When it comes to relationships, you, like almost everyone else, have been conditioned to only look for the red flags. Taking notes of the deal breakers, and toxic things that can threaten to destroy a relationship, and your heart. But just like red flags, you also need to look for the green flags in your relationship that show that your partner is a keeper and that they are “The One” because sometimes, you need to look for the good too, you know.
Looking for the red flags early on in a relationship is something everyone does to ensure that they are with the right kind of person. But, what about looking for the green flags in a relationship? The things that will help you know that this is the person you should be with? This is the person with whom you will be able to build a happy, healthy, and satisfying relationship?
Here Are 15 Green Flags in a Relationship That Prove Your Partner Is The One
1. They understand your feelings.
You know you are with the right person when they understand or try to understand what you are going through. They might not have gone through the same thing, but they respect you and love you enough to try to understand your struggles.
Someone who unfailingly stands beside you, and tries to help you with your difficulties, no matter what is the person you should always be with.
2. They make you feel comfortable.
One of the biggest green flags in a relationship is when your partner never makes you feel uncomfortable about anything. You can always talk to them about anything you like, and they will be there with open ears and an open mind.
Anything that bothers you, you can talk to them freely, and they will be there to make sure that both of you can work through it in a healthy way, without any judgments or adverse reactions.
3. They never play games.
You know you are with the right person when they follow through with their promises and never keep you hanging. If they tell you they will call you, they will call you. If they tell you that they will meet you at 5 in the evening, they will turn up at 5 sharp.
When you are with the right person, you will never have to wonder what is going on or where you stand in the relationship; everything will be crystal clear to you.
4. They help you be a better person.
The right kind of partner will always help you become the very best version of yourself, and help you wholeheartedly in achieving your true potential. At the same time, they will also work on themselves and their flaws, and always strive to be the best partner to you and a better human being.
5. They give you space.
Being with the one you love is always something you will look forward to, but at times you might need some time for yourself too. And guess what? Your partner will never make you feel bad about it. They will understand the importance of personal space, and will always trust you and love you enough to give you that.
Giving you your space, without feeling angry or bitter about it is one of the biggest green flags there is. They will not make a big deal out of it if you choose to spend an evening or two with a friend or decide to go to sleep early, instead of watching a movie with them.
