Even with hundreds of friendships, boyfriends or girlfriends, professors or co-workers that becomes a part of one’s life, many people are still confused on how to keep a relationship strong. When it comes to romantic relationships, millions of people worldwide are still searching for the secrets to keep a bond strong, make a relationship last and ensure he or she will be the one until they say, “I do”. Even celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt and Beyonce Knowles all showed great interest in this aspect.If you want to know how to keep someone in your life, it is important that you understand the things you may unconsciously do that may ruin relationships along with its consequences. For instance, blaming one another for things wherein both of you have faults can simply be a reason for a lifetime of blaming, shame and criticism.
When relationships start to break down, you and your partner may have missed performing these three important things – affection, apology and action. When you know it’s your fault, forget about pride and hug him or her instantly. Apologize for your actions and promise not to do the same thing again. Remember that keeping relationships stronger do not depend only on the good things, but also on how bad things have changed you to become a better couple.
Couples that have lasted several years together can sometimes feel that their relationships have grown stale. When this happens, one of you has to take action. You need to regain the “honeymoon days” by taking a romantic getaway, spending guiltless hours on a motel or having a 10-hour conversation without interruptions. Be aware that the longer your relationships are, the staler they tend to be. If you don’t act before it’s too late, you’ll be spending a very dull love life that could possible end in divorce.
Lack of communication is one of the greatest things that could destroy a relationship.This is because men do not think the way as women do, and vice versa. Because of this, he or she may think differently of the actions you present. Regardless of how long you’ve been together, it is important to schedule a “quality time” that you and your partner could talk things out. You may disagree about hundreds of things during a conversation, but at least you know what the other likes and dislikes.
Don’t be discouraged by debates or argumentations, it is a normal part of relationships. By giving continuous affection, apologizing, taking action, spending quality time, and taking time to talk things out, your relationships can become a healthier and stronger one.
