“Date someone that will say to you, “let’s figure out where we went wrong,” instead of acting like a child and ignoring your texts.”
Mature love takes a lot of work from both partners and is not perfect, but if you are looking for a deep and meaningful relationship, it is well worth it.
A relationship built with mature love has the following 5 key ingredients:
1.Individuality. Just because you have found your true love doesn’t mean that you should stop living the life you had before them. It is important to keep doing the things you were interested in such as hobbies and hanging out with friends.
2. Respect. Both partners respect each other for who they are. This is important because when your partner respects you, it makes you feel safe and able to open up to them on a deeper level.
3. Responsibility. In a mature relationship, both partners will admit when they do something wrong and will do what they can to make it right or learn from their mistake.
4. Open Communication. It is essential to take the time to communicate with each other daily. Make sure you listen when your partner is talking to you. Communicating with your partner should be a priority and never brushed off. You want to date someone that will say to you, “let’s figure out where we went wrong,” instead of acting like a child and ignoring your texts.
5. Increased Self-Esteem. In mature love you are not in competition with each other, but rather the opposite. Your partner wants you to succeed and will help to build you back up if you fail. They make you feel happier and more confident in yourself. They actually make you a better person.
Conclusion: In a mature relationship both partners love each other unconditionally and do not focus on any imperfections or past resentments. 5 key ingredients to their relationship are individuality, respect, responsibility, open communication and increased self-esteem. Just remember, even mature love takes work and isn’t perfect, but it is well worth it!
