Cupid's Pulse Article: Dating Advice: 4 Signs Your Partner Is the Right One for YouCupid's Pulse Article: Dating Advice: 4 Signs Your Partner Is the Right One for You

A lot of us get into a relationship only to eventually breakup. This typically happens because we end up picking the wrong partner simply because we are not aware of what we want from life or we are not able to catch the signs.

To help you make the right decision, our dating advice below includes four signs that indicate your partner is the right one for you:

1. You can talk for hours:

It is important for partners to communicate with each other and talk about everything. If you struggle to come up with a topic to talk about with your significant other, then it is a sign that you are probably not compatible. However, if you can talk at a stretch without struggling to find things to say, then you more than likely have a sustainable connection.

Many couples just sit together, at a restaurant for example, but have nothing to say to each other. Such couples are typically unhappy, and it’s not something you’d want to aspire to in your relationship. If you find it difficult to open up in front of your partner and your conversations are not a two-way street, then it may be time to call it quits.

2. You love doing things together:

If you love your partner’s company and enjoy doing things with them, then they may be the right pick for you.

This could involve everything from dining together to watching movies together to going on trips. Remember that you do not need to share the same tastes to be able to enjoy things together. You might like action movies and your partner might like romantic comedies. There is nothing wrong with that, and sometimes opposites can actually attract one another. But, if these differences begin to cause you to fight, then it’s a sign of concern.

3. He or she makes you happy:

Physical attraction aside, you get into a relationship because it makes you happy, but sadly not every relationship involves two happy people. Some can be toxic.

If your relationship only makes you unhappy, then it is not the right one for you. However, before you make a decision, find out what really causes you to be unhappy. It can be due to several reasons. For example, if you’re married, think about putting together a list entitled “thankful for my husband” and bring to light what qualities your husband has that you are thankful for. You can do the same thing with your partner, and this will help you gauge if the fault is within your partner or because of you.

4. You fight, but then grow closer:

It’s okay and normal for couples to fight. Just because you have arguments, it doesn’t mean you’re wrong for one another. Remember that all couples argue. In fact, many experts believe that fights can help two people come closer, but this only happens when you avoid letting arguments change your relationship.

If you stop talking to each other for days after a fight, then it is a sign that you’re not right for each other. However, if you can get along despite arguments and not carry forward the hatred, then it is a sign that you can work through things together long-term. Couples that forget about the negative things in life and concentrate only on the positives stay together for a long period of time, because they do not let the hardships of life affect who they are.

Consider these four signs when you’re trying to figure out if your partner is “the one”. The key lies in not being overly critical and seeing how things really are. If the partner you’re with makes you happy and you think you can be with them in the long-run, then it’s time to give it a real shot.
