Whether your relationship is a few years old or you are starting things new, it is never late to reflect on your relationship by asking some questions to yourself. Asking yourself questions is necessary to figure out that the person you are with currently is right for you.
Often most individuals decide to settle for the one they find after a few searches without even realizing that their partner might not possess the qualities they value. And if the relationship is long term then the mistake might lead to serious issues in the future.
So, to understand if your relationship is still adding profound value into your life, you need to ask these 5 basic questions to yourself, and no one else.
Do you and your partner want the same things?
To share your life with someone, it is crucial to ensure that you both remain on the same page. Whether you are taking impact decisions like marriage and kids or wondering about adopting a pet, it is mandatory to check whether both of your interests match. Although a compromise is an option, it is not recommended for life-altering decisions like settling down.
Do you both like the same things?
No you both don’t have to agree on everything blindly, but if you share a few common interests with your beau it would help you to stay connected long term. And even if you both don’t agree on a few things, are you okay exploring and pursuing your interests alone? Independence should be present within every connection and even if your partner does not indulge in your interests, they should not resent your choices.
Are you on the same page about monetary issues?
No matter how much we tend to deny the fact, having incompatible views about money have the potential to strain and break a relationship in due course. What if you love to splurge on luxuries and at the same time your partner finds it difficult to even spend a few pennies on necessary? Do you think that if you continue to keep your old habits going, your connection would reach new heights?
Even if you are together for long, you should not hesitate to bring up the topic of money to see whether both of you are happy with the way you two handle your cash.
Are you fond of each others’ friends and family?
If you have been taking this relationship seriously, then it is a good time to ask yourself whether do you feel comfortable in the company of your partner’s friends and family. Although you are not expected to befriend each and every friend in the circle of your partner, you should at least get along with them easily.
Does this relationship add value to your life?
What you want from a connection totally depends on you, but you should see whether you are getting all that from your relationship. Your ideal partner should add in more value in your life by making you feel special and worthy of all the love you deserve.
