With the increase of unnecessary breakups and divorce which has affected lots of families one way orghe other, I took time out to make reseach on tips (little tips) that we all forget. Tips that could save anyones relationship.
The tips mentioned applies to both male and female. Humble consideration and application would lead to a postive outcome in a relationship.1 Make Sure You Use The Right Words
Refering to you and your partner as “we”, you are subconsciously considering both of you to be a single entity.
This word enhances bonding and trust in a big way – even if your partner is not physically around. Couples who used the word “we” tend to be calmer, happier and more satisfied with their relationship when compared to those who use “you” or “I.”2 Show Gratitude Always
When you start feeling grateful for the things that your partner says and does even the little things, your relationship is sure to blossom. According to research which shows that gratitude reduces feelings of hate and pain as you tend to focus only on the positive side of your partner.
Such positive feelings go a long way in maintaining relationships.3 Be Open Minded
Definitely remember not expect to be happiness all the time. Be open to disappointments/disagreements, too, and use them as an opportunity to know your partner better.
This is particularly relevant for long-distance relationships , as lack of physical presence increases friction. A positive attitude during such difficult times leads to happier relationships.
Successful couples have the ability to solve problems and let it go. To suceed too you need to focus on taking care of the issue rather than attacking the person.4 Always Communicate
While in a relationship it would be useful to make a self survey, for instance.
You might ask yourself the following:
Does your partner’s communication lift you up, or bring you down? Is your partner’s communication with you “soft on the person, firm on the issue,” or the other way around? What about your communication with your partner?
If your relationship suffers from ineffective communication, there is always a room for improvements. You can quickly and put to use immediately the use of effective communication.
Communication tends to increase trust in a relationship, every relationship needs trust.5 Express Your Love And Emotions
Although it’s true that actions speak louder than words, words often speak more clearly than actions. Take a moment every now and then to verbalize your feelings for your partner. A simple “I love you” or “You mean the world to me” can go a long way towards making your significant other feel wanted, cared for, and secure in your relationship.
You might not know, the truth is the littlest touch can be as important, or even more
important, than the longest night of sexual intimacy.
