"Have times when you don't talk to each other and not just because you have argued or because you are angry with each other but because you can be quiet together. When you find yourself with silences you don't need to fill, when you can just walk along or laze about, work side by side and feel together without needing to verbally affirm that, you are lucky, you've got a good thing going." - Susan
7 Signs You're In The Right Relationship
1. Your partner is your best friend
It's not all about the physical stuff – though that's definitely an added bonus. You and your guy can't get enough of each other's company. Whenever something happens, your partner is the first person you want to share it with. Also, the teasing is merciless.
2. Your differences aren't a dealbreaker
Nobody would accuse you and your partner of being the same person. You have different beliefs, different personalities and different ways of viewing the world. Instead of weakening your foundation, the differences only make you more interesting to each other.
3. You're completely yourselves
The stage of game playing is long over. You're not trying to win each other, because you already have. You both feel secure enough in your relationship to be the people you really are – and, the real person is the person both of you are in love with.
4. You don't feel like you have to prove anything
You know how fantastic your relationship is – there's no question. You could be Instagramming couple selfies and posting loved-up messages on his wall all day, but you don't see the point in trying to prove to other people what you already know to be true.
5. You fight productively
Neither of you fight for the sake of fighting – you're not into the drama. When you do disagree, the aim of your game isn't to 'win'. It's to get your point across and try to find common ground. When you fight, both of you try to understand each other, and compromise is the key.
6. You have your own lives
While you and your partner do share a lot of friends, you also have separate groups. You'll never begrudge each other the opportunity to spend time with the other people in your lives, because you know how important you are to each other. You'll never feel threatened.
7. You make each other better
Neither of you are trying to change each other, but somehow you have. Both of you each other want to be the best version of yourself for each other. Some of your partner's passions have become yours, and vice versa. You are good for each other – it's that simple!
