You know you love them, but what is it about the person you’re with that makes them the one you want to spend the rest of your life with?

You miss them when they’re gone

Even if you have to go your separate ways for just a couple of hours or to go to work, you’ll miss them. Before they’ve gone, you’re begging them to stay and wondering why you both can’t just stay in bed forever; when you realise they (and you) actually need to go, an unnecessary number of goodbyes are said; as soon as they are gone, you’re not shy to send an ‘I miss you’ text the moment they’ve walked out the door, and several more times throughout the day.


You’re always excited to see them

Whether you’ve got fun plans to go away for the weekend, or just planning a cosy night in after work, you’re excited to see them. Number one: because you miss them, and number two: because you have fun together, even if you’re doing absolutely nothing at all.

You can’t imagine yourself with anyone else

Thinking of your past dates, you wonder how you did it. You just cannot picture yourself sitting across a candlelit table to anyone else but him or her. The fact you ever went on blind dates absolutely baffles you – you don’t even remember how to flirt anymore.

It’s the littler things

When two people know each other when, they know exactly how to tick each others’ boxes and make each other smile. It’s the littler things like bringing your favourite chocolate home when he knows you’ve had a bad day, or you making sure you’ve got his favourite series on record (because you know that he’ll forget), that make a relationship that extra bit special.

You love waking up to them in the morning

Despite spending the entire night nudging him to make him stop snoring, you still love to wake up to their face in the morning. And that’s a good thing. If you can both look past the bed hair and the morning breath, you’re bossing those #relationshipgoals.  Danielle & Jordan Colour-365

You’re always on the same page

Spending the rest of your life with someone is a big commitment and it means you’ve got to be on the same page as each other. You talk about everything and know exactly what each others’ life plans are – so much so that you’ve either got the same life plans or that you’ve had to make compromises so they fit with each other. That’s love.

You’re each others’ best friends

You treat each other like you treat each of your best friends. They’re the first person you ring when something interesting happens or you’ve got some gossip to tell, and you can rely on them to respond in exactly the way you want (“oooh, no WAY did she do that!”). Want to know some other signs that you’re marrying your best friend? Well, you’re in luck!  Wedding Photographs-759

You can be weird together

You’ve both seen the good, the bad, and the ugly – and neither of you care. Whereas you used to care about him seeing you without make-up on and wouldn’t even dare sending him a picture where you’re pulling a double chin, you now feel happy doing both. In fact, you enjoy the idea that you don’t have to run to the bathroom to slap on some foundation before he wakes up.

You love them no matter what

Even when the Snapchat of him or her pulling that double chin face, you can’t help but love them even more. You can’t even help but love them when you’re angry at them – you don’t necessarily like them when you’re in an argument, but you still love them. And that’s exactly why your silly couple tiffs barely last five minutes!
