How do you know when you have met the right one for you?

I think you know that you have met the right one when you are different enough that you both have different ideas and history. The key is to mix those ideas and history into your own life. i am sure if you ask your parents odds are they didnt have everything in common when they first started dating but as they got older and were together longer they became very much alike but still kept their own self

To a perfectionist and/or someone suffering from OCD, it is one of those questions that will haunt you for life :D. There is no "right" one. The longer you are together, the more you will get an idea of your "compatibility" but that still doesn't say much. I have friends who is happily married even though they are as different as night and day. No one knows how the heart works, although many speculate it's all about appearances and feremones and all of that "Survival of the fittest" mumbo-jumbo. All we know, is that when we get this overwhelming feeling about someone, there is definately something special. Don't concern your self that you might get married just to find out you "should" have been with someon else. It doesn't work that way. In fact, that is the major cause for break-ups and divorce. The person you end up sharing your life with, will not be perfect just as you are not. Everyone has flaws and little habits that irretate others and there will allways be someone that seems more "perfect". If the person satisfies what you want in terms of a life long partner and makes your heart flutter, then that person is the "right" one for you. I hope that makes sense in some way ;D.
