We’re all pretty certain when we’ve met someone who isn’t “the one.” But, what if you think that maybe you’ve met the One you’ve been looking for all these years? There’s no way to be 100% certain, but there are several clues you can look for.

We’ve all thought that we’ve met the partner of our dreams only to realize later that we were 100% wrong. This article can help you separate the One from “not the one.”

Keep these great relationship clues in mind:

1. You’re able to settle conflict efficiently and effectively. All relationships have conflict. Many people erroneously believe that good relationships are completely free of conflict, but that simply isn’t true. When you have two or more people together, there will eventually be conflict.

The ability to find an acceptable solution to your conflicts with relative ease and speed is a great sign that you may have met your ideal partner.

2. You feel comfortable being yourself. It’s natural to present your best possible self when you start dating someone. However, the truth always comes out eventually.

Do you feel completely comfortable being yourself with your partner? If you have to keep pretending to be something you’re not, this partner probably isn’t the One.

3. You have the same lifestyle goals as your partner. Your personalities might mesh perfectly, but if you want different things, you’re not with your ideal person.

The big things like having kids, where you want to live and long-term goals need to be very similar. Otherwise, the compromises that need to be made will likely be too significant for both of you to be happy.

4. Your values are similar. People with vastly different values cannot get along over the long haul. People with different values make different decisions, take different actions and want different things.

5. It’s easy for you to make each other happy. Is it easy for you to make your partner happy? Or do you have to jump through a bunch of uncomfortable hoops each day to keep the peace?
