What is a “successful” relationship?

I want to talk about what defines successful (and unsuccessful) relationships. Yeah, that might seem like a weird place to start, but I think you’ll see after the first section why it makes sense. And, yes, I am definitely going to eventually talk about how to meet people, how to start relationships, how to gauge where it’s going, but before we even think about that, we kinda need to know what we’re looking for.
