2. You’re a better person: When the person you are with makes you a better person, that’s when you know that they are right for you. When you strive to be kinder, more generous, etc. you know that you are in the right relationship.

3. There’s no sacrifice: Every relationship has a little give and take. However, if you are constantly making sacrifices then you are not with the right person.
