Some people (men and women alike) may know right away when the woman that they’re seeing is the One. Others may be a bit slower on the uptake. Some may not know the signs to look for.
What exactly should you be looking for when it comes to making sure you’re dating the woman of your dreams? According to wedding officiant and author Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway, “There is usually a telltale sign that lets you know when true love has arrived – a voice in your head, a sense of recognition or a gut feeling that this is someone special to you.”
If you’re connecting with your soulmate, there are certain things that you’ll experience that are out of the ordinary from all of the other women you’ve ever dated.
HERE ARE 9 THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN YOU MEET YOUR DREAM GIRL
1. YOU’LL BE SURPRISED BY YOUR FEELINGS
These feelings will come hard and fast, and you’ll be completely surprised by how quickly you’re developing them. You may be slower to fall in love with other women, but when you’ve met your soulmate you’ll be floored by the strength and depth of your feelings. Despite how quickly it happens, you’re not going to feel intimidated at all. In fact, it’ll feel like the most natural thing in the world.
2. YOUR ATTRACTION WILL KEEP GROWING
Obviously, you’re going to feel attracted to her right off the bat. But the thing is, that attraction is only going to keep growing every single day. You’re never going to even want to look at another woman. Her personality and her looks are only going to keep growing on you. You’re also going to feel totally and completely satisfied. There’s nothing about her that you would change.
3. YOU’RE NOT AFRAID OF DISAGREEMENTS
In some relationships, an argument can be the end. However, when you meet the woman of your dreams, you won’t be afraid to have an argument or disagreement with her. You’ll know that your love is strong enough to survive any spat. In fact, you’ll find that your arguments are over quicker, and you’re more easily able to reconcile and apologize to one another.
4. YOU’LL ALWAYS FEEL LOVED
The woman of your dreams will never leave you feeling unloved or underappreciated. Some relationships are more casual, and can leave us wanting for emotional connection. However, you’ll know that she’s the One when you feel emotionally fulfilled and appreciated. She makes you feel special every single day, and never takes you for granted.
5. YOU SHARE COMMON GOALS
An important part of any long-lasting relationship is having goals and visions of the future that complement one another. When you meet the woman of your dreams, you’ll realize that you never have to sacrifice your vision of the future, because she’ll have similar goals in life.
Clinical psychologist and relationship expert Dr. Carmen Harra states, “More diminutive opinions will differ, but soulmates generally have the same virtues and values and see the world through a similar lens.”
Therefore, while you may not have the exact same goals, the things you want to achieve work side by side to make a happy life.
6. YOU ADORE EACH OTHER’S ANNOYING HABITS
Maybe she takes too long in the bathroom getting ready in the morning, or leaves her hair ties lying around all over the apartment. It doesn’t matter – you’re going to find those little quirks to be some of the best things about her that you love.
Brockway adds, “Soulmates often feel a sense of the familiar and a sense of comfort around each other. Many people say it’s easier to relax into that person and allow themselves to be vulnerable.” When you meet the woman of your dreams, you’re going to love every single thing about her … even the things that you disliked in past partners.
7. YOUR FEELINGS WILL FEEL NATURAL
Nothing about how you feel will be surprising or scary to you. If you’ve never been the type of man to commit to a woman before, you’ll suddenly find yourself totally ready to be with her for however long she wants you. And the best part is, these feelings will be entirely natural.
8. YOU’LL FEEL SAFE IN EACH OTHER’S COMPANY
Contrary to popular belief, even men need to feel safe and secure in a relationship. And when you meet the woman of your dreams, she’s going to make you feel entirely safe. You’ll be able to tell her things that you’ve never told anyone else.
Author Karen M. Black states, “If you’re fortunate enough to meet someone with whom you have a natural, loving relationship from the get-go, then you’re going to feel this as an unusual comfort level. A low hum. A peace and calm in your heart. A quiet certainty. A curiosity. Safety in their presence.”
Oftentimes, men have a harder time sharing their emotions. It won’t feel difficult with her – you’ll find yourself opening up and sharing things with her you haven’t told any of your past partners.
9. YOU’LL WANT TO PROTECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP
If you’re still hanging around with single guys who don’t have an interest in a relationship, you won’t tolerate taking any jabs about how deeply you feel for your partner. You may find that you’ll want to protect your relationship more than you’ve ever wanted to before. The truth is, your relationship means more to you than any other relationship, and you’ll want to protect it – and her.
Society often finds ways to make men feel like they can’t experience the full range of emotions that come with falling in love. However, men have all the same feelings that women do, and they’ll experience all the same emotions when they meet their soulmates. Finding the woman of your dreams is going to be one of the most amazing things that ever happens to you. You’ll find yourself putting more time and effort into this relationship than any other – and the results are going to be phenomenal.
