If you can check all the signs below, then congratulations, you are in the relationship of the year. Fact is, not all relationships are created equal. In fact, some are clingy and annoying. You know, the kind who always wears matching outfits and talks about how much they love each other to the point where they sound like battery-operated dolls? But every now and then, a couple comes along that wows their friends – partnered and single alike. Everyone knows right off the beginning that the two people involved are a great match and can’t help but love them together. Are you and your mate an incredible couple? Here’s how to know for sure:
You’re both independent
Each of you has a social life outside of the relationship. You’re not a constant two-for-one situation, which means you’re each confident and secure. It’s wonderful when this happens because it’s so irritating when someone can’t be seen without their better half.
You never bash each other on social media
If you have fights, they’re done with dignity and behind closed doors. And if an argument pops up in public (which it usually never does), you agree to talk about it later, which is relieving to everyone in your presence. No one will ever see you go tit for tat on social media.
You aren’t mushy online
Too much gushing over each other on social media is annoying, although a little bit is tender and great. But the fact is when you’re an awesome couple, you explain how much you mean to each other in person, not just digitally.
You disagree sometimes
The couple that never fights or has a different point of view probably has a boring relationship. Of course, no one likes the constantly fighting couples, but two people who are secure in themselves and in their relationship can disagree but still respect each other.
You like to socialize and have fun with other people
While you don’t mind a good night on the couch, you still like to mingle amongst your friends. There’s nothing worse than the couple who never leaves their house once they’ve started dating. Secure people are comfortable at home with each other but also enjoy doing things apart.
You champion each other’s successes
People in amazing relationships applaud the other person’s triumphs and are there for each other during down moments. These are two individuals who want the other person to be strong and happy, not two insecure people each looking to do better than the other.
