Unmistakable Signs That You Are In Love With The Right Someone

tumblr_m9rfxqBr3H1qdlkyg.gif  You miss them no matter how long it’s been. Even if it’s a week or a day, you miss hearing them laugh and seeing their face.

tumblr_m9rfxx2OnT1qdlkyg.gif You love their flaws. Their imperfections are what makes them perfect for you. Without their flaws and scars, they wouldn’t be the same person that you know and love.

tumblr_m9rfyfaI6H1qdlkyg.gif You would move to a different city or country to be with them. No matter what, you know you would move across the world to be with them. No questions asked.

 tumblr_m9rfylWYhs1qdlkyg.gif Their ugly laugh is your favorite sound. Before, you hated loud and obnoxious laughs. But their laugh? It sounds like a choir to you.

   tumblr_m9rfy3Vbpw1qdlkyg.gif You feel lighter and more at ease in their presence. Whenever you are in your significant other’s presence, you feel comfortable. You feel at home. And that’s all anyone could ask for.

  tumblr_m9rfyuLXcP1qdlkyg.gif They are the first person you call with good news and bad news. No matter the kind of news you need to share, they are the first person that you tell. It has become almost second nature for you to let them know what is happening and vice versa.  

 tumblr_m9rfyxACrj1qdlkyg.gif You both make sacrifices for one another without expecting anything in return. When ever you give a a lot to this person or make a certain sacrifice, you don’t and wouldn’t ever expect them to do the same or give you something to call it ‘even’. You would do anything to make them feel loved.

tumblr_m9rfzwvvUI1qdlkyg.gif When your significant other is upset or sad, you feel that way too. To see them hurt, hurts you immensely and it tears you apart inside to see them in so much pain.

tumblr_m9rg06HAB21qdlkyg.gif You can’t stay mad at them for long. You have arguments, sure. But, you never stay angry at this person for too long because they never fail to do something to make you laugh or smile shortly after. They know how to push your buttons, but they also know how to make you happy.

tumblr_m9rg0aunWm1qdlkyg.gif When you picture your future in your head, you see them standing next to you. Whenever anyone asks you if you see yourself with this person in the next five years or the next fifty years, you always say yes. There isn’t a single doubt in your mind.

tumblr_m9rfu8xpHe1qdlkyg.gif You support one another’s goals and dreams. You never tear each other’s goals apart and constantly encourage one another to keep trying and to never give up.

tumblr_m9rfqzMMVk1qdlkyg.gif Even if you are suffering or in deep pain, knowing you have this person, keeps you smiling. No matter the circumstance, you know in your heart you will always have this person. Even that little bit of hope lights up your world in a way no one else could.

tumblr_m9rfv6PBE01qdlkyg.gif They aren’t perfect and your relationship isn’t either. But they are your kind of perfect. You know you are whole on your own. You know you can live without them. But you don’t want to live without them. And you don’t want to be on your own. Because this person is the best thing to have ever happened to you.


Ways To Avoid The Trap Of Dating A Narcissist


emoticon08 In initial conversations make sure you ask them as many questions as they ask you.

Wait for an answer. If they say that they like something, ask a more specific question.

Why This Is Important

Narcissists actually probe you for information so that they can learn as much about you as possible. By asking them questions, you force them to tell you about themselves. This slows down the process of them collecting data and allows you an opportunity to determine if they are lying.

For example, you say, “I love dancing the Macarena” They reply, “I do too!” You can ask, “Where do you usually go dancing?” This next direct question forces them to be more specific. The first set of lies is very simple, but the more detailed the questions the more likely you will catch them in a lie. Also, it can put them off balance and make them less attracted to you.

It is important in any relationship that there be reciprocity, so asking someone about themselves as much as they ask you, is a good thing.

emoticon08  Never reveal personal or private information early.

The rule of thumb is that if you wouldn’t tell everyone at work, it is not something to share in the first couple of weeks of a relationship.

Why This Is Important

Sharing personal information has two effects. The first is that it gives you a sense of intimacy with this person. Exchanging private information is one of the ways that we get close to someone. Narcissists use this method to get close fast. Getting really close to someone before you know them is never a good thing. The second problem is that sensitive material can be used against you and if the person turns out to be a narcissist you will regret sharing things that you did not want everyone to know.

Realize we all crave intimacy.

There is a strong urge to reveal things to the same level as someone else.

It is good to base any relationship on trust and intimacy and these things take time. There will be time in the future to share these details if this is the right person.

emoticon08 Don’t fight for the relationship right at the beginning.

If someone that you are just starting to date tells you that their friends or family would not approve of your relationship or if they let you know that they are leaving town or that they are worried about you breaking up with them right away it is a warning sign. They are looking for assurances, way before it is reasonable, for you to say that you would not leave. If for any reason, the relationship seems to have opposition or an expiry date, see it as a red flag. Statements like, “This is just a summer fling” are a warning sign.

Why This Is Important

Think of dating a narcissist as a job interview. They want someone that will be there for the long haul. They want to know that you will go the extra mile to make the relationship work. All of these things are desirable in a good, long-term relationship, but they show you are desperate in the short term. Narcissists are attracted to someone that is too desperate to easily leave any relationship, even a bad one.

If their friends or family wouldn’t approve, why would you want to be with someone when you would be an outcast or disliked? If the person you just started dating may have to leave town for a job or to go back to school, recognize that it is too early to make that kind of commitment and don’t. These situations can also be a ploy. If you move to another town with them early in the relationship they have you trapped because you are relying on them for everything and none of your friends or family are around.

If early on you get the impression that there might be opposition to your relationship or an expiry date you are being pressured to make a commitment prematurely.

emoticon08 Maintain your private time.

If you are being flooded with attention it may initially feel like you are loved. This is not the case. A narcissist will flood you with attention as a way of controlling you. You get used to this level of attention and then you expect it, long after it is taken away. Try to not respond to the multiple texts, messages and calls. Don’t respond until it is convenient. Constantly interrupting your time with other people is one of the ways that narcissists distance you from your friends.

Why This Is Important

Narcissists need constant nourishment from others. They are trying to figure out if you are the one that is going to give it to them. By not giving it to them, you are less likely to be pursued.

A person that actually loves you, respects your right to privacy, time with your friends and your need to have time to yourself.

emoticon08  Keep seeing your friends, doing your hobbies and pursuing your interests.

If your new dating partner insists on seeing you every minute, it as a sign of pathology not adoration. The beginning of a relationship is too early to be spending most of your time with someone.

It is one thing to say, “I’m going to the movies with friends.” But if someone you have just started dating digs for more detail: which friends, which theatre, which movie, are you going out afterwards? It is best to not give it. “Hiding” information from a narcissist will drive them crazy and they will not want to date you.

Why This Is Important

The ultimate goal of a narcissist is to have you all to themselves. This is part of the control that they have over their partners because the narcissist manages to eliminate everyone else from your life as much as possible. Having only one person in your life makes you very dependent on this person.

Realize you may want to be “good” and not realize that you are wired to “obey” when someone asks you to do something.

In a healthy relationship your partner will want you to be happy and having friends, hobbies and interests is a large part of that.

emoticon08 Maintain your private space.

Agreeing to have someone move in right away, or suddenly noticing that one “sleep over” has resulted in the person never leaving is a major red flag. You should make other plans and tell them that you want to go out with your friends and that they can’t stay at your place.

Why This Is Important

This is just one element of how a narcissist moves in and takes control of your life. Suddenly, you will realize that they are living at your place full time. The longer they are there before you stand your ground the more difficult it becomes to maintain your space. Having someone move in right away does not allow time for you to balance this new relationship with the other priorities in your life.

Realize you are fighting biology here.

We instinctively want others around. It feels good to have company.

Quality relationships are not based on spending as much time together as quickly as possible. They are based on mutual respect for each other’s lives and priorities.

emoticon08 Resist the urge to “take care of someone” you just met.

If someone tells you early in a relationship that they have come upon bad times at work, in health, a tragedy, ask yourself why you want to take care of them and why there is no one else in their lives to fulfill this role.

Why This Is Important

This is one of the tactics that narcissists use to get close to you. Examples are, “I’ve just lost my job and have no money”. “I was living with my last lover and I ended it, so I have no place to live”. “I just moved into town and have been living on a friend’s sofa but I’ve outstayed my welcome”. If they say that they just got out of a bad relationship with an awful person, insist that you don’t want to be their rebound person and move away quickly.

Realize that you are fighting instincts here.

We all want to pick up the fallen bird and nurse it back to health.

Healthy relationships are between two self-sufficient individuals. If this person cannot support themselves now, they are unlikely to take care of their half of the responsibility in a relationship.

emoticon08 We all like to dream and plan, but the beginning of a relationship is a bad time to be planning to be together forever.

Try the phrase, “I think we are getting ahead of ourselves”. This allows you to be honest and can be used like this: “Yes, I would love to move to New York City with you and pursue my comedy career, but I think we are getting ahead of ourselves.”

Why This Is Important

One of the tactics narcissists use to keep you from leaving is to point out that you “agreed” to this relationship and wanted this relationship from the beginning. Now you are a “quitter” or “selfish” or “mean” if you are just abandoning this dream. Often, the dream was premature.

It is good to have dreams and long term plans together but these should be based on a solid relationship, not an elusive goal that is agreed upon before all of the facts are in.

emoticon08 Pay attention to how your date treats others.

Ask yourself if you want to be treated that way.

Why This Is Important

Narcissists often think that they are justified belittling those around them. They think that they are superior and therefore they can treat others badly. In any relationship, how your partner treats others can be how they will treat you — eventually.

A nice person has respect for others and respect for you and treats people accordingly.

emoticon08  Focus on reciprocity.

If they compliment you, compliment them back. If they ask about you, ask about them. If they do something for you, do it for them.

Why This Is Important

Ideally, we all want good relationships. Keeping things in balance is a good starting point for a relationship based on mutual support. By treating them exactly how they treat you, you will become aware of whether or not it “feels normal.” For instance, if they buy you several gifts and it feels abnormal to buy someone you just met that many gifts, you realize that this is a red flag. This method helps you see past the joy you felt in receiving the gifts and puts them in context. If you feel like you are being disingenuous complimenting them repeatedly, realize that their level of compliments may be abnormal and this is certainly a red flag.

It is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of a new relationship and suddenly realize that your whole world has changed. With a narcissist it is important to be very aware at the beginning and not let this happen.

This is kinda a good news, bad news type of post.

The good news is that this information will help you side step a relationship with a narcissist, someone that can wreak havoc on your life for decades.

The bad news is that your next new relationship might not work out.

Keep in mind you don’t always want relationships to “work out”; some of them can be bad for you.



Things You Should Never Do On Dating Sites If You’re Searching For Something Real



1. Don’t be cliche. If your list of interests include drinking coffee, watching Netflix, and eating pizza, then you’re just like every other girl on the site. Set yourself apart by mentioning something unique.

2. Don’t act like you’re okay with a casual relationship. Unless you want to be used for sex, then tell your matches what you’re looking for from the get-go. There are two types of people on dating sites. The type that want sex and the type that want love. Being honest will push the wrong people away and draw the right ones in.

3. Don’t accidentally end the conversation by saying “lol” or using a GIF that he has no clue how to respond to. If the conversation is dying, come up with a new topic.

4. Don’t talk dirty. I don’t care how well you’re hitting it off. You can flirt and exchange dirty jokes all you want, but there’s no reason to sext before meeting him in person. If you do, he’ll assume you’re game for a hookup.

5. Don’t hesitate to start the conversation. If they matched with you, then they want to talk to you. There’s nothing to worry about. So start typing.

6. Don’t start off with a boring conversation. Don’t ask him what he does for a living or how his day was. Ask him about a show he mentioned in his bio or the dog in his photo. Talk about something that won’t bore you both to tears before you even get to know each other.

7. Don’t agree to meet him at his apartment. If he wants to hang out alone, he only wants sex. Besides, you don’t know if you’re getting catfished yet, so it’s safer to meet in a public place.

8. Don’t continue talking over the app. Once you find someone you really click with, give him your number. That way, you won’t have to log onto Tinder or Bumble or OkCupid to have a conversation with him.

9. Don’t feel bad for ending a conversation. A super “sweet” guy might try to guilt trip you when you stop responding to him, but you don’t owe him anything. If you don’t like him, you don’t have to respond to him. He’ll get over it.

10. Don’t try to come across as cooler than you actually are. Don’t use the only photo you have from the gym as your profile picture if you hate hiking and biking and moving from the couch. You don’t want to attract the wrong type of guy.

11. Don’t judge other people based off of their photos alone. Their bio exists for a reason, and it matters way more than their pictures do. I know it’s easy to be shallow over social media, but don’t you value personality over appearance?

12. Don’t swipe right on every profile you see. It’ll be a confidence boost when you match with thirty people per day, but it isn’t going to get you anywhere. You’re not looking for a million strangers to validate you. You’re looking for one person you can truly connect with, so swipe sparingly.

Hi Ojusvee,

What's your relationship like? What's the problem? Why do you think he doesn't trust you? How long have you been together? 

Give us some background and we'll hit you up with some advice :)

Love and Friendships are very important part of life. After an ongoing separation, I wound up thinking about why it is that a companionship appears to require such a great deal less 'work', and cause less tension, than an adoration organization; and whether the best sort of relationship would really be a sort of submitted 'companions with advantages' which could offer the best of both. I've reasoned that in actuality there are principal contrasts between the two, which it's great to be clear about, to get the best out of each and evade any false impressions.

I think everyday I found new lesson about love and relationship. I learned about it everyday.

for almost the whole of my life I believed that love is a loyalty. but then I learned that loyalty can be broke. Specially if love wounds you too deep and you find it was so hard to fix your broken heart. not only your heart but also your physics was being hurt. Then you someday realized no.. this is not love.. it should not be like this. love doesn't hurt your heart and your physics. 

and one day accidentally you met another kind of love. a love that also helps you to see things and views that you have never seen before. it soften your thoughts. 

and then you learned again that love doesn't always mean to be owned. you can keep it in your heart and memories. 

and suddenly Christmas taught you that love can also means giving a room for forgiveness, because it's the sign of God's love to you. then you start to allowing yourself to forgive the love that wounds you. even tough you're still scared and afraid because things that can hurt you once it can hurt you again. but somehow you are still hoping that in forgiving miracle will happened. perhaps miracle can protect and healed you. 

and yeah.. your faith about loving means forgiving and forgiving will bring miracle, suddenly happened!

and finally you found that the miracle is growing inside of you to teach you again another meaning of love :heart:

I am so thankful that in my journey in this world I can found and learned of so many lessons about love. it breaks me to the bone was, but it also leads me in this life and journey.
