How To Know If He’s ‘The One’


We’ve all heard the saying, ‘when you know, you just know,’ but when it comes to saying ‘I Do’, you want to be sure you’ve found the right partner for life. Here are some subtle signs he may be ‘The One’.

Whenever we talk to couples with a happy and healthy marriage, they can always tell us the story of when they knew they found ‘The One.’

Although it’s great to have that moment of clarity when everything just clicks, sometimes it’s harder to determine if it’s true love even when it’s right in front of you!

Luckily for you, we’re here to help! If the following signs apply to your current relationship, then you may just have found your soulmate…

1. They Feel Like Home

Knowing whether you’ve found ‘The One’ will feel different from person to person, but an inner sense of calm and feeling of being ‘home’ is a great sign that you’re on the right track! Ever heard the saying, ‘home is not a place, it’s a feeling?’, Well, that goes for finding your life partner too.

2. They Fight For You

Relationships can be tough – we’ve all been there. It takes two to tango, so if one person stops putting the effort in, it won’t be long before things start fall apart. Pay attention to how he handles an argument – does he walk away or does he fight to keep you? Even the happiest relationships take work, so make sure you’re with someone who doesn’t give up easily.

3. You Argue (sometimes!)

Yes, you read that right! While we’re on the topic of fighting, let’s normalise arguing in a relationship – we’re not talking about every day (as this could definitely be a red flag), but having trivial arguments here and there is actually a healthy sign that you care about each other!

4. You Can Be Your FULL Self

This one sounds like a given, we know! But, before you say ‘I do’, you need to make sure they know every part of you – that means the good, the bad and the ugly! It’s all going to come out in married life at some point anyway, so don’t be afraid to bare it all. The right one will accept you for who you truly are, and you should feel like you can express yourself freely and safely in their presence.


5. You Motive Each other

Even before you meet the one, you both have different goals and dreams you want to achieve in life – and the right person should root for you always! There might be times when you’re working a little overtime or traveling somewhere solo, which may result in not having as much downtime with your beau. If he truly loves you, he’ll be understanding and motivate you to reach your goals, even if it means spending a little less time with him.

6. You Both Have Separate Lives

Just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean you should lose your sense of self! We know how exciting true love can be and sometimes it’s easy to want to be around them 24/7, but when you can both still enjoy your different goals and hobbies outside of each other, this is a great sign of a healthy relationship that may last a lifetime.

7. You Talk in Cute Voices

If you ever find yourself doing baby talk with your beau, don’t cringe! This is actually a sign that you’re both really in love and is said to relate back to the love we learned as a child growing up (hence, the term ‘baby talk’). It may sound insignificant, but if you both find yourselves talking in cute voices together, or even have your own language that no one else would understand, this is special and he could be the one for you!

8. You Can Do Nothing Together (and it’s still fun!)

Have you ever had those friends you always feel you have to do something with when you hang out? Well, when it comes to your significant other, a great way to know you’ve found the one is if you can actually have fun being bored together! Hear us out – sometimes we don’t always have the energy for an exciting activity, so if you can both chill together doing your own thing and the silence doesn’t feel awkward, this is very telling and a subtle sign of true love.

9. They Talk About Your Future

When your significant other talks about their future plans, pay close attention – if they mention your name in these hopes and dreams, this is a great sign that they’re serious about you! They’re already starting to picture their life with you later down the line, and this is a great sign that you’re both on the same page and you’ve found your perfect person.
