Someone once said that when love is good, it’s easy. I don’t know about all that, but your relationship definitely shouldn’t feel like a chore. When you’re with a man who is good for you, things just seem to flow. Most of the time it’s because he’s giving you what you need without you having to ask. And that’s the mark of a good partner.
Rough patches in a relationship usually come about when you need something that he can’t or won’t give. Then the arguments start. And if you’re struggling to get basic needs met in your relationship, you might need to prepare yourself to move on.
Some gentlemen are rough around the edges, and no relationship is completely free of drama. But if you have to fight for these basic necessities, the rest of your relationship is probably going to be an uphill battle.
A good romantic partner doesn’t make you beg for his time.
If you have to ask, “Why am I always calling you?” then he’s clearly not as interested in the relationship as he should be.
You shouldn’t have to fish for them.
And not just when things are headed to the bedroom. Even a man who’s not into PDA will still find a way to show you some TLC.

In a healthy relationship, a good partner naturally tries to understand where you’re coming from — even if he suggests another point of view.
He understands that you need a night out with your friends — without texting you a dozen times to find out “Where you at?”
Even before the official talk about where things might be headed, the right kind of prospective partner gives you the feeling that they can protect you.
A healthy relationship doesn’t leave you with a sneaking suspicion that something is up.
A good partner keeps your pleasure in mind without you having to always remind him that you’re in the bedroom too.
It’s normal to get on each other’s nerves every now and then when things are done that you don’t like or agree with. But healthy relationships are built on forgiveness, not holding grudges.
Whether it’s an unexpected cup of coffee (just the way you like it), or a date to a movie he thinks you’ll love, a good partner pays attention to what you’re into — and tries to deliver at least occasionally.
REMEMBERING IMPORTANT THINGS
If you constantly have to remind him of the important things you’ve shared with him — like the fact that you have a sister, or you’re allergic to peanuts — it might be a sign that he’s not interested enough to pay attention.
When you struggle with an issue, he shouldn’t shrug his shoulders and leave you to deal with it alone. He might not have all the answers but he should be there to help give you direction.
If you have to ask him to do the “good” basics — like return your messages and remember your birthday — you’re wasting your time.
