Is he 'the one'? What even is 'the one'? Is the idea of having a perfect match, one 'love of your life', 'Mr Right' a little outdated? Well, yes, the Disney version is. Hate to break it to you but you're unlikey to find your soul mate the first time round. You'll kiss (bang) a few frogs, settle for a couple of safe bets and get your heart broken by a love rat, but there is still hope.
Think of 'the one' as being 'the right one' rather than 'the perfect one'. Because there's no such thing as perfect. You're not a Disney Princess- that sounds harsh, but you ain't. Can you talk to animals, swing down buildings by your hair or heal broken legs with your magic locks? Nah, you can't. And if you could you'd hopefully be a superhero not some princess searching for their prince. So, since you're not a Disney Princess, you're not going to find your Prince Charming.
The one, in reality, is your best friend who you'd happily spend the rest of your life with- there will be fights, tears and heartbreak, but if they're the one you'll both love and support each other through it all.
1. You Make Sacrifices For Each Other
You make sacrifices for one another, and your life together, but never try and change each other.
2. You Feel Comfortable Planning
The thought of planning a holiday with your last fella filled you with dread, but with this one you're happy to make plans months, christ even years, into the future.
3. You Share Similar Values
No, this doesn't mean you have to agree on everything. After all, opposites do attract, but only in regards to personality quirks and passions, not core values. If you don't agree on kids/marriage/politics and other big lifestyle factors, then you won't work out. It's all well and good loving one another, but if one of you sees kids as a deal breaker and the other doesn't then maybe it's time to face the music.
4. Love Is The Easy Party
He's the one when you realise that being in love is the easy part, and the rest of having a relationship is the hard part. It's the daily squabbles about washing up, bills and who last cleaned the bathroom that take work, if he's the one then the loving and supporting one another is the easy part, and life is the hard bit.
5. He's Your Bestie
You tell him everything, you don't keep secrets, you're not embarrassed to express your feelings and he's the first person you want to tell about your day. Grab onto that kind of love, it'll last a lot longer than the dude with really good abs who doesn't care about that amazing sandwich you ate for lunch.
