Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

You know you’ve found the one when you finally meet someone who makes you excited to be in love and in a relationship, rather than dreading it. In the past, you’ve felt stifled, held back, and smothered by relationships. But with this person, you feel like all you want to do is shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone how in love you are, because rather than feeling like this person is pulling you back, you just feel free enough to be yourself. You finally feel like you’re with someone who wants to run with you instead of holding you in place.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

You know you’ve found the one when you’re no longer overwhelmed with feelings of insecurity or jealousy, and instead are just enjoying bringing them into your world. In the past, you’ve had issues with trust or doubt in your relationships, but this new person just makes you feel calm, secure, reassured, and happy. You’re not worried about who they’re texting or if their feelings are as strong as yours – they’ve done nothing but make you feel cherished, safe, and loved. So rather than feeling anxious or insecure, you’re just having the time of your life watching them grow close to your friends and family and weave themselves seamlessly into your life.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

You know you’ve found the one when you don’t feel the need to be ‘on’ in front of them. Your whole life up until this point has been feeling like you’re one way in front of other people and another way by yourself. You love being the energetic and lively spirit that most people know you as, but you also feel exhausted from pressuring yourself to keep your low moments, your insecurities, and your feelings of inadequacy to yourself. You know you’ve found the one when, finally, they love your human, fragile, and vulnerable side as much as they love the side of you that’s strong and social and bright.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You know you’ve found the one when you’re with someone who values family, loyalty, and relationships as much as you do. It doesn’t have to mean that they have a perfect, amazing family – it just means that you’re with someone who cares as much as you do about the feelings, wellbeing, and happiness of the people who matter most to them. You feel like they understand you better than anyone, and that you’ve finally met someone who treats you with as much compassion as you treat others.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You know you’ve found the one when you meet somebody who finally starts calling you out on your bullshit. You’re a very warm and loving person, but because you’ve also always been creative and successful, you haven’t dealt with much rejection. So when you meet someone who doesn’t let you call all the shots and makes you feel out of control for once, you know you’re in the right relationship. They’ll make you feel supported and loved and happy without ever letting you get complacent – it’s the best combination for you.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You know you’ve found the one when your relationship is finally causing you more joy and thrill than it is anxiety and stress. You’re a chronic overthinker and have always struggled in relationships with feelings of self-doubt and consistent self-criticism. So when the person comes along who helps you get out of your own head, who sees all the awesome things about you, and who makes you feel happy and like someone ‘gets’ you for once in your relationship, you know you’ve found your person.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You know you’ve found the one when you meet someone who doesn’t fall for your effortless charisma and irresistible personality for once. You’re used to getting away with things and doing whatever you want when you want, thanks to your easy charm. So when you meet someone who loves you for you but also makes you meet them halfway instead of letting you get whatever you want 24/7, you know you can never let a match of that sort and a healthy balance like that walk away.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You know you’ve found the one when you feel like your walls are being pulled down. Although you’re incredibly emotional and magnetic, you also tend to be secretive and private about a lot of your life – only letting people see what you want them to see. So when the person comes along who is not intimidated by your strength and instead dares you to show them all sides of you, you’ll love more fiercely and more happily than you ever have before.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

You know you’ve found the one when you can actually be real, complicated, and three-dimensional in front of them. You tend to lean towards the positive, happy-go-lucky attitude, and that’s wonderful – that’s not to say you’re in any way insincere or fake. But when you become known as the happy, buoyant person, the pressure evolves to remain that way for everyone, always. When the right person comes along, however, you’ll feel the freedom to finally be vulnerable, occasionally downhearted, and complex – basically, with the right person, you’ll feel the freedom to be a three-dimensional human.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

You know you’ve found the one when you no longer feel like you have to explain yourself, because they just get you. Rather than having to deal with the arbitrary dating rules and ridiculous games that you hate when it comes to love, you’re with someone who is on your wavelength – someone who’s straight to the point and cuts through the crap, someone who brings out a more optimistic side of you, and someone who understands and appreciates the subtle and humorous part of you that most people miss out on.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

You know you’ve found the one when your instinct to be aloof and unattached goes out the window because you’re so overwhelmingly fascinated by them and drawn to them. You typically keep your distance when it comes to dating because that’s where you feel most comfortable and in control, but this person is causing you to behave in a way you never have before – you’re more open, vulnerable, and unaffected with them because the conversations you’ve had and the energy you feel with them makes you more comfortable with being yourself. It’s a comfort that you haven’t felt in a long time.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

You know you’ve found the one when you meet someone who makes you feel more active, excited, and alive in your life than you ever have before. You’ve always had a big imagination and a lot of ideas about where you’ve wanted to go, but up until this point, you haven’t felt safe enough and supported enough to go after those dreams. But with this person, you feel like you’ve finally found somebody who encourages you, keeps up with you, and allows you to trust them. You finally feel like you’ve found someone who believes that you are nothing but potential and strength and capability. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
