Either you have been in more than one relationship or you must have witnessed or heard about people having different experiences from seemingly similar relationships.
Choice of your partner determines the quality of your relationship
Relationships depend on the people you have them with.
If your partner is selfish, ignorant, unfaithful, then the relationship will feel like a wet blanket getting heavier by the passing minute; however, if one’s partner is kind, understanding, caring, and loving, the same relationship will feel like heaven sent at the time of anarchy.
Ever wonder why is that so?
We look for a partner to complete us
No one is perfect or complete, we spend our lives trying to find for that ‘special someone’, the search is just because we have this carnal need to be complete.
We want someone to take us as close as it is possible to that level of completion. In one’s initial days of any relationship it is next to impossible to predict one’s future but with time, as you get to know partner, you’d find that prediction will come easily if you keep a rational mind.
If you have found your match, someone that completes you and makes you happy, no matter the circumstances, go for it.
However, even if for a moment you think that you are not compatible anymore, have an honest conversation with your partner and pick a side that will be better suited for the both of you.
We have tried to mention eight most basic types of relationships most noted by couples:
1. The one with the interdependent
The relationship where both are in harmony with each other. They respect each other’s authority, decision, and space. They enjoy each other’s company and put an equal amount of effort, though they do face slight ups and downs they always rise above.
Taking full responsibility that this kind of relationship is a rare find.
2. The one with the sacrificer
The relationship in which the only one of the two puts all the effort required in a relationship.
Basically, they are trying to win a lost battle. They are the ones who are doing whatever is needed to be done, they are sacrificing their health, time, mental state to cover up for their partner.
3. The one with the control-freak
The relationship where one of the pairs likes to assert control over their partner.
They have this carnal need to be in the loop of everything their partner does. They want to be the witness of every meagre day-to-day activity of their partner.
They want to be the ones to decide what is supposed to be done by their partners, whom they should meet, what they should wear, so on and so forth.
4. The one with the abuser
This relationship is the worst of all. Here the partner tries to overdo their control and in desperate need they become abusive.
Either mental or physical abuse, both are equally bad. If you find yourself in any of the two situations, get out. You may try to fool yourself into thinking that it was a one-time thing only, no matter how much your partner apologizes, if they did it once, they will do it again.
5. The one who lives away
In this day and age, people find themselves in contact with and later drawn to people who are living oceans away from them.
Sometimes, unknowingly, they get romantically attracted to someone who is not easily accessible to them. In such cases, very few couples are able to rise from the other side. We witness a lot of relationships deteriorating because either for one reason or other couples break things off due to long distance.
6. The one with the insecurities
One of the best things that you can give your partner is your trust.
When one gives their partner trust one expects that as well. Every relationship, be it a friendly one or family, is based on trust. If you cannot overcome your insecurities enough to give breathing room to your partners, sooner or later things will start to feel suffocating.
7. The one with the trophy partner
The term trophy partner means that you are only in the relationship because you want to show your partner off and have zero to none emotional connection with them.
In such cases, people, usually, start to get unfaithful and they drift off. Marriage is a contract for life, if you are not committed for the long haul or if you have done so for any purpose in mind or half-heartedly, you will get exhausted.
8. The one with the negotiator
Compromises are good and part of every relationship, however, if you start to notice that there have been one too many compromises, it means that there is no longer anything common between the two of you. Perhaps it is time to re-evaluate.
