Haha how much is a lot? We’ve been having it twice a day when I’m there.
Sex doesn’t solve everything though we are in a global pandemic.

Communication, compatibility and just being comfortable in each other’s company even when doing literally nothing.

Been in a relationship with my other half for 11 years

Its really important to communicate but it is even more crucial for both of you to understand what is being put across. Also, feeling consistently secure with someone and their love for you is a pretty good indicator

Tbh everyone’s relationship boundaries and dynamics are also different so what healthily works for others might not work for me and vice versa!

A good balance of being independent but still being supportive of the other person - being caring and making sacrifices for them without tortuing yourself just to coddle them, being willing to criticize the other person and hold them accountable without berating them - generally finding a balance. Usually if you're in a committed relationship, then prioritising that person in your life is very crucial. Some things are obviously wrong (doesn't matter if a man or woman does them), like blatantly insulting, hitting (unless it is in self-defense), gaslighting/manipulating, violating privacy, cheating, etc.

It is difficult to mention literally everything but it is a good idea to assess the relationship scenarios around you and to think if this is truly constructive. A good rule of thumb is: if you think that you'd have been happier if you've never met this person - then you should probably have a good think about that, because there could be something wrong. But some people might not realise they're in a toxic situation because they're too emotionally attached to the person or have been abused for so long that they don't know what a healthy relationship looks like, as you've said.

TL;DR: communication, boundaries, comfortability, Time for each other, equality and balance..... In healthy relationships yes communication is key (Kaosgeneral), my girl-friend and I took it took far one night and we were able to address that with each other properly which really helps a lot in healthy relationships.. boundaries is also a really good thing to have with you your partner.. but that goes hand in hand with being comfortable (also Kaosgeneral) xDxD and they don't call it a Signifigant other for nothing, so making time for each other is a must.. and also equality.. equality in a relationship is one of if not THE most important thing.. there can't be a *overly* dominant one in the relationship.. Because then it loses the balance which relationships need to have.. also a good way to check your guy's relationship is to see if it is becoming a burden.. if it's becoming difficult to manage and maintain a relationship and especially a healthy one then maybe it isn't the best time to have one and maybe it could be best to try again later on

I can say for sure that an adequate relationship has several features that will remain unchanged in any format. And one hundred percent I can say that these things are a necessary foundation for a normal relationship. Namely: 1 Respect, 2 the ability to accept and respect each other's boundaries, 3 understanding of the partner's basic needs in a relationship.

Being able to be yourself - if the other person starts forcing you to fit their model of how you should be, it's time to get out.
