In every relationship love is the trading currency and that is the fact.

  1. A partner in a healthy relationship accepts and loves you for the person you are today.

2. If the both of you can find healthy ways to resolve your differences, or discuss even the toughest topics then you have a healthy relationship. Being in a healthy relationship means having really great communication, and that means different thing at different times. Communicating can mean negotiating and finding mutually beneficial solutions to arguments, but it can also mean feeling comfortable sharing with your partner. So at the end of a long day, you should count of your partner to be there and listen – and vice versa!

3. Good partners recognize that they are a part of your life – not your entire life. The person you are with should encourage you and always give you the space you want and need. Even more than that, having a significant other should never mean that you have to give up relationships with your friends or family. Your partner is there to make your life even better, not take people away from it.

4. Every relationship has different expectations, but one thing is for certain: you should only be doing things with your partner that you are 100 percent comfortable with and ready for. People who love you don’t pressure you or shame you for not doing what they want. Never compromise integrity, think carefully before giving up on personal goals that you may end up regretting.

5. when the people you love most in your life are as excited about your partner as you are, it is an awesome sign! It’s important not to isolate yourself with your partner and to connect with the many aspects and people in each other’s lives. Of course there are few cases where the voice of the peple is the voice of God. Think carefully.

6. Sometimes you just need alone time. Whether alone time means tea, chocolate, Netflix, Tumblr, yoga, hiking, or anything you need to recharge, it is totally OK to take care of yourself. People in relationships support each other, and sometimes that support means giving your partner space so they can enjoy their hobbies and passions. Ut if your hobbies become escape means from your relationship then you need to resolve the problem rather than hide from it.

7. You should never feel pressured to give your partner your passwords, or access to your phone, computer, or anything private. Healthy relationships are built on trust and mutual respect, not suspicion and background checks. You should feel confident that you can hang out with friends, leave your phone unattended, or have someone post on your Facebook wall without getting the third degree! It’s not all the time that your partner refuses you access that they are hiding something it could mean they are insecure too. So before you read some facebook post and jump to conclusion; first try to discuss it with them before deciding if they are secretive or they are insecure. But healthy relationship recurs openness.

8. It’s not cool when someone dictates how you should dress, whether they overtly tell you or use more subtle tactics like shaming or passive aggressively making comments. The same goes for the choices you make in where you go or what you choose to do. This is your life, and a partner who respects you will be happy when you live it on your terms. However you should also be open to corrective criticism. Relationship forces us to open up and give up on self just for the joy of the other person; it however doesn’t give the other person the right to bully on you. At some point the both of you will make healthy sacrifices to keep the boat floating.

Remember that love is placing your life in the hands of another and hoping that they don’t take it away. Knowing that anyone who has ever been truly love would return love in the same measure they were loved. You give love to get love
