Sometimes it can be hard to know when you have found “the one,” the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. I’ve been dating the love of my life for over two years, and it’s been a crazy ride. However, I wouldn’t want to spend my life with anyone else. Here’s ten ways I knew I’d found the one.


1. They’re Your Best Friend

It’s important when you are in a relationship for your partner to be your friend too.  Knowing you’re going to spend the rest of your life with your best friend is an amazing feeling.


2. You Miss Them Every 3 seconds

Whether you just saw them or you haven’t seen them in a week, there’s always an ache in your heart to be with them.

3. You’re Comfortable Around Each Other

You put on the sweats and let it all out around them. You don’t mind them seeing the other side of you.


4. You Love Their Quirks

You love all the silly, partially annoying, stupid things they do. Whether it’s chewing with their mouth open or leaving the seat up, you love them enough to put up with it.

5. You Think About Them All the Time

The smallest things make you think of them. No matter where you are or what you are doing, somehow they come into your mind.


6. You Make Sacrifices for Them

You want them to be happy, and that means making sacrifices and compromises. You go out of your way to surprise them and see them smile.


7. You Talk about Your Future Together

Without realizing it, you end up talking about where you’re going to live, how many kids, the kind of house, etc. It just seems natural that you would live together.


8. You Feel Safe Around Them

You never have to worry that they would do anything intentionally to harm you. You know they would go out of their way to protect you, and you would do the same for them.

9. They’re Your Person

As Meredith Gray and Christina Yang always say, they’re your person. They are your go-to no matter what.

10. You Want to Tell Them All the Exciting Things About Your Day

You can’t wait to tell them about the squirrel you saw eating trash outside your apartment or the funny thing your teacher said in class. You want to share your life with them no matter how small or unimportant it may seem.
