Love at first sight is actually real. According to relationship psychologists, if you and your partner have regular contact with each other, you can actually tell if they are your soulmate within the first 6 months of meeting them, often much sooner.
These 9 signs are what love experts have said are the most common ways to tell if you’ve found the one for you.
1. Things Come Easily To You
We’ve all been told that love hurts and couples have to fight for each other constantly to stay in love. While love may not always be easy, you should feel like you’re living your best life with them. They know everything about you and want to see you shine. They don’t play games with you or try to keep score in the relationship. Things just feel right and nearly effortless.
2. You’ve Been Honest From The Start
Relationships are always built with a strong foundation. You can’t have a fruitful partnership with someone who is constantly making waves when you catch on to a lie. When the two of you are honest with each other, it shows that you have a deep, mutual respect for one another.
3. Your Doubts Are Gone
Maybe other partners made you feel insecure or unworthy. In this relationship, you are confident and vibrant. You can rely on your partner to treat you like you deserve. We all bring baggage to our new relationships. You and your partner should feel comfortable discussing your past failures in love so you can learn how to avoid those mistakes together and grow as a team.
4. You’ve Never Loved Yourself More
Your self-worth should never be determined by a partner, but you can’t help but feel incredible all the time thanks to their affection. They worship your body and mind so much that it’s impossible for you to not acknowledge how intelligent and beautiful you are.
5. You Both Want To Be Together
The two of you will make sacrifices, big and small, just to spend more time together. Maybe they will always make plans to have lunch together on your breaks or you’ll shuffle around your schedule to squeeze in some quality time with them. The both of you give as much as you receive so you can feel wanted.
6. You’re Not Closed Off
It’s easy to write off love after a strew of horrible dates, but going into a new relationship with an expectation to fail will only set you up for heartbreak. If the two of you are open to love and don’t put up any walls from the start, then that’s a really wonderful sign for your future.
7. You Are Each Other’s Confidants
Your lover should also be your best friend. If you’re going to spend the rest of your life with someone, then they need to make you laugh, hold you when you cry, and let you vent when you’re stressed. You and your partner shouldn’t feel like any topic is off-limits.
8. You Both Plan Ahead
If you’re making vacation plans months in advance and talk about wanting kids in the future, then your relationship is rock solid. When you both imagine where you’ll be in a few years, if your partner is in your fantasy, then it’s true love. You and your partner have already discussed your aspirations and the two of you share similar goals. You’re on the same path, and there’s nobody else you’d rather hold your hand along the way.
9. They Nurture You
Your partner sees your best qualities and always tries to bring them out of you. They also recognize areas where you could improve and they try to help you grow the best you can. This doesn’t mean that they should ask you to drastically change your appearance for their own selfish desires. If they know that you to make changes in your life, they do everything they can to ensure that you’re the best you can be.
