SIGNS OF RELATIONSHIP COMPATIBILITY
June 03, 2018
In a new relationship and unsure of whether this could be The One? To be frank, there is no web article in the world that could answer that immensely important question in its entirety (human beings are simply too vastly complex), but there are a few universal signs that could indicate you are barking up the right tree.
Here are three sure-fire signs that you and the girl or guy you’re seeing could very well go the distance.
3 SURE-FIRE SIGNS OF RELATIONSHIP COMPATIBILITY
IT’S NOT HARD TO KEEP A CONVERSATION GOING
The first thing you need to look out for is a steady flow of conversation. Sure, there will be awkward silences at the start when you first get to know each other’s natural conversational rhythms and feel a little self-conscious, but you’ll be able to tell straight off the bat if your interests overlap at least a little.
You don’t need to be carbon-copies of one another to get along, but for a relationship to work you need to at least have interests that are in the same ballpark.
YOU FEEL SAFE
Our nervous systems and subconscious minds have developed strategies to safeguard us against potential threats over millions of years. As such, you should listen when you ‘get a bad vibe’.
If your body and subconscious is giving you the all clear and you’re feeling safe as houses, things are looking pretty rose-coloured in your relationship future.
YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE ON BOARD
The people close to you have the unique advantage of seeing a prospective partner from a partially partisan point of view, i.e. they’re far enough removed from the situation to be objective, but care enough about you to have a subjective interest as well. If your friends and family like your new partner and accept them as part of the clan without too many objections (there will always be one or two), you’re free and clear.
These are just a few of the signs that could indicate that you are in a relationship that could go the distance. The most important thing is to trust your gut!
Keep your eye on the blog in coming weeks and months on more advice on new relationships and how to keep that spark alive.
COUPLES COUNSELLING IN SANDTON
Relationships, like life, are dynamic and ever changing. In the past 15 years I have been privileged to work with many people who were brave enough to share with me what was working, and what was not working for them in their lives.
From a mentoring and counselling point of view this enabled me to rapidly identifying relational opportunities and risk; and to assist individuals and teams in finding practical constructive, pro-active and positive solutions, to excel in their personal and work relationships.
Just think, with the right support and guidance how much more can you achieve?
Precise external support can act as a catalyst by promoting positive outcomes at a rate which is much faster than you can achieve alone.
