When you’re in a relationship, you can’t help but create your own biases. You’d think everything about your boyfriend is just so perfect and that you’re perfect for each other. Here some of the useful tips for a healthy relationship
Your life goals match
You and your boyfriend don’t have to share exactly the same goals. However, your relationship and life goals should at least match. For instance, are both of you planning to settle down in the near future? Or, is one of you not looking for a serious commitment? Does your partner support your goals as a career woman? Or, does he only want you to stay at home? If your major goals are aligned with each other, then you have nothing to worry about. You’re in the right relationship!
You have common interests
You don’t have to take an interest in all of his hobbies. However, it would make everything lighter if there are activities that you both genuinely love doing. For instance, are you both music lovers? Are you both in art? Are you both up for an adventure? Spending time together and doing the things you are passionate about will help your relationship grow.
You share the same core values
Do you share the same core values as your boyfriend? Are you both honest and open-minded? Do you share the same spiritual beliefs? As partners, you will be making major decisions; having the same core values makes it easier for you to come up with those decisions.
You respect each other’s differences
You may influence each other on other things, but you are still two individuals who may have different beliefs, preferences, and attitudes. However, it’s not about how different you are from each other; it’s all about how you respect each other. Cultivate respect for the relationship to continue to bloom.
You love each other’s quirks
Every individual is unique. Your boyfriend might have some quirks that you sometimes can’t stand. For sure, you also have your own idiosyncrasies that your boyfriend can hardly fathom. However, if you find each other’s quirks adorable and tolerable, then you’re meant to enjoy a wonderful journey together.
You allow each other to be free
Sure, there are times that you want to set some boundaries when it comes to your boyfriend’s girl best friend or his ex-girlfriend. However, you wouldn’t want him to feel that you’re being too controlling. If you still allow each other to be free while staying committed to each other, then that means you two are compatible.
You are attracted to each other
This is supposed to be a given, but some relationships fail because of a lack of intimacy. Physical contact is one important language of love. If your partner makes you feel you’re the most beautiful woman in the world and he’s crazy about you and you alone, he may be the one for you.
You fight and come up with a compromise
If you haven’t had your first major fight, then maybe you’re still at the honeymoon stage in the relationship. This doesn’t mean you need to pick a fight with him but know that it’s all right to fight. It’s all right to voice out each other’s opinions about things, so long as your end goal is to come up with a solution and a compromise.
