There are all sorts of relationships that we all go through. But the most cherished one at the end is the great relationship we have with our life partner. Although there is no real secrets to a great relationship, there are many tips or keys for one. When you live and spend almost all the time you got after work with someone, it is natural to find a fault in other and commit mistakes on your side as well. So we will go ahead and discuss what makes a great relationship.
Like the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, before your relationship start to suffer from fights and obstacles you should look for things you can do to prevent you relationship from falling apart from the start. If your relationship has already fallen apart and you are thinking about fixing it, that’s not bad either. Every relationships are meant to go through ups and downs stages, but there are things you can do to avoid them from happening at a bigger scale. Usually we are attracted so much to our partner at the beginning that it starts to feel like you have met the best person in the world and you two are truly a match made in heaven. As the attraction wanes away, we begin to notice bad traits and other negative characters that we never observed before. That’s natural.
For that reason, it is always better to be and act natural the way you are. Just be honest. If you are really going to have a great relationship with your partner, your real self will eventually come out at some point. That way atleast you will know if he will really like you even after the initial sparks die.
Focus on the positives. Why were you attracted to that person at the first place? Was it the personality, hobbies, interests, character or the smile? Even if it was just the looks, focus on that. Sometimes it can help face the problems and challenges your partner as well as life has to throw at you. Consequently, you will be happy and content.
Communicate effectively with your love. Effective communication require both good listening as well as talking skills, which is not very hard if you really love and care about him. Great relationships require that you know what he is trying to say and be able to let him understand the message you are trying to convey.
Never begin and end the day in a bad mood. Always be happy and laugh around with her even though you just got home tired and stressed out from work to end the day. You can also wake up early and make a hot coffee, prepare a breakfast or bring a coffee for her. This shows you are truly in love with her. But just don’t expect her to do the same for your the next day. Reveal your good sense of humor.
Be able to put yourself in others shoes. That means, if your partner is complaining and you disagree with her argument, then try to see the current situation from her view points. That will help clear up a lot of misunderstandings. That also include putting an end to taking yourself too seriously. Life is wasted if you spend time in distress.
Share quality time together. Sometime as our relationship gets old, we get too busy with the work life that we ignore the important role sharing time together plays in our life. It is basically everything.
