Five Ways to Keep Your Relationship Flowery!

Falling in love is cool. The task ahead, however, is the ability to maintain it, probably until a red light appears. It's no secret that as relationships keep fading away, yonder memories too fade. So the big task then would be sustaining the heat.

 

While many relationships are not the same, here are some simple tips that can help all couples keep their bond going strong.

Being Respectful

A relationship should be a peace haven, an igloo in which partners literally trust and share openly without fear.  This call for fighting fairly; so much so that there is no interrupting your partner, calling your partner names or using derogatory language to attack. If you're too angry to listen to yet another word coming out of your partner's mouth, just distance yourself and calm down.  Then initiate the discussion when both of you have a clear head, probably tomorrow morning.

You just have to mind your manners. Phew! It doesn’t hurt to use courteous language when you are with your partner. Probably it has been long in your relationship and everything is just getting easy, and probably you can say anything. It won’t kill for saying “Thank you” for a good treat.

That Quality Time Is A Must Give!

Quality time is not sitting next to your partner with your eyes glued to your phone. Just because you're sitting next to your partner doesn't mean your spending time together. Spending quality time can be as easy as watching a movie together. Actually you just have to find a sport or a hobby that you both love, whether it is biking, dancing, cooking – which many find less captivating - or building new furniture, and do it together. This is yet another opportunity to discover more about your partner.

Spice it Up through Variety

Expecting different results out of a similar experiment is just awry. That’s being boring. Dullness definitely leads to dissatisfaction. Spicing up the relationship with a little novelty is a great gateway to keep you and your partner from getting bored. Taking a walk rejuvenates.

Trying something new can mean greatness. Start dining in a new restaurant or just travel to a new destination together. If you have been doing Jivanjee Gardens, it is time you tried Arboretum, probably it can work magic! Such new adventures amongst couples will help preserve the intimacy and love in a relationship.

Just give to take

Giving and taking all the time will surely make any relationship goes sour.  Giving all the time can breed resentment and taking all the time may lead to apathy. Which way then?

Before you get to do something for your partner, you two must agree. You don’t have to disadvantage either side. Actually the greatest way to avoid an argument is to reaching having a genuine course for the discussion.

You don’t have to set the demands too high to be reached by your best half. So the next time you want your partner to take you to see a new car in the showroom, ensure you have also taken her in a salon, just keep waiting for her hair to be done.  Don’t compromise.

Absence Makes a Heart Grow Fonder

A little moment doesn’t hurt anyone. It is good to keep up with your friends. But again, having your own interests and occasionally having a night out without your partner cannot actually help your relationship grow stronger. Go out with them, probably after this January, a broke month! Not only will a weekend trip with your buddies (without your significant other) make you and your partner miss each other more, it'll also help you keep your friends... just in case you need a shoulder to cry on when the relationship doesn't work out!
