What is a healthy relationship?
A healthy relationship is when two people develop a connection based on:
– Mutual respect
– Separate identities
– Good communication
– A sense of playfulness/fondness

Life as a single person offers many rewards, including learning how to build a healthy relationship with yourself. However, if you’re ready to share your life with someone and want to build a lasting, worthwhile relationship, life as a single person can also be very frustrating.
Finding the right romantic partner is often a difficult journey, for several reasons. Perhaps you grew up in a household where there was no role model of a solid, healthy relationship and you doubt that such a thing even exists. Or maybe your dating history consists only of short, abrupt relationships where you or your partner gets bored too soon, and you don’t know how to make a relationship last. You could be attracted to the wrong type of person or making the same bad choices, due to an unresolved issue from your past. It’s also possible you’re not putting yourself in the best environments to meet the right person, or that when you do, you don’t feel confident enough to approach someone. There is fear in your heart. Then eventually, instead of opening your doors for a new relationship you deprive yourself to be loved by other opposite sex. On the other hand, having a new short-term relationship after break-up is just only a sweet revenge from your past failed relationship. The worst thing is, if you are using someone else as a rebound or just to feed your fantasies.
This is another article of mine I want to share. The experience I felt with these lovely couples from China.
It was on August 16, at the arrival jetty when Mr. Peng and Ms. Rui (honeymooners)visit Jumeirah Vittaveli. Plastering their biggest smile ever with high spirit as they make a pose in front of the camera.
The following day, we did a 45-minute photo shoot around the island. Full of laughter and action as we go along with the shoot.
Despite warm weather and heat of the sun, they still manage to smile and show off their genuine expressions which make the capture more realistic.
As we go along, Ms. Peng (Florence), shared their love story. They are very kind, humble and funny couple.
I am very grateful, that I am part of their memorable experience during their vacation here in Maldives.
