Can you find compromises that work for both of you
The key to any successful relationship is compromise.
Every relationship, some more some less, is a compromise between the individual needs of the people involved. Indeed, it is wrong to expect to always be perfectly aligned or agree on everything.
But the way you are able to compromise and negotiate with your partner is a key indicator of how well suited you are to each other.
If you find it easy to meet in the middle when you disagree about something, then know that yours might be the right partner.
2. Accepts you for who you are
The right person will reassure you, compliment you, and let you know how wonderful you are*. In other words, he or she will accept you for who you are, with all your strengths and faults.
Let go of people who constantly question your thoughts and appearance: it is a clear sign that something is wrong.
A good partner wants you to be happy and never doubt yourself.
3. Argue, but in a healthy way
Arguments are not necessarily a bad thing in a relationship. In fact, depending on how you handle them, they can be an integral part of the longevity of a romance.
With the right person, you should be able to express opposing or different points of view without it causing ruptures or fractures in the relationship.
Healthy arguing then means learning to validate each other’s perspectives, even if they do not necessarily match our own.
**Fighting is good for the couple (science says so)**
You have similar core values
It is not necessary to have exactly the same interests as your partner. In fact, sometimes it helps to have completely different ones: it gives you something to talk about.
But if you want a long-term relationship with someone, you need to make sure you are on the same page in terms of life goals and core values.
Whether it’s your views on having children, where you would like to live or just the lifestyle you would like to have. Whatever it is, if it is important to you, it should also be important to your partner.
5. The perfect partner is a good listener
A good partner will listen carefully to everything you have to say, no matter how boring it may seem to him or her.
The ability to listen to each other and give the other person space to feel heard, even if the content of the discussion is not of interest to us as an individual, shows that person that they are worthy of our time and attention.
6. You are not afraid to say what is on your mind
When you have found the perfect partner, there is no judgment in the relationship. Or at least there shouldn’t be.
You should feel free to be yourself and show all sides of your personality. If you are up to something, talk about it freely. In a healthy relationship your partner will listen to you without judgment or prejudice.
7. The physical chemistry between you two is palpable
So much so that other people comment on how great you are together.
To figure out if he is the right person for you, you must also question the physical chemistry that attracts you to each other.
If, beyond the sparks under the sheets, just holding hands fills your heart with joy, even after so many years together, then hold on to this person.

8. Your family and friends love her*
It might seem obvious, but if your loved ones get along with the person you’re dating, it’s usually a good sign.
Family and friends will probably know you better than you know yourself. Therefore, it is normal for them to be protective and initially suspicious of the people you hang out with.

9. You are at the center of his or her world
There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a conversation with your partner only to notice that he or she is looking at Instagram.
We are so often distracted by technology, screens and notifications. But attention to each other plays an important role in forming meaningful connections.
The perfect partner will be fully present; which shows one’s value to that person.
10. Shows you affection with small attentions
A gesture does not have to be grand to be romantic. In fact, sometimes it is the small gestures that mean more than the others.
Small gestures warm the hearts of those who receive them. And it is the daily attention that makes us realize how much a partner cares about us and our happiness.
