Love Your Health Money Family & Relationship

There are many types of relationships, but they all have one thing in common – willingness to standby each other not only during good and happy day but also when the hard times. These qualities should be at the heart of your long lasting and loving relationships with friends, family, siblings, parents, spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends and other loved ones. There are some key traits of a healthy relationship and these signs mean it is working.

How do you know your relationship will work out and last long?

Dependability – this means that you can always rely on your loved one no matter what. A lot of relationships now a days (maybe old days too) are shallow. People love each other when they are together but as soon as the relationship is over, the love goes away with it too. A healthy relationship will display a willingness to offer dependability as well as comfortable feeling of relying on one.

Well Balanced love – Although there is no such thing as loving him or her too much, but there is something called too little love. Some couples have somehow gotten married together too soon without realizing one of them don’t love each other as much as the other one does. That’s why we say your relationship should have a good balance of give and take. A boyfriend can’t be supporting girlfriend financially without the girl offering supports in other aspects of their life. Similarly, the guy can’t expect the women to sleep with him every day or night because she may be sick or doesn’t feel like it.

Trustworthy – trust is a big factor in any relationship, especially during its maturation. As relationship grows older so does the trust. Not many people trust other people than their loved one and even there are some doubts on their partners as time goes by. But when both sides really trust each other that means it is working for both. When you are on the first date, it is hard to tell. As time goes by and you two have been dating for few months, you can tell if the guy or girl is reliable and trustworthy or not.

Unconditional Love – a lot of relationships don’t last long because their love for each other is conditional – meaning it will depend on different factors. A relationship that is starting to work might face this problem in the beginning but unconditional love will prevail as more time is spent upon strengthening the love than on fighting over unnecessary things. Yes, you won’t have unconditional love on the first date; if you do, either you are lying or you don’t know your own mentality and thought process.

Honesty – Most new relationships won’t last long at all, if they last more than few months, it would be surprising and due to honesty between the two partners. This is why it is important that the couples always talk to each other and be honest. When you are building a committed relationship and spending a lot of time with each other, truth will eventually come out. It is very easy to get caught lying or make your husband or wife suspicious when you start to talk less and avoid certain topics of discussion.

    what are some “RED FLAGS” in a dating relationship that i need to look for if it will lead to marriage or a failed relationship? I am willing to work out differences, but don’t want to jump into another failed love relationship. See, I would hate to end up in a divorce someday after i marry him. For me taking the step into marriage is no joke and is big deal because as I mentioned before I need to be 100 percent sure that it will lead me to become married and that the relationship is going to work out. I also know that just because you “love” someone the “love” alone isn’t enough to to withstand the test of time and the challenges life brings upon people. in my personal life experiences I have noticed that the best advice in realtionships usually come from men, maybe due to the fact that men generally tend to use more logical thinking than woman, of course it not like that in all cases.
