For centuries poets and writers have tried to use words to communicate the ever-elusive concept of “true love” or having a “soulmate.” Shakespeare said, “It is the star to every wand’ring bark/Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.” Kanye West expresses his love for Kim K in “Bound 2” with the lyrics, “And hey, ayo, we made it: Thanksgivin’/So hey, maybe we can make it to Christmas.” To-may-to, to-mah-to, in our opinion.

Finding the words to explain love can be the pursuit of a lifetime, so how is someone supposed to know when they’ve found it? Often, one can only know based on the experience. Kim Kardashian recently told her fans that she knew Kanye was her soulmate when he had the heat on, perfectly satisfying her affinity for “hot rooms.” When you know, you know!

It’s about the little moments like these:

1That moment you realize you’re both stuck in the 90s


2The moments of total and complete honesty


3You nerd out to the same extreme level


4The emotions are INTENSE


5Nothing will stop him from showing he loves you


6Skittles: taste the love


7When you STILL get those first-date butterflies


8Being reminded of what it’s like to be a kid


9The third person in the relationship is french fried

10 Even when they’re sleeping, they still love you


11You know how to solve problems as a team


Yeah, we’re gonna go ahead and say all of these couples are serious GOALS.
