When you’re tired of dating and you want to start building something lasting with your partner, compatibility is a key issue. You don’t have to be similar in every aspect, but it is important to be on the same page when it comes to certain points.
These are some aspects that can make or break a relationship:
1. Communication style
Your relationship can become rock-solid if you can communicate easily and clearly. Don’t underestimate the power of the spoken word. Don’t expect your partner to read your mind and know what you’re thinking without you telling them.
2. Friends and family
It’s important to get along with each other’s friends and relatives. Maybe not the number one requirement, but still relevant. How long can you avoid them in the long run? And you shouldn’t forget that your partner has been molded by these people. So you can surely find something to like about them.
Sharing the same interests is very important for a relationship to survive. If you can read a book and discuss it with your partner, this will not only improve your individual experience, but it can also make your bond stronger. A challenging partner is a blessing, so don’t forget to grow together!
This could be about romance, sexuality or other displays of affection. While the sexual aspect of your relationship should not be underestimated, intimacy can and should be built in many ways. Holding hands at the right moment or preparing the coffee in the morning can show as much love as not leaving your bedroom for three days.
People can change and being in a relationship can surely make you want to be a better person. But before expecting the other to change, can you handle their weakest points? Do you know how to manage them when they are not at the best? Are you stronger together or your combined shortcomings will make your relationship explode at some point?
Please share this and let your partner know that you believe in your relationship!
