Is there any truth to the saying that we’re only ever really meant to be with just one person? Well, a lot of people seem to believe in this notion. It’s quite a romanticized narrative actually. A lot of people would like to chalk their love lives up to fate and destiny. They believe that they all have their special love stories which have already been pre-written; and it’s all just a matter of living it out.
This is the soulmate phenomenon which has been taking the romantic world by storm since the earliest days of human civilization. And it’s easy to see why a lot of people find comfort in the whole concept of soulmates and romantic destiny. It gives people a certain sense of reassurance and confidence that they are just destined to be with a particular person even when the odds are stacked against them.
However, there is just no scientific evidence that blatantly affirms the validity of the soulmate phenomenon. And despite knowing this, a lot of people still choose to be stubborn. They will still choose to believe in the soulmate narrative; and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Now whether or not the soulmate theory is true is totally moot. At the end of the day, if you manage to find someone to fall in love with, everything else becomes irrelevant. The semantics just don’t matter anymore. And that’s the truth. We may or may not have soulmates in life but there’s no denying that there are certain people we meet and fall in love with. And these people are definitely those we have to fight to keep in our lives no matter what.
So how do you know if you’re in a relationship with someone who is actually worth clinging on to? How do you know that you’re romantically involved with someone who has the potential to be your soulmate? Well, it all depends on your romantic chemistry. But don’t fret. There are a few signs that you could be on the lookout for. There are a few things that you can keep your eye on.
And if you find that a lot of the things listed on here apply to your relationship, then it’s highly likely that you two just might be destined to stay together forever. Here are 9 things healthy couples should always be able to do together.
1. Feel safe and secure with one another.
Healthy couples should always find comfort and security in one another. Smile and rejoice if you manage to feel safe and secure in the arms of your partner. You are able to really enjoy the benefits of your relationship without having to worry about your nonexistent insecurities.
2. Go shopping with one another.
Shopping may seem like such a dull and mundane activity for a lot of men; but this all becomes moot when it comes to someone you love. In fact, substitute shopping for any activity that might bore either one of you. You should strive for a relationship where neither of you care about what you’re doing so as long as you’re doing it together.
3. Have fun with one another.
This may seem obvious but it still needs to be said. You should always be able to have fun with one another. When you fall in love and get into a relationship, you risk becoming complacent with how you love one another. Having fun together on a consistent basis can be good for the dynamics of your relationship.
4. Be completely open and honest with one another.
You both should always be able to open up to one another about what you feel on the inside. You should feel safe about honestly expressing yourself to one another.
5. Be your own people outside of the relationship.
You should still be willing to give each other space and you must respect one another’s individuality. You shouldn’t lose your individual selves for the sake of the romance.
6. Tolerate one another’s differences and flaws.
You aren’t always going to see eye to eye on everything, and that’s okay. You don’t have to. You just have to be mature enough to work around your conflicts and disagreements.
7. Communicate constructively with one another.
Communication is always going to be one of the most important aspects of any relationship. And so it’s fairly obvious that you and your partner must always make it a point to be communicative with one another about absolutely anything.
8. Forgive one another.
And of course, you have to be able to forgive each other for being human. You have to be patient. Neither of you are going to be perfect all of the time and that sometimes leads to conflict. So when that happens, be patient and understanding with one another.
