How strong is your relationship? Here are the Secretive Ways to Test the Strength of a Relationship

1. Check if your partner looks directly into your eyes or avoids your gaze? Research has found out that couples in love tend to spend more time gazing into each other’s eyes. So next time you meet your partner on a date or over a romantic dinner, notice if your partner looks directly into your eyes, or avoids your gaze?
2. Check if your partner shares his/her personal information, particularly after you have shared something personal or intimate? This is known as “reciprocal self-disclosure” and is the process by which strong relationships are formed. 
3. Does your partner show jealousy when an attractive person shows interest in you?
4. Does your partner willingly offer to help you out with some difficult or a boring chore, such as helping you move your flat, cleaning out your room / house, taking care of your pet while you are on a business trip?
5. Does your partner tell you how much s/he missed you, or say, “Is it two weeks already? Seems like yesterday!”?

Do you know you can read People by the Words they Speak

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then words are the gateway to the mind. Words represent thoughts. The closest one person can get to understand another person's thought is to listen to the words that he or she speaks or writes. 
Do you know words reflect the behavioral characteristics of the person who spoke or wrote about them? These word clues can increase your probability of predicting the behavioral characteristics of people by analyzing the words with which they communicate.
Hence if you practice and learn the word clues, you probably gain huge mileage to your decision-making capabilities in your professional and personal life. Psychologist and Marriage Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo shares some interesting tips on how to read people by their choice of words. 
1) Look for use of the word “another” Check if the person uses the word ‘another’, too frequently to express self-achievements; likes I won another award, I have own another flat in Delhi etc.  This generally indica…

How to Defend Less and Empathize more as a Partner

Empathy is defined as the ability to understand another person’s or your own partner’s feelings, thoughts and attitudes by understanding him or her very deeply.
According to Marriage Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo, being empathetic means you're aware of someone's emotions from their perspective; you feel what they feel. Although it's important to be empathetic in every personal connection you have, but when it’s the matter of your marriage, enhancing your empathic ability is very important to maintain a long-lasting romantic bond.  When we look at the world from our partner’s point of view, we begin to bridge the gap of understanding between us. Counsellor Shivani also warns that in most relationships with time, partners tend to stop practicing empathy and that silently kills the bond, joy and happiness that two partner potentially can enjoy even after decades of staying together and bringing up children.
The major reasons, why partners stop being empathic in relationship ar…

Do You Know Your Attachment Style that governs your Relationship

Do you know every relationship we hold in our life is governed by our attachment style and it’s our style of attachment (security, anxiety, dismissive etc) that affects everything from our partner selection to how well our relationships progress or how they end? That is why recognizing our attachment pattern can help us understand our strengths and vulnerabilities in a relationship. 
For example, the person with a working model of anxious/preoccupied attachment style feels that in order to get close to someone and have your needs met; you need to be with your partner all the time and get reassurances. To support this perception of reality, they choose someone who is isolated and hard to connect with. Similarly, when there is a secure attachment pattern, a person is confident and self-possessed and is able to easily interact with others, meeting their own and another’s needs as well .

Secret Dating Hacks that Leads to Love and Happiness

As a relationship and marriage Counselor, I have often found couples who missed to start their relationship with a mindful dating and that leads to shorting of their relationship, says Shivani Misri Sadhoo.
She says the way we approach dating determines the kind of love we find. And the quality of the love we find determines the very quality of our lives. In other words, a mindful dating can lead us more quickly to real love; it also leads us to live richer, more fulfilling relationships.
Counsellor Shivani says, the search for healthy love is not about tricks, gimmicks, or quick fixes. Our search for love deserves our deepest respect, compassion, and intelligence.
