4 Ways To Tell If He's The One

Is he the one you've been waiting for?


Drew Barrymore recently got married for her third, and hopefully last time. Many women see themselves when they look at Drew, because she's a woman who is so optimistic about finding love, and no matter how many times she stumbled along the way, she never seemed to lose hope that she would indeed one day find the one.

So how can you tell if you've found your Mr. Right?

1. He accepts you for who you are right now, not who you want to be and never tries to change you. Are you able to be your authentic self 24/7 with him? We're talking bad days, good days, and yep, pms days. We all have those sides to ourselves that we might not be too proud of, things we'd rather hide, and a slew of bad habits, but you should never have to fake the funk in a relationship. You'll know he is the One if he not only sticks around through it all, but falls in love with you even more.


2. You trust him. I'm not just talking about commitment, although that is a huge part of the equation as well. Trust goes well beyond cheating. Do you trust him enough to share your life with him and to begin looking at the world as a team? Are you comfortable sharing your goals and dreams with him, no matter how far fetched they may seem, and more importantly, do you trust that he'll support you in any way that he can? Are you open to his views and hopes for the future as well? Think of trust like the foundation of the life you're building together...if it's shaky, everything else will be too .

3. He's your best friend. I hate to sound like a Queen song, and cheesy as it may be, the best relationships are the ones where the couple would count their partner as not only a lover, but their best friend as well. They don't just love each other...they like each other. A lot. This doesn't mean that you ditch your girls and expect him to cancel his weekly basketball game in order to go shopping with you. It simply means that he's the first person you call when you need to talk something out or have big news to share. Additionally, it means that you genuinely enjoy spending time together and experiencing the in between moments of life in each others company.

4.He fits the bill. Many women have a long, detailed list full of the qualities they desire in a man, and this can backfire because there is no such thing as a "perfect" man. There is, however, a man who is perfect for you. When you look at your list of desired qualities, a few should jump out at you as non negotiables. Maybe it's very important to you that the man you're with want children, or maybe you are looking for a guy who is responsible and financially secure. Whatever your must haves are, if he's the One, you won't have to bend or ever feel like you're settling. Sometimes though, it's best to throw the list away and let nature (or Cupid) take it's course!
