Your partner feels so right to you, and you are definitely getting soul mate vibes from them, but how can you be sure that this is your perfect match? Whether or not you believe in the idea of a one and only love in the world who is just right for you, knowing the signs will help you pin down your perfect match before he or she gets away.
Nobody’s perfect, but can you be perfect in a relationship with a partner who is your perfect compliment? Maybe you aren’t a patient person, but your partner is willing to wait in line for you when you can’t handle it. Or maybe you hate to clean but your partner enjoys it. An odd couple can be a perfect match when they help support each other’s weaknesses and they also bring plenty of strengths to the relationship.
In this article, we will look at some of the signs an ideal partnership so you will recognize it when you see it, and make a move before they have a chance to get away.
4 Signs Your Partner Is A Perfect Match
1. Your partner (and hopefully you) have a positive outlook
A positive, rather than a negative attitude would certainly make your future together with your partner a brighter one. When you see yourself in your golden years, you don’t want to be surrounded by negativity, at least not alone. Ideally, your perfect match would bring a positive mood to your life anytime you are around them.
Researchers in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology conducted a study to ‘understand how dating couples can maintain feelings of relationship satisfaction in their daily lives and over the course of time.’ Researchers found that couples were most likely to be happier when both of them had a life-seeking attitude that embraced every challenge with positive energy.
Ideally, both partners would share this attitude, but happiness is still achievable if at least one of you is cheerful enough to pull the other one along. In contrast, if your partner looks at life as a series of events that are focused on avoiding bad things rather than seeking the good, your chances of a perfect match for happiness are decreased.
2. You know what it means to be a good friend to your partner
In another research study, feelings of emotional security and companionship predicted happiness for couples over long-term relationships. The study found that happiness was ever more likely when the participants knew themselves well and had a firm sense of identity.
Companionship is particularly important later in life, when sexual activity decreases as we age. You and your partner need to be able to support, entertain, and bring joy to each other’s lives so that you can enjoy your relationship many years from now.
Think about your best friend who is not your partner. Think about the specific qualities that you love about your friend’s personality and the ways in which they show their trust and friendship. If your partner does these same things for you now, it’s a good sign that your partner is a perfect match.
3. You are truly your best self when you are with your partner
An ideal match for you would be someone who helps you to be your best self by encouraging your growth and development within the framework of a committed relationship. In this way, you feel securely emotionally protected and you can spread your wings and be amazing.
Think about when you feel truly your best self and think about how you can feel that way more often. Are you with your partner when you feel this way or are you with other people or alone?
4. You feel comfortable and happy just doing nothing together
A comfortably matched couple is a couple who are happy just to be together with nothing to do. They can have a great conversation with no music, TV, or WiFi to disturb the wonderful feeling that they get by being in each other’s presence.
Relaxing in a park or going for a walk are fun activities when your partner is a perfect match. They know how to stimulate your mind, your emotions, and they connect to you spiritually as well as physically. These moments together build a lifetime of intimacy for a perfectly matched couple.
The foundation of your relationship will be built on trust and communication, so being able to bond by sharing the intimate details of your lives in conversation is both a way to build trust and also your joint communication skills. Your partner is a perfect match when you feel comfortable that they do not hide important things from you and they are able to communicate love in whatever way you need it.
