The simple answer is; you’ll just know…and your mate will know. This is not something that you will necessarily know or feel on the first couple of dates. You will just sense that there is something different about the person you are with. Here are a few characteristics that are common to soul mate or extraordinary relationships.
- The two or you will find yourselves smiling for no particular reason when you think of the other.
- You both look forward to your next conversation.
- You both find yourselves paying more attention to details and conversations.
- You both find yourselves wanting to spend more time with each other than anyone else.
- You will participate in events or do things you never imagined just because it makes your significant other happy.
- You discover (usually by accident) that you have common likes and dislikes.
- You share core values.
- You find yourselves developing an emotional connection rather quickly.
- You share common spiritual beliefs and values.
These are just some of the things you may recognize. There will be other things that my be more specific to your relationship.
In the beginning your relationship will be very exciting. You will probably have long conversations and not know where the time went. You may even have long periods of silence where you just enjoy being in the same room together yet not speak a word. You will feel butterflies in your stomach when you are about to see each other again. There is a certain giddiness or excitement when you are together. This is all part of infatuation.
As the infatuation wears off, you will start to discover other aspects of your mate. You may discover that they have some habits or traits that you are not crazy about, but you are willing to compromise or make adjustments for these traits. You discover that you have a love for each other that you have never experienced before.
There will be a give and take in your relationship. Your focus will be on making decisions that are best for the relationship and not specifically what is best for either one of you. You will discover that your lover is also your best friend. Most of the time when one of you is emotionally down, the other will be there to lift you up and be supportive. When life gets tough, the two of you will be able to talk about things, work things our and move forward.
This is just a simple description of some of the characteristics of an extraordinary relationship. The feelings and emotions are almost beyond description. The feelings of love and connection you have with each other along with the happiness and contentment you both feel literally transcends words. When you have this in your relationship, you have an extraordinary relationship. Settle for nothing less.
