Real Relationship Goals

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

There’s been a trend on social media for people posting images that are tagged with #RelationshipGoals—these include photos of couples playing games together, enjoying oversized portions of food and dancing on the beach.

However, relationship goals are more than just being picture perfect, they show what is important to you in a relationship.

Here are some important relationship goals that aren’t just about showing off, or looking good for the camera.

Shared lifestyle

Do you see yourself buying a house in the middle of nowhere, with just your partner and a host of pets for company, or would you prefer to be in a little village, but close to a busy town?

Your choice of where you would like to live will influence your choice of life partner as it is hard to adapt to a complete change of lifestyle.

By choosing to join Muddy Matches, you are likely to meet people who enjoy a country lifestyle and aren’t true city-slickers.

Shared interests

It’s normal and healthy to have your own hobbies and interests, but it is great to have common interests as well that you can enjoy together. If you let people know what you enjoy doing, it means that you will be able to attract people who have similar interests to you.

Work-life balance

Are you a self-confessed workaholic who panics when forced to book a week long holiday? If you are, you will need to either find someone who is as committed to work as you are, or someone who is very independent and doesn’t mind keeping busy while you work late at night, or early in the morning.

Family plans

When you fill in your details on Muddy Matches, you can select whether you have children and whether or not you would like to have children in the future. This is an important relationship goal as some people are very keen to start a family, whereas other people are keen to be child free, or are unable to have children.


Communication is the key to any relationship, so it is important to make time to talk to your partner. Sometimes it helps to go for a walk together so that you can get away from all other distractions.
