    Think of some great vacation spots. If you're dead broke, like most of America, just take a walk or drive out to somewhere you've never been and bring up some intriguing new conversations. I love new things, something unexpected. A little surprise, maybe! It's always great to be unexpected. Good luck!

    I find the best way to know the little things about each other and twang those strings every now and again. If your man loves nothing more than when you all sit around and watch a movie and make out like it! If you love to get massaged and spoiled by being waited on hand and foot, make sure he knows!
    It's all about the little things in life.

    Trust and communication!  My partner and I have had a fantastic 18 year relationship and we're looking forward to as many as we can get out of life.  The biggest factor - we talk.  We don't argue, mainly because I had enough of that when growing up with my father.  When first getting together we agreed if a discussion was heating up, we'd call a 'time out'.  The time out strategy gives you both space to think about what you want to say and how to say it.  Also, you get time to calm down.  We catch up with each other after a few hours and work out the issue.  This has worked every time, to the point we now don't even have time out, because we approach issues calmly from the start.

    Yes, hard work to begin with, but the results are well worth the effort. Our love is strong and now that we work together this strategy has proven invaluable.

    Love, like ( it's amazing how many people say they love another, but don't even like them), laughter, communication, mutual respect and forgiveness!

    communication is key. also time. making time for one another is a must. surprises. do something out of the ordinary. dont get too comfortable with the routine cause you both will be getting tired of the same thing over and over.

    little things. i love surprising my wife with a flower or go for a ride and stop someplace and have a picnic that she didn't know i was setting up. a little kiss when there is no reason is better then a box of jewels anytime.

    A relationship remains alive and healthy when there is :--
    Trust, Mutual respect, Genuine love, Caring and helping attitude, Good communication, Good friendship, Forgiveness and Compromise.

    You should have time for each other, know each other well,know each other's likes and dislikes, make adjustments, avoid unnecessary arguments , laugh together and be kind to each other.
