Monogamy isn’t for everyone, just ask anyone in the world that’s been cheated on or dumped when things got too serious. But if you’re a guy who’s ready to settle down with someone and have a real future with them, then here are some signs you need to look for to see if the girl you’re with is really the one and only. Trust us, the answers are right in front of your face.
YOU’RE ABLE TO TRAVEL WITH YOUR LIFE PARTNER
Let’s face it, not everyone is able to go on a backpacking trip or wander around Europe and get along all the time. But if you find that you and your girl are actually enjoying every bit of your trip without getting into any petty arguments, then you both clearly have a lot of chemistry. If you’re not sure yet, take your partner on a trip and see if your relationship is strong enough to put up with so much “solo time” on the road.
YOU CAN LIVE TOGETHER
If the thought of living under the same roof isn’t the worst thing in the world, then you’re in business, especially if you’re both already living together and truly get along, except for the occasional micro fight. You’re OK with washing your partner’s undies, and don’t really care about who’s doing the dishes anymore, as you’ve both found a way to work it out. When you’re that comfortable with each other, it really shows you’re capable of living under the same roof forever.
YOU CAN BE YOURSELF AROUND HER
You don’t have to pretend around her or hide certain aspects of your personality. You can be your own person without having to censor yourself and she’ll still love you no matter what, because you certainly don’t want to spend your life with someone you don’t feel comfortable sharing your innermost personal thoughts with.
THE SEX IS MIND-BLOWINGLY AWESOME
You have sex in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening, and everything in between that. Well, ideally you do. You may be the type that does it every now and then too, but when you do it it’s mindbogglingly amazing! You know the person you’re with is a keeper when you feel like no one can ever give you that much pleasure, and knows your body from head to toe. Even when it’s bad you both still enjoy it. That’s how you know you can’t get enough of each other.
YOU SHARE THE SAME INTERESTS
You’re not always going to find a girl who’s into Star Trek, Star Wars, or loves the same sports team you do. But shared interests go beyond mutual hobbies. It means having similar core values and ways of thinking about things like having children at a certain age, traveling around the world, or living in a certain place that will prevent you from getting into fights in the future. Being on the same page is more important than liking the Patriots.
THAT AWKWARD SILENCE BETWEEN YOU IS OKAY
Most couples who aren’t meant to be hate the idea of those overly awkward quiet moments when no one’s saying anything at all. So they try to flood the air with conversational fillers. But if you’re truly in love, you can stand those moments where you’re together in sheer silence and feel completely comfortable because you simply thrive on having that person sitting or laying next to you.
YOU SEE HER EVERYWHERE
When you’re out on a business trip or simply out and about and she’s not with you, you start seeing her everywhere. Maybe it’s a girl with the same hairstyle, skin tone, or style of clothing, but you always think of her. When everything reminds you of her, it means she’s always on your mind. So you can stop looking for anyone else, that’s for sure!
YOU LOVE DOING NOTHING TOGETHER
It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as you’re together, chilling, staring at the ceiling, singing out loud, or checking videos on your phone. You could both be laying on the couch watching Netflix and chilling with pizza and a 6 pack, and that’s enough for you both. You don’t consider the fact that you’re not doing something crazy a waste of time because you simply love spending time together, just the two of you.
YOU DON’T MIND APOLOGIZING TO HER
Even when you’re not wrong, it simply doesn’t matter anymore. You just want to move forward with the relationship without playing a silly game of “who’s right?” and “who’s wrong.” You spent most of your life wanting to be right all the time. But if you realized that this has changed and you’re willing to settle a petty argument with her because you love her so much and want to make things right, you’ve found someone you truly care for.
YOU SEE A FUTURE TOGETHER
Call us crazy, but at the end of the day, your mind, heart, and soul will tell you if it simply feels right. No one will every be able to tell you if “she’s the one” better than yourself. Do you care about her so much that you’d be willing to give anything, or almost anything to see her happy? Does your love feel that unconditional? How do you envision you two in the future? Is there room for her in your life, your plans, your world? If you happen to see her in every plan you make about your future, then you obviously can’t think of being with anyone else but her. We’ll even dare to say that you, my friend, may have found the one.
