Communication is a vital part in building a healthy relationship. The first step is making sure you both want and expect the same things.

Other important things to consider are;

  • Respect

Feeling valued is important. Respecting each other’s need for space is essential in ensuring that you keep your own identity.

  • Trust

Having confidence to be apart from your partner and not worrying about where they are or who they are with.

  • Compromise

Disagreements are a normal part of a relationship. Finding a way to end the disagreement is about you both being able to compromise.

  • Support

Encourage and reassure your partner. A healthy relationship is about building each other up, not putting each other down.

  • Boundaries

Going out with your friends without your partner and participating in activities you like are essential. Not sharing passwords to your social media accounts or mobile phone.
