7 Signs of a Mature Relationship

Relationships portrayed on television and in movies almost always have a spark of drama woven in, giving many young couples the idea that without some sort of constant conflict or drama, the relationship has gone stale. But, ask any couple who has been together for a long time, and you’re likely to hear that once the drama dies down and the relationship matures, life together as a couple becomes anything but boring! Has your relationship hit the point of maturity? Below are seven signs that you’ve definitely taken your relationship to the next level!

7. Being Together Comes Easily

If you’ve moved past the point of uneasiness and forced conversation (trying desperately to hide your inner awkward self) to the point where being together is just easy, that’s a sure sign your relationship has matured. In a mature relationship, there’s no pretense or need to put on a show for the other person, and being yourself around him is as easy as being by yourself. Everything begins to feel natural and laid-back, which allows you both to truly enjoy each other’s company.

6. You’re Okay With Being Apart Sometimes

In the early days of dating, being apart probably felt like pure torture, and neither one of you could wait to be curled up in each other’s arms again. As your relationship matures, however, you’ll start to feel okay with a little time apart. You may even start to look forward to the occasional alone time! It’s not that you don’t miss each other, but being apart just doesn’t feel as dramatic as it did during that honeymoon phase of dating. This is actually a good thing, and allows both of you to go off and explore interests and hobbies freely and independently. But, don’t worry – reuniting will still be just as sweet as it always was!

5. You’re Not Trying to Change Each Other

In a mature relationship, both partners accept their significant other for who they actually are, without a secret desire (or even need) to change each other. That’s not to say your sweetie won’t have a few (or a lot) of annoying habits you’d love to see disappear forever, but you’ve both reached a point in the relationship where you truly love each other for exactly who each of you are as individuals – both the good and the bad.

4. You Balance Each Other

In a brand new relationship, you may have a tendency to agree with everything your beau says and does, but as your relationship matures, you’ll find you actually balance each other out nicely, especially when you’re willing to disagree from time to time. Being honest and truthful becomes more important than giving lip service, and the occasional objection can actually serve to create a sense of balance. For example, if your partner is always quick to judge, your tendency to carefully consider facts before reaching a conclusion could prove helpful on several occasions, and vice versa. Finding that balance between you is a sure sign of a more mature relationship.
