25 Signs You Found The Person You Could Spend The Rest Of Your Life With


Whenever someone in a movie or on TV wonders if their love interest is the one, the answer almost always boils down to "you'll know when you know." But the truth is, unless you have a fortune teller on call, there really is no way to know — and it's not that simple.

In real life, knowing someone is right for you extends much deeper than the butterflies in your stomach. It's both loving who that person is as a human being, and knowing they make you a better person, too.

Of course, this is no magic formula, but I can attest that someone with more than half of these qualities is not only a keeper, but more importanly, just a flat out amazing person. After all, shouldn't they be one in the same?

1. They surprise you for no other reason than to see a smile on your face
