Finding the one isn’t easy, and no manner of relationship therapy will net you an automatic solution to love woes. But it’s always helpful to be aware of signs that your search is over. As long as you listen to your instincts, you won’t need relationship advice.

1. Listen
Your partner should be genuinely interested in what you have to say. We all taper off occasionally, but if your beau is listening most of the time, he may be a keeper.

2. Interesting
She should catch your interest beyond casual conversation and social platitudes. She should have an aspect that truly grips you from within and keeps you waiting, eager to learn more.

3. Respect
Your significant other should always respect you. In regard to space, time, and what’s important to you, someone who’s genuinely considerate is always a gem.

4. Similar
Dating someone who’s too similar to yourself could be sowing the seeds for disaster, but having a core set of beliefs that are alike can make for a lasting relationship.

5. Different
A difference from others and a difference from yourself is important. Varying interests and strengths also present a way for you to fill each other out and grow together.

6. Sanctuary
If your date feels like a sanctuary away from the darkness that plagues your mind, you know you’ve found someone worth holding on to.

7. Challenge
Someone who’s too stubborn can be endlessly frustrating, but having a partner who’s eager to engage you is important, a pushover results in emptiness.

8. Security
Lying in someone’s arms with no worries is comforting, but it’s also important that your dream lover has their feet cemented on solid ground. Someone whom is too flighty and distant will not offer the security you need.

9. Trust
Any professional will admonish the importance of trust when dishing out relationship counseling. Having the stability of trust shows that your union is strong and resistant to the turbulence and drama that wreaks havoc on less secure relationships.

10. Butterflies
It may seem cliche, but when you feel the euphoric flutter within, the burn of your cheeks and the rapid pace of your heart, you know the person you’re with is important.

11. Dreams
Sharing a kindred hope for the future signifies that you are both ready to dedicate your lives to what you’re passionate about, and it just may be one-another.

12. Beauty
It goes without saying that being attracted to your date is important, but it’s even more vital that this attraction delve beyond the surface level. You want to look at him or her with an intensity born from the pursuit of beautiful things, the immaculate and the flawed in homeostasis.

13. Committed
Your dream lover should certainly be open to the idea of future commitment, if she seems uneasy at the prospect of a long-term relationship, something’s off.

14. Special
Above all, you’ll know you’ve found the one when they capture that special something that seems so elusive. It’s a quality that’s unique and fleeting, but when you meet it you’ll know. And you’ll feel the flush of magic, the burning embers of love.
