The right relationship for Jane might be different from the right relationship for Glory; likewise the right relationship for James might differ from the right relationship for Sule.
In spite of all these differences, the right relationship has the same characteristics, and when you are in the right relationship, these are some of the things you experience:
1. YOU INSPIRE EACH OTHER TO BE BETTER
In the right relationship, there is this genuine desire from both partners to make each other be the best they can be. When you can do everything to make your partner better and your partner can do same — then that’s the best relationship you can be in.
2. YOU ARE BOTH IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER
I’ve read and seen arguments where some women feel the men should love them more and the men feel they deserve more love and respect for the relationship to move forward. I honestly disagree with both school of thoughts; in the right relationship, both the man and woman love each other sincerely, from the depths of their heart.
The right relationship is built on genuine love from both partners.
3. YOU HAVE A FUTURE TOGETHER
The right relationship isn’t just bent on today and for the now, no! Two people cannot be right and feel right for each other without thinking of tomorrow and a future. You know you are in the right relationship when there’s genuine desire from both parties for the future.
4. YOU FEEL SURE
In the right relationship, there is no room for doubt; you both feel sure about what you are doing — you know deep within you that this is it and there is nothing to be afraid of.
5. YOU DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE EACH OTHER HAPPY
When you both put each other’s interest at heart and do everything to make each other happy, then you have a relationship that the world can envy. The right relationship is a happy relationship.
6. IT’S NOT JUST SEXUAL
The right relationship isn’t just sexual; it goes beyond lustful desires; it’s more about passion, dedication and commitment from both partners. The right relationship isn’t just centred on sex; it’s way deeper than that.
7. YOU FORGIVE EACH OTHER
The right relationship would definitely become wrong if both partners have unforgiving hearts.
It isn’t that partners in the right relationship live a perfect life — no! They wrong each other too, they fight and quarrel, but in the right relationship partners forgive each other and learn to move on.
8. YOU LEARN TO FIGHT PRODUCTIVELY
There are productive and unproductive fights. In the right relationship, partners quarrel, not to provoke each other but to reach a productive end. They argue fairly, and try not to hurt each other in the process — and if they do, they try to apologise.
9. YOU COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER
This article would definitely be incomplete if I didn’t add this. Communication is highly important, if that relationship is going to be right. In the right relationship, both partners see the need to communicate regularly with each other and they both learn how to communicate their feelings with each other.
10. YOU MAKE EACH OTHER FEEL LOVED
In the right relationship, partners tend to make each other feel loved; they show each other love, tell each other how much they love each other and they also appreciate and compliment each other.
Togetherness is another key word in the right relationship. When in the right relationship with your partner, you love to do things together, be with each other, spend quality time with each other and enjoy every moment spent with each other.
12. YOU ARE TEAMMATES
In the right relationship, you and your partner form a team; you are buddies, you are friends, you are teammates and you don’t just think about yourselves but the team.
The right relationship is the best relationship for everyone. Being in the right relationship would make you blossom in love.
