How do you know when you have finally found 'The One'?
A new poll by WhatsYourPrice.com has discovered the five signs that women need to witness in their partner to confidently say 'He's The One'.
1. He knows how to make me happy and gives me emotional security.
2. My friends and family see in him what I see.
3. He makes the mundane seem interesting.
4. We share the same priorities in life such as wanting/not wanting children.
5. I am attracted to him and we are physically compatible.
Unsurprisingly men and women gave VERY different answers when asked this question, and blokes voted sex and physical 'compatibility' as the most crucial factor when finding their soul mate.
The men surveyed said they look for the following qualities before deeming someone their 'One'...
1. I am attracted to her and we are physically compatible.
2. I love her so much I do not desire anyone else.
3. She knows how to make me happy and gives me emotional security
4. We share the same life priorities such as wanting/not wanting children
5. She will look after me well.
We had a bit of a chuckle over the last one. What do they want a partner or a nanny?!
Dating expert Helen Croydon told us, "People can put too much emphasis on defining the things that make 'The One', often at the expense of enjoying the romance of a relationship. The most important thing is that your partner gives you the confidence and freedom to say what you feel and there's a genuine feeling of being wanted. Obviously if things are good, we hope these feelings will last forever but if you obsess too much about making that happen, you can forget to enjoy your partner in the first place."
So, are we our own worst enemies (or have we watched too many Katherine Heigl rom coms?)
We refuse to believe that true love DOESN'T exist...Heathcliff it's me it's Cathy and I'm here now dammit so come and get me!
What do you think? Do you have a soul mate checklist?
