How to Keep a Lasting and Loving Relationship
Building A Successful Relationship
If you are just starting out in a relationship, just know it will take time. You have to take the time to learn and build your relationship. Don't expect you or your partner to be in love so quick that after a month you or your partner or ready to move in together. It will not work that way. Take your time to learn your partner. Learn about your partner dislikes and likes, goals in life, how many kids or if they actually want kids, and if they like to watch basketball or hockey and amongst other things. Take your time out of each day to learn something new about your partner, because it is better to know then to learn later!!
If you have been in a relationship for awhile, then you will need to take some time to just talk and learn new things about your partner as well. This will keep the love part growing and growing. Also, have your partner's back if they are in a time of need or sadness. Give advice and comfort your partner. Let them know that you will be there no matter what the situation is. It doesn't matter if you both are broke and sad, just let your partner that the both of you will make it through and it will be the two in the end. Show how much you love your partner at every chance you get, because you never know what tomorrow brings. If you put all these things together, your love relationship will surely stay solid!!
Understanding Your Partner
First, if you are in a relationship, you know it will be hard work just staying in a relationship or keeping it solid. Relationships takes time, patience, understanding, and will power. If you are not ready to put those four things to the limit, it will be a waste of time staying in a relationship.
Being in a relationship in my opinion requires dedication and understanding of your partner. That is the first step to keep your relationship solid and grounded. Communicating and asking your partner how he or she feels everyday, gives your partner every chance to open up and communicate with you. If you are a busy person or have kids to tend to, make sure you spend some time talking, joking around, or going to romantic dinner every once in a while. This keeps the love part of your relationship going, because it is not just about love making or how you are in the bed. It is more than that. It is showing how you deeply care for that person.
Relationships have their ups and downs and you will be tested to see if your love can conquer all. I have personally went through a lot of things in my relationship but I was willing to go after love. Love should never make you feel helpless, unappreciated, or alone. You should always feel if all else fails that you can count on your partner to make you feel safe and loved. Life is already hard enough and sharing your life with the person you can have to be around and love compassionately is most important.
Guide To Restoring Your Relationship
If Love Fails, What To Do?
If you feel your relationship is declining due to personal issues or even financial issues talk to your partner about all the issues. Talking it out can solve any issue. Sometimes people feel they have to hold things in and try to solve the issues on their own or ignore it. This will make the problem worse and build walls into your relationship. The best advice to sustaining a lasting relationship is to TALK!! Never go to your family and friends about your issues either because they can make the issues worse and may give you advice that you do not need. If you feel that you cannot do anything else and you and your partner have talked it out and nothing else is working, then the last thing to do is separate. Sometimes it's hard to let go, but it is better to be happy by yourself than to be unhappy in a relationship. Trust me. I know the feeling.
One more thing before I go! Do not go looking for love online. This is just my opinion. Getting with a quick encounter or expressing your issues to a complete stranger can make you feel vulnerable and open to more heartbreak. Just take it a day at a time. Don't rush love, let love come to you.
