What if in the pursuit of a perfect relationship, you realise that your own relationship is perfect. Yes, it is in fact possible. Things go south either when you’re not trying hard enough or trying too hard to attain the supposed perfect status. Never compare your relationship to another. There is no such thing as a standard when it comes to relationships. You need to do what’s right for you and your partner. Make efforts to make each other happy. Be considerate of each other. If both of you are happy with what you have, then that is the perfection you’ve been looking for all along.

Let’s have a look at the traits of a perfect relationship. They might sound insane, but if you read the whole thing through, you might change your mind;

  1. You argue

It’s only normal to have arguments. You’re human and you’re wired to feel a range of emotions including anger. The next person says something you just can’t stand and it begins. Now considering that this is a normal of any relationship doesn’t mean you allow it to escalate. It’s how you deal with it. If one of you is in a fit of range, the other should be patient with them, calm them down and try to reason with them. Just work on it together to get through it.

  1. You’re allowed to embrace your individuality

When you’re crazy in love with someone, you try to do everything how they’d like it, even so much so that you start changing as a person. It doesn’t have to be so. If the next person is equally involved, they’d never allow you to give up on the things that make you, you. It adds beauty to your relationship. The different personalities inculcate a sense of understanding and acceptance, which are essential to any relationship.
