Talk about healthy relationships

Extracted from original article.

Here are some interesting questions:

- What couples who are in healthy relationships do?
- What couples who would like to be in healthy relationships can do to build and maintain those relationships that last a lifetime?

And here are some interesting pointers:
1. Lookout for the "four horsemen of the apocalypse" for daters.

- Criticism

- Defensiveness

- Contempt

- Stonewalling (shutting down communication)

2. The foundation of the successful relationship "house" is built on friendship and sharing both fondness and admiration for each other.

- To maintain a healthy, happy relationship, couples of all types - whether they're dating or married - should try to establish a close friendship and be willing to accept influences from each other.

- When you're accepted for who you are and appreciated and respected, trust builds and the relationship flourishes.

3. Look for these key elements in your interactions with your love interest.

- Each of you is genuinely interested each others' day-to-day lives, dreams, goals, likes/dislikes, and so on.

- You ask each other open-ended questions, prompting for more information and details.

- You show signs of affection like smiling, laughing, touching, holding hands, etc.

4. Interacting positively is also a crucial component of any successful romance.

- Approach the conflict calmly and with empathy.
- Talking about your feelings, not the other person's actions.
- Avoiding making accusations.

5. To maintain any relationship, both people have to put in the effort to make the other person feel safe, happy and most of all, loved.
