Let’s be honest, there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. There are only happy relationships made of people who want to work things out and stay together no matter what. How the partners deal with their differences and difficulties will define the future of the relationship. Here are 9 signs your relationship is headed in the right direction and will last a long time!
The two of you are so comfortable with each other that you can totally talk about anything and everything under the sky. There is no judgement and no filter between the two of you. He is also the first person you want to call and tell everything about your day, good or bad!
Usually, it is easy for one partner to be overpowered by the personality of the second one. However, in a healthy relationship, both partners are able to maintain their individual identities. Just because you two may have differences in your likes and dislikes, does not mean you have to change them!
You aren’t scared of bad days. The two of you know that all relationships involve a little bit of fighting and in fact, it’s healthy to fight a little once in awhile. You two don’t hold grudges against each other and once a fight is done, it’s done!
You know that mutual respect and trust are the foundation on which any successful relationship is built. Partners need to respect each other and their choices for the relationship to stand the test of time. They also need to have a great level of faith in each other, without which two people cannot stay together for long!
A relationship is not just about sex. It’s about having fun with each other and enjoying each other’s company. If you two are each other’s best friend and can talk about anything, you are in it for the long haul!
Sex, for you two, is not just a physical act you engage in. It means more to you and is a way to emotionally connect with each other. That’s how you two know that what you have is real and meant to last!
It is a major sign of your relationship going in the right direction if you two treat each other’s dreams as your own. You support all their ambitions and goals and are the biggest cheerleader they can have. Also, you aren’t afraid to kick them into action if you feel they’ve become lazy or lost sight of what they want.
If you don’t feel safe with your partner, you aren’t in a relationship that will last. Your partner needs to ensure that you don’t have any insecurities and they take all your concerns seriously and try to work through them. If it’s not happening, you need to take a careful look at your bond with him.
He is the person you lean on for support. You want to run to him for comfort on days that have been hard and celebrate days with him that have been amazing. And no matter what, he’s there for you as your rock and you know you can fall back on him anytime.
