Nobody, I repeat, nobody who truly loves you would ask something materialistic or be happy only if showered with expensive gifts. It’s the little things that matter.

2. Divide chores or even do it all if the other person can’t do it on a particular day.

Believe me, you don’t realize how much thus appreciated, you people live together so the chores should be equal responsibility and not burdening someone with it all.

3. Grow together.

The one who loves you will never ask you to dim their light so that they can shine better. They always encourage you to shine with the brightest glow and in return, they’d try to make themselves better as well.

4. Reject jealousy and learn to trust.

No relationship can survive for long enough if you don’t trust the other person. Jealousy is okay as long as it is made as a joke, but to restrict someone to do certain things or meet certain people only because you are jealous is just BS. Similarly, it is absolutely not funny to toy around or pokes at someone’s insecurities, you’ll just be creating a rift between the two of you.

5. Support each other.

If your partner shares their dreams and goals with you it really means that they are certain that you’d be supporting them to achieve their goals in life. So, make sure you keep encouraging them to work harder towards achieving their goal.

6. Have at least one meal in the day together.

The happy couples that eat together stay together, well, you may not realize this, but this is one of the absolute romantic things that a couple can do, they not only get to be eating together but you can also share about your day and catch up with each other’s change in preferences.

7. Don’t stop living your own lives.

You were two different people when not in a relationship, and you two are still very much allowed to do so. Don’t get caught up with the other person so much that you forget that you exist as an individual.

8. Don’t make saying I love you a job that you’ve got to do.

Sometimes people say it just for the sake of saying it, don’t do this, instead, say this when you really feel that you can’t bear a second without saying it.

9. Take a day or two off and spend time with them.

Everybody loves to be appreciated and pampered take them out be with them spend an entire day together doing all the things that you love to do together.

10. Respect for each other.

You can never think of long term until and unless you have respect for the other person, as much as love is required for a relationship to survive so is respect.
