- Sacrifice test
What’s love without a little sacrifice? A wise person once said, you cannot love a person until you kill a little bit of yourself. Well, with that idea, love surely comes with some sacrifices in the package. Will your partner make sacrifices for you? Will he go the extra mile, make the extra effort to keep you happy? If the person is very rigid and not very compliant when it comes to making sacrifices, then what’s the point in staying in such a relation. If he/ she is ensuring that they’ll do whatever it takes to keep the relationship afloat, then congrats to you. Let’s see what the next test is.
- Forgiveness test
People make mistakes. That’s what makes us human. You are bound to make mistakes in your relationship as well. It’s completely fine. However, if your significant other is the type who would simply keep a grudge and use it against you the next time you get in an argument, well then you better walk out of the relationship this very moment! A good relationship sustains only when both the partners forgive each other and overlook the mistakes. After all, there is a lot to a person that just the mistakes!

What really matters is the respect that you have for a person. In order to love a person truly, it is very important for you to actually respect the person for who they are. Because, love is felt, respect is earned. So if you and your partner share mutual respect for each other, then you two are on the right track.
- Revelation test
Does your man always act sneaky – hiding his phone from you, walking away when answering calls, deleted chat history etc.? Do you think your girl keeps secrets from you – she hides her credit cards, spends hours on the phone and when asked, shrugs off saying it was one of her girlfriends? Well, mister and miss, seems like your relationship is doomed. Sorry for being so honestly blunt! But yes, a relationship should not keep any secrets. You both should be able to read each other like your favorite books.
- Patience test
Don’t crib when your girl gets late for a date – she was getting ready for you. Don’t complain when your guy comes home late – he is putting in extra hours to buy a gift for you. Patience, that’s the key to a successful relationship. If this key ingredient is absent from your relationship, then your relationship is as good as thrown out of the window. If you and your partner practice ample of patience, more power to your guys!
- Companionship test
Is your guy always present for you? Can your girlfriend sit through a cricket match, just because you are a fan of the sport? Does your husband share house chores with you? Does your wife attend the concert of your favorite singer, even though loud music gives her a headache? If your answer is yes, congratulations! If your answer is no, I suggest you find someone more suitable. The whole point of having a partner is to have a companion so that you can do all the things as a couple!
