“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”
10 Signs of Relationship Compatibility
Does your relationship have what it takes to make it last? Are you headed for long-term love or will your romance fizzle out? Here are the top 10 signs that you’re compatible:
- Shared values. You don’t need to agree on everything in a relationship, in fact having different opinions on movies, music, and other small stuff is healthy. But when it comes to the big values in life – family, trust, respect, honesty, etc. you will have a hard time making your relationship last into the future if you don’t agree on what’s important.
- Ability to be yourself. If you are able to relax and be your true self around your significant other then you have a great chance at a lasting future together. Putting on an act gets old really fast and takes too much energy. You want them to like you for who you really are without feeling pressure to be perfect.
- Ability to disagree. You won’t always agree on everything and being able to voice different opinions and get into occasional arguments is a healthy part of any relationship. If every time you disagree you wind up in an explosive fight, you probably aren’t meant to be. If you can agree to disagree and respect each other’s opinions you know you’re in a strong and healthy relationship.
- Ability to spend time apart. It’s important to have your own friends and interests and to be able to spend time on those things without worrying about your partner getting jealous, annoyed or threatened. You should both have your own lives and not need to spend every second together. If you can do that, you’re well on your way to relationship happiness.
