10 Signs This Relationship Is For Real

4. You feel heard. When your person is with you, they’re paying attention to you, not their phone. You never feel like they’re nodding their head without actually listening to what you’re saying. When you tell stories, they’re engaged. When you give them details about yourself, they remember.

5. You feel safe. You know your person would do anything to protect you. If anyone disrespected you in front of them, then they would have your back. They always do everything within their power to make you feel safe, emotionally and physically.

6. You feel understood. When you’re with your person, you feel like they get you. They don’t make fun of you for your favorite bands, books, or movies. They don’t make you feel awkward or insecure. They make you feel good about yourself.
