You met her, started talking, developed feelings, expressed to each other your genuine emotions, and got into relationships. Everything went well without any significant hurdles. Perhaps you feel very thankful for that. Of course, there have been fights between you two because your choice differs in some cases, but overall everything is going great.
That’s why you are thinking about taking your relationship to the next level. Maybe proposing to her to become your better half. But, before you take any step, there are a few things that you need to take into consideration.
Understand that just because you both have good compatibility doesn’t mean that the relationship is healthy and should be taken to the next level. There are several other signs that make a relationship healthy and ready for the future. Scroll down to learn what these signs are.
You can talk about anything without hesitation.
Communication is the foundation of every healthy bond. If you both can voice your thoughts and opinions without the fear of being judged, then it is an excellent thing. It will help you both understand each other better, not just the likes and dislikes. You can understand what your partner is anxious about, what they fear, or their insecurities. Believe it or not, but it will help in personal growth.
Moreover, good communication also reduces the chances of conflicts and strengthens the bond you have.
You motivate each other for trying out new things
Every person has some hidden desires which they don’t speak about. For instance: you might want to learn dance but are afraid. You need some guidance, maybe a speech from your partner that motivates you to give dancing a try. The trust and confidence of your lover will make you forget about the fear, and it might turn out to be a great decision.
Similarly, if you both are open about everything and support each other in everything, it is a great sign. If your GF wants to try sheer lingerie– support it; if your BF wants to try baking- eat what they make; if you want to do bungee jumping- say it. Motivating each other will make your connection unbreakable.
Your partner feels like a safe place.
There are times when a person might feel sad and hollow. At such times, all a person craves is some affection, warmth, and safety. So, if your partner offers you these three things and you could be your vulnerable self that needs protection, then our dear reader, you’ve found the gem. Don’t miss any opportunity to show your love to your love.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean that it is not a healthy relationship if you have conflicting views every now and then. What matters is that you both resolve those conflicts and offer each other support. Moreover, if you are happy to be with them, and make memories together, maybe you should take the next step.
To sum it all up!
All these signs are crucial parameters to decide whether your relationship is healthy or not. And if there are few things that you need to work on, you must work on those.
