Business Insider asked nine relationship experts for the signs to look out for when you're trying to figure out if someone is right for you.
Here's what they said: "As simple as this may seem, I call it the 'bar test' to know if you're with the right person.
With so much available choice, how are you supposed to know if someone is right for you?
When should you stop over-thinking and finally commit?
So it can seem cruel to ask yourself, if anything were wrong here, what would I select first about what might be wrong?
But when you give yourself permission to ask that question, then the intuition and the hunches can come back.
Ask yourself: Do they get along with the other people in my life? Do we have mutual interests and things that we enjoy doing together that can be a source of sustainability in a relationship?
If the answer is yes, then you may be on the right track." — Holly Daniels, a doctor who specialises anxiety, co-dependency, and relationship addiction at Sober College "One of the signs that your date is likely to make a good mate is that the he or she shows genuine interest in your life and listens attentively when you are speaking.
Couples who each truly place the needs and wants of their partners on par with or above their own seem handle a lifetime of compromising, juggling priorities, and collaborating better than couples who individually pursue their own best interests." — Laura Vander Drift, associate professor of psychology at Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences and director of the Close Relationships Lab at Syracuse University "One of the major signs that tells you if the person you're dating is right for you is how they treat you when you're sad, crying, having a bad day, or just emotional. Are they distracted when you're expressing your feelings and most of all, do they know when to just give you a hug?If the latter is true, then he/she passes the test.But if it's the former, it might be time to decide whether being in a relationship with this person is your best option." — Erika Ettin, dating coach and founder of dating site A Little Nudge "A person who can authentically be excited about your success and goals in life is someone who won't feel the need to hold you back.And you may decide that you've considered them, there are ten things you don't like that much, but there are a thousand things you love. But ask yourself that question, and give yourself permission to consider those other things.See the discussion of "dollars per mile of track" including the question of exactly where do the Sierra Nevada mountains begin and end.
