Long Term Relationship Goals and Relationship Goals Quotes
In today’s society where Tinder is one of the most used apps, it can be difficult to maintain long-term healthy relationships. There is so much information about how to find someone, how to fall in love, how to date, how to get someone to like you, but not that much on how to create a relationship from the beginning that is meant to last. What are some goals you should strive for as a couple if you want to have and maintain a healthy relationship?
1Fight, But Never Feel Unloved
Fighting, discussions, arguments, however, you want to call it, disagreements are a healthy part of any relationship. The trick is to be able to voice your disagreement without making your partner feel unloved or unwanted. You are arguing a topic or a fact, not the other person.
2Give Each other Alone Time
There are two things to consider here. First, It’s healthy for every relationship that both sides have their own time alone, be with other friends etc. It is definitely not healthy to be together 24/7, and its always fun to miss each other! So give each other space and alone time.
3Respect The Time You Share
There is nothing that feels as bad as being physically together with someone and feeling alone. Even being alone and feeling lonely is not as bad as that. This happens when your partner does not pay attention to you when you ask for it, regularly. Or when they “talk” to you, but are on their phone at the same time. Don’t be that partner, and don’t accept that from your partner.
4Be A Couple, And Still Be An Individual
There are three in any relationship. You, your partner, and your relationship. In order to function healthily in the long-term, you need to equally pay attention to each. There needs to be a balance between individual needs and relationship needs.
5Your Goals Are Their Goals, And Their Goals Are Yours
Even if you do not care about what they care about in and of itself, in a healthy relationship you support their goals, simply because it is important to them. And they do the same for you. That support can take many forms, from just having a warm meal ready when they come home late from work, to joining them in their practice.
6Be Able To Do Stressful Things Together, And Know When To Call It Quits.
Whether it is building Ikea furniture together or going on a road trip, there are some things that stress out even the most balanced individuals. If you can’t do them together because it causes to much stress, be able to accept that and simply not do them together. The relationship is more important than building that closet together.
7Have Time To Connect Without Electronics, And Send Each Other Cute Messages
Electronics are a part of our daily lives, there is no denying that. Be careful not to have all your conversations with a smartphone in your hand though. Face to face electronic free connection time is so important to a healthy relationship. At the same time, it is always fun to bring a smile to your partners face with a cute little message saying you are thinking about them.
8Be Kind, And Be Firm In Your Boundaries
Just because you know what your boundaries are, does not mean you need to be mean about them. It creates a so much better relationship when you learn to communicate assertively while being kind at the same time.
9Be Vulnerable, And Make Space For Your Partners Vulnerability
Nobody is perfect and when you wear a mask all the time, people will never get to know the real you. When you feel sensitive, or when something happens that makes you feel something, share that with your partner. At the same time, also allow them to share their feelings, even if they are not standard for their gender.
10Enjoy Each Other, Without Ignoring More Serious Issues
It is, of course, great if you can talk about serious issues in the world, and in your relationship with your partner. And very important to be able to do that. At the same time, don’t forget to build in some time for uncomplicated fun times either. Those are equally important.
11Have Great Sex, And Accept When The Other Is Not In The Mood
Mutually satisfying sex life is so important for a healthy relationship. That means not pushing when the other is not in the mood, but still being open for a conversation if it happens too often.
12The Best Thing To Spend On Your Relationship Is Time, Conversation, Understanding and Honesty.
Money is not at all important if you have these things in your relationship.
13Date Someone Who Is A Home And An Adventure All At Once
Find that balance where you can feel at home with someone, relax together, and yet still do exciting stuff.
14You Don’t Love Someone For Their Looks, Or Their Clothes, Or Their Fancy Car, But Because They Sing A Song Only You Can Hear.
Even if on paper they are not the perfect person for you to be with, there is just something about them that makes you love them and want to be with them forever.
15I Don’t Want Someone Who Stands Next To Me Because They Are Lonely. I Want Someone Who Stands Next To Me Because They Can’t Imagine Standing Next To Someone Else.
It is the best feeling in the world when your partner has options, could be anywhere else, and still chooses to be with you. To stand next to you and only you.
