7 Sure Shot Ways to Make a Relationship Successful
Ask any grown man or woman about their true desires; nine out of ten will mention having a warm, fulfilling relationship among other things. Yet, it’s difficult to know how best to make a relationship work. Divorce rates are on the rise every year. Everyone has had their heart broken at least once or many times. What’s happening? Why is it that something that people want so badly isn’t working out for them? The fact is though we have been to the moon and back, we don’t know how to make a happy relationship. Here are seven sure shot ways to make a relationship successful.
1. Be careful before committing
Relationships don’t always break because of incompatibility issues; most relationships erode in time as they weren’t supposed to have begun, in the first place. Do you want a relationship because you are desperately trying to get over your ex or want it to fix your boredom? If your answer to any of the questions is yes, don’t go for a relationship. Go for an engaging hobby, instead. Relationships need a lot of care and love. If you are unable to be involved, sooner or later, you or your partner will notice. This will create further tensions and unhappiness. There are other kinds of errors too. Are you considering a guy fully on his looks or bank balance? If so, expect to be disappointed. So, take a moment. Think why you want a relationship in the first place. It’s always better to look before you leap.
2. Appreciate your partner
Many women go into a relationship expecting to change their partners to fit the image of “Mr Right” they have in their minds. You should never do this. You liked him in the first place for who he is, not because who you want him to be. Nothing can be as tiring as being judged by your partner, all the time. So, appreciate him for the person he is, even though, you find some of his habits irritating. Relationships are all about adjusting and accepting, remember?
3. Show your appreciation
It’s very important to show how much you appreciate him. This doesn’t have to be extravagant in terms of buying expensive gifts and all. A well-timed cup of coffee, a small “thank you” note, an unexpected kiss or a slow back massage at the end of a day can say it all. Men are huge suckers for such sweet little gestures. Soon, you may see him doing unexpected sweet things for you, as well. And your relationship will go strong as ever.
4. Don’t maintain a log book of favors
For many, it’s a hard thing to do, but learn to be selfless in a relationship. Every time you do something nice for him don’t expect to be treated the same way. If he loves you, he will be as spontaneous as you are.
