Are you a hopeless romantic to believe in finding your perfect match, or does that make you a hopeful romantic? You have a yearning for finding your perfect match, that one person who will complete you, even if you haven’t yet met them. In some cases, you might have even met them already, but just need some signs you’ve found the one.
We usually think of romantic movies when we think about finding the perfect love. In fact, movies help us define our romantic ideals. In one study, researchers found that watching romantic movies significantly predicted that a person believed in a perfect mate for everyone. People who watched romantic comedies reported stronger beliefs in an ideal romantic partner than those who did not watch romantic movies.
Another study showed that believing that one’s partner was Mr. or Mrs. Right was associated with having a happier relationship. When participants’ beliefs about their relationships were challenged by the researchers, those who believed that their partner was their soulmate were more likely to express relationship protecting thoughts than others.
If you are wondering if your partner and you are a perfect match that was meant to be, here are some signs that you’re right for each other.
