Compatibility is everything!
Compatibility is an often overlooked but very important aspect of any relationship. You have to understand that relationships end left and right and a lot of these relationships end even though people necessarily fall out of love with one another. It happens all too often. And it begs to ask the question: why do two people who love one another still find a way to break up with each other? Well, it can be hard to find a general answer for all relationships. The reasons and factors can vary from case to case. But ultimately, the most common culprit is incompatibility.
The sad truth is that love alone can’t save a relationship. It’s always going to require a lot of effort, commitment, dedication, loyalty, and time. But even then, relationships can still fail. Relationships are always going to be a lot of hard work. And the best couples really understand that it’s all about trying to make their lives together as easy as possible. And life in a relationship because infinitely easier with compatibility.
So how do you know if you and your partner are truly compatible with one another? Well, here are a few signs that you could be on the lookout for.
1. You are always honest with one another.
Honesty is very important for relationships. And when you are truly compatible with one another, then you wouldn’t have any problems being honest with each other. You respect each other too much to actually lie to one another or deprive each other of the truth.
2. You can both really rely on each other to be there for one another.
Dependability is another great sign that you’re both very comfortable with one another. You can really rely on your partner to be there for you whenever you need them to be even when it’s inconvenient for them to be there.
3. You have healthy communication habits as a couple.
Communication is the bedrock of any couple. So if you two have a really strong communication game, then it’s a great sign that you’re both compatible with one another. Healthy communication means that you’re both comfortable with one another and that you have great chemistry together.
4. You both encourage one another to be your own people outside of the relationship.
You both still value your individual freedom outside of the relationship. You don’t let your relationship define you and in this way, you really work well with one another. You still encourage each other to live your individual lives even though you’re together.
5. You have boundless respect for one another.
Mutual respect is always going to be the most important aspect of starting any relationship. You can’t really have a healthy relationship if you don’t respect one another. But if your respect for one another is natural and organic, then it means that you’re both very much compatible.
6. You share plenty of common values and principles in life.
Another huge sign of good compatibility levels in a relationship is when you both share common interests, goals, values, and principles. So if you find that you agree a lot about fundamental issues in life, then that’s a good indication that you’re compatible with one another.
7. You really trust one another.
Trust is always a good sign of compatibility. When you trust one another in a relationship, you are essentially saying that you are willing to give your life to another person. You are saying that you would willingly let yourself become vulnerable to your partner.
8. You are both interested in building a future together.
You are both forward-thinking. And when you do think about the future, you both imagine a future that involves being together in a relationship. You are compatible because you envision a future that both of you can share together. You aren’t shutting each other out as far as your planning is concerned.
9. You really support and encourage one another.
You both have your goals and your dreams, and you really support each other. You don’t serve as roadblocks for one another. You don’t get into each other’s way.
10. You both spend lots of time together.
Time is always a good indicator of compatibility. When you’re truly in love with a person, you would absolutely make the time to be with this person. You would never willingly give your time for things or for people that are unimportant to you.
11. You don’t stop caring for one another even when it’s inconvenient.
You would do whatever you could to make your partner feel loved and cared for. You would always try your best to make each other’s lives easier.
12. You make each other very happy.
Happiness is always going to be the ultimate goal at the end of it all. And if you really make each other happy in the relationship, then not much else really matters. You are better people because of your relationship and so you are grateful for it.
