People are constantly complaining about being in a relationship. Women and Men alike....some of the most common are: "I miss my freedom" "He/She does not do (fill in the blank) right" "Lack of trust...cheating" "Bad Hygine" "No Conversation" "Party Animal" "Irresponsible" "Possessive" .........................the list goes on and on...What are the positive things you truly VALUE about being in a relationship with someone you care about or love? Take a second to think about it....maybe later you can share your opinion with the person you care about or love.... For me it is trust. I value being able to trust the man I am with, there is nothing like it. I can tell him anything and we talk about everything. That is very special to me. Being able to open up and just be myself...

The most valuable part of a relationship for me is having someone to go through life with- someone who understands my pain, shares my joy, and basically is there with me through everyhting that i go through. Also, being there for them in the same way. Also, just being yourself with someone. No reservations about "oh i'll look dumb" or "oh, he will think this or that..." I love the fact that you can be complete dorks together and there is no one judging anyone. Not in a good relationship anyways. :]

TRUST is one big factor in any relationship,it makes you survive the entire day looking forward to the time you'd be together and share to each other what transpired within the day. I'm quite a busy person and i won't really appreciate it if my partner will call me every now and then just to check on me because if he really trusts me then he should know better. LOVE ofcourse is very essential as well, as they always say it blinds you from the negative traits of your partner which i think is somehow true.It makes you love and appreciate the other person despite of...

I don't think I can put a label to one thing, I think it's a combination of aspects of a relationship. I LOVE that I can share everything with someone and be so comfortable with them. I love that my guy is my best friend as well as a lover. So if you could find one word for being best friends while also having a romantic relationship that works then that's mine. Hahaha. Though I guess that would just be describing love in general. I guess I can't get more specific.

I value commitment made between us. It's not easy to make such a relationship to tie us together. So I must appreciate our choice and try to keep it as long as I can. :)

for me I value loyalty and dedication. As long as I can see that he is really commited and sincere as my partner then that for me is loyalty. I can be assured that when I am not around he can be in bars but will surely still be mine and wont cheat behind my back. Trust is something you earn from you partners loyalty. And lastly would be dedication to make our relationship work. I can work ever aspect of the relationship but if he.she is not as dedicated as I am. for me thats useless efforts.

Relationship is related to the ego of those who are involved. Relationships between two people is 100% ego divides into two parts that balance (ideally each 50%). That is, each person must reduce his ego, so that a harmonious relationship. This is easy to say, but difficult to be implemented.
