Victor Hugo, the popular French poet once quoted,

“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”

This is so, so true, isn’t it?

Love is a feeling which has a unique definition for each one of us, and yet it is so beautiful and special. No doubt it is said, it is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.

You may have found your ‘one’, but the feeling of losing that person is so scary that it haunts you day and night, doesn’t it?

Once you’re in love, you cannot imagine living without that one special person ever! You become protective about him/her, and sometimes a li’l insecure too.

Is there any way to find out if you’re truly meant to be, and if you’ve found ‘the perfect one‘? We think yes, there are many ways!

Here in this article, we will tell you about a few signs that would prove to you that you two are just meant to be together, and there’s no letting go of him/her!

So, shall we start? Let’s go!

Signs the two of you are meant to be together.

1. When you two don’t have to ‘act’ in front of each other

No doubt initially you two would want to put your best feet forward to try and impress each other and go overboard, but how long would you ‘act’?

You have found the one when it is no longer necessary to try and always be sweet in front of him/her. It is when you two can be your natural self in front of each other and still not be afraid to be ‘judged’!

2. When silence also feels beautiful

You know there always comes a time when you don’t have anything to say to each other, and when the silence around you makes you feel awkward and uncomfortable! Well, if that’s the situation with your partner, then no, he/she’s not the one.

You’ll are meant to be together when you don’t talk at all, and yet that silence keeps you close, and it feels comfortable and beautiful. It is when the other person understands you when you don’t even utter a word.

3. When there’s no insecurity about a third person

We know it’s cute when your girl/boyfriend gets a li’l jealous when you get way more attention from an opposite gender; but hey, nothing in extreme is desirable you know? Not even jealousy, because it often leads to over-possessiveness that can hamper your relationship in future.

You are meant to be when your partner is not insecure about you when it is about a third person. If there’s no trust, why be in a relationship?

4. When you don’t feel the need to change each other

No two persons are the same, and it is only obvious that you two will differ in many respects. In fact, you might just turn out to be the exact opposites of each other.

Observe and understand if your partner is appreciating the difference or is he/she constantly complaining! You two are meant to be together only when you can accept each other the way you two are.

When you two don’t feel the need to change even one thing about the other one, that’s when the love is meant to be, even though those behavioral aspects can drive you crazy at times! You should just accept his/her personality with all your heart.

5. When you are tight-lipped if it comes to secrets

You are meant to be with him/her when you don’t have to think twice before sharing your light, dark or worst secrets with ‘the one’.

You can pour out your heart to your partner because you know they’d be password protected by him/her, and no third person will know about the same. It is when he/she becomes the best friend you can’t do without!

6. When there is healthy space between you two

Your love is bound to grow when your partner and you give each other ample space to let yourselves breathe on your own.

Even if one gets controlling towards the other, it should stop at the earliest. You are meant to be when there’s healthy space between you two and yet you are mad about each other no matter what!

7. When fights can’t keep you apart

Any healthy relationship requires the partners to let their ego go! Because you two are different, fights/disagreements are bound to happen.

However, no matter how big the trouble is, if you can’t stay away from each other and apologize to your partner every time you make a mistake, you two are simply meant to be!

8. When your family gets involved

There are some people who like their relationships to be under wraps. However, if they are serious and really want to be with you, they’d always tell their most trusted sources (read parents) about you sometime or the other!

If your boy/girlfriend has told his/her family about you, remember that’s one important milestone to cross in the field of love! When your families know each other pretty well, that’s when you know you are meant to be!

9. When you can picture your lover in the future

You may be madly in love and yet not see a future with him/her. If that’s the case, run away from that person. You two are meant to be only when you can vision being with him/her much later in life too.

Have you thought whether your partner will be a good father/mother to your kids? If not, he/she’s not the one for you!


Well, these are just a few pointers to help you understand whether you’ve found the perfect one, and if you’ll are meant to be! Observe your partner and give them some time to understand you and your views.

Remember that communication is the only secret for a long-lasting and healthy relationship.

If your partner matches all or most of these, then congratulations, you’ve probably found your one! Keep believing in love…
