When it comes to the things that we chase after in life, the unimportant ones like money, power, and wealth eventually fade away.
However, there’s one thing that we chase after that we never stop desiring, and that’s love.
Love is the thing that binds us all together. It’s the thing that gets us up in the morning, the thing that we look for all our lives, and the thing that we can’t live without.
When you’re truly and deeply in love with someone, it’s impossible to imagine the rest of your life without being by that person’s side, sharing your experiences and happiness with each other.
But here’s the catch: how do you know if you’re truly in love with someone? How do you know if you’re really meant to spend the rest of your lives together?
How do you know if you’ve really found the man you should marry and stay with for the rest of your life?
Take The Quiz: Are You Meant To Be Together?
Well, you can’t know for certain. No one can. But what you can do is read the signs and decide whether he’s the right man to pledge your heart to for the rest of your lives.
So here are the 9 signs that you’ve found the man you were meant to be with, the man who’s meant to become your husband:
1. You Can Be Yourself Around Him
We’ve all been in relationships with guys who we’re not totally comfortable around. Guys who we feel like we have to “perform” or be “on” in front of in order to make the relationship work.
Your future husband won’t care whether you’re “on” or not on any given day. He’ll love you for who you are – when you’re just being yourself and not putting on any kind of show – and he won’t ever want to let that person go.
Here are 8 signs he’s in love with you.
2. Your Romantic Ideas Are Compatible
Some people think that delivery pizza and Netflix under a blanket is the height of romance. Others go the whole 9 yards with long moonlit walks on the beach and flowers.
Whatever your ideas about romance are, he’s tapped into them and feels the same way. Even going to the grocery store with each other can be romantic if you’re both on the same wavelength.
3. After Terrible Days You Just Want To Be With Him
Even if you’re in the worst mood in the world, being with him is better than being alone.
He’s there to listen to you when you have something you need to get off your chest, and to really listen and grasp the meaning of what you’re trying to say. He’ll always respond honestly, and knows what to say to make you feel better.
End any fight with these 5 simple steps.
4. He Really Listens To What You Have To Say
He doesn’t just respond “Uh huh…” or “Yeah…” when you’re talking to him – he really pays attention and thinks about what you’re telling him.
He can hear what you’re really trying to tell him, even if you’re talking about something different, and can communicate with you clearly, effectively, and empathetically. You don’t have to explain yourself with him – he just knows.
5. He’s Happy When You’re Happy, Plus The Other Way Around
You know you’ve found someone truly special when they’re not just willing, but eager to sacrifice a little bit of their own happiness if it means making you happy.
Finding the person who genuinely takes joy from your happiness is one of the greatest things in life. And what makes it even better is when you are also able to take joy from their happiness, and give to each other selflessly and without restraint.
Take this quiz and find out if you’re really meant to be together.
6. You Want To Share Your Whole Life With Them
Every time you think about what’s going to happen in the future, and how the rest of your life is going to play out, your partner is always there, supporting and encouraging you, even in your daydreams.
It’s not scary to think about the rest of your life and see him in it. Quite the opposite – thinking about spending the rest of your life with him fills you with a profound sense of peace.
If something happens to you during your day, big or small, your first thought is of sharing it with him.
7. The Magnetism And Attraction Between You Is Undeniable
The two of you are just locked in with each other on every level. You’re attracted to each other physically, and emotionally and mentally you’re always on the same plane.
You felt the chemistry brewing from the first time you met, and when you’re with him, the magnetic attraction between you can’t be ignored.
8. The Really Good Times Outweigh The Bad
You express love and desire for each other way more than you wind up fighting. In fact, when you fight, both of you try to get to the root of the matter so that you can go back to loving each other as quickly as possible.
Fights aren’t about hurting each other, they’re about expressing yourselves and solving problems together. No matter what, you just can’t stay mad at each other.
9. He Loves You For Exactly Who You Are
So what if you don’t keep things as tidy at home as he does? He loves you anyway.
He doesn’t let personal peccadillos and quirks get in the way of the love he has for you, in fact he relishes those differences… because he knows that’s the good stuff.
He’s proud, proud to be with you, proud to be in love with you, and proud that you’re in love with him – and he wears that pride and happiness on his sleeve all day.

I need a forever person and will divorce my husband to find the perfect guy.
been years searching for someone good
All my friends and junior ones are married with kids am the only one that remains and this gives me lots of concern.Am a lady at the age of 35years till single.My instinct keeps telling me you will be surprise when your husband will come and age is not by my side.
Love this. I live by this every, single day. I am in love with my life. TIll death do us part. Amen.
I have been in several play relationships.. But my current relationship seems a bit serious than the previous ones…but I dnt k I’m in love with the guy…and so.etimes too I do feel he extremely loves me beyond all
I seriously need help cos I want to get married all my friends are married apart from me I don’t even find de guy I lov all de ones am meeting dey don’t have de quality I need from a guy pls wat should I do
I had everything on this list with my ex when I was younger, but he just wanted sex. Still, he was my best friend. I guess I wasted my one shot at true love with a guy who was not serious. I’ve never loved anyone that way again. In fact, after him I got with my rebound, had a child and got abused the entire 7 yr relationship. Why couldn’t I have that with a guy who felt the same? fml
hello pls I need your help in my relationship life
Im not sure what this feelings is. i seriously dont know. im quite sure that im not in love with him n i dont think I have a crush on him since my definition of crush is when you got that heart attack or flutter but i do not. At some point yes i have but that just it. But somehow theres this something that make me keep going. Theres just a connection between us that i dont know exactly what. We never talk like ever but we always make eye contacts each other. And somehow i feel like he has an interest on me like me to him. Again interest. Thats what im sure right now what my feelings is. Thats why i need your help n advice, am i actually have real feeling toward him without me knowing or maybe just because i am lonely?
Hello guys what you have been saying is good but i think we first have to know and love ourselfs. That is easier said than done. Because we are the worst critic of our action than anybody else. My sister always says dont let anybody treat you worse than you treat your self. So when we havent found the right guy/girl it means we are given time to work on our self. And i mean to love our self before anybody loves us. Cause it would be ironic to expect someone to love us when we dont love our selfs. To be okay with us even if there is no prince charming.
I have been married for 8 years en throught that 8 years i still haven’t experienced what is like to be inlove. It came to a point that i cheated on my husband so this guy is the guy i have been waiting for my whole life just the thought of him sends butterflies all over my body i am happy with him. The only reason am still stuck in the mariage is the kids whearease am not happy. My husbands finds fault in everything i do, he comes home after 12am daily. He beats me always belittles me, his word goes my opinion don’t matter at all. Will i b a bad mother to get out of this marriage to be with someone i really love
You wouldn’t be a bad mom you’d actually be doing what’s good for you, acting like your happy doesn’t make you happy like you should be. And if you love someone else it’s only fair to tell him that you want out that there’s someone else, it might end bad you guys probably won’t be friends or talk twenty four seven but as long as you tell the truth then there’s nothing really to worry about. I wish you the best of luck.

I know I’ve found the woman that I’ve been searching for in life / waiting to come into my life, PERIOD!!! BUT, there’s one HUGE problem, and I honestly don’t want to lose her over it AND I don’t know how to handle it. I’m GOING TO do the right thing BUT HOW, how do I NOT lose her in the process? I’m a over the road truck driver. Well long story short, I had a fwb and supposedly she’s pregnant and she’s saying that she knows it’s 100% mine. She’s only or will be 4 weeks on the 8th of January and the woman, I say WOMAN because SHE’S A REAL TRUE WOMAN and I freakin LOOOOOOVE that I found a real, no game’s, true real life, old fashioned woman that I’ve been waiting for, knows about the pregnancy with the fwb. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I’m begging for advice on what to do. I had a conversation with a RREALLY close good MALE friend about this last night and he told me what she’s doing if she’s the REAL WOMAN that I say she is, and he was 100 % DEAD RIGHT!! She’s sitting back watching how I handle this situation… ok… understandable, understandable, but SHE TRULY LOVES ME AND I CAN HONESTLY FEEL HOW MUCH LOVE she has for me and omg I’ve never NEVER EVER experienced the way she loves me before because I TRULY FEEL IT AND IT’S EXTREMELY EXTREMELY STRONG!!! But she’s scared because of what her ex husband did, that I’m a repeat of it… and I’m NOT THAT WAY!!! I TRULY know what true love feels like as I was TRULY MADLY IN LOVE or so I thought with myou ex, but that doesn’t come ANYWHERE CLOSE TO the love and falling in love with the woman I’m in love with now feels!! Please please please please please I’m asking for advice on what to do in this situation from females mainly but males and females. I NEED some desperate ADVICE or I’m going to lose EXACTLY WHAT I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR IN A WOMAN TO SPEND THE REST OF OUR LIVES TOGETHER WITH and THAT CANNOT, I REPEAT CANNOT HAPPEN!! Feel free to reply here :) please I don’t know exactly how to handle this and NOT LOSE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!!! IN JESUS’S NAME, AMEN!!! :)
If this fwb decides to have the baby.. so what? Be in the kids life and stay with your love of your life and have visitation and treat it as if she is your x..don’t give up true love.. she loves you so deep, she will deal with it.. question though.. was the child conceived while you were dating love of life?
I felt pretty good about my gusband when i was able to open up to him. I have always been a bit reserved, so that was a big step for me.
and it’s true wen u stop looking for Mr right then he comes at a tym u least expect him
I love all the messages they just give m hope that maybe one day I will find the right guy
I broke up with my boyfriend for over two years now,cos i didn’t believe in what he belived in(premarital sex)but i have never stoped thinking of him!he called me yesterday that he would like to me abt something,since then i havn’t been myself;iam feeling
I didn’t quite understand your message. If you can say it again, more understanding, I’ll see if I can possibly help… can’t guarantee I can but we’ll try :)
I feel relieved of some troubles ahead of me
I feel like I could have found the one because the way I interact with him! He is starting to feel more comfortable around me and is smiling more!! I finally got through to him! I need to know what you think!!
I will never find the Man of my dreams, or get married etc. That just happens to everyone else. And in Disney movies.
The “man of your dreams” is a real, ordinary guy whose universe revolves around you. Hopefully, he’ll also have a job and a sense of honor. Compatibility and shared interests trump Disney every day after day after day….
No, his universe does NOT revolve around you. That is also the same “Disney” fantasy you’re complaining about…
Real love is not about finding that dream-guy but accepting the reality that no one is perfect (yes, that goes for the ladies as well) and mutually having the courage to forgive those personal imperfections and knowing and respecting your mutually chosen partner (emphasis on “partner”) as an individual and work (emphasis on “work”) through differences with the understanding that differences do not create conflict as self-righteousness and projection of “worst intent” clearly does.
So how do you know he’s “the one”? …
When you can’t wipe that smile off your face at the very thought of him, when he texts you “good morning” and “good night” like clock work, when he asks about how your day is going or how it went, when he tells you what he is doing and where he is going without you asking, when he looks you in the eye and says “I love you”, when he tells you he feels comfortable and cozy around you and falls asleep in your arms, when he trusts you enough to let you work those extra hours at the office snd sends you off with a “Be safe”, when he holds your hand everywhere you go, when he spontaneously pulls you into an alcove to make out before walking up to the theater entrance, when he looks you in the eye and tells you exactly what he wants: “I want to be in your heart. I want to take care of you. I want to go where no one can bother us.”, “I want to see you only. Will you do the same for me?”, “We go well together.” in his adorable heart-melting accent… and afirms his intentions multiple times. I could go on. :)
Yes, this dream guy seemed to have fallen out of the sky and into my lap… He is not perfect be any definition of a Hollywood dream-guy but I absolutely love everything about him anyway. I never thought in my wildest dreams I would get so so so lucky and be so so so happy. :)
Early on, I had been confused that this was another fluke. I constantly questioned myself “Why did he pick me. If he’s too good to be true, it’s not real…” etc etc…
But recently realized that something I was projecting in my personality drew him to me. Wow… So you, my dear need to understand that you must do your part by being the right dream-gal for your dream-guy so to speak. You will attract the persona that you project. Plain and simple.
I hope this helps. :)
dnt say dat zara
at your own time
well.. its difficult to find man like that.
It seems so easy to know if the guy is right for you. I do not think it happens so easily, but thanks for the hope.
A husband for the future is a good goal :) I will have to keep a few of these in mind the next time I get the feeling in am in a great relationship with a man!
Isn’t that the point of dating? To find the husband or wife ( not necessarily marriage) to Spend the rest of yalls life together ? I know that’s my goal or what I’m looking for in a woman to date, whether I / we could spend the rest of our lives together with NO DIVORCE!!
Great post! I have been wondering if I would ever really know that a man was interested in me.
Great. Now I just have to keep my eyes open for a guy that I would like to spend any time with :)
Maybe you should have tried spending it with the guy you were dating at the time . No wonder it didn’t work. You were still looking
I was always told by my mom that the man that will become my husband is going to show up when you least expect it!
Its all about the romance and feeling comfortable for me. The rest of these things would just be a bonus!
Well, some people miss these signs and then the cry in their wine all night long. It didn’t happen to me :) I just know a person…
Let’s go with that.
If you both can imagine being happy at the same time, that is a pretty good sign. I had a b/f that always seemed to be in a bad mood when I wasn’t and it happened the other way around too. How weird is that?
When I found my husband, I knew right away because he was just like the type of person that would give out some of these signs. Thanks for posting, they hit home for me!
I would say that these are some VERY good signs. If you are lucky enough to see these types of signs, then it would be up to you to realize that they are showing you a future husband could be in the works.
Coming home to a loving b/f, fiance or husband is a great feeling after a hard day at work. If he wants to listen to my bad day, I would mark that as a sign of a future husband :)
Very good points! I think that all of these are very good and needed in a relationship!
Well, having the same romantic ideas is a good thing, sometimes it keeps you from trying new things.
I am so happy! Recently I was thinking about my current b/f asking me to marry him (we have been together for 5 years) and it happened last weekend! Great news for us!
when it comes to finding that husband material, you need to stop looking :) that is all it took for me. all of a sudden BOOM, there he was, there we were and now our family is happier than ever!
That is real good news for you! Thank you for sharing your experience to motivate the rest of us.
Phyllie there has to be more to it. I havent been looking for a man for over 5 years and I’m still single. Elaborate please? Does this rule apply to the introvert?
Once you are able to share that one thing that you only share with close friends, with him. I think it might be a good time to see if you think the rest of your life could be spent with him.
The minute I knew that I could be “myself” around him I felt pretty good about our relationship. It might have taken about 2 months, but you have to protect yourself first right?
I think your protection is the absolutely the most important thing to remember.
I felt pretty good about my husband when I was able to open up to him. I have always been a bit reserved, so that was a big step for me.
