Ways to Create a Strong, Intimate Relationship
There are ways that ruin relationships, but why only focus on the negative? Let’s focus on how you can create a strong relationship instead.
Don’t Go For Broke
A strong relationship isn’t built on how much money you spend on each other, but the time and effort you put forth in the relationship. That in the end will be the key to making your relationship last.
Know Where You Stand
Don’t leave your partner dazed and confused. Speak up. Again, communicate.
Don’t Focus On Your Flaws
Focusing on your flaws and your partner’s flaws. Instead focus on how you can make yourself a better person and focus on your each of your strengths. You want to have positivity in your relationship and you also want to be able to pick each other up, not put each other down.
No More Flirting With Others
Once you are in a relationship you should not be flirting with anyone but your partner Period.
Every once in a while, get out of your relationship comfort zone. The longer you stay there, the more boring your relationship becomes and the faster your relationship starts to burn out.
A Little Romance Please
Romance is important so don’t knock it. Romance is the fire in the fireplace — the warmth and security of a relationship.
Focus On Giving Love
Real love is priceless. You can’t put a price on it no matter how hard you try. Focus on giving from your heart, not your wallet.
Keep It Simple On Social Media
Don’t broadcast your relationship for all social media to see. Because once you have your fights or disagreements, those “strangers” or friends will be part of that as well. A relationship works best when the only people involved are the two people in the relationship.
Spend Quality Time Together
Just don’t spend time together, go the extra mile. If you can’t spend every weekend together, then make it up by spending a few hours each week together.
Smile and give each other googly eyes! The saying is true, “Silence speaks a thousand words.” Especially when you the two of you are smiling at each other. It always shows that you don’t need to fill each minute you are together with words.
Have Fun Apart
Everyone has interests that their partner might not enjoy. This is more than okay. It’s good to be able to go out on your own and have some fun without your partner.
Show Proper Affection
Don’t be all over each other in public, that type of affection is for closed doors. But hold hands, hug and a little kiss in public shows not only others, but each other that you are care for each other.
Don’t be afraid to get corny and share a laugh every now and then. Laughter is the best medicine for a reason.
Be Willing To Learn From Each Other
You can learn something new about yourself and about life through looking towards your partner’s life. If he or she brings something positive to your life, let them know. Nothing brings two people closer together than sharing something about each other.
Communication is about the way people talk and listen, and about body language. When you have effective communication, you are able to make decisions, share feelings, and organize our lives.
