1. You’re Both Respectful
One of the easiest ways to tell what is a good relationship from what is not is respect. If you respect him, and he respects you, feel free to move forward. But if he’s disrespectful, or if you often feel less-than-respectful of him, it’s not a good, healthy relationship, and it won’t be later, either.
2. You Can’t Wait To See Each Other
When you’re in a good relationship, you both can’t wait to see each other… the time you spend apart is fine, but you really look forward to your time together. It might be hard to be away from your honey, but seeing them again after you’ve missed them makes it all worth it!
3. He’s Uplifting And Not Abusive
When you’re in a good relationship, you’ll want to back your guy, highlight his strengths and fill in the gaps he might leave. He’ll do the same for you. What is a good relationship? One in which you build each other up, rather than tearing each other down.
4. There’s Real Chemistry
I know this is going to sound shallow, but one of the signs of a good relationship is a spark, some chemistry. I’m certainly not saying that sex is the most important thing, but let’s face it — it is important. If there’s no spark, then there’s a chance he’s more of a friend, and less of a boyfriend or potential husband.
5. You’re Honest With Each Other
A good relationship cannot be built on lies, so unless you’re honest with him, and he’s honest with you, it’s not a good relationship. This includes big lies as well as smaller fibs… and if there’s anything you’re not sharing with him, now’s the time to start.
