It’s one thing to date someone and another to make the relationship work. While dating is all about fun and enjoying yourself, a relationship requires you to take responsibility and give efforts. Let us find out what you can do to make your relationship last long.
Do interesting things
Boredom is the greatest killer of relationships. Couples who are in long-term relationships keep it at bay. Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to keep your relationship lively. Go on dates with your partner but not the usual dine and wine ones. Go to unusual places like spooky houses, old forts, and entertainment parks. Take packed food and have a nice picnic on weekends.
Try stargazing, go for camping expeditions or kayaking. In a nutshell, do things that would challenge you and keep things interesting.
Keep the romance alive
It happens that as the relationship grows old, we start taking things for granted. We stop saying “I love you”, we don’t talk much and sex also becomes boring. Don’t let that happen to your relationship. Sprinkle on romance and see how wonderfully the bond gets stronger. Bring flowers for your sweetheart, cook your partner’s favorite dish, give each other massages and share jokes.
Find out time each day to talk. Switch off mobiles and other gadgets and simple talk. There is nothing like having a heart-to-heart chat with your loved one.
Apart from love and romance, respect plays a crucial role in making a relationship stronger. Be respectful to your partner’s views, emotions and dreams. Even when you do not agree, don’t use harsh words. Make a rule to not use cuss words while fighting. Make up with good sex and never refer to old issues in fights.
In everything, be it your feelings, expressions or intimacy. Faking things don’t take people too far. If you do not like anything, say it but not harshly. Always take a positive view of life and encourage your partner to give her best.
Be best friends
Couples who become best friends enjoy a long-lasting and fulfilling relationship. When you become friends, you enjoy life more. You share jokes, get silly and do not suffer from insecurities. So, be your partner’s best friend and see how the relationship grows with time.
Give space to each other
This is very important. You need to have your own life and interests. By giving space to each other, you would grow as individuals and contribute to the relationship in a positive way.
Love and respect, friendship and care are the things that you need to make a relationship work.
