Find Out What Type of Relationship Yours Is
There are six major types of relationships, which one of these are you in?
Hooray for you! You’ve managed to land yourself the man or woman of your dreams! You’ve managed to find something that most people spend their entire lives trying to have. Love is a beautiful thing. It’s what makes the world go round. It’s what makes our morning coffee taste so much better. It’s what makes music so much more beautiful. It’s the reason we get out of bed every morning and live our harsh and difficult lives. Love is the reason we’re always willing to put up with whatever difficulties and trials are thrown our way because we know that love will always be worth it.
Not all relationships are created equal. Some relationships are toxic while others are nurturing. Some relationships are easy while others are difficult. Some relationships last for decades while others don’t even last a day. Some relationships are distant while others are closely-knit. The point here is that every relationship is going to be different. While it would be wrong to generalize, we feel that there are 6 probable types of relationships that can encompass all sorts of couples. Find out what type of relationship yours is by reading the rest of this article:
1. The Resource
In a resource relationship, you see your partner as someone who is vital in helping you achieve your own personal goals and dreams. You have set personal goals for yourself to accomplish and you see now way of achieving them without having your partner by your side. Your partner serves as your one-person support group. Your partner is your foundation and you feel like life is easier because you have your partner at your side. When the day comes that all your hopes and dreams come true, there’s no question who you want to be standing at your side.
2. The Paperweight
Most resource relationships are also the paperweight kind of relationships. The paperweight relationships are those when you see your partner as your home. Your partner is the only entity in this world that can tie you down and keep you grounded. Your partner is what keeps you from being blown away by strong winds. You see your relationship as the only way to make sure that you’re not caught on an endless drift to nowhere. Your paperweight is there to keep you focused and determined to achieve all that you want in life. You’ll never find yourself having your head in the clouds when your partner serves as your paperweight. – Continue reading on the next page
3. The Revolutionary
The revolutionary relationship is the life-changing relationship. And when we say life-changing, we literally mean the kind of relationship that can alter the course of someone’s life. Most revolutionary relationships will be long-term in nature. Couples who have revolutionary relationships recognize each other’s significance in determining how their narratives will play out. Revolutionary partners are those who manage to drastically change your life in a way that you never even could have imagined when you were still single. The key to making revolutionary relationships last is to somehow allow yourselves evolve into a type of relationship where you can be either a Resource or a Paperweight to each other. Revolutions can cause instability, but you always have the potential to weather that storm.
4. The Relief
You see your partner as a form of relief. If you’re caught in a Relief type of relationship, then there’s really not much depth there. Your partner might as well be a full body massage in your eyes. Your partner might as well be a weekend getaway to the beach. They’re only there for when you need to escape from the harsh realities of the world. You don’t necessarily envision a future for the both of you and you’re just playing things by ear. You each just use each other whenever it’s convenient. You don’t really play significant roles in each other’s lives. You’re essentially a human stress-ball that your partner gets to squeeze when they’re upset.В – Continue reading on the next page
5. The Free Trial
You know how when you’ve gotten used to a certain app or software on your computer and then you find that it just keeps on crashing after a while. You think to yourself: What if I try something new out? That’s essentially what this relationship feels like. You see your partner as a free trial. Your partner is the answer to Why not?. Things haven’t worked out for either of you in the past and so you treat each other as an experiment; a free trial software. Things can still work in the future for the both of you, but you’ve got to make sure that you invest in premium versions of yourselves first.
6. The Passion Project
This is the kind of relationship where you see your partner as a sort of school project. This relationship can be very demanding and very toxic. You shouldn’t see your partner as a block of marble that awaits your handlings with a rasp. You are not a painter and your partner shouldn’t have to serve as your canvas. People always end up getting hurt when they are made to feel like they are mere objects that can be improved or upgraded.
