A good relationship is a romantic partnership, meaning that two people are able to be partners in life and the tasks and undertakings that life presents to them. They can work together on projects, share same or similar goals, complement each other in accomplishing things that need to be done and take into account their abilities.
If one of them can’t manage to do the following things, then your relationship is questionable.
1. You Care About Each Other
As they say: “One person caring about another represents life’s greatest value,” which pretty much defines a good, healthy relationship. In a good relationship there is genuine caring and concern about the other’s well being and joy in their life. You want your partner to feel good and happy as much as is realistic and possible, this is important to both partners in regards to each other.
2. By understanding the characteristics, we are better equipped to build new, healthy relationships and strengthen the ones we have. Respect. Support and Trust. Honesty and Openness. Shared Responsibility. Integrity and Compromise.
3. Treat each other with respect.
You must feel secure and comfortable in a relationship and you are not violent with each other
4. The Communication is Amazing
Both partners are able to speak freely about their feelings, thoughts and opinions, and feel incredibly supported when doing so.
You can talk about anything and everything and be listened to, hopefully understood and, when needed, comforted, it is very important to feel that your partner has your back and your best interests at heart.
This is especially true during rough patches, as well as the “good” times in a relationship. Repressing feelings will only cause conflict later on, so making sure you know how to talk to your partner is one of the most important characteristics of a good relationship.
5. You Like Each Other
“All we need is love,” but sometimes we just need to simply like someone too. It is important not only that you love your partner but that you like them as a human being. If possible it’s good to admire and respect him or her.
This brings a great energy to the connection and often solidifies the bond. This means that, even if you weren’t together, you would still think your partner is pretty awesome. They make you laugh, they make you want to be a better person, and they’re just super fun to be around because they’re that amazing.
