The best relationships are those that are for free

06 October 2014, 19:35 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The best things are usually freely given. Relationships are freely entered into but they can just be costly especially in terms of wasted time. In a relationship, how do you know that you to have a chance at being long-term. I have said chance because at times, things just do not work out the way you would like them to and you look back then you wonder how it all went wrong because it seemed great. It might have seemed great but maybe underneath it just wasn’t because you were both on egg shells.

You Laugh

Most women want a guy with a sense of humor, but does she have a sense of humor too. You need to be able to laugh with your man. It is never that serious. At times he may have forgotten the most important thing to you or he may say something that does not please you. Do not jump the gun and be all angry. Take a step back, breathe, there may be some hilarity in the situation. Laughter is healthier than anger too. When you are also constantly angry, you create room for resentment as compared to how much more the other person will see how understanding you are when you look at their fibs with a sense of humour.

Can you be quiet?

At times there is no need to fill the silence with incessant chatter. When you can both be silent in each other’s company and the other does not feel like you are either mad at them or you are holding something back. You are just quiet because you are comfortable in your own thoughts and there is no need to say a word. Then you are secure in your relationship. That breeds long-term as compared to the opposite where there is some constant chatter in the background since there is a commercial break.

No grudges

The worst relationships for anyone can be those that the other partner keeps bringing back a past argument to justify the current argument. Does not matter if you are trying to drive a point home, but going backward always just means no forward ever. It also just becomes annoying. Healthy relationships are those you resolve issues first because it is in the here and now and you move on. That straightforward.

Understanding them

Sometimes it is never about opposites attracting but how good you understand your partner’s character and habits. There expectations and goals. How they look at things as compared to how you would want them to. Then finding and creating a balance for the both of you. You are able to by-pass petty misunderstandings and fore-go constant rifts as to why they are not as you would like them to be.

You are both open

When you can tell your partner that they are being stupid because they are or their idea is not as good as they think it is, without fear of recrimination or anger then you are on your way to relationship sublime and bliss.
