You're a power couple!

Nowadays, a lot of couples you see will probably make you resent the idea of ever being in a relationship. They’ll either be on this one end where they’ll set out in their matching outfits, display significant amounts of PDA and make you uncomfortable with just the idea of hanging out with them. Or they’ll be one of those couples who just make you wonder why they ever agreed to be together in the first place, you’ll see them constantly arguing with each other over the smallest things and any time you spend with them will probably end in some torturous silence following a horrible fight they just had right in front of you.

But once in a while, you’ll meet this one couple you’ll grow to love and admire so much; a couple that’ll leave you wishing you could spend more time with them and you’ll secretly hate them just a little bit because of how perfect their relationship seems to be.

If you’re wondering whether your relationship is as perfect as that, then look out for these 9 signs:

  1. You both have independent lives

You’re both confident and secure enough to do your own thing, live your own dreams and be the person you truly want to be. You don’t impose any kind of restrictions on each other’s lives like where you can work or what kind of friends you can have or which parties you’re allowed to be at. You’ve learnt that true happiness lies in just letting each other be.

  1. You don’t air your dirty laundry out in the open

No relationship is perfect in every sense of the word. Every couple goes through the most horrible fights, says the most unbelievable things when they’re angry and tends to do some things that they probably regret later. But when you’re in a sensible and mature relationship, you’ll know that your problems are just temporary and they’re only yours to solve. You won’t go crying to every other person you know and involve them in a battle against your partner.

  1. You don’t display all your love online for the entire world to see

You don’t seize social media platforms as an opportunity to show off your relationship to the entire world, to make sure everyone knows just how much you guys love each other, and to write silly (and quite annoying) comments and posts where all your friends are left wondering whether they should unfollow you or just remove you from their list in order to avoid this daily dose of superficial bullsh*t.

  1. You’re comfortable with having disagreements

You’re not one of those couples who can’t even fathom the idea of saying something that the other person might dislike, who’s so scared of ever having a fight that they’ll just agree to anything and everything their partner has to say. No, you guys are definitely not as lame as that! You know that you are two separate individuals who have different views and opinions about things. You respect each other for that and you’re not afraid to have some intellectually-stimulating arguments every now and then. - Continue reading on the next page
