Relationship Goals That Matter
Here at Psychic Mix, we are contacted by many people who are looking for love, however, one thing we have noticed is an increasing rise in unrealistic relationship goals. People seem to be striving for the “perfect relationship” while ignoring the simplest things that create a lasting relationship. When Love is so difficult to find, it seems baffling that people would impose further restrictions and requirements. We blame social media! Are you looking for love? Have you ever thought about your relationship goals? Below is a list of things we should all be striving for.
BE BEST FRIENDS
As Laura Hendrick’s poem so rightly puts it; Love is friendship set on fire. Bizarre as it may seem, we’ve heard it said many times “I love them, but I wouldn’t be friends with them” Our potential soulmate must be our best friend, someone who knows the most intricate parts of our personalities, someone who we have fun with (yes relationships are supposed to be fun!) and have a deep connection with.
ROMANCE IS NEVER DEAD
The relationships that last are the relationships that keep the romance alive. Real romance doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive, rather it should be intimate and caring. Breakfast in bed, gazing at the stars, or even the simple act of holding hands re-establishes a bond and keeps us closer, aahhh!
New experiences make us grow. Shared new experiences make the relationship grow. From a bungee jump to a simple day out and everything in between, doing things together will make us stronger. We have to want to do things with our partner, if not then what’s the point?
So you're willing to share your life with someone but not your money? Or your partner hides their finances from you? We are not saying open a joint bank account with your new bae (that would be weird!) rather share the responsibilities and be open and honest about money. You are a unit that should tackle everything together, even the bills.
IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH
This sounds kind of obvious, right? Taking care of each other when we’re sick! Unfortunately for some, this is not the case. You're a team, so when one goes down the other should instinctively take up the slack while also nursing them back to health. A simple goal that goes a long way in showing how much someone cares.
FIGHTING FOR THE TRUTH
If every time you fight there is the potential of breaking up, then unfortunately you may be on borrowed time. All couples fight however the ones that last use fighting as a way to learn. An argument shouldn’t have a winner, it should be a disagreement that eventually arrives at the truth. Also truly acknowledging you are wrong and saying that your sorry, will turn an argument into a deeper bond (are you listening men?)
PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
What is a relationship if it’s not going anywhere? If only one person is planning for the future while the other remains silent, then we are not on the same page. We must both be open about our expectations of the future and both seek to fulfill that goal
LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE
Couples that laugh together, stay together. A relationship should never be a chore, it’s fun! You must enjoy each other company and want to spend time with one another. Also as a relationship goal, we must not be afraid to show our goofy side with our partner. Why be so serious all the time? Have fun together, even if you are just sat at home watching a movie.
YOU BECOME A FAMILY
You know you are on the right track when you start being referred to as a family. When others see you as a package and you are automatically expected to be together at family events etc.
A SHOULDER TO CRY ON
If we can’t explain our worries and issues to our partner, then who can we? Equally, we should want our other half to come to us with theirs. A relationship is a partnership that protects itself and is a safe environment to unwind. If you ever think to yourself “they're too busy to hear my problems” or “I don’t want to bother them with …” then maybe this isn’t the right person for you.
Surprises shouldn’t just be for birthdays. Nothing says “I was thinking of you” more than a little surprise. Diamonds are always welcome (wink) however even the simplest of gifts show that you care. It truly is the thought that counts. It doesn’t even have to be a material item, a surprise gesture will always keep the romance alive.
WARTS AND ALL
You know you’ve made it when the real you can shine, warts and all. To be so comfortable with someone that we can be ourselves, saying and doing the thing we’d not normally do in polite society – you know what we mean!
THE SECRET LANGUAGE
One of the sweetest relationship goals is when you have developed a secret language that no one else understands. Sometimes no words are even required, only a simple look or gesture.
TRUST EACH OTHER
Imagine your partner going out with their friends and you don’t have a care in the world. Does that feel strange? If so, then your relationship may have trust issues. Constantly worrying that a partner is up to no good is the cornerstone of a failed relationship. Trust is a wonderful feeling, to know deep down that they love you and wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize that. This is a goal we should all be striving for.
