Red flags have been quite well-researched in the context of relationships. But how often are green flags talked about?
After all, if there are signals that someone isn’t right for us- shouldn’t there also be signals that someone is perfect? Remember, it could be the tiniest of things that come up as a green flag.
Sometimes, it could also be things that we take for granted- regardless of the effort that comes with it. So, what are some of the green flags that one should notice in an individual- before or while they are in a relationship with them?
10 Green Flags To Look For In A Relationship
Being a good listener can be quite an attractive quality in an individual. If you can see them taking the time to listen to you, or even encourage you to express your thoughts to them- it symbolizes how much they value your opinion. Remember, a relationship is based on trust and communication. So, if you have someone that can show their vulnerable side to you- simply because they know you listen- that creates a deep foundation for your relationship.
Attuned To Their Feelings
It is a huge green flag if your partner can open up about their vulnerabilities. Just like it is important to listen, it is also important to speak out. Since it is a relationship between partners- everyone’s voice counts. A relationship can turn into paradise if both partners are able to recognize their own emotions. It becomes even more relaxed and immersive when both partners are able to confide in the other.
This should be a no-brainer. If your partner is empathetic- they know exactly what you are going through. And if you see them making things easy for you in your tough times, they are the ones for you. In fact, you can be assured that their platitudes won’t be hollow- for they feel the same that you feel. They can truly empathize with you.
Another giant green flag is finding someone who is extremely committed and devoted to the relationship. While they value their own space and your privacy, they are also pretty actively involved in the relationship. To put it simply, it doesn’t feel that they are in a relationship because they have to. Rather, it feels that they are in this relationship because they want to.
If your partner is self-aware, it is a huge green flag. They are not aimless in life or their relationship. They know exactly what they want from the relationship, and they will get it. Also, they are honest- so they won’t beat around the bush for you.
A huge green flag would be being in a relationship with someone to find that they are stable. If you are with someone who is consistent and not volatile, that can potentially translate into the best feeling ever. To put it simply, they are not unpredictable. Since they are also self-aware, they know what to do and when to do that.
Pleasant To Be Around
Being around them can be comforting, rather than suffocating. They will keep you at ease because they know their boundaries. Also, you won’t have to pretend to be someone that you are not. They like open, honest conversations.
Striving To Be Better
They are never complacent about life. In fact, they would always try to be better in what they do. You might find them learning a new language, or trying out a new dish. It could be anything- but they would want to be a better version of themselves. Also, they would encourage you to criticize them- rather than get defensive.
Space Is Important To Them
They know that you have your own life, and they will never encroach upon your ‘me-time’. They have set boundaries, which helps the relationship go at an easy pace.
The biggest green flag one can be is when they turn into someone’s comfort zone. It is as simple as it sounds- they need to trust you implicitly- and vice versa. You are willing to pull down your walls for them- and they would never judge you for it.
