For a lot of us who are romantically inclined, we make it our life’s mission to find that one person who is able to make our lives whole. We look for the kind of love that we think will give us the happiness that we’ve been craving for the longest time. We are on the constant lookout for that one person who has the ability to right all of the wrongs in our lives; to turn the darkest of days into pure joy and happiness; to bring smiles to a face accustomed to frowns.
Once we do manage to find that one person, we have to make sure to never take it for granted. We must always appreciate love in its fullest capacity because we never know when it might choose to just leave our lives. We must always make the effort to work for the love that we deserve.
So how do we know when we’ve found that love we’ve all been looking for? Here are a few signs.
1. Always respect each other’s opinions even when you argue.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re arguing over the simplest disputes or the most pressing issues concerning your relationship, you still always maintain tact and respect when you are speaking to each other.

2. You have practically mastered non-verbal communication.
You know each other so well that you are able to communicate with each other without even uttering a single word.

You share your plans, dreams, hopes, and aspirations with each other because you always want to be building around your relationship.
5. You always find yourselves wanting to be together.
Yes, we all value our occasional alone time. We all need our solitude every once in a while, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss other people when we’re alone; particularly the people who mean the most to us. If you are like that with your partner, then you’ve got a good union going. You are both very comfortable with being alone and living your individual lives, but you would always still much rather be together.
6. You are both perfectly comfortable with being yourselves.
You don’t judge each other. You don’t pressure each other to live or act a certain way. You don’t try to force each other to become very different kinds of people.

You both know each other so well that you’re willing to just let your innermost character come out into the open whenever you’re together.

9. You love each other despite the flaws and imperfections.
You are imperfect human beings and so that is why you have an imperfect relationship. However, that doesn’t have to mean that the love you share for each other is also imperfect. You love and value each other so much that the flaws and imperfections don’t really matter much to you.
10. You brighten up each other’s day.
