You know those articles that often list all the reasons why the guy you're dating is "the one?" They all sound the same and list similar reasons why and you follow those because well, those articles are published in magazines and often publications.

And, to be honest, I used to follow those pieces as well and ask myself if my boyfriend had all those qualifications. If he did, then he was definitely the one because the article said so! It was naïve of me to think an article could predict my future. I was the one who believed it too until I got older and began thinking that every relationship is different, so if I my boyfriend didn't do everything on the list, it didn't matter because my boyfriend isn't the exact same as yours.

This is how you know your boyfriend is the one.

No matter what you're wearing -- whether you're dressed in PJs or in a hot outfit -- he'll look at you the exact same way. If you get sick, he'll be there to support and take care of you. He won't leave you because he knows you're worth it. He'll do everything he can to make you happy.

Even if he's not a social person, he'll step out of his shell for you because he truly loves you. He'll sacrifice himself for you. If he's exhausted and you made plans, he'll do his best to put a smile on his face. Your family can get underneath his skin, but he'll still attend nearly every celebration and get-together because he knows how important it is to you.

If your boyfriend isn't the touchy-feely type, in his own way, he'll be affectionate with you. He'll never push you away. When you're lying around watching TV, all you want to do is cuddle, so you lay on him and he'll put his arm around you because he loves when you're that close to him.

Trust me, if your boyfriend truly loves you, he'll do whatever he can to make you happy. And, at the end of the day, you want that guy around because he'll make an excellent father.
