Will Your Relationship Stand the Test of Time?
If you are in a new relationship, you might think it is going to be wonderful. Things don't always work out the
way we want to, though. You should evaluate the long-term stability of a new relationship so you don’t waste your
time with someone who is not your soulmate.
All relationships are different no matter how long they have been going on. Even after many years, a
relationship can change unless both people make an effort to make it work. A good relationship does not happen
without the two people in it giving their best effort to make it work.
Sure, you may have butterflies in your stomach and get that excited nervous feeling about someone you are
dating. That doesn't mean your relationship will last, though. Often, these are signs that your relationship won’t
work out. Relationships that start of so wonderful and with so much chemistry don’t often stay that way.
Often the reason a relationship does not work is that people don’t feel loved and cared for. This happens more
often than breakups over financial issues or issues that have to do with children. A new relationship should be
exciting but it should not be so exciting that you cannot keep it at that level.
You should be able to look at your relationship objectively. Look at the relationship from the outside, not the
inside. Don't bring your emotions or your partner’s emotions into the picture. You have to think about whether or
not your blissful relationship can weather the troubles that happen to all of us in daily life.
Are you willing to accept that someday your relationship will lose some of the initial passion it has currently?
If you have been worried because you don’t have one of those great love stories you hear about, you may start to
look at that as a good thing instead of thinking that you don’t have a good enough relationship. These types of
relationships are actually more likely to have long-term stability.
You can never be sure what will happen with the heart, though. Your heart is what will determine if a
relationship works or not so you have to take a close look at yours. Does your heart tell you that your partner is
the one for you forever?
It is impossible to really know your partner’s heart as well. You can look at whether or not he or she gives you
the same affection that you're giving. Also, think about how comfortable you are with your partner in every day
situations because the passion does not always last. You have to have more than passion if you want your
relationship to stand the test of time.
