There’s no such thing as the “perfect relationship.” Let’s face it – everyone is human, and everyone has flaws. In all honesty, relationships can be frustrating, challenging, and downright hard. They don’t just happen overnight – they take compromise and hard work. When you come right down to it, a relationship simply is about two imperfect people willing to accept each other’s flaws. Both partners need to work through their differences to create a wholesome and lasting bond. In this article, we take a peek at 9 fundamental qualities that make up a healthy romantic relationship.
Compatible: (Adjective) Able to exist or occur together without conflict.
A lot of factors go into a successful relationship, but one of the biggest ones is compatibility. When two people are compatible, they truly enjoy each other’s company and find it easy to talk to one another.
If you have nothing in common and realize that you share almost no interests with your partner once the honeymoon phase of the relationship fades away, you don’t have much left to work with. Additionally, it is important to understand that compatibility has nothing to do with love. You must be in love with your partner, but you also must be in “like” with them. You need actually to like spending time with them. More importantly, you both need to want the relationship.
Couples that are completely in love with each other break up all the time because they simply can’t exist happily together. So, ask yourself the big questions: Am I sincerely happy with this person?
