There are lots of signs that you can look for when you are in the type of relationship that is meant to last. Growing old with someone can be difficult to grasp when you are younger, but that's what everyone strives for right? Below, I've got some of the best ways to tell if you are with someone that you can actually grow old with and what that looks like.
1 Your Heart is Completely Unguarded
The first thing that you've got to figure out is if your heart is completely and utterly unguarded when you are around them. Are there barriers that are preventing you from truly loving them? Evaluate it and see how you feel. Do you have a guard around your heart? You'll need to figure out why.
2 The Walls Are All down
This is another thing to keep in mind, are all of your walls down? Are you letting him in? Are you really letting yourself be you? If so, it's probably because you are comfortable and if you are comfortable enough, the relationship will grow and grow.
3 You Can Challenge Each Other
This is really important in a relationship, do you challenge yourselves? Both of you, do you challenge each other? These are the things that you need to think about when you are going to grow old with someone – after all, years go by and you don't want the boredom to set in.
4 You Fight
It happens. My wife and I fight all of the time and to be honest, it works in our relationship. It is something that will happen and something that you will resolve if you are meant to be together.
5 You Wipe Each Other's Tears Away
With fighting sometimes comes tears. That means that you'll have to wipe each other's tears away. If you both give in, you both admit that you were wrong and you apologize and don't let pride get in the way, you'll be fine.
6 The Magic is There
Even after all of those years, the magic is still going to be there. There is a certain spark, a certain little bit of magic between them. Magic is something that all relationships have but you have to really work to keep it up.
7 You Both Know You're Worth It
This is by far the most important thing in the world to remember, you are both worth it. You are friends at the base and then you are lovers. You know each other inside and out.
Growing old with someone is rare nowadays and while it might not always be something that you think about with every relationship, once you find the one that you're supposed to be with, you'll think of it more and more. What are some of the other signs that you're going to grow old with them? Share!
