“I have found the one my soul loves” Song of Solomon 3:4
Finding your soulmate isn’t always as simple as we imagine it to be. But it’s something we all want: to find the one. And when at last you meet THE ONE, and the birds are singing and the sun is shining and the world seems right, it’s natural to want to take the next step.
After twenty-one years of working with couples, we have learned a lot about soul mates. Every day, couples come into our shop, gushing with happiness. Their engagement stories have taught us so much about love.
While every love story is different, there is one thing that seems true with every couple we meet: the instant he knew she was “the one”, he had to act on it!
So, how do you know when you’ve met the one? Today, we want to share some lessons we’ve learned from real couples who’ve purchased their rings at Jensen Jewelers. Whether you’re just starting to date or you’ve been in a relationship for years, we hope this post will help guide you in taking the next step in your love story.
9 Obvious Signs You’ve Met Your Soulmate
#1 You’re Content with Silence
Love rests in the pauses, but it does not disappear. Finding peace in silent moments is an important part of every relationship.
Oftentimes, non-verbal expressions are the best representations of our true selves. When you can look at someone and know what they are thinking and feeling, then you’ve reached a deeper level in your relationship. So, if you should find yourself sitting in happy silence with your partner, recognize this as a positive sign in your relationship.
#2 You Have a Shared Vision of the Future
Have you had “the talk” about your future? Our happiest couples share the same vision of the future, like how many children they want, where they might want to live, what their goals are, etc. Even though some small discrepancies may occur, your partner will have a similar outlook and timeline for the years to come.
#3 You’ve Seen and Accepted One Another’s Imperfections
Nobody’s perfect, am I right? However, often our imperfections are what define us. Your soulmate will not only accept your imperfections, but they will continue loving you through it all.
Don’t be afraid to show your imperfections to your partner. The truer you are, the deeper your relationship can become.
#4 You Bring Out the Best in Each Other
Your soulmate will always strive to help you shine. When you are with your soulmate, you will become the best version of yourself. Encourage your partner to be the best version of who they are and you will soon find that you, in turn, will become better as well.
#5 You’re a Unified Team
As they say, “Teamwork is dream work.” While you can’t expect to work flawlessly in every situation, you will find that working as a team with your soulmate is completely natural, productive and healthy.
#6 You Crave Being Together
It’s instinctual to want to be near your soulmate. When you are without your partner, you will feel an innate pull to return to them. Listen to these longings.
#7 You Listen and Feel Heard
Your soulmate will advocate for you and respect when you advocate for yourself. Healthy relationships encourage open and respectful communication, both ways.
Your soulmate will not only voice their opinion but also kindly listen to yours.
#8 You Respect Differences
You and your soulmate will have differences. But, you will also respect these differences in one another. The important thing is not that you are always “the same” but rather that your differences are respected.
#9 You Cannot Imagine Life Apart
When you meet your soulmate, you will ask yourself, “How could I live without you?” Just as you have a shared vision for the future, you also cannot imagine your life without your soulmate.
So, what do you think? Have you met your soulmate? In the comments below share the one sign that let you know you had met your soulmate! We can’t wait to hear what you have to share.
