    What do you consider a healthy relationship?

    I would like to hear from male and females in what they consider a healthy relationship.

    Two living, thinking, breathing people going out with each other, doing things with each other, thinking of the other when they are apart, who both enjoy these activities and who both enjoy being with each other.
    Tapping a keyboard to send little electronic symbols flickering across a TV monitor somewhere out there and receiving similar symbols back, may be fun and interesting, and may, with intelligence and care, lead to a meeting that leads to a real relationship, until then it's just electronic messages and nothing more.  The same can be said for the old method of writing with pen and paper to unmet penfriends.

    Great question, kitten. I'd say a relationship in which both parties have a strong curiosity to deeply understand, connect with, and care for the other. And both show a stronger interest in knowing where the other is coming from through their struggles than their interest in defensing themselves, being oppositional, controlling, and so on. But also with both partners being open and vulnerable with each other about who they are and what they feel regularly, to a deep degree.

    Add to this that there needs to be a mutual willingness to allow the other to be himself and herself--to be separate beings and let each other evolve however their spirits naturally do.

    And, in romantic relationships, of course... the sexual desire needs to be present... not expected at the intensity it was during the courting phase when there were all those additional hormones flaming up and all. But still some occasional fire.

    This was a good thing for me to be contemplating tonight. Thank you for asking.

    I think a healthy relationship has some basic characteristics that are fundamental. These include respect, trust, loyalty. Also there needs to be shared power, shared decision making,  sharing of chores. Open and honest communication goes a long way because you need to be able to repair the relationship when you have a blowout.
    Carrying resentment is the biggest way to undermine your relationship. Sort out your issues. Don't let them fester.
