When you meet the one, there are some cases in which it becomes immediately obvious. In other cases, it can take time, but regardless, several signs will point you in the right direction.

If you’ve ever been in love, then you already know how wonderful of a feeling it is to truly be in love. If you’ve ever been hurt, then you also realize how that wonderful feeling can become disfigured, leaving you in tatters. Perhaps that is the biggest reason for understanding the difference between the woman of your dreams and the woman of your nightmares.

According to relationship experts, there are several ways to tell when you’ve met the woman of your dreams, i.e., the one. Sarah Ryan, an international matchmaker, writer, and renowned relationship expert says, “If you can’t imagine your life without your partner, you both make each other better people and communicate, connect and have chemistry on a deeper level than ever before then there is every chance this is your person.

“Finding your life partner is about being in a relationship where you grow together, learn together and are building a life together and if you can’t comprehend doing that with someone other than the person you are in a relationship with right now, even during the hard times, then consider this to be the real deal.”

Another tell-tell sign, Carmen Harra, a psychologist and author explains, “You experience a sense of familiarity right away,” she said. “His or her touch, scent, taste, comportment, language ― will be comforting and recognizable to you. You may even feel an odd sense of déjà vu, as if the moment in time has already taken place, perhaps a long time ago in a different setting.”

And if you still don’t feel confident in the fact that you’ve found her, Ben Edwards, another relationship expert, and coach say to look for a sense of peace. Being with the one will bring a sense of feeling content unlike any other. You won’t want to search for anything more, and you will feel confident in your relationship.

Of course, it will take time to know and to grow together, but if you have a good feeling right away, and a love that continues to grow, develop and evolve, then it’s likely you’ve already found her. Trust in yourself and trust in her, and continue to feed the relationship. Perhaps the most important sign of true love isn’t something that instantly works, but instead is something including two people who are determined to learn, grow and thrive as a team, despite all of the odds stacked against them.
