10 Signs You’ve Found The Woman You Should Settle Down With

There’s one thing we’re all chasing after, and that is love.

Falling in love is like coming home. Your worries are quieted and you feel protected in your partner’s arms. And when you’re deep in love, it’s hard not to picture the rest of your life with that other person.

But how do we know for certain that it’s real forever and not just a fantasy?

Here are the ten signs you’ve found the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with:

1. You don’t need to pretend

Good days and bad days, you can totally be yourself — whatever mood you’re in — and she always thinks you shine. She understands who you are and doesn’t expect you to be anyone but yourself. There’s no pretending. You can lounge in stained sweatpants and not formulate sentences; she gets it because she’s right there with you.

2. At the end of a really bad day, all you want is to be with her

No matter what kind of crummy mood you’re in, you’d rather be with her than be alone. She will always patiently listen to you, while you speak your mind and she won’t invalidate your concerns with her honest feedback. Her confidence and passion positively influence your own, which makes your relationship all the more exciting. You want to be near her, always.

3. The attraction is more than just physical

Physically, emotionally and mentally, you two are compatible on all those levels. The chemistry between you both is powerful enough to block everything else out. Even doing the littlest things together, such as running to the grocery store, feel more special because she’s around. You can’t keep your hands off each other and you certainly aren’t holding back.

4. You want to share every experience with her

When you envision your future, she has a major role in it (and vice versa). The idea of spending the rest of your life with her doesn’t scare you. Being by her side is where you feel most comfortable.

5. She not only listens to you, but she also hears what you’re saying

She can read between the lines and anticipate your needs without you having to communicate them all the time. She knows what you are trying to say without having to always explain yourself. You help each other grow and become the people you want to be.

6. You have the same idea of romance

Whatever your definition of romance is — intimate dinners, long road trips, cuddling in bed — she shares in it and will go the extra step to make that happen.

7. You love more than you fight

It never feels good to fight because you care too much about her to hurt her. The compromise always seems like the best option because you both can be happy. But at the end of the day, you really can’t stay mad at each other for long.

8. Your happiness is her happiness, and vice versa

You know she’s the one because she’s good to you in ways that you’ve never thought possible. She wants what’s best for you, even if it comes at a cost to her.

9. She accepts you as you are

You’re messier, louder and maybe less funny, but she loves you for it. She makes you feel good about all those things you might dislike about yourself.

She knows everything about you — good and bad — and appreciates both because it’s all part of who you are.

10. She lets the world know you’re her true love

She brags about you to her friends because she’s so proud to call you her own. You would brag more, except everyone already knows how enamoured you are.

You are hers, she is yours and suddenly it all feels comfortingly simple.

Every Love Story is Unique: ‘Sometimes We Only Get One Shot’

We’ve all been there before. We see an stranger in a public space. We feel an attraction. And we wonder, “Do I make a move?”

Simone Davis saw a beautiful woman but was too shy to approach her. Fortunately, fate and a little courage brought them together.

The girl Simone saw might have not have been dressed to the nines, but she felt a sudden attraction.

She and the stranger get on the same train. The entire train ride, Simone knows she wants to talk to her.

I don’t say anything, because I’m too shy. This girl will think I’m crazy for just walking across the train and talking to her out of nowhere. Number two, she’s out of your league. She’s way too pretty. And number three, she’s probably straight.”

Hmmmm, The Pros and Cons of a #FriendsWithBenefits Relationship

The companionship of a good friend is second to none. There is just something so enjoyable in talking and spending time with a friend. But what happens when a sexual attraction develops between you? Is it a good idea to become friends with benefits?

First and foremost you need to ask yourself if you are capable of having this kind of a relationship. If you associate sex with love, tend to get jealous easily or fall head over heels in love with good sexual partners, this is not your thing.

One of the benefits of a friend with benefits relationship is the freedom. The ability to have fun with someone without a commitment. It is convenient with no pressure. When you get tired of it you just move on. It sure beats staying at home and watching that TV show on Friday.


Maybe you are busy in school or a career and not looking for a serious relationship. We all have needs and having an endless number of lovers is not a good idea. Plus, a friend knows you. He knows how you react to certain things and what turns you on. A recipe for a good time.

So is it all rosy in this type of a relationship? Not by a long shot. When you start a relationship with no rules or boundaries you stay there. You cannot go back and start over again. Once the physical attraction wanes the friendship starts to die as well.

The most expensive cost of this casual relationship though is the lack of commitment. When you give and give expecting nothing in return. You give your time, body and emotions without a commitment you sell yourself short. Commitment is the price you pay in any healthy relationship.

At the end of the day you should weigh the pros and cons then decide for yourself. Remember to be true to who you are and who you want to be in the future.
