Following up on the “5 Types of Relationships You’ll Experience before The One” parts 1 and 2, it’s only fitting to have, what I have deemed, the “5 Ways To Tell If This is The One” series.
1. You share the same values. You know you both want kids and expect to split the duties equally. Or maybe you know you both don’t want kids and are A-OK. Or you both enjoy a good Sunday shout or even a good Sunday sleep-in. Whatever it is, you know you’re on the same page with things that matter most to you because you’ve discussed them.
2. You brag about each other. When you’re with your girls, kee-keeing about your man’s latest promotion at work, or at the barber shop grinning about your girl just finishing writing a book, you just can’t resist telling folk about your boo. Even though your friends might be rolling their eyes and sucking their teeth in their heads, both you and boo know you have each others’ backs.
3.You don’t try to change each other. He knows you can’t bake to save your life and she knows you will always pick your teeth with a straw from the broom. And all of that is all right to the two of you.
4. You don’t like having a roommate and love having your own space, but you’d still prefer to live with each other. You look forward to the end of the day, not because you’ll be done with work but because you’ll get to see your baby again.
5. You are each other’s go-to person whenever you have a story to share, about work, about friends, about anything. You used to tell your parents and friends about all these things, but now you don’t call them quite as much as you used to. They don’t mind because they see how happy you are.
So what do you think? Is the boo five out of five? Check in next week for “5 Ways To Tell If This is The One” part 2!
