If You Don’t Feel These 12 Ways In Your Relationship, It’s Not Meant To Be Forever

1. Butterflies

Everyone knows that somewhat sickening feeling when butterflies take flight in your stomach, signifying that your little heart is attracted to another person. If you don’t feel any butterflies when you’re with this person (especially in the beginning), you may not be so into them.

2. Anticipation

It doesn’t matter if it’s been a day since you’ve seen them, or three weeks. When a relationship is strong, you should feel some sort of eagerness to see them again.

3. High

Being in love is a drug that is more potent than anything else. It’s expected to feel a little out of control when you are with someone you love dearly.

4. Nervous

Nerves are just a part of life. It’s normal to feel a little worried when you don’t hear from your significant for a few days, or when they tell you those dreaded words, ‘we need to talk’, no matter how strong the relationship is.

5. Exposed

You’ve put everything on the line. You’ve given them your all and you’ve shown them who you are (including all your ugly parts.) Feeling exposed should be an essential part of a great relationship because you are constantly learning new things about one another.

6. Frustrated

No matter how tight knit a couple can be, being frustrated is healthy. A forever relationship is not a calm one all the time, and it shouldn’t feel picture perfect all the time.

7. Confident

Relationships are all about supporting one another and lifting your partner up. You’re supposed to feel confident when you are with them, no matter what you are wearing or what you look like.

8. Lucky

When you are with your significant other, and when you talk about them, your eyes should light up when you mention their name. You should be feeling like the luckiest person in the world that you found one another.

9. Supported

When you’re in a great relationship, you should be feeling supported by your partner. You should be feeling incredibly comfortable and encouraged to be the best person you can be in the relationship and on your own too.

10. Calm

There is no better feeling in the world then feeling at peace and content in yourself and in who you are with. Great relationships should bring you a sense of calm that you have finally found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.

11. Appreciated

In a forever relationship, feeling appreciated is essential for both people. Just a simple ‘thank you for doing that’ can make your day and in a relationships, the little things truly do matter.

12. Ridiculous

The best relationships are where you can get incredibly silly and weird with each other. When you have found your forever person, singing at the top of your lungs and making the most vulgar dance moves are a routine for you. And you wouldn’t want to be this ridiculous and crazy with anyone else. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
