CEBU CITY, Philippines— In traffic, green means go.
And in a relationship, one always looks for green flags to make sure that he or she is in the right relationship or is with the right partner.
Here, let this be your guide in detecting the green flags in your relationship:
Words and action align— you want to be in a relationship where the person walks what he or she preaches. Because words won’t make the cut, actions should go along with it too.
Seen, felt, and heard— in a relationship you should be able to feel that you are seen, felt, and heard. Not just superficially, but emotionally and mentally.
Communicates clearly— this is the trick to a good relationship, keeping the lines open and being able to know how to respond than to react. Keep the lines open especially when it comes to resolving conflicts.
Growing together— if you are in a relationship where you are each other’s cheerleaders, then stay in it. Make the most of that relationship.
Keep you connected with others— if the person you are dating puts priority in your connection with your family, friends, and others, he or she is a keeper.
Green flags serve as our guide in making decisions to allow ourselves to let our hearts skip a beat for this person. /dbs
