Do you remember a time when you got embarrassed farting around a new partner? Or you were worried they’d be put off by your morning breath? Well, if you’ve found the right person, these things aren’t embarrassing anymore. If you feel like you can do anything around your partner without worrying they’ll be grossed out, then your relationship can stand the test of time.

2. You don’t need to text all the time

In a new relationship, it’s quite common to spend a lot of your time texting and calling one another, simply because everything is new and exciting and you can’t get enough of one another. But this phase isn’t meant to last, and it wouldn’t be healthy for it to carry on. If you don’t feel the need to text them all of the time, then you’ve probably got a very strong relationship.

3. You encourage them to go out

It’s so important for you and your significant other to have friendships and relationships outside of your own. Giving each other space is really healthy, and it gives you something fun to talk about when you see each other again. If you often encourage them to go out with their friends, then you clearly love and trust your partner a great deal.

4. They make you laugh

Being with someone who makes you laugh is the key to a happy and long-lasting relationship. I mean, if they can’t make you chuckle, then how would you ever get through those tough times? So if they make you belly laugh regularly and pick you up when you feel down, you know that your relationship is built to last.

5. Your friends like your partner

What your friends think and feel about your partner matters a lot. Why? Because they can see what you can’t—they’re not obstructed by rose-tinted glasses. So, if your friends can see that your partner adores you and they tell you that you’re good for each other, you can be sure that your relationship is super strong.

6. You give each other space

Having some time apart from your partner is healthy and ensures that you’re both looking after yourselves. In fact, being alone can have big mental health benefits, allowing you both to recharge and reset. If you often encourage your partner to go out by themselves or do other solo activities, then that’s a clear sign that your relationship is strong and healthy.

7. You don’t get jealous

Jealousy is a pretty useless emotion since it doesn’t benefit you or anyone else. Not to mention that jealousy can become a huge problem in a relationship if it’s not quickly fixed. If you don’t get jealous when your partner meets his friends or talks about coworkers, then it means you completely trust them. And that’s a strong sign of a healthy relationship.

8. You support their hobbies

Having hobbies is great for your physical and mental health. It encourages you to get out of your comfort zone and focus on something outside of work and other responsibilities. Supporting your partner’s hobbies and encouraging them to spend more time on them shows that you’re a loving and kind person who values your relationship.

9. You don’t talk about them all the time

We’ve all been there—in those early days, we can’t stop talking about our new partner and constantly find ways to mention their name. But over time, you find that you don’t need to talk about them at every opportunity. After all, there are plenty of other things to talk about. If you don’t feel the burning desire to mention their name every second, then your relationship is stronger than you realize.

10. You rarely argue

You can expect some arguments in every relationship, but how much or how little you argue makes a huge difference. If you can’t remember the last time you argued or raised your voice at your partner, then you have a mature and rock-solid relationship.

11. You make time for each other

Honestly, life gets in the way sometimes, and it can become increasingly difficult to schedule regular dates. But even if you’ve been together for a few years now, it’s still important to keep making an effort with each other. So, if you go out of your way to make time for each other even when you’re both really busy, you have nothing to worry about.

12. They take an interest in your day

Asking them, “How was your day?” never gets old. It’s a question that most of us like to be asked because it shows that the other person cares and it opens up a conversation. Encouraging your partner to open up and share their feelings with you shows that you care a great deal about them.

13. You love introducing them to people

Weirdly, some couples feel embarrassed or uncomfortable introducing their partner to people for the first time. However, that shouldn’t be the case. You should feel happy and excited about introducing them to others, especially since they get to meet the person who’s had such a big impact on your life. If that’s you, your relationship is solid.

14. You’re open with each other

Honestly is the best policy, right? Being open with each other is an essential part of a healthy relationship because it’s the only way that you can know what’s going on in each other’s lives and offer the right support. Choosing to be honest with your partner shows that you care about them and that you don’t take your relationship for granted.

15. You don’t post about each other on social media

In the early days, it was common to post each other frequently on social media. But when your relationship develops and strengthens, you realize that posting each other isn’t the most important thing. After all, you know you love one another deeply, so why do you need to prove that to others? You don’t, of course, because you know your relationship is special.
