He is the perfect guy, your absolute dream man, and he is the person you have been waiting for your whole life. You would remember your first dates, the first time he held your hand, the first time he told you he loves you, and the first moment when you officially became together. You love him with your whole life, but there is still that lingering question in your head:

Is he the one for you?

This is a tricky question because you can love a person to the point of breaking your own heart, but he still wouldn’t be the right person for you. If only there was a way to really know if the man you’re with is the person you’re destined to be with, but life doesn’t work out that way. If it does, then it would save a whole of women from heartbreaks.

So how do you know if he’s the right one for you? How can you tell if you’ve already found the guy who will love you for the rest of your life? Here are 8 signs that you’ve already found him:

1. He shares his dreams with you.
The first sign to look out for if he’s the one for you is he shares his dreams with you, and not only that, you are part of his dreams. He is already building his future with you in it, he considers you in every major decision in his life, and he goes to the effort of making you feel involved in his life as much as possible.

2. He supports you in everything you do.
He is the one for you if he supports you in everything you do. Whenever you have an idea in mind, he is the first one to support you, when things get tough, he’s there to comfort you and pull you up from the pits, and when you finally succeed, he is the first one to congratulate you on your hard work. He is the constant rock in your life that you know you can always lean on when things get tough.

3. He tells it like it is.
He is not afraid to say his thoughts to you. If he doesn’t think like your decisions or if it’s too risky, he will let you know. He is not doing this just to strike up an argument or to get on your nerves, but instead, he cares enough about you to let tell you and inform you on making a good decision. The right person will always choose to be honest with you and tell you like it is instead of comforting you with a lie.

4. He lets you be yourself.
You can truly say he is the one if he lets you be yourself. You may meet some men in this life who are controlling because they want their woman to be the exact image they have in mind, take our advice, turn around, and run the other direction! The guy for you will never allow you to feel bad about you being yourself because he truly loves you for who you are and no one else.

5. He protects you every chance he can.
He will defend you every chance he gets, from exterior issues, other friends, and even from his own family, especially when he knows you are not in the wrong. It’s important to have the man you love to take your side during this rough arguments because you will need his support now more than ever.

6. He makes you laugh every day.
If you can laugh with him every day, then he is the one. If there’s another thing more binding than trust in a relationship, it’s friendship. Friendship is built upon shared experiences and shared humor as well! You will never get tired of spending the rest of your life with a man who can make you laugh about the silliest of things.

7. He loves your family like you do.
Your family is his family and his family is yours as well. It doesn’t matter to him because you are all tied by love and blood. If he respects your parents and treats you the way you ought to be treated, then you surely know he is a keeper. The right person will know that when courting a girl, you court her family too because her family will eventually be his in the future.

8. He prays with you.
Lastly, the most defining sign that he’s the one for you if he prays with you. When he shares your faith and your belief in God, then you’re confident in him that he will carry you throughout the rest of his life. He will never be a part of your sorrows because he knows it is his duty as your husband to be your rock.

How do you truly know? Do you wait for God to whisper in your ear to tell you? Do you wait for the heavens to drop a stop sign for you to finally understand that this person is the one for you? Which signs do we look for and how do we know this is it?

So many questions and so little answers. The signs we mentioned above only scratch the surface of what we call the mixture of love and live. But that what makes everything so exciting, right? The unpredictability of life is what keeps us going.

Remember that these are only signs to guide you. There are a lot more ways to tell if the man you are in love with is truly the man for you. If you find yourself in a relationship and the fun and exciting phase has already faded, but when you look at the person you love, you feel this slight flutter in your heart and it doesn’t matter where life takes you, the important thing is that he is going to be there with you every step of the way.
