Are you struggling to communicate and feel close with your partner? Your relationship – and the experiences you and your partner both bring – are constantly changing, which can lead to periods where you feel disconnected or frustrated with one another. Over time these uncomfortable periods can establish themselves as negative patterns of communication and interaction in your relationship, further increasing the distance or tension you are feeling. You might be overwhelmed or exhausted by the challenges you are facing and, as a result, you may become increasingly disengaged in your relationship.
The first step in breaking a negative pattern is being able to identify and understand why you and your partner both react the way you do. This relationship compatibility test is not meant define or treat your relationship challenges, but it can help you identify areas of difficulty and understand if your relationship would benefit from professional support or relationship counseling.
The following emotional and physical connections are commonly used to determine compatibility between partners within a relationship, and whether or not your relationship is at risk. It is important to note that there is no one right way to be in a healthy, loving relationship.
