12 Ways Your Body Knows You Have Found 'The One', According To Science
Published in May 2021 / Updated in Oct 2021
Our hearts easily know we have met "the one," but do our bodies actually realize we have finally connected with our soulmates?
Science has found out the truth: your body knows you have found your one and only.
Getting butterflies in your stomach after meeting the love of your life might sound like a cliché, but this evidence shows that there might be a lot of truth to it.
So, your mind is not the only part of your body that tells you that you have probably met the most important person in your life by making you think about the person day and night.
A few other things in your body will also start to change.
For instance, their touch will feel heavenly. So, your body does a better job of knowing if you like this person than your judgment or your friends' tips might.
In other words, there are plenty of signals and hints from our bodies that we have finally met "the one," and here they are.
1. A Warm Fuzzy Feeling
When around your ideal partner, it will feel like you are enjoying the warm rays of the sun. The truth is that you are basking in the warmth of their presence as they enjoy your beautiful radiance.
So, the next time your date makes you feel cold and withdrawn, that's not a very good sign regardless of how good a partner the person seems on paper.
2. Feelings Of Positivity
Positivity is the attitude that makes life worthwhile. There are few things more important than having the right attitude in life.
So, nobody should take away your optimism.
When you meet "the one," you should feel more optimistic than ever.
That means anyone who makes you feel like your constructive energies have declined is wrong for you. The wrong partner will only arouse negative feelings in you regardless of how many benefits they bring into your life.
So, don't be fooled into thinking that real love will make you feel jealous, envious, resentful, vengeful, or hateful. If that's happening, you still haven't found the one.
3. Lots Of Motivation
When you meet the right person for you, you will have an immense and unexplained amount of motivation. Things that you struggled through might feel like bliss.
This positive change definitely means you have met the right person. This proves that the person is not trying to limit you or pull you down on a deeper level.
The right people fill you with zeal and energy. This person will inspire you to be the best you could ever be.
Somebody who makes you doubt yourself and lose focus on things you previously enjoyed is not right for you.
4. You Are More Like Yourself
Being with the right person makes you more confident in who you are. You relax and take pride in who you really are because this person can see you for who you are and still stick around.
Therefore, if you realize that your body posture is open and easy around this person and that their presence makes you feel calm and comfortable, then you have found the one and only.
Otherwise, if you feel insecure and uncomfortable around this person, then you need to rethink the relationship.
5. You Love Their Scent
Believe it or not, your sense of smell helps you know if someone is right for you or not. In fact, the sense of smell is one of the most powerful smells you have.
So, if this person's smell makes you feel wonderful and puts a smile on your face, then your body clearly approves of the connection you share.
According to experts, humans don't use pheromones as other animals do, but they have pretty powerful sensory abilities which play an important role in attraction or the lack of it.
6. You Are Inspired To Be Healthier
Someone who is right for you will inspire you to make healthier life changes, and without being judgmental about it.
You will be inspired to have a healthier diet, work out, eat regularly, and so forth. That means this person sees a future with you and is investing in your health.
7. Your Intuition
Intuition can save your life. Although there isn't much science behind this human sense, it plays an important role when it comes to selecting life partners.
Lately, scientists have shown that intuition is important in helping us make better decisions. So, if your intuition says this person is okay, the chances are that they definitely are.
8. Ability To Demonstrate Empathy
People disagree, whether they love each other or not. However, when you disagree with someone you love, you are less likely to engage in a ruthless war of words.
Instead, people who love each other will try to understand their partner's point of view.
This is rare, and you only see it in people who truly love each other. So, having a partner who goes out of their way to see things your way is truly special.
9. Cuddling Feels Really Good
A partner you are comfortable with will be an amazing cuddle buddy as well. In fact, you will feel like you can cuddle up to them whenever you feel like it.
With this person, their touch makes you feel at peace with the world.
Cuddling with the right person makes you feel a deep sense of connection and brings a lot of intimate satisfaction into your life.
However, with the wrong person, cuddling can feel like torture.
10. You Feel Calm
There are a few things more important than peace in this life. When around the person you love, you should feel calm, not anxious.
The right partner should make you feel comfortable.
11. Lasting Impression
Once a special person comes into your life, even for a day, they will leave an impression. So, if you always find yourself thinking about how this person has impacted your life, then you should definitely not let them go.
Missing someone is a really good sign that they have left an impression.
12. You Feel You Need Them
By your own judgment, it might not seem like you have anything you need from this person. However, if you still feel like you need them, even if they don't bring anything quantifiable benefits into your life, then your body is telling you that you have found the one.
The right person will arouse in you needs you never knew you had, regardless of how independent, self-sufficient and happy you were before you crossed paths.
Very few people can make you have this feeling. So, if you feel like you need this person, even when you can't explain why then that's "the one."
So, do you think you have met your one and only yet? Most people don't realize that they have met this special person until it's too late.
Hopefully, these tips will ensure you don't miss your once-in-a-lifetime chance to connect with your soulmate.
