Finding a partner that will love you for who you are is hard. We live in a world where we are our worst critics and most of us are still learning self-love. We give too much importance to appearances rather than what’s in a person and that’s why we become very much aware of our flaws and imperfections.
This self-doubt and lack of self-love can be detrimental for our relationships. However, it goes without saying that when you meet the right person everything will fall into place. They will inspire you to become the best version of yourself and they will love you despite anything.
Here are 11 signs that show your partner will love you no matter what.
1. They Help You Deal With Your Past Wounds
We all carry some type of baggage from our previous relationships. The difference is that everyone deals with it in their own way. Everyone heals at its own unique pace and we should understand this. Your partner definitely understands it and they are willing to help you through the process. It’s extremely hard to recover from the pain of the past, but your partner is there for you.
2. They Give You A Second Chance
No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. However cliché it sounds, it’s true. A partner that truly loves you will give you another opportunity if you mess up things. And them giving you a second chance doesn’t mean that they are weak. It is a sign of incredible strength and healthy personality to be able to allow someone back in one’s life, and it should never be taken for granted.
3. They Don’t Hold Grudges
I truly believe that a person who holds grudges is not a good person. Being resentful takes a lot of energy and it turns you into a bitter person. And a bitter person can’t love you like you deserve to be loved. That’s why a partner who is really in love with you is quick to forgive and forget.
4. They Are Understanding Of Your Mood Swings
Regardless of how much you love a person, sometimes they’ll get on your nerves. You could get irritated by some of your partner’s habits or you’ll just have a bad day and you’ll snap at them. Well, if your partner loves you and is serious about your relationship, they will understand your occasional mood swings because they know you are only human after all and everyone is allowed to have a bad day and lose it sometimes.
5. They Don’t Try To Change You
If your partner really is in love with you, they are in love with everything that you are, and they won’t try to change you. A partner who has fallen in love with the real you, loves your flaws as well and they won’t give you a hard time about them. Sure, they will support you if you want to change something about you, but they won’t force you to anything.
6. They Give You Space
Yes, it feels good when your partner is by your side. However, a good partner knows that having space for yourself is essential for a healthy relationship. So, they’ll back up and give you alone time to relax, work on yourself and do the things you love.
7. They Don’t Try To Control You
When we are deeply in love with someone, we can easily fall into the trap of trying to control them out of fear of losing them. That’s unhealthy behavior. However, when your partner is aware of this and they don’t try to control you, it means that you are in a relationship that’s based on mutual trust and love.
8. They Don’t Expect You To Always Be Your Best Self
No one can be happy, positive, and confident all the time. Everyone can have a bad day and be a bad person for a day. But that doesn’t change who they are. What matters is what type of a person are they in general, not judge them based on their behavior of one day.
9. They Support You
When you love someone, you support them and their goals. You inspire them to be the best they can be. A partner who loves you for you will appreciate your opinion and they’ll be more than willing to build a life with you.
10. Age Is Just A Number
When you truly, deeply love someone, it doesn’t matter how old are they. All that matters is that you make each other happy.
11. Physical Appearance Isn’t As Important To Them As Your Inner Beauty
Wrinkles, lines, and physical imperfections won’t matter to someone who sees you as the love of their life. What matters to them is what kind of a person are you inside. And that’s what we should all look for in a partner.
