The definition of a healthy and romantic relationship may not be the same for each couple. Couples seeking relationship improvement and building of healthy relationships need adequately evaluate the relationship first to determine whether the relationship is healthy or unhealthy and whether the relationship needs improvement. The following are qualities of a healthy relationship.
Qualities of healthy relationships.
Both partners in a healthy relationship enjoy passion and safety. There is also a shared sense of intense passion and sexuality but they are not the key aspect of the relationship. In other word, passion and sexuality are the resultant of a balance relationship but not the cause.
A healthy relationship revolves around shared values, goals and lifestyle preferences which were established based on respect, trust and sense of security.
Understanding each others needs.
In a healthy relationship, partners know who the other partner is and what the other partner wants and vice-versa. Partners fully understand each others wants and needs.
In a healthy relationship there is always clear balance in both partners’ feelings. Both your feelings’ and communication are well balanced and clear. You do not allow your feeling to be the excuse on irresponsible act which can affect your relationship and vice-versa.
In a healthy relationship both you and your partner has the room to think clearly for yourselves, for each other and as well as your relationship as a whole there is no total dependency.
Spending Quality time Together.
In a healthy relationship, both you and your partner are present for each other and vow to support each other’s wants or needs to the best ability.
Satisfaction and Contentment.
If you are in a healthy and romantic relationship you are satisfied with whom you are and more importantly you are satisfied with whom your partner is.
Total Pride and acceptance of one another.
In a healthy relationship partners do not hide the other behind the scene and are always proud of each others achievements. Partners Love each other for who they are and not what they are.
Total responsibility for success and failures
In a healthy relationship both partners are pleased with the relationship that they both build and know that nothing can replace the relationship and take collective credit for successes and failures.
In a healthy relationship you have a realistic expectation on the relationship, on what it can or cannot do for you and never expecting too much most importantly both of you are happy and satisfied with the expectation.
If your relationship has most of the above qualities, you are on the right track towards building a healthy and romantic relationship and you have nothing worry about. Seek to work on improving the other area that is lacking. But if your relationship does not have most of these qualities then you can always use the above as a guideline to building a health and romantic relationship.
