Being in a relationship is so much more than you think. Outside of this, you have friends, yes. However, being in a relationship means you two have a friendship you do not have with others. Its a different kind of friendship… So deep and other people will not understand it.
It’s not only about the happy times. There will be struggles and problems. You will face them together. As partners. And you will be fine in the end! After all, in the end, when you two are through a difficulty together, you will be even stronger.
An advice… Find the time to laugh with your partner over silly jokes and moments/memories. It might not happy often, due to many reasons such as work, families and life in general. But once in a while, you must share a laugh about something and make memories, in this case funny ones, to look back to.
People make mistakes and everyone has flaws that will get into our nerves. There will be expectations, from our part that someone will not meet. In such cases, we need to remind ourselves that being patient is so important. Give your partner a break.
You might have thought, this person there, the one you are in love with, is perfect. But in the end of the day, no one is. And neither are you, for that matter. And what are you meant to do in that case? Compromise of course. There will be plenty of times when you will disagree on things, on their choices, with their dreams… And you might argue about some of these things. But you must compromise. That’s what love is about too.
In a long term relationship, compliments just tend to be forgotten. They’re long gone, deleted, no more. But once in a while, tell your partner how beautiful her hair is, or how nice he looks in that new shirt. You have nothing to lose!
Day by day, we live our lives and we barely think that romance is still important in a relationship, especially in a long term one! But, let me tell you this. It is important! Being romantic is not a chore to be bored of. One must take time to visit that side and plan a dinner, a date at a restaurant, anything that will make this relationship be, once again, as exciting as it was in the beginning!
This might be a thing important enough for every kind of relationship. It’s a trait someone must have in their every day life. You and your partner should have the same vision and in an argument, there are no winners. Just listen. Be humble and listen.
Have faith. And truth that person you love. As times goes by, you will come to feel more comfortable with them, and you might forget the important things.Including your faith. Being grateful is important.
