7 foolproof tests that will reveal if he's your TRUE LOVE

Is he your one and only? Give these 7 tests a go.
  • Are you wondering if he's truly your one and only? You might love him, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's your ONE true love.

  • Luckily, there are some great ways to find out how compatible the two of you are. Find out with these seven foolproof tests:

  • 1. The road trip test

  • You can discover a lot about how well two people get along by throwing them in a small space for hours at a time. If he's your true love, a road trip should be fun. If it's mostly awkward silence, or if you snap at each other from the boredom, it's not a good sign.

  • On this road trip, you can also find out if he's more of a straightforward let's-just-get-there-ASAP sort of a guy or a stop-and-smell-the-roses man - important information for your life together.

  • 2. The furniture building challenge

  • Buy a new desk or bookshelf from Ikea and ask him to help you put it together. This will reveal whether he loses his temper easily (let's be honest, those piles of boards and screws can get pretty frustrating). It'll also test whether the two of you are good at working together.

  • 3. The ballroom test

  • Ask him to do something you like a lot and he's not crazy about, like going out ballroom dancing or watching your favorite movie marathon. Of course, don't constantly force the poor boy to do things he doesn't like, but he should be willing to occasionally take part in the things that are meaningful to you, even if he's not into them.

  • 4. The wedding invite test

  • Invite him to something far in the future, like you cousin's wedding next year or a concert months from now. Is he completely cool with it, a little hesitant or straight up resistant? His reaction will tell you how committed he is to you and whether he expects the relationship to last that long.

  • 5. The waiter test

  • You can tell a lot about a person by the way they treat their server at a restaurant. In this specific case, you're testing your date's kindness. Of course, there are a few cases where you truly aren't getting good customer service, but a cold plate of pasta still shouldn't justify shouting at somebody. When it comes down to it, a person who is nice to you but unnecessarily rude to the waiter is not a nice person.

  • 6. The stomach flu test

  • The next time you get sick with a cold or a stomach flu, don't be afraid to ask him to come over and help you out. (He might even offer to run over without you asking!) He should feel comfortable seeing you at your worst. Is he cute and thoughtful, bringing chicken soup and holding your hair while you puke? This test will reveal if he can take care of you when you need it.

  • 7. The love test

  • This one is simple - just ask him, "Why do you love me?" Hopefully he can communicate to you several heart-warming reasons he adores you. Answers like, "you're just really pretty," don't exactly pass the test. With this test, you can discover what he actually means when he says "I love you."

  • Whether you're testing him for kindness, commitment or patience, remember you should display those things as well. By really paying attention to how compatible the two of you are, and you'll find out if he's truly the one.
