When it comes to the things that we chase after in life, the unimportant ones like money, power, and wealth eventually fade away.
However, there’s one thing that we chase after that we never stop desiring, and that’s love.
Love is the thing that binds us all together. It’s the thing that gets us up in the morning, the thing that we look for all our lives, and the thing that we can’t live without. But how do you know your partner loves you and you are both made for each other.
#1 Dreamy, steamy eyes. You have been hearing it in movies, especially in romantic comedies, and you have heard friends tell you this, “The way you look at each other…” There is something about made for each other couples and the way they stare into their lover’s eyes.
You will never see them replicate the same look toward anyone else. It’s as if they have that dreamy, but not empty, stare. Like they cannot get enough. Like there is no tomorrow. That’s one sign that you cannot deny your feelings toward your significant other.
#2 The story of us. Do you notice how you and your partner react whenever friends or random people ask how you have met or how your love story goes? There is nothing sweeter than retelling how the two of you fell in love, and the way you deliver this story says a lot about you, your partner, and your relationship with them.
#3 The photographic tendency. Not all of us possess a photographic memory, and yet, when we are irrevocably in love with someone, we tend to remember every single detail. You will notice if they said an expression that they have never used before, or when they start to change the way they say and react to things. It might be corny, but you remember what they wore on a particular event that you guys went to or what you did that one Saturday night, even if it happened years ago.
#4 Arguments are normal, and so are disagreements. There is a certain kind of relationship wherein you can say that you hate your partner so much and yet you still love them without the feeling of resentment or wanting to break up. It is in knowing that disagreements are nothing out of the ordinary and in believing that these are challenges that will nurture the relationship, and not drive you away.
#5 Butterfies in the stomach, stay in the stomach. They say that when you have been in a relationship for a long time, the excitement and the sparks die down. If your significant other still gives you butterflies in the stomach whenever you see them or do special things with them, then you must just have found someone that is really meant for you.
#6 Safe and sound. Feeling safe at all times should not be taken for granted. Being with your lover should never make you feel any doubt, not about the relationship or if there will be a shooter with a gun in front of you, you must be certain that they will take the bullet for you instead. If that does not spell out made for each other, what else will?
#7 Five years from now… The coveted future. The infamous question of where you both see yourselves in five years or ten years or even fifty years. If your partner has already laid down the road map for you and definitely sees a future with you in it, then there is no doubt that this truly corny sign says that you guys are made for each other, totally!
