3. THEY CELEBRATE EACH OTHER’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS, BIG OR SMALL.
Accomplishments achieved, goals reached, or any step in the right direction should always be acknowledged and celebrated. A good partner in a healthy relationship will recognize this. Whether something big or small happens, if it’s good news it should be celebrated. Healthy couples will take one another out for a celebratory dinner, or buy flowers – anything they can do to say ‘congratulations’ with actions and not just words keeps the relationship going strong.
4. THEY SHARE COMMON INTERESTS.
If you both enjoy similar hobbies and you share common interests, you have a real shot at making your relationship last. Going to the gym together every Tuesday and Thursday, hiking together, or reading in bed together every night are all good options Even something as simple as cuddling up on the couch together and watching a series you both enjoy on Netflix is a great thing to share. All of these shared hobbies can strengthen your bond as a couple.
5. THEY SURPRISE EACH OTHER.
An amazing quality in a partner is their desire to still surprise you with romantic gestures. Gestures such as a homemade dinner with candlelight, a thoughtful gift or a romantic note should not be lost once the honeymoon phase is over. These are the types of gestures that are necessary for any relationship to last, as they help your partner stay happy and continually feel loved.
