    What's your secret to having a successful relationship?

    I am not sure if I am having a successful one but here goes.

    There is basically no secret for that. You need to be honest to one another. The more secrets you keep from your partner, the more chance there will be an issue popping up in the future.

    Communicate with one another and always try to give and take. Understanding each other is vital as without understanding, there is probably no relationship.

    At times, there are things not meant to be discussed to avoid unwanted understanding. Some do not agree with me but for me, some matters are just not meant to be discussed along.

    Besides that, always remember not to go straight into serious discussion when talking. Always be patience and try to talk things out when something happen. Also, remember that one side have to be more patience.

    Hope this answers your question.

    I don't think there is any "secret".
    Selecting the "right mate" for yourself is the key.
    "There is no amount of (communication) or (work) that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want."

    I think that mutual trust and respect are really important. I think that sometimes relationships get lost when one person feels that they "own" the other person and tries to control them....love, respect and trust are lost.
    I agree with Jim TxMiller that you should treat the other person the way you want to be treated.

    Think of a relationship as a tree. It takes long long years of nurturing to have a tree which is deep rooted. So is with relationship, it needs constant nurturing. The nurturing is done through "communication" and "trust" along with "mutual acceptance of flaws of self and the partner".

    There are a few factors:
    1. Attraction
    2. Friendship
    3. Trust
    4. Communication

    In order for there to be a relationship that has any chance at being successful, there has to be attraction.
    In order for the relationship to be enjoyable, you should have some commonalities and know each other fairly well. This is usually best done through friendship first.
    In order for the relationship to evolve and grow in a healthy way, you need to trust and be honest with each other. If you don't, chances are jealousy and paranoia will build on one or both sides.
    In order to maintain a happy, healthy relationship, communication is key. Without it you would never know how your partner feels and vice versa. Disagreements and arguments are part of a normal, healthy relationship (if they aren't a constant issue), and talking through them and reaching a compromise will strengthen your relationship.
