1. YOU’RE ABLE TO SPEAK YOUR MIND
Healthy relationships are all about communication, and you know you’re in a great one when you’re able to speak your mind. You won’t have to feel afraid of upsetting your partner by staking your opinions and speaking the truth. And, your partner feels the same way. After all, communication in a relationship is a two-way street, and a happy, healthy relationship means you’ll both feel free to say what’s on your mind.
2. YOU HAVE SPACE TO YOURSELF
Even if you’re so in love you miss each other all the time, you still have the space to be yourself and do what you want to do without your partner hovering over your shoulder 24/7.
3. YOU LIKE THE RELATIONSHIP AS IS
The sign of an unhappy relationship is discontent and hoping that it will eventually change and work itself out. When you’re in a healthy and happy relationship, you like it just the way it is. There’s no waiting on your end or your partner’s end for something to work out.
4. YOU MAKE DECISIONS TOGETHER
In a happy relationship, you and your partner make decisions together. This means that you’re not left surprised when your partner makes all of the big decisions for the both of you – where to live, what to do with the house, or anything else like that. You and your partner are making decisions, both big and small, as a unit, and keeping one another informed of your thoughts and opinions.
5. THE RELATIONSHIP IS BALANCED
Unbalanced relationships can cause a lot of stress and strain on one partner or the other. A relationship that has one partner doing all of the household chores while the other makes all of the money can be unsettling for one reason or another. Relationships become happier and healthier when there is balance. Sometimes this means giving up and compromising together.
6. YOU TRUST ONE ANOTHER
Relationships don’t last if there’s mistrust between partners. Your relationship is probably amazing if you can trust your partner and tell them everything, and they can do the same with you. You can also trust them not to hurt you, or do things that would upset you.
7. YOU’RE INTIMACY IS CLOSER THAN ANYTHING YOU’VE EVER FELT
Healthy relationships have a level of intimacy that unhealthy relationships don’t. Dr. Patricia Thompson says, “From the time we are born, we are meant to be touched. Touch is linked with feelings of safety, trust, and support, and individuals who receive more physical affection report feeling more positively about their relationship and their partner.
