Obviously, once you are in a relationship for long enough, is no longer about you or him but your mutual experience in that relationship.

“I find that if your partner shares your values, everything else is negotiable,” zen psychotherapist Michele Paiva tells Bustle.

Common values need to add up in a relationship, things like finance, religion, sex or politics just to name a few. Fun is also needed, many people can’t stand a boring relationship, a good sense of humour will do both of you good.

If you are both looking into settling for a long term relationship, have compassion, respect, empathy, patience, flexibility and openness. Regardless of how small they are, little things do matter in relationships they can either build or break your relationship.

A relationship is not like a walk in a park if you want it to work between you, you have to work hard to make it work and it is the same story if you want it to last longer.
