How do you know when you’ve found “the one”?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can take a lot of bad relationships ending in hurt feelings to finally find “the one.” ¬†Cupid has some ways to know it’s true love:

1. Communication is key:¬†You have no trouble talking and there’s never an awkward silence. ¬†If you find that you can talk to your sweetheart about anything without being bored, that is indicative of a lifelong¬†compatibility. ¬†If you find that your love has the qualities you like, and none of the qualities you don’t,¬†it’s a good sign.

2. One in the same: If your life goals are similar, that’s important. ¬†It’s nice to be in love, but if you have no common life goals, trouble can occur quickly.

3. Predict the future: When you think of your future¬†and you can’t imagine your partner not being there, he or she may be “the one”. ¬†If you find yourself thinking about making a family with them, building a home with them or even just find yourself planning the wedding,¬†that may mean that they’re meant to be in your future.
