English term or phrase: The One
Jane and I had always had a tempestuous relationship-we'd fight like mad, then have a great time making up. It was like that for two years, then I started realising she wasn't The One.
她不是我真正所爱的人??
The One有何典故吗?

我真正所爱的人、真正适合我的人
Explanation:
I are not aware of any specific "典故". But, "That's the one!" is a common expression when you find somebody or something that you are looking for.

agree  isahuang: I would choose 真正适合我的人, the one in English just means the one he or she is looking for. I agree with Jim, don't think there is any story behind The One.

the one
Mr or Miss/Ms Right = the right one for you


Explanation:
There is a belief that there is one right person for you out there, your perfect match.If you meet this person,eventually you would know they were the (right/predestined)one.

It possibly comes from love stories or fairy tales,or a certain view of destiny...
