You probably don’t love the idea of being “normal.” After all, isn’t it better to be above-average in terms of smarts, looks and success? But sometimes normal is exactly what you need — reassurance that you’re not alone in an experience. Such is the case with romantic relationships. Do you ever wonder how yours stacks up against others?

Wellness entrepreneur Chrisanna Northrup worked with two of America’s top sociologists, Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Dr. James White, to write The Normal Bar. Nearly 100,000 respondents around the world were surveyed about their relationships, from their behaviors to how happy they were. By studying the results, you can see not only how your relationship compares, but also how small changes could improve it. Below are 10 signs your relationship is “normal,” when compared to those of other Americans. Not good, not bad, just normal.
