1) They make time for each other, no distractions
Some people spend time with their significant other without actually spending time together. Both are glued to their phones or distracted by their surrounding. Although they’re both physically in the same location, they keep interrupting their interaction with each other.
2) They communicate
Point two is somehow derived from point one, but it goes beyond just making time for each other and actually communicating during said time. People in healthy relationships are aware of their partner’s needs, behavior, and cues. If something is wrong, they communicate and work on resolving the issue instead of sweeping it under the rug until it becomes a mess in the future.
3) They learn how to be a team
There’s no ‘I’ in team. People in healthy relationships understand that they’re in this together. This doesn’t mean they sacrifice their individuality, on the contrary, they realize what each person can bring to the team to make it stronger.
4) They support each other
From even the most mundane tasks to the biggest life-threatening issues, people in healthy relationships are there for each other.
