In life, we all have to settle for something less than we desire.

But, a relationship should not be one of these things.  Everyone deserves to have a happy, healthy relationship.

A good relationship brings out the best in people, making them happier, more open, loving, and accepting.

While a bad relationship can be emotionally damaging.

Below are 8 things you deserve to have in your romantic relationship.

1. Laughter

Your partner may have a very different sense of humor than you, but they should still make you laugh and smile.

Loving someone means wanting to see them happy, so a happy relationship is normally filled with laughter and inside jokes.

2. Someone who is always excited to see you

After a few years of being with each other, you may not have butterflies in your stomach when you first see each other.  But you should still be happy and excited to see one other.

Even when you’re in a terrible mood, seeing your partner should make you feel happier.

3. Passion

Spontaneous kisses and passionate sex are a lot of fun. Even if it doesn’t happen often, you should know that your partner loves you and finds you irresistible.

4. Understanding

Maybe you cry whenever you watch romantic comedies, and maybe you like to dip your chips in melted chocolate.

Whatever little quirks you have in your personality, your partner should understand them.

Even if they don’t want to do it with you, they should understand that you are your own person with your own quirks. They should love you for every little quirk.

5. Someone who cheers you on

In a great relationship, both partners are each other’s cheerleaders, cheering each other on with every task they undertake.

It can be tough living without support, so your partner should offer you unlimited support.

6. Mutual trust

Trust is one of the most important things in a happy relationship.  Your partner shouldn’t worry that you will cheat on them, or that you will take all the money from your joint bank account and leave.

You love each other and support each other, and trust is an essential part of that.

7. Freedom

In a healthy relationship, both partners understand that they both need freedom and space from each other once in a while to see other people and do their own thing.

You are two separate people and you have your own individual lives as well as the life you have together.  Wanting to do things separately once in a while is healthy in a good relationship.

8. Open communication

Communication is one of the most important things in a relationship, and you and your partner should both feel like you can openly discuss anything with each other without fear of being dismissed.

If you can’t talk to the one person you are most intimate with, their is something very wrong in your relationship.
