How do you know when you’ve met the person you’re going to marry?

Cupid’s Advice:

All relationships require dedication and hard work, but can an individual really tell if the person they’re dating is “The One”? At the end of the day, the only person who knows the answer to that question is you, but there are a few signs that can help you make a decision. Cupid is here to help:

1. You have great communication: It’s natural for a couple to fight from time to time, but it’s how you resolve the conflict that matters. If you and your honey can manage to get through a fight without using any physical or verbal means, then you might be meant for each other. Getting into an argument while maintaining a level of respect for each other’s space and boundaries will only strengthen your bond. The better the communication is between you and your partner, the better chances you have of creating a long-lasting relationship.

2. Your friends and family love your partner: If the people you love and trust the most approve of your special guy/girl, then there’s a good chance that you and that person are in it for the long haul. Of course, sometimes family members tend to push you toward someone you have nothing in common with, so just be sure you’re dating the person you’re interested in spending your time with.

3. Same goals: Sharing the same life goals and interests are key aspects in maintaining a strong relationship. Think about your long-term goals. What type of career do you see yourself having? How many kids does your significant other want? Where would you two live together if things ever got serious? If you can come to an agreement on all of these questions, the life you plan on sharing with your honey will only be filled with happiness.
