Most of us want to be in a secured relationship. We can accept a little bit of fighting, arguments, small breaks, but when we are in a ‘dream-like’ relationship, we do not want it to break.
However, it doesn’t always turn out to be so. Now, more than ever, we have entered a phase where loyalty can go away with just one swipe.
However, long-term relationships still exist and have their charms. All you have to do is put a little bit of effort in it along with your partner. Here is how you can strengthen your long-term relationships:
1. Developing an emotional attachment
You have to make an emotional connection with your partner and keep it. To do so, you have to use all your five senses. How you will use it depends on you and how much you love your partner. But our five senses can play a significant role in making our relationships stronger and better. For example, if you maintain direct eye contact in a loving way with your partner, it can do wonders. Eyes – as they say- have magic in them.
2. Don’t take anyone for granted
You have to put in the effort to keep a relationship. It is often seen that once you pass 2-3 years in a relationship, you start taking it for granted. You no longer put in that required effort to last the relationship and this results in overlooking any hidden cracks in your ‘secured’ relationship. Soon enough, these cracks would grow bigger and go beyond repair. Eventually, the relationship falls apart. Be attentive to your partner and their needs. Mention your needs too. Make an effort to communicate and strengthen your relationship.
3. Share your goals
You and your partner have individual goals. However, it will give your relationship a great boost, if you and your partner start working together to a common goal. Share your life goals, and see how your partner can help you out in it. Let them share their own goals as well and try to help them out. Together, you will grow in the relationship. You can even talk about your future once you trust that this relationship is what you want forever.
4. Personal space
While both of you might share goals and join your forces to make things happen, none of you should breach the personal space of another. Sometimes, your partner will require their own time and space to do something on their own. Give them that opportunity. You can also have your personal space and communicate to your partner that you want that respected as well.
5. Make fun of one another
Don’t let ‘seriousness’ ruin the fun of relationships. Make fun of each other and bring joy to the relationship. However, don’t go overboard and make personal attacks. You can always tell jokes and mock each other in a loving way without being mean. Try to find that balance.
Work on your relationship and make the most of it. Best of luck.
