Embarking on a new romantic journey can be thrilling yet nerve-wracking, fortunately there are universal signs that indicate a relationship is headed for long-term success. Contrary to pop culture's portrayal of uncertainty in early relationships, feelings of comfort and ease with your new partner is a great sign for healthy future.

According to Los Angeles-based marriage and family therapist, Patrice Le Goy, feeling at ease to be yourself around a new partner is a clear sing of a healthy start, creating a foundation for genuine connection. Observations from loved ones affirming the happiness in the relationship also contributes to this positive foundation. While a tension-free relationship is ideal, occasional arguments are normal. After all, how partners navigate conflict reflects long-term compatibility.

Mutual respect, effective communication, and a desire to resolve conflict without negativity are key indicators of a healthy future. As relationships progress, finding a balance between spending time together and respecting individual interests is crucial. Partners who openly discuss expectation for time spent apart, reaching compromises that ensure both feel comfortable, are on the right track for a sustainable connection.

Support for each other's individual pursuits fosters a sense of security and mutual growth, strengthening the foundation for a successful long-term relationship. So as you set sail on the exciting journey of love, remember these cornerstones for a healthy and long-lasting relationship.
