When you are in love with someone and are in a relationship with them, sometimes even intentionally and unintentionally, they will show signs that they deserve to be with you and also to be your partner for life. Whenever you see these signs in your partner, know that the universe’s way of telling you that you have ultimately found your partner for life.
Here are 11 signs he is your partner for life
1. He’s your best friend.
He’s the person you can’t wait to come home to at the end of a long day. He’s the best part of your day. No matter what happens in your life, you know that you can count on him to put a smile on your face. Whether you’re having a great adventure together or having a quiet evening, you’ll always find a way to have fun together.
You love spending time together and it always comes naturally; you can be yourself close to him. You have your own inside jokes and know how to make each other laugh. He’s your biggest fan and your strongest support system. You are confident that together you can get through everything that life throws at your feet.
2. You can tell him anything and everything.
There are no secrets between you two. You tell each other everything. He’s the first person you want to share good news and bad news with. When you both get home from work, you talk about how your day was or what happened in the world. You are able to have intellectual conversations, but you can also talk about the most random things, and you might as well sit comfortably in silence.
There is nothing that you are afraid to share with him. You can talk about anything, including things that may be difficult or uncomfortable to talk about. But he will never judge you. Even if he doesn’t fully understand you, he will always try his best.
3. Arguments are healthy and often end with a solution.
Arguments and fights usually don’t escalate into insane outbursts. It’s the struggles that either need to happen to bring about positive change or to keep your relationship growing. Some can also be the result of stress that has built up in everyday life. Disputes are natural in any partnership. Think about it: if you were to spend every single second of every day with a friend, sibling, or work colleague, they would inevitably annoy you at some point. This happens. Too much of one can be a little daunting.
But arguments with your partner for life are different. You love him even if you want to hate him. And even after some of your biggest arguments, you still kiss and genuinely makeup because you really know that everything will be all right and that this was just a bump in the road. You can often disagree and get on each other’s nerves, but you both know life is too short to waste time-fighting, so after an argument, you try your best to forget it and move on.
Arguing with your lifelong partner almost always ends with a sincere “I’m sorry” from both sides and a conversation about how this could possibly be prevented in the future.
4. Not only does he tell you he cares, but he also shows you and makes an effort.
Many empty promises are made in some relationships, but your life partner does what he says, even if it’s not right away. In other relationships, the effort fades over time, and all the surprises and little things that showed real effort slowly come to an end.
Of course, as a relationship progresses, you can’t always expect surprises and the regal treatment because that would eventually get boring and would be nothing to look forward to if it happened so often. But if the effort stops completely, there is a risk that love will become stale or die out.
Your partner for life goes out of his way to turn birthdays, holidays, and special occasions into moments you will never forget. If you’ve had a rough week, he’ll go out of his way to make you a nice meal or do something that he knows will bring a smile to your face. And no matter if it’s the smallest or the biggest, he’ll keep trying over the years because he always wants to remind you how much you mean to him.
No relationship is perfect, but that’s where the effort arrives. Your partner for life will never stop trying to keep love alive. He will always do his best to make sure the two of you have a happy life together, and that is as close to perfection as you will ever get.
5. It’s comfortable, but not too comfortable.
He’s comfortable enough to be 100 per cent himself around you, but not so comfortable that he stops trying or taking care of himself. You bring out the best in you and motivate each other to stay healthy and on the right path. You and your partner for life find the balance between you, making you feel so comfortable that you are truly best friends, while always remembering to keep trying and not forgetting the little things that matter most.
6. Your happiness means everything to him.
When you are sad, he is also sad, even if he cannot fully understand why or what you are going through. But when life strikes hard, he will do everything in his power to make you happy. He will always support you and cheer you on. When you’re feeling down, he wants you to do whatever you need to do to get your luck back – hang out with the girls, buy yourself a new dress, plan an adventure with him, whatever it is can.
He’s never jealous or controlling, and he always has your best interests in mind. Your happiness is deeply important to him because he is on your team, he has your back and just wants to see you smile.
7. You know in your heart that you can trust him.
Trust can be a very difficult thing. But with him, you know in your heart that he would never risk doing something that could lead to him losing you. Nothing is that important. He will never get lost and he will never risk your love for anything. You can trust him to come back to you at the end of a night or a weekend. You can trust that he will not let you down.
But we are all human – imperfect creatures – and if he ever slips up or makes a silly mistake, you can guarantee that he will find a way to make it all right and make things right.
8. You have no eyes for anyone else.
I have always believed that if a person’s eyes start to wander, or if they are actually considering cheating when the thought occurs to them, then they should walk away or rethink their relationship thoroughly. When you’re ready to take the risk of losing your partner to something insignificant, you should either end the relationship altogether or find out what put you down that path and take the first steps to fix it.
What you have for life with your partner is rare. It would never occur to you to do something stupid that could break it. You are both faithful and loyal to each other because you know that what you have is real and extremely difficult to find, and you never want it to end.
9. You feel complete as if nothing is missing.
You no longer have a burden on your shoulders when it comes to love. You now feel a sense of completeness, as if nothing is missing. Even if you’re having a terrible day, knowing you have it will help you get through anything. He brings brightness into your life. He makes you feel like the whole world could turn away from you, but he would still be there and stand by your side. You and him against the rest of the world.
10. You cannot imagine life without him.
Just the thought that something bad could happen to him makes your heart heavy, your stomach turns. You can’t imagine life without him. He’s your world and you wouldn’t want it any other way.
11. The love you have is simple but strong.
He gets by without ridicule, without bullshit and without games. It’s just that simple. And what you have built together is simply because the love and care you have for one another comes so naturally that it is never a problem.
It is also so strong because it is your everything – through the highs, the lows and everything in between. He’s your best friend, your teammate, your rock. The love you and your partner have for life has given both of you the ability to overcome whatever life throws in your way and get it through together. Side by side.
