Thanks to romantic movies and social media envy, we tend to have a more glamorized idea of what our relationship should look like. We overlook the basics and yearn for something that, frankly, is impossible to achieve.
This comparison of our own love life to that of other’s can end up making us unhappy and even cause us to act out with our partners. So, before you go destroying your perfectly happy life, here are signs you’re in a great relationship.
1. You enjoy each other’s company
You love being around each other. He makes you laugh and you simply feel good when you’re with him. Even when there’s nothing to talk about, you don’t want to be anywhere else. You’re comfortable being alone with him and he enjoys your company as well.
2. You are not afraid to say what’s on your mind
Communication is one of the most important keys to a successful relationship. So, if you are able to express your thoughts without fear of judgment, then you’re in a decent relationship. If he feels safe talking to you about anything, then it’s all good.
3. He’s loyal and honest
One of the signs you’re in a great relationship is when you can trust the person. He’s faithful to you and you can count on his honesty. He does what he says he will do and he’s dependable.
4. He makes sacrifices
A relationship requires some give and take. And there will be times you have to compromise on things. If he has no problems making sacrifices to give you what you need, then you’re solid as a couple.
5. He remembers the little things
He may not buy you a giant cake or drown you in roses but he considers the things he knows are important to you. He remembers your favorite color, for instance, and chooses that when he buys you something special.
