As with #2, my 7th sign also appeared in my other article, and for good reason. I believe that the best relationships are those in which both. In a good relationship, you'll feel like you are filled with love, trust, openness, and acceptance for your partner, and you will feel like your partner. No amount of love is worth giving up who you are and the respect you deserve. Without good communication, how can anything in the relationship be clear.
When you're in a good relationship, you learn things.

You act differently and you think as part of a team -- not as an individual making their way through the world. You'll be more understanding and accepting of your partner, instead of just getting frustrated with them, like you may have with past relationships.
Misunderstandings are going to happen. If you take your partner's words one way, then learn they meant something totally different, don't punish him or her.
Bringing it up all the time is only going to bruise the relationship and cause communication problems later. Sometimes what you say or do will be taken the wrong way, and you'll get frustrated that your partner doesn't understand. Take a step back and realize it's not a big deal. Misunderstandings only become problems if you let them grow bigger and mean more in the scope of your relationship.
Be laid-back and forgive misunderstandings.
You have to trust your partner. Why would you share your life with someone when you think they're doing something wrong every time you turn your back? If you don't trust your partner to be faithful, honest, caring or anything else, then you're not in a good relationship.
When You're In a Good Relationship, You Learn These 10 Things
The best relationships begin with a deep trust, and even if problems come up and they will! Let yourselves miss each other. You're in love, so you want to be together all the time! It's so fun to cuddle all night and be together all day, but when will you have time to experience different things? When you go to separate work places or schools, you're experiencing things that will give you something to talk about later.
When you go out with your friends and your partner spends time with theirs, then you're having time and space to yourself, then coming back to each other refreshed. You have a chance to miss each other, and it helps you really understand the value of your relationship. Missing someone is great because getting to see them after that period will make you so happy and so sure of your relationship.
Encourage growth and change. In a good relationship, both partners are encouraged to grow and change. You have one life to live -- you should explore it to the fullest! If you want to quit your job and go back to school, your partner should support you.
If you want to try something new or go back to something old, you should find support in your relationship. And you should give this support in return. Encourage your partner to explore hobbies and interests and meet new people. If you want your partner to stay the same, you're going to have a very boring life together. Compromising doesn't mean you're weak. Compromising doesn't mean "giving in.
In fact, it's the opposite. Do you know how hard it is to compromise sometimes?
You want your way because it sounds right and makes sense to you. Your partner is way off base with their suggestions. Take a step back and look at the argument diplomatically. What's the logical conclusion? Trust Trust is one of the most important factors in a relationship.

If you don't trust the person you are with, then it is probably not a healthy, stable relationship and you most likely feel insecure about it.
Honesty Being truthful and honest is major when it comes to relationships. A relationship built on false hope and white lies will only crumble in the end, no matter how much you love the other person. No amount of love is worth giving up who you are and the respect you deserve.
Love is not a justification for disrespect or abuse. Communication Communication is key in any relationship to define boundaries.
You need it to express feelings, needs and expectations. You need it to solve conflicts and you even need it when it comes to intimacy.
Without good communication, how can anything in the relationship be clear and the rest of these values be strengthened? Loyalty This one is up there with trust.
Loyalty acts as a building block in relationships for other values such as those on this list. You have to actually want to be in a relationship and commit to it in order for it to work. Relationships aren't always sunshine and rainbows, but the happy times should far outweigh the unhappy ones.
