25 Signs Your Significant Other Is In It For The Long Haul

They're in it for the long haul.

Ride-or-die (n): "To be down with your husband/wife no matter what, through it all, the good and the bad."

Ride-or-die guys (and gals), also known as a significant other that sticks with you, are hard to come by. Regardless of whether this person puts a ring on it, they're someone to hold on to and cherish. They're a rare, yet beautiful, type of person everyone deserves to have.

If you're unsure if your "person" is ride-or-die, these signs are pretty good indicators:

1. When they see you're upset, they ask what's wrong.

2. They talk about their future — and you're in it.

3. They don't make you feel guilty for wanting to hang out with friends, or for wanting to be your own person. They encourage it.

4. When you tell them about your problems, they listen. 

5. When you tell them about your triumphs, they're proud.

6. They take the time to surprise you every so often.

7. They love to be around your family, and your family loves them too.
