50 Ways to Keep Your Lover

Keeping Your Lover is Your Choice...

Paul Simon sang about 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover. I'm here to share 50 Ways to Keep Your Lover.

Some of you might not be familiar with this classic hit, so feel free to watch the video beforehand.

It is so simple to say "I Love You." How about showing your love instead of just saying the words? Demonstrating your fondness takes effort, creativeness and a caring heart.

If you want to keep your lover you need to express your emotions through your actions. Don't take the easy way out, be adventurous and enjoy making memories!

Whether you are dating or married I hope some of my ideas will be useful for you.

I'm not an expert in relationships, but you can say that I've been there and done that.

In one way or another we've all had relationship experiences, whether good or bad, we live and learn. Hopefully we don't repeat the same mistakes.

If you have any suggestions that would help others keep their lover, please share them in the comment section below. We are never too old to learn something new.

So here goes, with my take of 50 Ways to Keep Your Lover.....

50 Ways to keep your lover...

Source

How many ways to keep your lover could you relate to?

1. Give a gift just because. No need for a special occasion.
2. Alternate days for the TV remote. You might learn something intriguing and interesting!
3. Fire up the grill, learn how to cook. Don't expect to get served unless you serve others.
4. Connect by holding hands. How long has it been since you've done that?
5. Don't slip out the back Jack if an issue arises....confront the problem and then decide if you are going to make a run for it. Always have an escape plan!
6. Date night. It doesn't have to be extravagant. Whether at home or somewhere else it is what it is. No, I'm not going to plan it for you also!
7. Privacy. Give each other space. CLAUSTROPHOBIA in a relationship is taboo. Breathe!
8. Discuss much. Communication is a MUST. Did you follow that? Communication is a MUST.
9. Make plans as a team. Don't rely on one person to be the entertainer...which is why it's called teamwork!
10. Laugh and laugh some more, then laugh again. Laugh until your belly hurts.
11. Don't be coy (shy) tell your mate what you want. Contrary to what you might have heard, mind-readers are far and few between.
12. Hold the door open. Pull out the chair. Yes, common courtesy still exists.
13. Take a walk and stop to smell the roses or apple blossoms!
14. Don't go to bed angry, get your point across and don't give in until the other sees it your way.
15. LISTEN and HEAR I repeat LISTEN AND HEAR.
16. Don't always expect to fix everything, sometimes you just need to (see #15)
17. Give a shoulder massage! You never know when you are going to need them so show some love!
18. It's not imperative to always speak when alone, just enjoy the moment.
19. SPEAK more!!!
20. Ask about their day. Their tomorrows. Their yesterdays.
21. Try not to share bodily noises unless absolutely necessary, even then still try not to.
22. Take care of your health. It's not all about you, think of your loved ones! No one is invincible.
23. Always, I repeat ALWAYS have chocolate on hand in case ANY emergency should emerge.
24. Hop on the bus and take a road trip to anywhere!
25. Give each other the key to your hearts.

More ways to Keep Your Lover...

26. Take random pictures of each other to laugh at later.
27. Roll out the red carpet, but never be a doormat.
28. Be spontaneous, but never combust!
29. Call or text just to say thinking of you, isn't that reason enough?
30. The best gifts are from the heart. So simple yet mean the most.
31. Never assume! Do I have to tell you what happens... U make an ASS of ME (meaning U)
32. Never say, "You look fine" with a quizzical expression....UH OH! Watch your back!
33. SMILE often and give each other reasons to smile.
34. Appreciate....one more time....A-P-P-R-E-C-I-A-T-E!
35. Pssst....size does matter.
36. Never intentionally embarrass or humiliate your significant other (continued w/ #37)
37. Do unto others as others do unto you.
38. Honesty is the best policy. There are NO ifs, ends or buts. None.
39. Just be yourself. Don't pretend to be someone you aren't just to impress. It never works.
40. Don't just LOOK, see within the heart.
41. Be supportive. but don't smother unless one of you is on fire!
42. If you don't love yourself, you can't love someone else. So find yourself before you try to find a mate.
43. Dance! Who cares if you can't, do it anyway! In the kitchen, backyard, on the counter-top...just do it!
44. Walk side by side ... never behind or ahead.
45. Think before you speak. Trust me, you'll thank me for this one.
46. Share a hot fudge sundae, even if it's a weekday.
47. If you don't like being judged than don't judge others. Karma!
48. You can't change anyone but yourself. Do not commit to a relationship thinking you will change the person. That is not going to end well.
49. Say ONE nice thing to each other every day. It can be done.
50. Lastly, remind each other that you are together for a reason. If you don't have a reason watch video below.

Just in case the above 50 don't work out for you....

Paul Simon: 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

You just slip out the back, Jack

Make a new plan, Stan

You don’t need to be coy, Roy

Just get yourself free...

Congratulations on your 50th Hub!! You have another winner here, Sunshine. I tried to choose my favorite idea from the 50 you offered...but they're all great. I showed my hubby.

ruffridyer 5 years ago from Dayton, ohio

Sometimes after work I stopped by the flower shop to bring something home to my wife. I didn't do it very often because every time I did she would ask me, "What did you do Wrong!"

I later found out ALOT of wives are like that, no wonder they hardly get flowers.


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 5 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

What an excellent way to celebrate your 50th hub, Sunshine625. I am also a fan of Paul Simon and Simon and Garfunkle before that so I enjoyed a few of the ways to keep your lover that included references to a line or two of a song. Like "hop on the bus" and "slip out the back, Jack." Congratulations on your milestone!

GusTheRedneck profile image

GusTheRedneck 5 years ago from USA

Howdy Sunshine - That's quite a list. From a wee bit of experience (like 59 years counting this year...) I can state that there are probably two ways to keep your lover... (1) Pay the rent and (2) Keep your big mouth shut. Those two do not seem to be all that "romantic," but, as the psychiatrists and the like are wont to tell us, "When you remove the feathers there is actually some chicken meat there to either work the bird the way it likes or to cook the thing the way you like."

Gus :-)))

22. "Take care of your health." That should include personal hygienes: dental (brush teeth, floss, mouthwash, visits to dentist), grooming hair (washing often, combing, styling nicely), regular baths/showers, feet and facial care (women and men).

I have known many women and men to be pushed off because of poor body maintenance. I know a young lady who ended a relationship with a very nice and handsome young man, and I thought that she was pushing away her soul mate. He seemed like such a good guy. She explained that he had a problem brushing his teeth and taking regular baths. She added that she was tired of reminding him and sick of the odors. She made much sense. We can change ourselves, but we cannot force change on others.

Your 50 ways are on target! I enjoy reading them.

Nyamache profile image

Nyamache 4 years ago from Kenya

When a woman is talking and complaining about things, she does not mean that you as a man to fix the problems. All she wants is for you to listen and comfort her either by hugging her or holding her. And when a man is salient do not mistake that he is ignoring you as his woman. All he wants is space for him to sort out whatever is bothering him. So do not try to get attention from him when he is silent, leave him alone and he will come out of it and he will get your attention the way he always does.
