Are you really happy in your relationship or are you just content with what you have? You've probably already thought about this with a previous or current partner, but you probably didn't know the right answer at the time.

"And if you couldn't confidently answer this question,"Metro reassures, "don't despair. SSPDaily told about 6 signs of truly happy couples, which were recently shared on Tik Tok by Christina Virro, a psychotherapist and couples counselor from Ontario. Find them in your relationship, or make them appear in yours."

What is the difference between happy couples and ordinary ones?

The first sign Christina mentions is the creation of "micro-moments of connection." "It could be a morning kiss or a hug before you go to work," she says.

The second sign is when you ask your chosen one with genuine interest how their day was. She adds: "It's very easy to lose interest in each other's lives in the hustle and bustle of daily life." This is especially true if you have been living together for a long time and take everything that happens to you for granted.

Sign number three is the habit of listening and hearing your partner. "This means that you have to give the other person your full attention, ask questions, and put your phone aside during the conversation - it makes a big difference," says Christina.

"It's so important for people's mental health," she continues, "that the British Heart Foundation has even published a list of top tips on how to actively listen.

In particular, it includes the need to look the other person in the eye and maintain eye contact; pay attention to non-verbal cues such as facial expressions, tone of voice, and gestures; do not interrupt, ask questions based on what they have said, and repeat what they have said to show that you have really listened.

This is very important for any relationship because, according to Christina, "being closed off and unwilling to turn inward" will mean that your relationship is doomed.

The fourth thing that truly happy couples do is "give each other love and physical attention outside of sex," according to Christina. These are things like "holding hands, patting each other on the back, and playing with your partner's hair."

The number five sign of harmonious couples is showing gratitude. "Thank you for unloading the dishwasher today," "Thank you for picking up our son from school," says Christina. "It's just creating a loving, kind culture in your home."

Last but not least, happy couples do thoughtful things out of a sense of generosity. "Bring your partner a cup of coffee in the morning, leave them a little love note," Christina added.

How to create special moments in relationships

She also shared other secrets to create moments of unity with your partner.

One of them is to take joint work breaks if you both work from home to spend time together.

Complimenting your partner may seem obvious, but Christina says the more specific the compliment, the better.

And finally, sending a simple "thinking of you" message throughout the day is another way to show that you really care about this person.
