When you and your partner first start dating, you probably both go out of your way to do little things for the other. But sometimes, some of those cute, sweet, affectionate gestures can fade away a bit as the relationship progresses and you get bogged down with everyday responsibilities and the like. That doesn't necessarily mean that your relationship isn't going to last, however. Still, if your partner doesn't do these little things for you, they aren't the one, which is important to take note of when determining if your relationship might be long-lasting or, ultimately, more short-lived.
Sometimes, the little things that you and your partner should do for one another are more significant than the sweet gestures that might have been more common in the early, so-called "honeymoon phase" of your relationship. Things like encouraging you to join them when they're spending time with their closest friends or family members, thinking about your schedule when they're making plans (whether you're invited to the event or not), and keeping private, vulnerable things you tell them to themselves go beyond bringing flowers or making you dinner. Knowing which sorts of things are things that the person who is your soulmate would do for you that someone who isn't the one for you wouldn't can help you reflect on your own relationship in a different way and help you figure out if the two of you really might be soulmates or not.
