Is he/she “The One”?
Many times we love someone but we aren’t sure if they are the right one for us. Love can be super confusing! If we want to be in a loving relationship, we must start by being loving to ourselves.
Is He/She “The One”? 6 Questions to Ask Yourself
Here are 6 questions to help you figure out whether you are spending time with “The One” – someone who is a future soul mate or not.
1. Is he/she a happy person?
This is the first questions you should ask yourself to find out if they are “the one”.
- Do they love themselves?
- Do they love what they do for a living?
- Are they still in love with an ex?
- Do they love the direction their life is heading?
- Do they drink too much alcohol to escape their feelings?
“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.” ~Anthony Robbins
Know this now: One of the secrets of a happy relationship is to be with someone who is happy. If they’re not happy, then their lens on you will be negative – and/or they will be too codependent on you to create a healthful relationship.
2. Does he/she want the same kind of relationship as you do?
If you both aren’t eager for marriage – then you’re a good match. But if one of you is eager and the other is not – then you’re not a good match – even if you are compatible on a day to day basis. You want to find a partner who shares your same vision of expectations for the relationship.
3. Would you want to hang out with this person?
Good looks fade -but a bad personality is forever. A good relationship needs both a strong mind and strong body connection.
4. Do you like the smell of their skin and feel of their arms around you?
Love making is important to keeping a relationship fueled and moving forward – but another thing to look for is like the smell of their skin – the feel of their arms around you.
I’ve found that a really strong soul connection is deeper than just a physical thing. It’s loving the feeling of being curled up in bed with your partner.
5. Do you have a good laughter life?
A good laughter life is as important as a good intimate life. A good laughter life together will get you through the tough times.
6. Do you share the same character values?
“When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself.” ~Deepak Chopra
A lot of what makes for conflict in a relationship is when people have different core values on key issues like money, fidelity, communication, truth telling, generosity, the roles men and women play, etc…
