We all want to find that one person who will show us what true love feels like. The person who will show us that the pure, raw, deep, and once-in-a-lifetime kind of love poets write poems about does exist.
But, you know how they say: “You will have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.” Before you find the person you’re meant to be with and have the best relationship of your life, you will have to have a couple of poor, one-sided, or toxic relationships, and maybe even have your heart broken once or twice.
And while it’s true that everyone expresses their love in a different way, the person you’re meant to be with will do these 7 things for you:
1. They’ll devote their attention to you.
They’ll look into your eyes and listen carefully to every word you say when you talk to them. They’ll want to know everything about you. They’ll care about your feelings, opinions, and problems, and they’ll help you overcome your deepest fears and insecurities. They’ll remember the little things about you that other people don’t even notice. They’ll try to put a smile on your face every single day, because your sweet, disarming smile fills their heart with happiness.
No matter how busy they are or how bad their day is, this person will never make you feel neglected or ignored. They’ll always make time for you and show you how much you mean to them.
2. They’ll accept and love you for who you really are.
They’ll accept and cherish every single thing about you. They’ll know your virtues and strengths, and your faults, quirks, insecurities, and weaknesses as well. Yet, they’ll never mention how better you’d look if you changed the way you dress or lost a couple of pounds.
They’ll never try to change you because they know that these imperfections actually make the person you are. Moreover, they’ll encourage you to accept and cherish yourself as you are. To this person, you’ll be perfect with all your imperfections.
3. They’ll take care of you.
They’ll be there to hold your hand when you feel sad and when your heart gets broken. They’ll be there to protect you from everyone and everything. They’ll never leave you to deal with your problems alone. They’ll be your biggest fan and greatest help.
This person will call to make sure you got home safe and sound and they’ll never forget to ask how your day went. They’ll do their best to make you feel loved, safe, and protected because you’re the most important thing in their life.
4. They’ll resolve arguments with maturity.
When you start to face challenges and obstacles in the relationship, this person will never sweep your problems under the carpet or start an angry fight with you. Instead, they’ll handle every difficulty with maturity and understanding of your feelings.
They’ll make you feel free and comfortable to express your opinions no matter how different they are from their own. They’ll never judge and criticize you or make you feel stupid and unworthy. Instead, they’ll always discuss problems with you in a polite, civilized manner and try to reach a reasonable solution.
5. They won’t be ashamed to show their vulnerability.
This person won’t feel afraid or ashamed to show how they really feel. If they’re sad, they’ll cry. If they’re afraid, they’ll share their fear with you.
This person will undress their soul in front of you and let you get to the very core of their soul. They’ll show their vulnerable sides because they know this is how the emotional and spiritual connection between you will get deeper.
6. They’ll be proud of you.
This person will be proud of you as a person and of all your successes and achievements. Moreover, they’ll encourage you to continue pursuing your goals and passions. They’ll proudly keep a picture of you on their phone screen, and they’ll make sure all their friends and family know about you.
