People talk about red flags in a relationship a lot. And they should because toxic relationships can ruin our entire lives. However, today let’s talk about green flags.

What are green flags? They are signs to show you the person that you’re dating really cares about you and is invested in your relationship. The more green flags there are in your relationship, the better.

Here are 10 green flags in a relationship that show you’re dating the right person.

They notice your emotions and feelings without you telling them about them

Humans are empathetic in nature to some extent. If you really pay attention, you can tell how someone is feeling around you. Usually, toxic partners don’t really care about their partner's feelings and they continue to do whatever they want to do.

However, the right person will make sure you are comfortable all the time. If you’re always feeling safe and warm around a person, that’s a huge green flag.

They help you with your chores without you asking them for help

A good partner will always try to help with whatever you’re doing. They will help you with household chores if you’re living with them.

The right person won’t think it’s the woman’s job to cook, clean and take care of the baby. They will share all the household duties so that you’re not always tired and busy.

They will share the bigger slice with you

This may not seem like a big deal but if someone’s willing to share the bigger slice of pizza with you, that’s clearly an indication that they admire you a lot.

It may just seem like a little thing but in healthy relationships, it’s the little things that make a difference.

They communicate their feelings

Humans are not mind readers. When someone is mad or angry at you but they don’t tell you why, the relationship can quickly become toxic. A healthy partner doesn’t keep you in the dark. If they don’t feel like talking to you at the moment, they’ll clearly tell you so you’re not worried.

If they’re angry at you, they’ll sit down and have a chat with you to resolve their issues. And you should do the same too.

They are interested in your interests

It’s okay if you’re partner doesn’t enjoy watching chick flicks every night with you. However, if you’re always doing things that only your partner enjoys, it clearly means they are selfish and don’t really care about you.

The right person will respect your interests even if they are not theirs. They will support you to pursue those interests even if they don’t always understand them.

They discuss their past with you

I used to date a guy who would never share what was going on in his life with me. I used to find that mysterious but it quickly got annoying when I found out why he was not sharing his past with me. He was a serial cheater and had cheated on all his previous girlfriends, the girlfriends he used to call ‘crazy’.

In any healthy relationship, partners share their past with each other because that helps them understand each other better. If they’re not sharing their past with you, they probably don’t see a future together with you.

They are not hung up on their past relationships

Rebound dating is more common than many people realize. Some people date just to get over their exes and use their partners as a distraction. They are not serious about who they’re dating and are likely only dating them for a few weeks before they can go find someone else.

If they are serious about you, they won’t miss their exes. They would have completely gotten over their breakup and are ready to fully focus on you and your relationship.

They are financially stable

A lot of women are forced to think that if they are looking for financially stable partners, they are gold-diggers. That’s not true at all!

While it may seem romantic to love your partner no matter what happens, it’s not practical to date such a person. I am not asking you to leave your partner if they have taken out loans or are struggling financially at the moment.

I am asking you to reevaluate your relationship if your partner constantly makes poor financial choices and spends their money on impractical purchases.

Their friends are good people

My grandmother once told me that we are the sum of our friendships and I truly believe in that. If your partner’s friends are rude and offensive, that is not a good sign at all.

Good people surround themselves with other good people. Your partner’s friends should be nice to you and treat you like their friend too.

They make you laugh

They don’t have to be a standup comedian and have their own Netflix special. However, it feels really nice to have inside jokes with your partner. A good partner wants to make you happy, your smile makes their entire day. If you can laugh with them, you can almost survive anything with them.

If you’re stuck in a toxic relationship, it’s possible to move on and finally find your happiness once again. If you need help with this, I have the perfect course for you.

That Girl is successful. She is happy and she knows what she wants from life. She accomplishes her goals and lives exactly the kind of life you want to live. It’s possible to become ‘That Girl’. Although it won’t happen in just one day but slowly you can make small changes to become her.

Here are 10 simple steps you can take toward living the life you deserve to live.

1. Stop Eating Junk Food Too Much

You know how they say you are what you eat? They’re completely right. If you’re always eating deep-fried and oily food, you’re not going to feel your best self. Those chips, pizzas and burgers may sound delicious in the moment but if that is all what you eat, then that’s a problem.

Include green vegetables and fruits in your diet. Try to drink enough water. Avoid mindless snacking throughout the day. If you feel hungry, eat bigger meals instead.

But don’t take this step to the extreme and give yourself an eating disorder. Maintain balance and include everything in your diet.

2. Go On A Walk Every day

It may not be easy for you to get dressed in your fitness gear and hit the gym every day. However, going on a walk every day is not that difficult. You don’t even have to walk for too long. Even a ten-minute walk in a nearby park can help you feel better.

To make sure you feel motivated to go on a walk, invest in some athletic outfits that you’d feel excited to wear.

3. Get That Bold Haircut You’ve Always Wanted

Your haircut can literally change how you look and feel about yourself. If you want to change the way you look, getting a haircut is a great way to do that.

Don’t be afraid to try something different. If you’ve always had long hair and want to go for a shorter cut, go for it. It’s just hair. If it gets messed up, it’ll grow back in a few weeks.

4. Ask That Person Out On A Date

Life is too short to spend wondering if they like you or not. Why would you just sit in your bed and scroll through their Instagram pictures when you can just text them and ask them out on a date?

What’s the worst that could happen? They’ll say no? That would just give you the sign to move on and find someone else to crush on. If they say yes, congrats! You’re dating your crush now.

5. Introspect

Look, it doesn’t matter how many smoothies you are drinking and how difficult your workouts are. If you’re not going to take care of all the things going through your head, you’re going to continue being unhealthy.

Take some time out to think about your day and your life. Think about all your failed friendships and relationships and learn from them. If you need help with this step, I have the perfect courses for you.

6. Wear A Perfume Everyday

Now this may sound a little bit eccentric but trust me, wearing perfume even on the days you don’t go out will make you feel special. Usually, most people save their perfumes for only special occasions but if there’s anything the last few months has taught us, it’s that any day can be your last.

You never know what might happen. So just wear that expensive perfume today even if you’re going to stay in bed all day.

7. Document Your Life

Make TikToks. Post on Instagram. Write long Facebook posts. Tweet every time something good happens to you. Write in your journal.

Document your life so that one day you can look back and admire all the amazing moments you’ve lived through.

8. Take Yourself On a Solo Date

Want to try out a new restaurant but don’t have anyone to take you there? Why wait around? Dress up and take yourself there. It can be a great way to spend time with yourself while eating good food.

If you’re on a budget, you can just make a sandwich at home and go for a picnic in a park.

9. Mind Your Own Business

Gossip and drama may sound fun in the moment but focusing on yourself and your life is so much better. Stop hanging out with friends who only want to say negative things about other people. Surround yourself with people who believe in spreading positivity.

10. Live For Yourself

Stop doing things to please your social media followers or your parents and your friends. Start doing things you enjoy doing. It’s your life and the only person whose opinion should matter is you.

I recently watched a movie called The Sound of Metal. If you’ve not watched that movie, I highly recommend that you do. There’s this one quote from the movie that has stuck with me.

All I want you to do is just sit. All I ask is if and when you cannot just sit, you turn yourself to the pen and paper that I’m gonna supply for you. And I want you to write.

Doesn’t matter what you write, how you write, whether it’s spelled correctly. Or if it’s just a big mess. I don’t care. No one will read it, okay? But I want you to keep writing continuously without stopping until you feel like you can sit again.

The movie is about a drummer who begins to lose his hearing. Understandably, this is a very difficult experience for him and he is asked to process his loss by just sitting alone in peace and writing.

But why writing?

The world has changed a lot in recent years. We are asked to continuously be productive and when we are not being productive, we are asked to indulge in self-care. We are almost never not still. We never sit with our thoughts and just think.

I think that’s quite sad.

When was the last time you sat idly and just let your thoughts run wild? When was the last time you just let yourself be? When you didn’t care about accomplishing a task or fulfilling your goals? You just sat and let the time pass you by.

The truth is most of us don’t do this often enough. We are always rushing, we are always in the pursuit of something. The self-help gurus have convinced us that we should always be hustling and thriving.

I personally think that just sitting by yourself and not doing anything is an underrated way of enjoying our lives. And this is where writing comes into the picture.

I believe that we should all be writers.

No, I am not asking you to write a novel every year or a blog post every day. I am also not asking you to get a degree in English literature or creative writing. You can study or work wherever you want and still be a writer.

All I am asking you to do is sit with a blank paper and pen and just let yourself be.

Writing is something that you can fit in your life even if you’re busy all the time. Are you a working professional and don’t have too much time? Just write 5 lines about how busy you are before you go to bed.

Are you a student who’s fed up with online classes and staring at screens all day? Take a break and spend some time with a blank paper and pen.

There are different reasons why people write.

Some people write to communicate

Writing was definitely invented for the purpose of communication. With any act of writing, the writer is either trying to communicate something to another person such as through a letter, or even to oneself as a list of things to do, for example.

Some people write to express opinions

Most of us have opinions about a wide variety of things. And writing has always been one of the best ways to express our opinions and influence others into our way of thinking. No, you don’t always have to shout them out on social media. Sometimes you can just keep your opinions to yourself and write about them in your personal diary.

Some people write to release emotions

Love, hate, anger, frustration, happiness, contentment. Writing enables you to capture your emotions at their strongest and translate them into creative works. Therapeutic, soothing and satisfying, the written word has been taken to great heights through sublimation.

Some people write to share oneself

Just as we enjoy talking about ourselves and our experiences, we also enjoy writing about our lives and times! Just as personal diaries make interesting reading, opening out your life to a reader is an exciting experience, for you and your audience.

Some people write to describe an event or a feeling

Ever been driven to write right after a birthday party, or a rainy day? Every day events and feelings are great stimulators of creativity, especially because it gives you the chance to turn a mundane tale into something extraordinary!
