Finding a partner with whom to share a life is a wonderful—yet sometimes difficult—process. Whether it’s conducted online or in-person, the search will likely push an individual into unfamiliar settings to encounter potential partners. In order to be successful, it is often necessary to go outside one’s comfort zone.

Dating is a process by which people spend time with others in order to gradually determine whether a particular person is suitable as a potential mate. Determining whether a connection reflects temporary infatuation or true love can sometimes be challenging, but research suggests that there are revealing clues in behaviour.

One possibly counterintuitive indicator of a potential match is one’s sense of self. Someone who would make a good partner may push an individual to discover new activities or beliefs that expand their self-concept. Another early signifier may be stress: Repeatedly interacting with someone whose impression matters deeply to someone can fuel anxiety.

Other indicators include being highly motivated to see the person and investing a significant amount of time, emotion, and energy into the budding relationship.
