You and you’re partner might get along great but there’s always a doubt in your mind about whether he or she is the right person for you. We’ve put together a list of things to help you recognise whether you’re dating the right person or not.
You disagree a lot – No two relationships are the same and some individuals are more likely to have arguments than others. However, there is a difference between communicating differences and fighting through them. Ask yourself if you’re approach to dealing with differences is productive and healthy? If the answer is no, maybe you need to try talking and not fighting.
Your friends don’t like your partner – Whether they tell you or not, your friends have your back! So they want you to be treated right. So even though we think we know best when it comes to our relationships, our friends have our backs and they see things more clearly. So maybe you should try and find out exactly why your friends don’t like your partner instead of shrugging it off.
You don’t like your partner’s friends – as the saying goes, you can judge a person by their friends. Their friends are also a good indication of what your partner is like- at the end of the day they get along for a reason and that’s because they most probably have things in common. So if those things are personality traits you don’t like in a person, maybe your feelings for your partner are clouding your judgment.
Other couples don’t want to hang out with you – If you’re friends and their partners always seem to be busy when you ask to double date, maybe there’s a reason for that. Try not to get cross with your friends and instead take a look at your relationship with your partner and whether this might be influencing your friend’s decision not to hang out.
You don’t think about your partner much – this point seems quite evident because when you really like someone they will be on your mind most of the time and not only when you’re spending time with them.
Trust issues – If you don’t trust your partner or they don’t trust you this should be a great big warning light! A relationship without trust is no relationship at all.
Trying to change each other – If you’re trying to change your partner to an ideal partner or vice versa then this is also not healthy. You should be dating someone for who they are not who you want them to be. It’s natural to have likes and dislikes about someone but in a relationship, you should appreciate one another, flaws and all.
