15 Signs You're In A Good Relationship

By Editorial Staff in Life Style On 4th October 2015

#1 You're Honest With Each Other

If you're having one of those days, you let your significant other know that you are. And if you don't realize that you are, they'll let you know. Good relationships will always have bumps in the road, but it's the way you empathize with a person after they are honest with you. Rather than escalate the argument, you figure out how to make the situation better. Remember, everyday is a new day!

#2 You Motivate One Another

Friendly competition is healthy and motivational. If you and your significant other strive to be the best you can possibly be, not only for yourself, but as an example for your partner, you're on the right track.

#3 You Don't Stress Over The Little Things

Little things are nothing in the big picture and scheme of things. Still, it is nice to be remembered and thought of on those special occasions, or anytime the spark hits.

#4 You Give Each Other Personal Space

A relationship can be easily ruined by lack of personal space. Good significant others respect each others space, hobbies, and passions, and therefore give their loved ones time and space for oneself.

#5 You Communicate Throughout The Day

A good partner does not try to distract another away from work, school, or any other daily obligations. On the other hand, they do not live by the motto "Out of sight, out of mind". Something as simple as a "how is your day going" text exemplifies a communicative, but not distractive, relationship.

#6 You Set Goals Together

A relationship grows stronger through victories, big or small. Setting goals together helps you and your significant other learn how to function as a unit, by working towards a common end result. A big glass of victory is always better when you have someone to share it with!

#7 You Don't Obsess Over Milestones

Special days are nice, as we mentioned before, but... If you focus too much time and energy on certain milestones such as first dates and first kisses, you completely miss out on the experience of the actual relationship. A good relationship enjoys the company of one another and lives the experience in real time, day by day.

#8 You're Willing To Accept The Past

Contrary to popular belief, just because you knew that the two of you were "meant to be, all along" doesn't mean they actually knew you, before they met you. Good relationships do not dwell on the past rather move forward and make memories of their own.

#9 You Travel Together

A relationship grows stronger through victories, big or small. Setting goals together helps you and your significant other learn how to function as a unit, by working towards a common end result. A big glass of victory is always better when you have someone to share it with!

#10 You Do Things Friends Do

The only way to create experiences, is to actually do things. So you might as well do things that you like doing. Lovers can be lovers, but partners need to also be friends.

#11 You Talk About The Future

A characteristic of a good relationship is talking about the future. By talking about the future inclusively, you're letting your partner know, you have every intention on them being in your life plans. Not only is it reassuring, but it's necessary if you want to have any future with your partner.

#12 You Work Together To Build Something Strong

It takes patience, time, and understanding. If you have these qualities then you're halfway there to a great long lasting relationship!

#13 You Are Together

Healthy relationships improve your quality of life. Are you growing? Are you wiser? Are you more mature? Have you modified your behaviors into a more positive manner? Has your attitude and overall outlook on your life and goals improved? If you are saying yes to these questions, you are in a healthy relationship.

#14 You Don't Need To Be Attached At The Hip

Trusting habits are demonstrated in healthy relationships. That means you are not going through her phone, checking his email, having to be by his side everywhere he goes in order to keep an eye on what he's doing. Instead, you are able to freely allow him/her to do whatever he/she wants to do. In return, your time is spent doing what you want to do. And if/when those two wants cross (i.e. you want to spend time with him and he wants to spend time with you)you'll be together...and that's the bonus. You often hear yourself thinking or saying, "I trust your decision making."

#15 Looking Out For One Another

When both parties look out for one another, the results are profound, primarily because it creates a basis of trust that is the relationship's bedrock. When you know someone has your back, it gives you tremendous security and frees you from chronic thoughts of doubt and uncertainty that can otherwise plague relationships. This strong sense of trust and dedication to your partner's well-being is the greatest gift we can give to our partners.
