15 signs you’ve found your life partner

Knowing your partner is ‘the one’ you’ll spend your life with takes more than just a feeling, it’s all the little things they do for you, a foundation of trust and knowing you can rely on them, whatever the weather. It’s not an easy call to make, but when you’ve found someone who has even half of these qualities and shows you them regularly, then you’ve found a pretty good one. Maybe even the one.

1. They make you want to improve yourself…
They make you feel like you can do anything and improve on yourself as a person by pushing yourself to do things you might have been too scared to do before.

2. You lift each other’s moods…
A horrible day at work or a disagreement with a friend or family member can be made much less worse when you talk it out with them.

3. They tell you when you’re being selfish/unfair and they’re not afraid to…
This is just as important as telling you that you’re great. They let you know when you’re acting a little selfish, and make you a better person.

4. You get on with their family…
You love his mum and dad and sisters and brothers because they make you feel comfortable and welcome. And they love you because they know you love their son/sibling.

5. You make each other laugh…
And no, we don’t just mean a little chuckle. We mean real gut, scrunching your face up in hysterics, think you’ve never heard something funnier in your life, did you just snort laughter. But they also make you laugh out loud when you least expect yourself too, like when you’re feeling low.

6. You can’t imagine not being attracted to them…
You’re still as attracted to them as you were at the start, and even if it mighn’t be as sparky as it was a few years ago, you still eye them up all the time and fancy them loads!

7. They’ve seen you in both good and bad (terrible!) states…
Yep, holding your hair for you while you spend the night with your head down a toilet bowl after one too many glasses of vino and in tears during tough times. They’ve seen it all and it doesn’t change one thing, except make you love them more.

8. They forgive you…
They forgive you when you say things you didn’t mean, because they know you didn’t mean it, and don’t hold things against you for weeks after, they just forgive and forget.

9. You trust each other…
You just know that they will never hurt you and that you can always rely on them.

10. You’re comfortable with them…
Completely yourself. No make-up on, sleep in your eyes, morning breath, sitting in silence with them, and it won’t be awkward at all!

11. It’s not hard for you to show them your emotions…
You can be deliriously, goofily happy in front of them, but also sad, tearful and angry. It doesn’t matter, because they are a rock for you and make you feel like you can freely express yourself completely void of judgement.

12. You can make decisions together…
We’re not saying you’ll agree on everything or won’t have a clash of opinion now and again, but ultimately you can come to the same reasoning or decision in the end after talking to each other.

13. They’ve got your back…
They will stick up for you, are behind you to catch you when you fall and be there for you through thick and thin.

14. You still get excited seeing and spending time with them…
You get that excited butterfly feeling ahead of a date, because as well as being lovers, you’re also best friends.

15. You see a future with them..
And it makes you smile.
