You really don’t know what a real relationship should look like until you find the one you are going to spend your forever with.
All that you were getting up to that point were crumbs of love and effort. All you’ve known is something mediocre, and now you have it all.
A real man won’t hold back on his emotions. He won’t get scared of commitment, and he will be more than you ever dreamed of.
Sadly, sometimes fate procrastinates in matching you with your one and only. But that’s not without a reason. You need to know what love should never look like in order to recognize the real thing when it comes your way.
These are the 5 things you realize when you finally find ‘the one’:
1. You put up with a lot of shit that you really shouldn’t have had to
You know how they say you will know why it didn’t work out with anyone else once you find your forever person? Well, that’s true.
Once you are treated well, once you are in a normal and healthy relationship, you are finally able to see how you should have never been treated.
All that pain and suffering were just a waste of your time, not to mention emotionally exhausting. You finally know what real love should look like.
2. Nobody ever came close to what you have now
When your life begins to look more like a dream and less like real life, you are with your one and only.
You are with someone you can be yourself with. You feel accepted and comfortable, not to mention that you will be over the moon with happiness just upon seeing them.
They are there through thick and thin. They match your efforts. For the first time in a long time, you will feel like you can trust someone, and it will fill you with safety and make you even more connected.
3. He is both your best friend and your lover
Whatever happens, they are the first ones you want to tell. What’s different now is that they are eager to listen to you and share their stories with you.
You have the best time when you are together, no matter what you do. You have enough passion to last you a lifetime, but it’s not all about sex.
A simple movie night cuddled up on the couch equals somebody’s trip around the world. You have found your whole universe in one person.
4. There are no more emotional roller coasters
You won’t get scared when he doesn’t text right back because he’s probably asleep or something. You trust him, and you know he wouldn’t deliberately hurt you.
He is a man of his word. He never lies to you or says one thing and then does the opposite. He never cancels plans unless he has a good reason. He checks in regularly. He showers you with his time, affection and attention.
Sure, you’ll get mad at each other from time to time. But you will know deep down that there is no problem that’s bigger than you and your love.
5. You can be weird together
When you meet the one, you will realize that being normal is overrated. You are finally free to be yourself around them like they are around you.
Let’s face it; life is weird. We are all weird in our own way. Nobody’s perfect, and nobody should be.
At the end of the day, we need someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours. That’s where true happiness lies.
