There are many different types of relationships that may fit any person at any time. Our personal background effects what partners we choose and which relationship we fall into. The number one most sought after relationship, is obviously a healthy one. This healthy relationship gives respect, love, faithfulness, honesty and so much more. If this is the type of relationship that you want, you have to be aware at all times what you are doing and how you can improve yourself and how you can make your relationship work better. Also keep in mind that knowing what you want out of life is very important.

Many Different Types Of Relationships

You have the survival relationship which basically means that you feel like you can’t survive without someone on their own. Most of the time people get into these relationships because they feel lonely. This relationship is not a choice made on love, but a choice that is made by the feeling that being with someone will somehow make them feel complete or more important in some way.

You then have the type of relationship that is based off of validation. These relationships exist to make someone feel better about themselves. They constantly seek validation from their partner in every aspect of their lives. Being validated to some means feeling accomplished and that they are doing something right. It’s more important that they feel validated rather than loved. A relationship based off of validation can only go so far before one person decides that they want a connection on a deeper level.

We all have the friends that have been in a relationship together since high school that went on to continue the relationship through college. They may have even gotten married before college and followed the path that was set for them by their families or because they thought it was the logical thing to do. This relationship is known as a scripted relationship. To most, this type of relationship is what they crave. Just because their outer appearance may look perfect, doesn’t mean that they have the best relationship. Sometimes this type of relationship is performed because it’s what they think is the right and next respectable step in their life. Now, just because it may seem scripted, doesn’t mean that they aren’t happy together, it simply means they chose a different path.

Always remember that the most sought after relationship is the kind that is based on love, commitment, trust, understanding, respect and so much more.

One other type of relationship is the assertion relationship. This is when you focus on each others needs and helping each other reach their potentials. You also show your appreciation for each others’ differences and encourage each others’ individualities.

Every Successful Relationship Should Be Based On Happiness
