In order for any type of partnership to work, both individuals in it need to be excellent listeners, they need to carry their own weight, they need to put the good of the partnership before the good of the individual, they need to be patient, they need to be willing to compromise, and they even need to occasionally carry the weight for both people when one is feeling down and exhausted. A romantic partnership is no different. I realized recently that my partner and I really are a team. When we go into any situation, I know that the decisions he makes and behaviors he exhibits will benefit both of us. I know that he always has both of us in mind when he does just about anything. And I do the same for him. It’s a pretty amazing feeling. Here are signs you and your partner really are a team.


You don’t allow negative self-talk

If your partner tries to talk down to himself or criticize himself harshly, you put a stop to that immediately. And he does the same when you’re hard on yourself. You stop your partner from bullying himself essentially, and he does that for you.
