to hide from the sun.
Some of the best relationships are the ones where they do not force each other to like what they don’t. One sign that the one you are dating is a keeper and that you are a match made in heaven is that they do not impose. Just because your partner loves cooking, it does not mean you should be taking cooking lessons tomorrow.
It does help the relationship if you show interest and give opinions, but it does not make sense to involve yourself in things that you do not like. If your partner respects this and is happy with it, then it’s surely a sign and you might want to consider keeping the relationship in the long run.
#9 Butterfies in the stomach, stay in the stomach.
They say that when you have been in a relationship for a long time, the excitement and the sparks die down. If your significant other still gives you butterflies in the stomach whenever you see them or do special things with them, then you must just have found someone that is really meant for you.
#10 Safe and sound.
Feeling safe at all times should not be taken for granted. According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, you do not reach the stage of being loved and the feeling of belongingness without having experienced safety and security first. Being with your lover should never make you feel any doubt, not about the relationship or if there will be a shooter with a gun in front of you, you must be certain that they will take the bullet for you instead. If that does not spell out made for each other, what else will?
#11 Five years from now… The coveted future.
The infamous question of where you both see yourselves in five years or ten years or even fifty years. If your partner has already laid down the road map for you and definitely sees a future with you in it, then there is no doubt that this truly corny sign says that you guys are made for each other, totally!
These signs may or may not be apparent at first. But once you see and feel them, you know that the relationship you have isn’t just the run of the mill type. You might consider being exclusive and stay in it for as long as possible, after all, you know now that you are both truly and irrevocably made for each other.
