And what about if you argue quite a lot? The key to any successful relationship is compromise, says Kate Moyle, relationship psychotherapist and host of The Sexual Wellness Sessions podcast.

The way you are able to compromise and negotiate with a partner should be a key indicator of how well suited you are. If you find it easy to meet in the middle when you are in disagreement about something, you know your partner is a keeper.

The right person for you will empower you to be your most confident self, says dating coach James Preece. A good partner wants you to be happy and not to doubt yourself.

A good partner will listen attentively to everything you have to say, regardless of how boring it might seem to you. In fact, sometimes it helps to have completely different ones — it gives you something to talk about.

Are you with the right person?

But Preece stresses that if you want a long-term relationship with someone, you must make sure you are both going in the same direction in terms of your life goals and your core values. It might be your views on children, where you want to live, or simply how you choose to live your life. Arguments are not necessarily a bad thing in a relationship.

In fact, depending on how you handle them, they can be integral to the longevity of a partnership, says Moyle. This shows you are celebrating each other as individuals, Moyle explains, and is good practice for being able to discuss life challenges and situations that will arise.

Are you with the right person?

When you are with the right person, there is no judgment, says Preece. But attention plays a big part in forming meaningful connections.
