The concept of a perfect relationship can seem like a fleeting one. Things can seem like they’re absolutely fine one minute, then the next day everything might collapse around you and the relationship could crawl to an end. However, there are a couple of signs that might make you might realize that you’ve found a partner that is pretty much perfect. In order to help you decide if your perfect match ticks all the right boxes, we’re going to show you some of the big signs to look out for if you think you’ve found the right partner.
They’re actually your best friend too
Contrary to what many people think, your partner can also be your best friend. Think about it–you’re planning to spend the rest of your life with them, so it makes complete sense that you’ll want to hang out with them all the time and you’ll want to do everything together. If you feel absolutely comfortable with them regardless of the situation, then you know you’re made for each other.
You care what your friends and family think
A lot of people tend not to care what their friends and family members think of their partner, but when you actually start getting worried about how others will perceive your relationship, that’s when things start to get serious.
They’re the first person you speak to about good news
Sharing good news feels great because it’s full of positivity. If you feel like you always want to share the news with your partner first, then it’s a good sign that you’re made for each other.
And they’re also the first person you break bad news to
Bad news is usually shared with the person you trust the most because they’re the one that you feel can provide you with support. This is usually your best friend or a close family member, but it can also be your partner.
You don’t take each other too seriously
A sense of humour is an attractive trait to have. When couples have a sense of humour and are able to joke about each other and make little jabs without consequence, it’s a good sign that you’re both on the same wavelength regarding humour and that you don’t take each other too seriously.
But you can be serious when it calls for it
However, it’s still a good idea to have moments where you can be serious with each other. If you immediately notice something is wrong with your partner (and your partner can identify the same situations) then it shows how synchronized and aware you both are with your feelings and emotions.
You don’t mind being seen together
Though a fairly childish thing to consider, a lot of younger couples find it difficult when they’re seen out with each other. If you’re extremely comfortable being in public with your partner and don’t mind showing occasional signs of affection, then it’s a good sign that you’re a perfect match for each other.
You’re not afraid of criticizing each other
It’s also important that you and your partner aren’t afraid to criticize each other. Hiding things that you find annoying or wrong about your partner’s behaviour isn’t doing them a favour and can actually ruin relationships. Make sure you speak up if you see or notice something going wrong and don’t be afraid to confront your partner. If you can achieve this without fearing a breakup, then it’s a good sign you both trust in each other’s opinions.
You see a future together
Whether it’s because of a zodiac sign match ordained by the stars or because the chances of you both meeting were slim, some partnerships just seem to be caused by fate. Because of these coincidences, you might be able to see a complete future with your partner. Perhaps you see each other having children, growing old, getting married and even arguing about silly things down the line.
You’re not afraid of arguing because there’s always a reason
Lastly, arguments are almost guaranteed in a relationship. Even if you think you’ve found the perfect partner, it doesn’t mean that you’re never going to disagree on something. In fact, a healthy relationship with your partner means occasionally criticizing each other (as mentioned above) and this will undoubtedly lead to arguments. Thankfully, arguments don’t have to end in tears and breakups especially if there’s a good reason behind them, such as a misunderstanding that you want to clear up.
