You are sexually compatible
It isn’t compulsory that both of you must be on the same level every time. Sometimes you’ll want more, sometimes she will. Sometimes you’ll feel exploratory, sometimes he will. But, generally, being compatible with your sexual interests be it in style, quality or quantity means you are in the right relationship.
You share financial goals
It’s no longer news that even the best relationships can be destroyed as a result of financial discrepancies. It’s a good start to share ideas about financial goals, how much income you require to be happy and not stressed, what you want to do about retirement and savings. Couples even share budgets and create financial challenges for themselves.
You spend time together doing things you both enjoy
It’s good to do what your partner likes, but its even better is to find things you both like, like playing paintball, writing, mountain biking, others, and to do them together.
You fight productively
Don’t expect your relationship to be rosy at all times. There would be quarrels once in a while, but fighting should never be about winning. When you’re in the right relationship, fighting productively is about understanding the other person, finding common ground, compromising, and respecting each other throughout the process. End a fight feeling like you’ve won isn’t right.
Your friends and family like you together
One of the easiest ways to know if you’re in the right relationship is to pay attention to the reaction you get from friends and family. Supposing your friends and family want what is best for you, a lot of negative reaction is a bad sign. This doesn’t mean everyone will be fervent about your relationship.
You’re attracted to your partner, mind, body, and spirit
Attraction is probably the first thing that enthused the pursuit of a relationship in the first place. But are you attracted to his/her mind? Are you attracted to his/her spirit? Is he the kind of person you could have conversations with years from now when you’re both old? You’re in the right relationship when you’re just generally excited about your partner.
You keep each other’s secrets
You are in the right relationship if both of you are you conscientious about protecting each other’s privacy. This signifies the level of respect and value you have for your partner.
You make a good team
If you and your partner agree on working together and sharing your goals, then you are already making a good team, you’re in the right relationship.
These signs may not be general, but they are revealing signs to tell if your relationship is even grounded. Observe your relationship with an ardent eye. You may find he or she really is the one or you may save yourself a lot of wasted years and heartbreak.
