A lot of people have their own thoughts about what a good partner is and what they should do but honestly, it’s a lot easier than most expect it to be. You don’t have to be perfect to be the best person for your significant other.

If you’re someone’s girlfriend chances are there are times when you wonder if you’re enough or if you’re doing the right things but honestly, you’re probably doing more than enough to please your partner. Yes, relationships in this day and age are far more complicated than most would assume but if you’re communicating properly, making an effort, and really taking care of one another as best you can then things will be just fine.

Honestly, I feel like the key to being a good girlfriend is to value your partner’s well-being just as much as you do your own. Make sure they feel as important to you as they are. This might not always be easy bit it is very important. No one wants to feel like they’re being left in the dust when it comes to life or love.

You have to be willing to give your partner space when they need it and be there to pick them back up when they fall. It’s more about sticking around through the rough times than it is making the most of the good times and far too many people forget that. Successful relationships might be confusing but they are so worth it. If you and your partner are both on the same page, things will go over amazingly.

Even if you’ve been with your partner for years on end, don’t stop complimenting them and do your best to keep things as they were from the very beginning. Yes, we all change and relationships progress as time passes but you still both need to be putting an effort into the small things. Those small things matter so much.

Build together and focus on trust, moving along the path the two of you are paving for one another. Be willing to hear your partner out and don’t get down their throat over things that aren’t going to matter tomorrow. Don’t be too jealous and instead make sure that you’re both able to trust in one another even despite your pasts. Be there for your partner as he or she chases their goals and be their biggest support system.

The more you respect each other the better things will be in the long run. Relationships are so fantastic when done right and being a good girlfriend is so much more than just the physical stuff, sure intimacy is important but there is so much more to love than just that. It takes a lot to make things truly last.
