These days, it can be hard to trust anyone. Once you’ve been burned in a relationship, it can be hard to extend yourself and take a chance again. However, it’s important to leave the door open wide enough to let true love from your hot companions in. Read on to find some signs that your relationship is the real thing.
Someone who really loves you will show it in little ways. By helping you when you need it, picking up your prescriptions when you’re sick, holding the door when you’re walking behind them. Look for these signs and signals. They show that your significant other is not selfish and often thinks of others, including you.
A partner who truly loves you will be grateful for your attention. They’ll thank you for attending events like work-related Christmas parties with them. They’ll make it a point to show you how much it means when you help them or their family members.
If your significant other shows pride in your achievements and supports you, you’ll know they’re a keeper. A key here is enthusiasm. If you always feel like you have to drag your partner to attend events with you or support your endeavors, it may not be a good match. A true love match will understand what’s important to you, help you develop your skills and projects, and take pride in the progress you make. This should be true whether it’s a hobby you’re pursuing, like improv comedy, or a career-related goal, like law school.
There’s no easy way to say this, but sometimes people think they’re in a serious relationship when there’s really nothing there. If your partner wants to hide you, chances are there’s someone else they’re seeing, or they think you’re not good enough to introduce to their family and friends, or both. Look for a partner who wants people to know you’re together. When you first meet your true love’s friends, chances are they’ll let you know how much they’ve already heard about you.
5. Making Space
Your true love will make it a point to make space for you. You won’t have to fight to keep a toothbrush and some clothes at their place. They’ll let you know they’ve set something aside. They’ll be willing to compromise on the way they do some things, because they’ll want to incorporate your ideas into their life. Making space for you in other ways is also something you should look for. Your true love will be willing to let you speak, instead of just talking over you.
Most importantly, your true love will listen to you with respect. Even if you’re having trouble finding the right words to say what you mean, they’ll patiently wait for you to complete your thoughts. Never stay with anyone who badgers you or works to make you feel stupid. Your true love will respect your self-expression.
