When you're struggling in the world of dating or dealing with a toxic relationship, it's common to feel like something is wrong with you and that you're destined to be alone forever. However, once you meet someone who's a good match for you, those negative thoughts disappear. You realize that your partner fully embraces every aspect of your personality that others rejected. Although finding the right person may not happen on your schedule, it is possible to do so.
1. You'll See That There's A Lid For Every Pot
It's been said that there is a perfect match for every eccentric person out there. Like a lid that fits perfectly onto a pot, when you find the right person, everything will make sense. You'll finally understand why none of the previous relationships worked out, as they were either too big or too small. But the person who's meant for you will be just right.
2. It'll Be Confirmed That You're Incompatible With Most People
Let's be honest, you've gone through many lids over the years - some were small, some were large, some were cracked, and some had mold growing on them. You've hoped that each one would be the perfect fit, only to realize they weren't the right person for you. The truth is, almost all of the people you meet and date won't be the one for you. It takes time to find someone who is truly special; it wouldn't be worthwhile if it was quick and easy.
3. You'll Be All Right For The Person You're Meant To Be With
It's common to feel like there's something wrong with you when dating many people ends in failure. You may witness others finding their perfect match with ease while you struggle to find yours. But when you do meet that right person, everything about you will make sense. I'm a romantic at heart and believe that for the right one, you will never be too much or too little of anything.
4. They'll Love—Or At Least Accept—All Of Your Quirks
Your ex-partner may have been bothered by the fact that you preferred staying in with Netflix on a Friday night, but that's because they weren't the right fit for you. The perfect partner will embrace everything that makes you who you are, including your love for Netflix and even your snoring. You won't have to hide your quirks anymore as the right person will accept you as you are.
5. They'll Also Call You Out And Help You Grow
Finding a partner who never challenges you and thinks you're perfect all the time is unrealistic. Thankfully, such a person doesn't exist. The right person for you will be willing and able to grow with you. They will challenge you when needed and won't let you stay stagnant in your personal growth.
6. Your Feelings Of Being Good Enough Will Be Validated
You possess a strong sense of independence and are confident in your abilities. Discovering a partner who wholeheartedly validates and affirms your worth can be a powerful affirmation of your self-esteem. Receiving compliments and reassurance that you are lovely and valuable can be an uplifting experience.
7. You'll Realize That Love Does Exist
Meeting the right person for you can shatter any belief you had that true love is just a myth. It demonstrates that genuine love and affection in a romantic relationship do exist. When you are with someone who is an ideal match for you, the relationship feels different. It fits together smoothly, unlike trying to force something that just doesn't fit.
8. You'll Be Reminded That There Was Never Anything Wrong With You
The dating experience can be extremely challenging, leading to feelings of inadequacy and exhaustion. Even though you know logically that there is nothing wrong with you, repeated failed relationships can make you feel otherwise. Finally, finding someone who is compatible and supportive can be a significant reminder that you are not flawed. While you do not need someone else to validate you, it is undoubtedly a comforting feeling.
9. They May Not Be Forever, But They're Meant To Be In Your Life For A Time
It's important to keep in mind that even if you find the right person, it doesn't always mean that they'll be with you forever. The idea of meeting the perfect person and living happily ever after is more of a fairy tale than a reality. Most often, you'll find the right person and spend a few years with them, learning from each other and creating beautiful memories, before eventually parting ways. It's rare to find someone who will be with you for the rest of your life.
10. It Won't Be Perfect But It'll Be Worth It
The person I've been describing may seem like a fantasy, and you might be thinking that finding someone who's truly compatible with you is impossible. It's true that finding the right person is a daunting task, and it often involves overcoming many obstacles along the way. Even after you've found that person, the reality of love is not always like the movies; there will be challenges and disagreements that arise, as your flaws and imperfections are inevitably exposed. However, the rewards of being with someone you truly love, and who loves you for who you are, make it all worthwhile.
