    It's just a feeling. When you look at this person you can envisage your whole future with them and are happy with it. Everything between you just fits together well.

    or if you're cynical, anybody can be the one - it's just the person you can tolerate the most and wouldn't object to a long-term future with.

    They are riding the waves of dopamine-induced euphoria. How many of these people end up actually staying with the one the declare to be 'the one'? I know I've declared more than one 'ones'.
    Relationships are friction and compromise and soul searching. In the end you settle with the least worst person who just about ticks most of your boxes.

    I realised my partner was the one for me when I realised he was as much of a crazy cat person as I an

    But in all seriousness, it's a feeling I've only felt once while with someone and it came after years of knowing him and being together and him helping me through the good and bad times and making me happier than anyone else ever did. I do believe there can be multiple people out there who you could feel so strongly for and have a great relationship but there will always be one that top trumps the rest.

    Usually when people who use this term love somebody a hell of a lot and have been with them a while they then end up calling that person "the one" so um... that, I guess.

    You decide they are the one.


    That what happens when you get married. A vow is a decision to make them the one.

    Older than 25, together 5 years, 2 of which living together and still fancy the pants off her and feel enthusiastic about the relationship, is a reasonable sign.
