How do you know if the person you’re with is “The One?” A woman on TikTok claims it all comes down to three questions that will help you determine if your partner is the right person for you. In a video, Courtney Empey explains that she’s currently going through a breakup and when her ex wanted to give their relationship another chance, she wasn’t sure if they should get back together.
The 27-year-old from Toronto shares that when she was at a doctor’s appointment she was telling her nurse about her romantic predicament and the nurse offered some advice. She told Courtney to ask herself three questions to help make her decision:
- “If this person was your child, would you be happy?”
- “If this person was dating your child, how would you feel?”
- And the last one was: “If this person was going to be the father of your children, how would you feel?”
Courtney says these questions take the emotion out of the decision so you can look at whether the “person actually fits your standards.” And it worked for her. After answering these questions, she realized the qualities she wants in a partner and that her ex has them, so she decided to give their relationship another shot. “I think it's important that once you've worked out if they meet your standards, then you bring your feelings back into it,” she explains. “Because they could perfectly meet your standards but if you don't love them then he's not the right guy for you.”
