10 Signs You Found Your Person

10 Signs You Found Your Person

These are just some of the signs you might see if you've truly found "the one".

I have been lucky enough to spend the last year and few months dating my best friend. He makes me smile on my hardest days and he cheers me on in whatever I do. I have found my person and I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 signs I saw when I realized he was the one.

1. You can be completely yourself around them.

The type of relationship that you want to be in has a judgment-free zone. The person that is made for you will not pick apart your flaws, but they’ll embrace all of your quirks. After all, that’s what makes you YOU! And they love the real you.

2. They make you happy.

This probably seems like a “duh” thing, but let’s be real. All of us have dated someone that kinda made us happy, kinda made us not so happy. I’m not saying there won’t be issues in your relationship, but when you can have a disagreement and then be laughing together an hour later - that’s when you’ve found them.

3. They treat you with respect.

This is probably another “duh” moment, but when you have that respect, you’ll get what I mean. This person respects you enough to communicate honestly and openly. They respect you enough to build you up, not tear you down. They respect you enough to let you know when you’re wrong, but they’ll do it in a loving way. Basically, everything that this person does is with you in mind, because they love and care about you, but they also respect you. And because they respect you, they will be mindful of how their decisions affect you.

4. They are excited about your success.

Who doesn’t love to have someone super excited with them about their goals and accomplishments? Your person will be your biggest fan! After all, your success makes you happy, and when you’re happy, they’re happy.

5. They get real with you when they need to.

While it may not be our favorite thing to admit, sometimes we are wrong. We mess up, we can hurt people’s feelings, and when we do mess up, our S.O. is the first one to let us know, but in a loving way. Your person is going to know your “love language”, therefore they are going to know the best way to communicate with you. Sometimes someone has to tell us when we’re being the worst, and I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer that person to be someone that loves me.

6. You don’t always have to be doing something to have fun.

You are completely fine with just hanging out. Being with that person is enough for you.

7. You can’t imagine being with anyone else.

Your person fills every part of your life that you need them to and then some. They are your better half and you cannot imagine sharing all of your life experiences with anyone but them.

8. You make each other want to be better people.

You’re your own dream team. You hype them up to be their best and they do the same for you.

9. You would do anything for them and they would do the same.

When you’ve found your person, no task is too great. And neither of you ever expect anything in return. It’s just a given that you are there for each other 100% of the time.

10. You love them more and more every single day.

Yes, it sounds SOOO corny, but trust me, it’s so true. When you’ve found the one, your life will never be the same. You never know how much you can love someone until you’ve found them, and you often wonder how you’ve gone this long without them.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
