Here are 22 ways to tell if he really is your soulmate…
1He Trusts You
This is the guy that you never have to worry about peeking through your texts or listening in on your phone calls. He actually wants you to go out for a girl’s night and when you do, he doesn’t text you the whole night wondering what you’re up to. There is full trust here because he knows you would never do anything to hurt him and vice-versa.
2He Encourages You

3He Really Listens To What You Have to Say
Remember what’s-his-name who used to totally ignore you when you were talking? Like, seriously, he couldn’t even remember what time you were planning to meet up and you’d spend over an hour waiting on him. Well, you don’t have to worry about that with this guy. He remembers all the little things you have to say from the details of your bad day to the name of your Aunt’s cat.
4He Is Not Only Your BF But Also Your BFF
