“Because he can tahan my attitude” – M’sians Share How They Know Their Partners Are THE ONE
Valentine’s Day is a fun way to show some extra love to our loved ones by going on special dates, dining at places you wouldn’t normally go to and buying them gifts. However, this can be quite financially burdensome to some people, which can put strain on their relationships.
So, let’s remind ourselves of the important things that make a happy and lasting relationship. We asked twelve Malaysians, some of whom are married and some not, how they know that their partners are THE ONE for them.
1. “I feel comfortable, safe and secure in our relationship”
Status: Been in a relationship for almost a year
Like many of us, Clary often finds herself feeling insecure in her romantic relationships even though she’s outwardly confident. However, with her current boyfriend she’s never felt insecure and that’s how she knows he’s the one.
“I can just be myself and he’ll love me no matter how I look or behave. He always gives me little compliments and tells me he loves me every day. That’s why I don’t feel insecure anymore.”
Clary also loves how her boyfriend takes care of her the way a father would take care of his daughter (in the best way possible!). This concept can be summed up by the Mandarin internet buzzword, “爹系男友”, which refers to a boyfriend who’s mature, stable and reliable.
2. “He rescued a stray cat in the rain”
Status: Been in a relationship for five years
For Lisa, what a man does or doesn’t do says a lot about him. So, it took her only one incident for her to be sure that he’s the one.
“I knew he was the one when he stopped in the rain to rescue a stray cat!”
3. “She’d ALWAYS be there for me when I need her”
Status: Dated for 8 years and have been married for a little over a year
Amirul and his wife had been through a lot of challenges in their eight years of dating before finally tying the knot last year.
Of all eight years they were together, five was spent doing long distance where Amirul was in KL and his then-girlfriend in Kedah. So the process of getting to know each other over the phone (without unlimited calls plans!) was quite lengthy lah, a bit like a slow burn romance.
However, his girlfriend never left, even when Amirul was at his worst. “She’d ALWAYS be there for me when I need her. I still remember how both of us walked 10km and took public transport just to pass our CV to companies.” And that’s how Amirul knew his wife was the one.
4. “When he said he’s into cleaning”
Status: Married for almost two years
Similar to Clary, Suzanna knew that her beau was a keeper when she didn’t feel insecure about herself, and my appearance. “I don’t feel the need to dress-to-impress him, only if I want to,” she said.
Of course, bonus points to him when he also said that “he’s into cleaning and can ‘tebar” roti canai, which he actually made from scratch!”
5. “He keeps me grounded”
Status: Married, been together since 1996
