What is a healthy relationship?

A healthy relationship is a relationship that allows people to feel connected and supportive of each other, but still being independent. There are many signs of a healthy relationship but there are two major components of a healthy relationship: "The Boundary" and "Communication"

Boundaries, boundaries

The people involved in a relationship should have a boundary between what to keep to themselves and what to share. The other person should respect that privacy and don't tread over that thin line. This creates trust between partners. Now please stop whining about her going to the bathroom without you. PRIVACY PLEASE. This is very important for a healthy relationship. Talk to your partner about what you are comfortable doing and what you are not as comfortable doing.

"It's a fine line between love and hate"

Communication

If you want to have a healthy relationship, you need discuss and talk things out with your partner. Support them when needed and placate them when they are sad or depressed. Tell them about what they can do to improve and in turn, they can tell you what you can do. Tell your partner things that you are concerned about if you want to. This makes your partner feel helpful and thankful because they think you trust them enough to tell them that.

The "DOs" and DON'Ts" of a healthy relationship

DO settle arguments in a way that can benefit both of you, if possible. Try to make a compromise!

DON'T force your partner to do everything you want to do.

DO protect and defend your partner, whether from harsh words or physical harm.

DON'T be TOO attached to your partner. Let him or her have their privacy. Don't follow her into the bathroom and hack their email so you can read all their messages.

DO remember to say the following words often

1. "I love you"

2. "I'm sorry"

3. "Thanks so much!"

DON'T skip important events that mean a lot to your partner. At least TRY to remember her mom's birthday.
