Love advice:10 ways to preserve your relationship

The key ingredient to a lasting relationship is?

There isn't one! There are many key ingredients. If you failed to answer this question,then you are on the right website! Welcome, here you find the answers to questions such as:What is the key to a successful marriage?How do i keep my man,woman,boyfriend or girlfriend? i will list what i feel are ten(from least to most important) of the most important ingredients in building a lasting relationship with your partner.

Key Ingredient # 10

The sexiness factor: Bring sexy back

Let's face it: we see before we speak. What that means is this: when you first met your partner, something about him or her captured your attention. To you, he or she may not be the next Brad Pitt or Halle Berry but nevertheless, there was an attraction there when you both first met. Therefore, one of the key ingredients in building a lasting relationship is for you to maintain your "sexiness."

At times, we tend to loose our figures and sense of fashion when we have been in a relationship with someone for a long time. Break this cycle of comfort. Get your sexy back. Show your partner what he or she will be missing if the two of you should part...

Key ingredient#9

Did I just spend 20 hours with you? giving each other breathing room

Wow, If you have ever spent twenty hours with anyone, then you need to find a hobby. There comes a time that when two people have been together for a long time, they start to grate on each other's nerves. It has happened to me and has happened to you as well. Give your partner some space,some breathing room. Go out shopping or go jogging for a change . Do something other than be with that person. Sometimes when we are in love, we feel we cannot part away from our loved one;they are essentially the center of our universe. But have you realized that the longer you are with that person and the more time you spend with that person, arguments abound? Even if you are married, still give your spouse some breathing room-Call your mother:she misses you.

Key Ingredient#8

Dating is for teenagers. Right?

Well, if you think so then good luck on your quest to having a long- lasting relationship. No, dating isn't just for teens anymore.

Before you were boyfriend and gilrfriend or married for that matter, you went on dates. So what has changed? One of the key ingredients in having a successful relationship is for the two of you to maintain some romance. Romance means going out to the movies(you can stay inside to watch a romantic flick as well), going out to dinner, and listening to romantic songs together. Romance means a dozen roses or a box of chocolates or having a picnic together. Going out on a date does not mean taking your better half to go visit your best friend. No sir!!!

key ingredient#7

find time to talk at least once a day

Yes, this also applies to married couples. Whether you are married or not,take the time to chat with your partner. Sit down with your partner at least once a day and have at least a 30 minute conversation. If you are unable to sit down with your partner, then just grab a telephone and call him or her.

Key ingredient#6

"I hate you right now!"-don't stay mad at your partner for long

Do not stay mad at your partner for more than a day. If you are able to go a week without speaking to your loved one, then maybe the two of you should re-evaluate the relationship. SO key ingredient number six is that individuals in a relationship should not go more than a whole day without speaking to each other. if you let a day or more go by, feelings of dislike for the other individual creep up on you.

Key Ingredient #5

affection begets affection-Honey, you are the best!!

Well, I am not the most affectionate person ,i must admit. Rarely do the words "baby' or "honey" come out of my mouth. But I have observed many lasting relationships and have determined that one of the key ingredients to having a lasting relationship is for the two individuals to show affection towads each other.

Affection is holding hands, calling each other honey or sweety. Affection is a peck on the cheek or lips. However way you know how to show affection, show it!!!!!!

ingredient#4

You are so annoying!!!I do not have the patience!

Well, if you would like to be in a loving relationship with your partner then you have to learn to have patience. Patience is a cultivated skill. Some people are gifted in being patient and others are not. if you happen to be one of the"others," then learn to be patient. Take a deep breath and count to ten: It works. By the time you are done counting to ten, you probably would not remember what it is you were getting angry about in the first place.

Key Ingredient#3

I love you, ireally, really do

I Love you. I really Love You. You are blushing,aren't you? Well, it is this same sentiment that your partner feels when he knows that you love him. Say "I Love You" at least once a day. My ex-boyfriend and I used to say "I love You'"to each other at least every other day . Then a week went by and we did not utter those words to each other again. I knew in that week that we were headed for trouble. Do me a favor, say I love you.

Key ingredient #2

Trust in me

TRUST: How can any relationship survive without trust? What is trust? Rather than give you Websters' definiton of trust, i will let you know what "trust" in a relationship means to me. Trust is:

1)Believing in the love you have together

2) Believing your present relatonship is more important than his/her past relationship with an EX.

These two definitons of trust may seem too simple in one's eyes,but really it is not. if you were to believe in the love that you have with that individual ,then there wouldn't be a need to distrust that person, now would there? Finally, a lot of the times cheating is a big reason why a lot of relationships terminate. Most of the time, a partner cheats with an Ex or someone close to him or her. If you trust that your partner has no feelings for his or her Ex, then you have no problem.

Take that leap of faith and trust.Go ahead,jump!!!

drum roll Please........Ingredient #1

Communication-enough said

Communication is to relationships as urinating is to a healthy body. Yes, communication is that important. Imagine not being able to urinate for a week-yeah, exactly, a very uncomfortable situation. Well, what if you and your partner could not communicate as effectively as you would want to? An uncomfortable situation indeed. The key to communicating is for each party involved in the relationship to acknowledge that he or she is not perfect. We at times must agree to disagree. One person cannot be right all the time. So acknowledge each other's opinions and when in disagreement, just agree to disagree!More importantly, learn to listen to each other and value the positive more than you value the negative aspects of that individual. Live, Love, and Eat Chocolates!

I spend almost 24 hours a day, everyday with my husband. We even work togather. I hate it when he goes to the store without me even if he is only gone 15 minutes. See my gem store

Nice job on the lens! I would also add the ingredient of "not going to bed angry." Stay up and talk things through. It is better to have 3-4 hours of good sleep than 8 hours of restless sleep because you are in the middle of a fight.

Great article, great read i really enjoyed it.

this is also an awesome article on how to get your ex back and it WORKS, you only need to implement the strategies in it. this article has tons of information in it that you need to know even if you don't have an ex you want back.

The key is triggering all the right emotions in order to get them back in your arms. You have to prove to them that you mean business. Nothing in the world is more important than the two of you getting back together. I'm surprised I found a way that you can do this by simply texting...Of course, you have to get their attention first, and I found an amazing program that does all of this called Text Your Ex Back. This product gives you the EXACT texts you can use to get them back, and get them back for good. The author provides everything you need to show the one you love that getting back together is the best for both of you and that nothing is more important.

- I am kasha i lives in uk and i was in a serious relationship with my ex guy for three good years.. One day we were in a dinner party, we had a little misunderstanding which lead to a Quarrel and he stood up and left me at the dinner party. i try to call him but he was not picking my calls so after than i contacted my brother and told him about it,my brother so much love me that he had to see him on my behalf,he told my brother that it is over between us.. Then i contacted a friend of mine that had this similar experience and she directed me to one of the spiritual diviner (maduraitemple@yahoo.com).at first i thought it was not going to be possible and i contacted him i was ask to come up with a little requirement,so i did what i was ask to do, after 3 days i was in my office when my ex guy called me and was asking me to forgive him and come back to him. i was very surprise it was like a dream to me,so ever since we have been happily married with one kid my lovely baby(Ceslav)...i wish you the best of luck...

I contacted drlawrencespelltemple@gmail.com in regards of my lover. He no

longer wanted to associate with me anymore. He was interested in working

out his marriage, after begging and pleading with him I realized it was out

of my hands, he really was leaving me. My co-worker went through a similar

situation and told me that drlawrencespelltemple@gmail.com had helped her. I

can't say how much I'm grateful she introduced me to the temple. After

discussing the resolution with the temple, his get your lover back spell

has done more than what I expected. My lover not only came back to me, but

has left his wife and now was engaged, we are getting married next month, I

don't know what I would have done without drlawrencespelltemple@gmail.com. I

believe drlawrencespelltemple@gmail.com is my guardian,
