How to Know if Your Significant Other is the One

Have you ever wondered if the significant other in your life is “the one?” What does it mean to be “the one”? That’s a tough question. There are so many factors that go into relationships, so there is no definite answer. But here are some things you can do when wondering whether or not your significant other might be the one for you!

Ask Them How They See The Future 

You need to be sure if there’s a place for you in your partner’s future. There are certain questions for your boyfriend you can ask to find out if they see you in the future. For example, ask them what they would like to do when they retire. This will give you an idea of where their life is heading and if there’s room for both of you in it. Additionally, asking your significant other about their aspirations can also tell you how much space there’ll be for a relationship at that point in time.

If these questions seem intrusive then try suggesting activities instead: If your significant other has mentioned something along the lines of visiting Paris once before or taking up ballroom dancing classes with friends one day then take note. These are significant enough to figure out whether or not they see you in their future.

Make Sure They Support Your Dreams 

Your significant other should always support your dreams, even if it means letting them go. Keeping the significant other happy is important, but don’t let that overshadow what you really want to do with your life. 


If they are constantly down or try to sabotage your success then maybe they aren’t right for you. They should be someone who wants nothing more than for you to succeed and have a better future because of their support! Just remember never stop chasing those dreams no matter how scary or hard things might get along the way. You can always come back together once this dream has been achieved!

Are You On Good Terms With Their Family?

You should be on good terms with their family to know that your significant other is the one for you. If they can’t get along with your loved ones, then there’s a good chance it won’t work out in the long run. It shows whether or not they’re able to communicate and resolve differences between themselves as well as be respectful of others’ feelings.


You need to be on good terms with them, too! You’ll definitely see many ups and downs throughout life together but if you click off all those boxes above, chances are great things will happen for both of you. 

Figure Out What You Expect From Your Partner 

Once you know what you expect from your partner, it’s going to be easier to determine if they are the one. Everyone has different expectations and if something makes someone happy, it does not mean it will work the same for you. However, there are some universal things everyone should expect from their significant other. Here they are:

  • Honesty
  • Respect for your significant other
  • Trustworthiness 
  • Love
  • Support 
  • Patience

Is It Possible To Solve Issues Together?

If you are able to solve issues together, then you know that the significant other is the one. When people talk about solving issues they usually think of talking things through and being able to compromise on a topic. This however does not always solve problems since oftentimes it just creates more conflict between partners who are trying to find a solution for the issue at hand.


Compromising can be very difficult especially when significant others have different ways of thinking or doing certain tasks. However, if your partner respects your opinion as much as you respect theirs, then this should never become an issue in which neither person feels like giving up their own beliefs for another person’s sake. In order to determine whether or not someone is right for them; individuals should attempt to work out disagreements with each other instead of giving up because it is easier than trying to solve the issue together.

Can You See Yourself Spending The Rest Of Your Life Together?

Once you look at your partner and realize you can spend the rest of your life with them, you know they are the one. There is no other explanation. It’s just a feeling that takes over when someone significant enters your world.


If you can picture yourself spending forever with this person and still want to be beside them day after day, then there’s nothing stopping you from walking down the aisle together. This may sound like something that only happens in movies or books but believe that it does happen! And it could even happen for you too if you take certain steps towards seeing if he/she is ‘the one.

Finding the person you’ll grow old is not an easy path for many people. However, if you first ask the right question and see how you fit into their future it’s much easier. You should make sure they support you and that you’re on good terms with their family. Also, figure out what you personally expect from them and if you’re able to solve problems together. Once you get all this down figure out if you can spend the rest of your life with this person and you’re on your way towards happiness!
