It has been said that a good relationship starts in us, now.....how to make it last?
Trust and understand eachother by commitment and showing respect
You really can't make anything last, especially when it involves another individual. The only thing that you can make last is the relationship that you have with yourself. Being consistent with what you stand for, knowing and understanding what is priority as well as is important to you! Having respect for self and standing firm in constructive decisions and expectations. You cannot continuously feature relationships that do not coincide with your thoughts, lifestyles and interest. You'll be wasting time while trying to make nothing into something. It doesn't work that way....... both individuals will work to make "it" last because they want to hold on to what they have.
The best way to try to ensure it lasts -- keep looking inward whenever there's a problem, find your part in it, and learn from it. Never stop trying to do something special for the other person, even if it's something as simple as doing the dishes. Treat them with the utmost of respect, kindness, and love, and always watch closely for cues about what they want and need from you.
That said...I would also add that it is equally important to find someone who will do all of this for you in return, allowing you to have a mutually happy and supportive relationship. Don't expect that they'll get it right off the bat -- you won't either -- but make sure you both have the same kind of values for a relationship before deciding on a lifetime.

Can bad sex ruin a good relationship?If you're really in love with someone do you think it's possible for a relationship to work around bad sex (not intimacy)? With all other aspects of the relationship in working order can this type of relationship survive?

What exactly is self worth? Is it truly defined by words alone, or does one need to see actions accompany those words as well? My self worth fluctuates between empowerment and self destruction; as if comparing the powers of the sweltering sun to the power of pond scum. On days...
