After a breakup, we usually start thinking and trying to understand why it happened. We may blame ourselves, our partners, or our circumstances. But it’s better to analyze the situation and figure out if you both were ready to build a serious relationship.
We have collected 8 characteristics of serious and long-lasting relationships. Are you ready to test yourself?
8. Personal development
When your relationship is healthy, you constantly improve yourself. You find new friends, get a better job, and build your career. Your beloved will always support you, they aren’t envious of your achievements, and they don’t claim you spend all your time at work and don’t pay attention to them.
If your relationship is immature, you’ll notice that you have less friends, your career isn’t going anywhere, your life is devoted to your partner and their interests.
7. Attitude toward your partner
One of the main relationship rules says that you have to accept your partner the way they are. Of course, you might believe that you can change them or influence their views, but you shouldn’t force them to bend to your will.
First, these attempts usually lead to arguments. Second, if you’ve fallen in love with this person with their habits and flaws, it means that you’ve understood what you’re going to have to put up with.
A partner who truly loves you will always support all your crazy and even ridiculous ideas, not because they have to, but because they share your interests. You both act like one mechanism and you don’t care what others think.
