1.You Trust Each Other
The number one sign that you are in a healthy relationship is the level of trust you share with your partner. It’s also the hardest thing to establish and can easily be taken away by any number of miss-steps. So how do you foster a trusting environment? This isn’t an easy question to answer, but there are steps you can take to make sure you are trusting your soulmate. For one, respect their personal space, don’t go through their phone or emails. Also, work on strong, meaningful communication, getting to know someone on a deeper level means they trust you enough to share their emotions, which is a big deal!
2. You Aren’t Codependent
A relationship should be between two individuals, and not founded on a constant need to rely on the other. This does not mean you can’t go to your partner for help, or when you are in need of something important; this just means that you shouldn’t define yourself by your partner. You know you are in a healthy relationship when you identify as an individual and not as a relationship.
3. You’ve had the “Future Talk”
This is scary, the idea of talking about your goals and dreams with your partner, what happens if it isn’t shared? Don’t worry though, everyone has to talk about it, and usually you end up closer with your partner as a result. Being open and honest is important, for both of your sanity. Plus knowing what each other want from the other reveals a lot of good, healthy information to know where to go with the relationship.
4. You’re on the Same Page
This is something that takes a lot of effort to maintain, but is completely worth it. Being on the same page means communicating, and working towards compromise with every struggle. You need to respect each other’s differences even if you disagree on important issues. And you are able to turn your differences into a fair compromise. This way you guys can be on the same page, but not be the same person.
At Project Soulmate we want you to find love that grows healthily and naturally!
