4. THEY LISTEN TO YOU
In a conversation with your SO, have you ever had the feeling that you’re just talking at a brick wall? If your partner makes you feel like that, that’s a sign that they don’t respect or care for what you have to say. A committed partner listens carefully to you and replies accordingly – they don’t just wait for you to finish so that they can say their bit. If they really listen and engage, that’s a good sign that they have a lot of respect for you.
5. THEY’RE PROUD OF YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS
A good, respectful SO will know the goals you set for yourself – physically, emotionally, professionally, academically, etc. – and they’ll support you on your way to them. Once you achieve those goals, your partner will be obviously proud of you, and maybe even talk about your great achievements to their friends. That’s a sign that they truly care about your development as a person and your personal happiness.
