Things to look out for to test the compatibility between the two of you as a couple

type of conversation and communication the two of you have
I once told a story about two couples I
watched while I was out and they barely said a word two each other the whole
four hours I was sitting beside them. There is a comfortable silence and then
there is that silence where a couple is not sure what else they can talk about.
If you have communication issues early in the relationship, unless you solve
them, they do not disappear.
respect and trust
Everything else, builds up from that. It
cannot be one person has more than the other or the other one does not feel the
need to give that to the other partner. If you cannot respect your partner no
matter the situation they ever find themselves in, it will get worse and ouch
other areas of your relationship.
passion and intimacy
They say that sex is not everything; then
wait until you are fully committed to someone and one of you is dissatisfied.
Just see how it plays out. You need that compatibility as a couple because the
minute one feels neglected and the other one overwhelmed; something will have
to give and it normally never ends up with everyone being happy.
