Oftentimes, the part of intimate relationships that gets the most attention is the part where we search for it, we find it, we lose it, we grow, and we search for it again. It’s as if “love” only exists in these tiny spaces at the beginnings and ends of relationships.
But, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Love takes on a different form once the dust settles from the often highly passionate and fiery first stages of falling for one another. It’s this type of love that doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
If you’re feeling as though your relationship isn’t what you had in mind, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s “wrong” for you.
Here are five signs that you’ve found the right relationship, and need to see where it will take you:

If you’ve started pondering whether or not your relationship still has the flame that it once did, it can be a sign that you’re starting to move into the kind of love that is real, intimate, and full of respect.
