Here are 7 signs you’ve (probably!) found the right woman:
1. THERE IS AN “INSTANT CONNECTION”
While there are exceptions to this rule, most happy couples will say there was a connection of some type; and that they felt it quickly.
The simple fact is that you can’t love someone you’re not attracted to. This not only applies to physical appearance, but emotional and intellectual as well.
Since this article is about finding the right woman, here’s a useful tip for my fellow male compadres: looks are not nearly as important to her as they are to you. Humor, confidence, charm, charisma, and strength will trump looks every single time.
2. YOUR THOUGHT PATTERNS ARE SIMILAR (IN MOST WAYS)
Men in a committed, happy relationship (including this writer) are still taken aback by how frequently our thoughts seem to align with our partner’s. Two people meant for each other will often complete each other’s sentences. One will bring up a topic that the other was just about to.
You won’t always agree with each other (a good sign), but that’s also part of the fun.
3. AFFECTION AND LOVE GROWS IN TIME
Following the first couple of dates, one should know whether or not there’s “something there.” In the later stages, truly happy couples will reminisce about how their love and affection for one another grew over time.
Imperfections are accepted, even embraced. The love and affection you feel for the right woman overcomes everything else.
4. YOU LAUGH TOGETHER, A LOT
If your relationship lacks humor and laughter that’s usually not a good sign. A mutual sense of humor is among the most important indications of chemistry.
You, like I, have probably known a couple whose laughter and sense of humor is on the level of Eeyore’s from Winnie the Pooh. If they love each other that’s wonderful – and really the only thing that matters.
For those with an astute sense of humor, the “right” woman will probably make you laugh quite often – and vice versa. If not, she’s probably not the right person.
5. THERE’S A MUTUAL, UNSHAKABLE SENSE OF RESPECT
We’re not talking about the type of respect shown to one’s boss; nor are we talking about “morality-based” respect. When you’ve found the right one, and the relationship develops, the love and adoration you have for her will be so entrenched that the last thing you’ll ever want to do is hurt her.
She highly respects you as a man. You highly respect her as a woman. Both people do so out of love, nothing else.
6. YOUR PRIORITIES WILL CHANGE
Does anyone else know of the playboy who settled down, got married and had kids? (For this writer, it’s his brother).
It’s quite something to behold.
That’s what the right woman does. She grabs your heart, you grab hers, you both fall in deep love. For men who at one time loved the single life that period of time quickly fades from memory. Not only does it fade, but you’re so thankful that it has.
7. YOU WANT THE SAME THINGS IN LIFE
This last one is so very important. Many relationships that end do so because one wants something the other doesn’t. Examples: kids (obviously), a house, living in a different state/country, working full-time or staying home, etc.
While you won’t necessarily want everything the other does, life-changing wants and needs should be mutually agreed upon.
