These Are the Early Signs You've Met the One
Did you know that there is actual research to back the idea of the 'honeymoon phase'? That research tells us that that phase lasts about a year and then the intense romantic feelings begin to fade.
But when you're in it, it's hard to decipher real love from infatuation. The good news is, there are some sure-fire ways to tell that it's the real deal, as well as some ways to tell that it's not.
Do you know what the early signs you've met the one are? We'll tell you 3 of the signs to look for and what to avoid.
Early Signs You’ve Met the One
There's no time limit on how long it takes to fall in love. But how do you know if this is the one? If you see these 3 early signs, you may have met your match.
1. A Feeling of Comfort
If you feel like you're home when you're with your new partner, that says a lot. When you feel an inexplicable comfort with that person, it's a good early sign you've met the one. That comfort comes from a deep connection and your intuition is telling you that you're safe with this person.
2. They Bring Out the Best in You
This person makes you feel like you can accomplish anything. You share all your dreams, hopes, and fears with them because you know they'll support you through it. You're always your authentic self with them because you know they won't judge you.
3. You Argue
This may sound counterintuitive, but arguing is actually healthy. Disagreements are going to happen, but if you handle them properly, you come out on top. Arguments give you a chance to communicate your needs, learn about your partner, and grow in your relationship.
The key is arguing properly. If you can vent your frustrations without being insulting or rude and with honesty, compassion, and love, then you might be a perfect pair.
Some Signs They Aren’t Right for You
When you're under the spell of the honeymoon phase, you might ignore things. Ignoring signs that they may not be right for you will only lead to hurt. Keep an eye out for these warning signs that they might not be the one.
1. Game Playing
If your partner plays games involving ghosting, canceling plans, or going tit-for-tat, that's a bad sign. A healthy relationship is based on mutual respect. If they're playing games to keep you or them interested in the chase, then it's a good sign they're not ready for a commitment.
2. No Trust
You need trust in terms of whether or not you trust this person not to hurt you or cheat on you. But trust also means you can trust them with your feelings, thoughts, ideas, and flaws. If you don't feel comfortable admitting mistakes or being yourself, that's a bad sign.
3. False Twin Flames
A relationship between false twin flames may feel like you've met your soulmate, but they're actually not. Often filled with intense feelings of love and passion, these relationships can be difficult to identify. If you're not feeling spiritually connected, or you're experiencing anxiety and unrest, you may be with your false twin flame and not the one.
