2. You don't agree on everything

One of the important myths to dispel is the belief that you'll feel completely compatible in every way. For example, you'll have the same hobbies, the same likes and dislikes, and the same politics.

4. He feels safe

If he feels like he is home when he is with you then you could be the one for him. When you're with the right person, you feel comfortable and relaxed. If every time you're together things are negative, that's not a good sign.

5. Your similarities are compatible 

Chances are that you won't be exactly alike, and this is a good thing. Men and women get to learn a lot from their differences. But there is one arena where compatibility is very important feelings.

How do you both relate to anger, sadness, fear, and joy? How do you express affection and love? If you have very different feelings about feelings, it can cause trouble.

6. He doesn't mourn the single life

When he finds "the one," he's thankful for what she adds to his life. He shouldn't compare his committed relationship with you to what he might be missing out on by being single.

7. You agree on children

The only other make-or-break issue in determining if you're "the one" is the issue of children.

Whether you both want them or neither of you do, agreeing on this important fact is key to settling down with the person meant for you.
