You and you’re partner might get along great but there’s always a doubt in your mind about whether he or she is the right person for you.

It is actually a very common worry! But they are signs to focus on!

We’ve put together a list of things to help you recognize whether you’re dating the right person or not.

#You disagree a lot

No two relationships are the same and some individuals are more likely to have arguments than others. Having arguments is normal, even healthy in a relationship.

However, there is a difference between communicating differences and fighting through them.

Ask yourself if your approach to dealing with differences is productive and healthy?

If the answer is no, maybe you need to try talking and not fighting.

If you realize that there are some very important things that you are not at all on the same page, perhaps that’s a sign that your relationship may never blossom?

#Your friends don’t like your partner

Whether they tell you or not, your friends have your back!

So they want you to be treated right. So even though we think we know best when it comes to our relationships, our friends have our backs and they see things more clearly.

So maybe you should try and find out exactly why your friends don’t like your partner instead of shrugging it off.

Ask them for constructive criticism, and then take some time to balance the information you’ve received.

#You don’t like your partner’s friends

As the saying goes, you can judge a person by their friends.

Their friends are also a good indication of what your partner is like – at the end of the day they get along for a reason and that’s because they most probably have things in common.

So if those things are personality traits you don’t like in a person, maybe your feelings for your partner are clouding your judgment.

It is important to feel that your partner and you have similar values, or at least that those values complement each other or respect each other. If you feel that the dynamic of your partner’s friends is toxic, that’s an early sign that your relationship might not be what you’d like to be.

#Other couples don’t want to hang out with you

If you’re friends and their partners always seem to be busy when you ask to double date, maybe there’s a reason for that.

Try not to get cross with your friends and instead take a look at your relationship with your partner and whether this might be influencing your friend’s decision not to hang out.

Are you always arguing? Or perhaps you feel a constant need to show your love?

Maybe you’re acting in a certain way because of the insecurities you feel. Sit down, take your time and think about it. Maybe your relationship brings the worst of you?

#You don’t think about your partner much

This point seems quite evident because when you really like someone they will be on your mind most of the time and not only when you’re spending time with them.

So, if you enjoy your freedom and don’t seem to ever miss your partner. Listen to your instinct. 

It might be scary at first, the idea of being single, but after all, it seems that it is what your body and mind enjoy most at the present.

#Trust issues

If you don’t trust your partner or they don’t trust you this should be a great big warning light! A relationship without trust is no relationship at all.

#Trying to change each other

If you’re trying to change your partner to an ideal partner or vice versa then this is also not healthy. You should be dating someone for who they are not who you want them to be. It’s natural to have likes and dislikes about someone but in a relationship, you should appreciate one another, flaws and all.
