5 Signs That You Have Met the “Right One”


By Amy Schoen, March, 2011


1. There is a feeling of  “home”

There is a sense of comfort, and a familiarity.  The word recognition comes up as knowing that this person is the one.  It’s like you have known the person your whole life.  It’s so easy to talk to one another.

2. There is a Flow

The relationship has ease.  The couples finish each other’s sentences.  Time just flies when you are with the right person.  Yes, relationships take work, but this is joyous work.  The concept of flow is true for both in and out of the bedroom!

3. You are able to laugh together and have fun

You enjoy being with each other and get each other’s jokes.  You may not have exactly the same humor, but you at least crack a smile.  My husband and I both blew straw wrappings at each other like kids!  It’s okay to be silly with this person.  The couple has fun doing activities together and has some similar interests.

4. You are each other’s best friend

There is a sense of trust and loyalty.  You know your partner will be there for you through thick and thin and can be counted on.   You want to share everything with this person- the good and the bad stuff. You are always excited to see that person walk in the door.

5. You both act in a “we”  way rather than a “me”  way

The couple makes decisions that the benefit the relationship instead of only the individual.  You share life goals and work together towards them together.  You care about how your actions affect the other.
