Okay, so you may not exactly be Barrack and Michelle, but it is definitely possible that you possess certain traits that make you and your man a total power couple!
Being a power couple is not all about money, looks, and status. Sure, it doesn’t hurt to have all that, but it is so much more than just that.
It means having that profoundly stable foundation, a healthy mindset, and a ‘we’ outlook on your relationship, which means you’re always looking to be better as a couple, as opposed to just your individual greatness.
Let’s give an example. Say your partner is feeling particularly down on any given day and doesn’t feel much about himself, what do you do?
You lift him up, you listen to him vent, and you show him what a badass dude he is, which propels him to get out of his funk and not let irrelevant shit get him down!
Sure, it’s not always that easy, but you’re always there. Where he’s weak, you’re strong.
Where he fails, you will jump in. And when he needs a word of encouragement, you’re the one he goes to.
That’s what a power couple is all about! As a team, you are the epitome of what everyone else strives to be.
And you’re not the type of couple that throws it in people’s faces. You’re just you, and people love you for your unassuming nature.
You two understand that nothing good comes with zero hard work.
So you don’t rely on hope that everything will work itself out, but you work hard to achieve that harmonious relationship.
You both put in the same amount of effort and your goal is to be that happy, long-lasting couple that will tell their grandkids someday about their everlasting love and the importance of teamwork.
People seem to really like you as a couple, and you’re so proud of each other and how far you’ve come.
All the hardships have only made you stronger both as individuals and a couple, and you can’t imagine letting anyone break you apart.
Here are some typical signs that prove that you and your man are indeed total power couple material!
1. People genuinely admire your relationship
Have you ever heard a friend just get so adorably annoyed at how cute and compatible you and your partner are?
It’s like all they really want is to find what you two have, but it’s impossible!
You two click on every single level and you just radiate that healthy, awesome, badass couple vibe that people can’t help but ask you what your secret is.
If you’ve experienced this, it’s one of the signs that you could be considered a power couple without even realizing it.
Your family members are constantly in awe of your relationship and everybody seems to like your boyfriend almost more than you! If that’s the case, girl, you’ve got it all.
2. You’re the relationship expert in your friend group
Every time there’s a boy-related crisis among your friends, you’re the go-to person.
This has become such a frequent thing that you’re almost thinking about charging them (just kidding).
But no, really, all your girlfriends rely on your expert advice, and what you say goes. Nobody questions it and they take what you say seriously.
You’ve probably successfully resolved many a crisis and ever since, you’ve been the designated therapist.
Power couples exude confidence and that secure feeling in their relationship, and your friends admire that a lot.
This is why you’re their go-to girl for any drama or advice, and you should honestly take that as a compliment.
Clearly, they think you’ve got it all, and they’re probably not wrong.
3. You feel genuine gratitude on a daily basis
You’re aware that not every day is going to be easy.
There will come a time when things won’t go as smoothly and you’ll struggle a bit, and you’re okay with that.
This is exactly why you wake up grateful every single day that you’ve found a person that you know you can go through anything with, and come out the other end.
You know that every relationship goes through tough periods, but you’re both ready for it.
You know how to pull through, and you’ve found the man who knows how to handle your dark days and will love you through it all.
Your partner has your full support, and vice versa, and you appreciate all those small things that mean the world!
The way he can make you laugh like no other, and your ability to read his mind without even trying.
That’s what makes you you, and that’s what’s going to keep you sane and grounded.
4. Whenever you share a mutual photo, people swarm you with cute comments!
There are those couples who can’t help but share every annoying detail of their love life, and honestly, it’s a little too much.
It’s like they stage every photo to appear like that ultimate happy couple, but people are just tired of it.
But that’s anything but the case for you and your man. You know exactly what to post and what’s meant to be kept private.
You never overshare, and whenever you post a cute couple photo, people absolutely love it.
You get tons of adorable comments on how awesome you look together and how beautiful your relationship seems.
Those little things really mean a lot to you, as people seem truly impressed and happy for you and your partner. And they should be!
You don’t bore your entire friend list with every detail of what you two did that day, so when you do share something, it’s a total win, and those positive comments are what indicates you two are on the verge of becoming a true power couple.
5. Nobody roots for your partner more than you, and vice versa
It is important to you that your partner are fulfilled and happy as individuals.
You want him to achieve whatever he has his mind set to, and you’re there every step of the way helping him and having his back.
You are his go-to girl for both personal and professional advice and he knows you’ve got him, no matter what.
When he’s struggling, you feel it too, so you never let him go through anything alone.
And just like you are there for him, he’s there for you too.
You don’t know where you’d be without his undying support; he is literally the wind beneath your wings.
Mutual support is what power couples are made of.
When you genuinely prop each other up, with no ulterior motive but genuine happiness for each other, that’s what it’s all about.
6. You never make important decisions without each other
That’s the thing about you two.
You respect each other and trust that the other one is perfectly capable of making a good decision for you as a couple, yet, you never do it by yourself.
You always run everything by each other and consult on any big decision that concerns you both.
You understand that it’s important you both be included in the decision making process because it is likely going to affect you both in the long run.
You’re not afraid of serious conversations and deliberations and you know just how to approach the big subjects so that both partners are equally satisfied with the end result.
This is what power couples understand more than anyone, and if you two are a team when it comes to making big decisions, you’re well on your way.
7. You don’t worry about things that are irrelevant to your relationships
A little jealousy is apparently healthy, but you just don’t really have any reason to be jealous.
You trust your guy completely. You know he would never risk what you have for a meaningless fling.
He doesn’t give you reason to be jealous at all and the same goes for you.
Even when your ex drunk texts you or his co-worker seems to have the hots for your man, you just brush it off.
It’s irrelevant, it means nothing, and therefore it does not bother you one bit.
When you don’t let outside influences affect your relationship, you truly have what it takes to be considered a power couple.
You are secure in what you have and there is nothing that can make you question his loyalty.
8. When he’s happy, you’re happy
It’s very simple. His happiness is your happiness! If something amazing happens at work and he’s overjoyed, you’re even happier for him.
When you see him thriving, there is nothing that gives you more pleasure.
You are a team. So when either one of you have something going for them, you’re equally happy as if it’s your own accomplishment, and that is the most common trait of a power couple.
You two are so close, that your pride is unmatched at his personal and professional achievements and even if you wanted to, you couldn’t hide it!
When your man is happy, you could shout it from the rooftops! And the best part is that he feels the same for you.
Every time something amazing has happened to you, he’s been the proudest boyfriend you could ever have imagined, and that is honestly the only thing better than the achievement itself.
9. You make each other a priority every single day
Power couples have a lot going on, so it’s easy to get distracted with everyday things that you forget what’s really important.
But that never happens to you. You always put each other first.
You know how important it is to prioritize each other no matter how busy your schedules might get.
You see the importance in being present and giving each other the attention you both crave and deserve.
You both understand that even a twenty-minute conversation with your partner could mean the world to them, so you always make sure to find time.
They could be going through something tough, so no matter how swamped your day is, you have your priorities straight.
This is what builds that emotional intimacy you two proudly share and the thing that keeps you close and connected even on the most hectic days.
You don’t take your relationship for granted and you would never allow yourself the privilege of doing that.
It’s too easy getting too comfortable and stop making an effort, and that’s exactly what keeps you so invested.
And that is what being a power couple is all about.
Having a successful individual career and thriving, and still managing to find time to spend it with the one who matters the most.
