Once you’ve found that special somebody, you know it. You get that feeling in your stomach, little butterflies every time you catch their eye, you know this is it. So the question is how do you keep that love you find? What can you do to keep it all ticking along and grow your relationship without them running three miles in the other direction. Here are some handy tips that you should to take to heart and use to keep the love you find with your partner.
- Open and honest communication. This is the key to every successful relationship that will last and last and last. You’ve got to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. If something is bugging you, it is up to you to communicate with your partner exactly what you are feeling. Being honest and truthful even when it feels uncomfortable is the way that you will keep the respect and honesty between the two of you. It’s a skill that will get better with time and practice, so don’t be discouraged if you’re finding it difficult at first. Don’t forget your significant other is also learning this skill and it takes time and practice to be comfortable with each other.
- The element of surprise. Have you ever noticed that some relationships just become stale after a while? They’ve kind of lost their pizazz? Even the most well connected relationships get stale after a while. It’s all part of the natural flow of the relationship, so don’t worry if you kind of feel bored, it’s normal. To jazz your relationship a bit, try branching out and trying a new activity together, or plan a vacation or trip to somewhere that the both of you have talked about but haven’t experienced yet. If you’re outdoorsy, try sky diving or horseback riding. If you like learning a new skill, try some cooking classes together and master the art of making that souffle.
- Don’t change yourself or your partner. Although you want to keep the relationship interesting, you should definitely not try and change you or your partner to suit your needs. Your guy fell in love with you, your personality and looks. There is no need to go changing yourself to try and win him over again. You’ve already done that. Likewise, even though your partner may have some habits you’re not crazy about, learn to live with them, adapt to them. Don’t try and change him, that’s the quickest way to lose his attention.
- Don’t rush into the ultimate commitment. Seriously. There is no rush to get to the altar. Even if all your girlfriends are heading to the church next June, it’s not a race. Your relationship is not all about the wedding, it’s about love, trust and a lifetime of memories. Take your time and really to get to know your guy. A wedding is just a day, a relationship is a lifetime, so really learn to take in all that’s good in your relationship and enjoy the ride.
