When you are trying to determine if the relationship that you are in is the right one for you, there is so much that you have to take into consideration. Is there chemistry between you and your partner, do you have similar values, do you want the same things in life?
Sometimes we think that we are in the right relationship simply because we are comfortable. It is that comfort that we are afraid of ruining that we tend to stay in that relationship where we may not be feeling the most fulfilled.
We’ve got seven signs that you should be looking for that will give you a clear indication that you are, in fact, in the right relationship for you.
1. You spend a lot of time together.
Naturally, when you are in a relationship you’re going to want to spend time together; however, when you are in the right relationship, you look forward to it and you offer to take turns doing what the other person enjoys doing. It’s a perfect compromise between both of your hobbies.
2. You can do things without him.
While you love your man, you understand that he will want to do some things on his own, and so will you. We all need a bit of “me” time and if you can do this then you know it’s a good relationship.
3. You don’t have to change who you are.
Simply because you are with someone it doesn’t mean that you have to change who you are. In fact, your partner should love you just for being who you are. That also means that you should be willing to accept them for who they are as well.
4. You can disagree without worrying about your relationship.
Every relationship will have their ups and downs, and as a result, you’re going to have your arguments. The thing that really solidifies your relationship legitimacy is being able to come out of the argument stronger and able to see things from their perspective.
5. You aren’t fighting to win an argument.
When you do fight with one another, you should never make it about winning the argument and making the other person feel degraded. You shouldn’t even try to make them concede and just say something to make you happy.
6. You stay attracted to one another.
There is a common problem people in a long-term relationship often have and that is not feeling attracted to them anymore. Couples in the right relationship will always find their partner attractive — sometimes that attraction continues to grow as the years press on.
7. You work together.
No matter where you are, at home or out in public, you work to make each other look good and feel good as well. You can work together in all aspects of your life — when you go grocery shopping, split the list and cut the shopping time in half. When you are having game night with friends, make a game plan so that you win. The right relationship will help you grow as a person and as a couple because you are working for the same goal, whatever that may be.
