Arguments, trust issues, and misunderstandings are part of the many bumps a relationship has to go through. With a number of these problems coming unannounced and at an alarming rate, it’s a sad fact that most relationships don’t prosper. It may sound pessimistic but that’s the reality that both men and women face.
For those who stay positive, the bond that two partners share becomes one. Everything becomes one. Success and failure, victory or defeat both of them have to go through it together. Truthfully, problems will appear non-stop. The reality of this situation is that this will eventually cause strain with one or even both partners.
Do something fun:
Once in a while, do something fun with your partner. If both of you have decided that you don’t want to have kids at this time, then it’s more reason to enjoy each other’s company even more. Plan activities like going to the beach or spending a night together in some resort.
If you do have kids, then plan something more detailed. Opt to leave your children with relatives if they’re old enough. With that, both of you can safely go on with your trips without any worries.
Believe it or not, little things that determine how reliable you are making a big difference in the health and happiness of your relationship. That’s because healthy relationships are built on a foundation of trust. When you do what you say you’re going to do, show up on time, keep your promises, and even take out the garbage every Tuesday night like clockwork, it strengthens the trust in your relationship. Whenever you have the chance to demonstrate that you’re reliable, do it. It’ll pay off in big ways.
Smiling At Your Partner:
Every so often, just look at your partner and smile. A smile is an act of gratitude. It conveys that you’re happy, that you just adore them, that you’re thankful, and that you feel lucky. All just from moving some muscles in your face. I’ve not swooned when I caught my partner just looking at me and smiling for no reason. It’s a silent way to say, “I freaking love you.”
Never give up:
Whenever someone’s feeling down between the two of us, we never stop consoling each other. We don’t stop until we don’t find out what’s bothering us. If all else fails, a simple hug usually does the trick, and we end up talking about the problem.
Have Team Goals:
Goals unite you. They give you a purpose, they give you direction, they make your dreams come true, and they’re a great way to add some happiness and strength to your relationship. No matter how big or small your goals are, you should have them. Even if those goals are “two dates this week” as opposed to “five-year plan to buy a house.” Goals are life.
Say Those Things People Forget To Say:
I mean, yes, tell your partner you love them. And tell them they’re hot. But also tell them things we often forget to put into words. Say, “I understand.” Say, “I appreciate you.” Say, “I like you.” Say, “You understand me.” Say, “You make me want to be my best self.” Say, “I’m thankful for you.” We feel these things and we often show them in our actions, but we don’t always say them out loud. Be a person who says them out loud.
