The secret sauce in a happy relationship isn't magic; it's empathy.
One sign is that you assume your partner has the same needs and boundaries as you do and that they experience life the same way as well.
A long term relationship has to be based on more than shared likes and mutual dislikes.
You and your partner may agree 99% of the time, but it's that 1% that can spell disaster if there's no empathy between you.
You develop empathy within a relationship by regularly listening to each other's thoughts and feelings.
Seeing the world from your partner's point of view helps to build closeness as well as respect for your partner's individuality.
On separate pieces of paper, write your answers to the following questions. Don't help each other or share your responses until the end.
After you've written your answers down, take some time to share your responses. See how close you were to getting it right.
What you need to create empathy is to listen - REALLY LISTEN - to your partner when they speak.
Listening doesn't mean waiting for your turn to talk. It means :
Even if you don't agree with their opinions or feel the same way, you can acknowledge that your partner has a right to their feelings.
The secret to a successful relationship, whether you're the couple that agrees 99 percent of the time or the couple with seemingly nothing in common, is EMPATHY. Now you have the skills to brew some up in your relationship.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
