for me, a perfect relationship is having love, respect, trust, patients and you are happy with your relationship...it doesn't matter about the age gap, religion you have..the most important is that you are happy and you are accepting changes with your partner..so friends, share your thoughts here..thanks in advance..have a great day..

A perfect relationship for me is for one wherein there is a meeting of minds, common interest, deep friendship, respect, acceptance and honesty.

Let us talk about relationships in general. Not only intimate relationships but relationships within family, among friends, within neighborhoods, in your work place. As you enter into any relationship, enter that relationship without expectation. Enter the relationship for the joy of giving of your strength, your self, your understanding, you wisdom, and your love to the other.

For me, there is no perfect relationship. All relationship have gone to happiness and pain, and that's what makes us accept the fact of differences. Learning to love, to be loyal, and to sacrifice is a true love. If i have this even without money, i am truly blessed. Relationships mold two person by any circumstance, that is they will grow together and accept each other.

I do not believe there is a perfect relationship. Maybe only in fairytales or in omantic movies with an happy ending. ou have to realize that in order to survive all the difficulities that there is in a relationship. I think that knowing that my partner loves me and trusts me, will be enough for the start.

i think that every relationship, be it with your friends, family or partner should be one that is built on respect. if you respect that other person, everything else follows. you have to respect that person's beliefs and know that you may have something in common but also have a lot of differences. it's not even about accepting those differences all at once, just acknowledging them is already a big start.

I think a good relationship begins with honesty and trust and then giving a partner the space to be their true self. Tolerance is very important because we have all be raised differently by our parents and we will encounter a lot of new and different characteristics in the other.

To have a lasting relationship, one must build trust, patience and respect. You must also have constant communication in order to avoid misunderstanding and gap.

I agree with you, respect, trust, love, and friendship are most important to me. Religion, age, size, looks are really not important at all. In the long term relationship it is your ability to see eye to eye that matters most.

The question of what defines the perfect relationship need not be that complicated. The perfect relationship is defined, simply, as one in which two people who want the same things from the relationship are paired with each other. That doesn't mean that what defines a perfect relationship is that both love to play baseball, and drink scotch. Nor does it mean that both love mystery novels and horror movies. What it does mean is that both enter the relationship for the same level of commitment and agreeing on the major issues.

I don't think we have a perfect relatioship in this world but you can say it's perfect when you feel that you are being trusted but your partner, being loved, not hurt nor jealous, and of course by making you feel happy with him and contented.

A perfect relationship has to deal with open and honest. That I am happy in the relationship. That my partner can trust me and let me do what i want. That is not changing me for themselves when they do not want to change them. That they do not hit me. That if we have a problem that they walk away and then come back and talk things out and figure a way to work things out. That they are there for you when you need them to be.

A perfect relationship to me is having love and trust.Age gap's do not bother me,but it would be more comfortable if we were of the same religion.

I think in a perfect relationship you need to trust other, have respect for each other, care for each other, love them for who they are without wanting to change them. I don't think it matters about the age gap either because as long as you love each other thats all that matters, no matter what anyone else thinks. Like as you said as long as they are both happy nothing else matters. Have a great day too. ~joey

Love is often complicated and misunderstood! If you choose to stay in the relationship you are in, it is because you believe that there is something worth looking forward to. There are many times in a relationship where we feel like we have met our wits end! But the one thing that makes us stay is the good times we have managed to squeeze out of the time we have put into the relationship. Nothing in this life is perfect, but then when you look at it from a different perspective it is the imperfect moments that hold the fondest memories and the best times.
