Answer These 8 Questions, and See If You Are in a Happy Relationship
Relationships are tricky business. You never know whether you are in for the long run or if it was doomed from the very start. There are a lot of second guesses and cold feet moments when you get really serious about spending the rest of your life with someone. So how do you know if they are the one? Answering these 8 questions truthfully might help you in getting an insight into your relationship and whether or not you are truly happy in it. But remember, you have to be completely honest with yourself for this to work.
1. Do you think about them often?
How much are they on your mind during an average day. How many times do you catch yourself thinking about them absentmindedly? If you are in a happy relationship with someone you’d be thinking and dreaming about them quite a lot, they will be the first thought as you wake up and the last one before you call it a day.
2. Do you find yourself worrying about them?
Being in a worried state might not seem like the ideal happiness that we are talking about here but it is actually a good sign for your relationship. If you care about them enough to occasionally worry about their health and safety that means they mean a lot to you and have given you true happiness for you to be affected like that.
3. Do they really respect you as an individual?
For it to be really love and also to work in the long run, both the partners should respect each other a lot. A healthy appreciation for your partner goes a long way in cementing the base of your relationship.
4. Do you think they have made some positive changes in your personality?
If they have helped you in becoming a better person than what you were before, they are definitely a keeper. If they make you want to be a better version of yourself, then they are helping in your growth and definitely want and expect the best of you.
5. Do you feel kindness from your partner?
Kindness might not seem like a big deal when you are in the honeymoon phase of your relationship, but later you’d come to value it a lot. When your partner truly loves you, they show you kindness instead of being rude to you. Rudeness is just one step away from abuse and no kind of abuse, whether physical, verbal or emotional is okay in a relationship.
6. Do you think you can imagine a life without them?
And what was it that you imagined. Did you find it hard to think of yourself as happy and content in their absence? Well if yes, then it is a good sign. It shows that you are truly happy in your relationship and it would be hard for you to be without them.
7. Do you feel loved? Do they make you feel special?
Do they make you feel like they truly treasure you? By small gestures and big ones, do they show their appreciation for you and what it means for them to have you in their life?
8. Do you think you are more happy now, than you were before meeting them?
Do you really think that your life has taken a turn for the better ever since they came into it? Are you happier now that you have them with you rather than you were before?
