Taking things step by step and not too getting caught up in the future when it comes to relationships is so important. The truth of the matter is that love can be complicated. Most people evolve and grow immensely over the course of their lives, particularly in their 20s, when most of us are coming to grips with adulthood and deciding what type of life we want to live. Unfortunately, this presents the possibility of growing apart from someone you might have seen yourself growing old with. That being said, there are definitely things that signal you’re with someone who would be a good fit for you in the long run.
1. You’ve Stuck Together Through Ups And Downs
It’s almost impossible to say with certainty that you’re with your forever person before you’ve seen them at their worst and vice versa. Seeing how someone deals with negative circumstances and life’s baggage is one of the most important things to figure out when you’re still getting to know each other.
Weathering storms as a unit can be difficult, but it also presents the opportunity to grow together and become a stronger couple. So if you’ve weathered those downpours together, and your relationship has still come out on top, then that’s a good sign it’s built to last.
2. They Put You First
This can come in the form of backing you up and defending you when it counts, as well as eagerly devoting as much of their free time to spending quality time with you as possible.
