Relationships aren’t easy, it takes two to make the foundations stronger and only dedication and constant efforts can help you achieve that. Everybody wants to be happy in their relationship, but often they don’t do the things that are an absolute requirement. But, the happy couples make sure that they are doing these things that actually help them to achieve a stronger and longer relationship.
If you want your relationship to be like those of the happy couples, you need to start doing these things!
1. Communicate no matter what happens.
One thing that all of us lack in us is communication. Sometimes, we let our ego get the better of us and instead of communicating and working it out we tend to ignore each other.
2. Have common interests.
It is not necessary that the two of you always will have the same interests, but you can come halfway, and cultivate some common interests that will help you spend time together more easily.
3. Share time together.
It’s very easy to declare yourself as busy to not have time for your partner. But, think of it the other way around, would you really feel happy with such a harsh response? I don’t think so, so make time, no matter when it is.
4. Don’t hesitate with the cuddles and kisses.
As much as the mental compatibility counts, physical closeness is also a major determining factor on how happy the relationship will be, a little PDA doesn’t hurt, and hey, who doesn’t love cuddles and kisses?
5. Say “I love you” and mean it.
These days, saying “I love you” means absolutely nothing, because people say it without even meaning it, but if you really love the person you’re with, you should be saying it more often.
6. Have inside jokes.
There’s nothing better than having your own inside jokes that can make you giggle even in a room full of people without them understanding one bit of it.
7. Go out on dates.
I don’t know why is going out on dates becoming so old fashioned these days? Isn’t that one of the best parts of any relationship? Well, you don’t need to go to a fancy restaurant, all you need is lunch or dinner date, McDonald’s works too!
8. Pay zero attention to their phones.
Yep, one thing that can really feel one appreciated is having your undivided attention. So, happy couples make sure that the little time they get with their partners is fully utilized with zero distractions.
9. When they speak of their future they include their partners in it.
People who are only interested in “Hookups” can gladly skip this point, but those of you who are in it for real, make sure you include your partner when you talk of your future because that’s what the couples who are in it to win it, do.
10. They are not afraid of showing off their partners.
Last but not least, if you claim to love someone don’t be afraid or ashamed to show them off, they are after all yours and vice versa.
