11 Things Your Partner Should Never Hesitate To Do For You, If They’re “The One”

Andrew Zaeh for Bustle

There's no such thing as a completely perfect relationship, even if your partner is "The One." But if you think you've found your soulmate, you might notice that they never hesitate to do their part to make the relationship better. This might include finding quick resolutions to arguments, offering encouragement when you're down, respecting your boundaries — all of which they do with the aim of helping you out and creating a healthier connection.

That's not to say these things will necessarily come naturally. But they won't be something you'll have to continually fight for in your relationship, either. "Your partner may be 'The One' but they aren't a mind-reader," relationship coach Christie Tcharkhoutian MA, MFT, tells Bustle. You'll still have to communicate with each other to figure out what your idea of a healthy relationship might look like, and then make a few adjustments as necessary.

And there's nothing wrong with that. "If your partner has the potential to be a long-term partner for you, these things will get easier over time and be simpler to produce as they become habitual," Dr. Adi Jaffe, PhD, a mental health expert and relationship counselor, tells Bustle. "All relationships take work, but with constant attention and improvement, this moves from effortful work to automatic relationship building." Here are a few things a soulmate partner will be more than happy to do, all in the name of a healthy relationship, according to experts.
