Relationships are tricky but as Woody Allen famously put, “we do it for the eggs.” Everyone loves to love and to be loved by someone special. However no matter how superficial you are; looks go away with age and you are left with just the bond that you share with your special someone. There are some things however, which can be done to increase the longevity of your relationship.
We have prepared a list of 20 things like those here:
1. Start and end your day with each other
Seeing the face of your beloved right after you wake up and right before you go to bed can be the most special thing. It will make your day bearable and your nights peaceful.
2. Accept each other’s imperfections
Because that’s what makes you and them what you are. It gives you your niche identity and it separates you from the rest.
3. Never take each other for granted
Life is short and very sneaky: You never know what might happen tomorrow. Things can work out in the worst of ways and you might end up alone.
4. Appreciate each other and show your concern
We understand that you have a busy schedule but make sure to check up on your partner. It takes 15 seconds to text and a minute to call. We can all expend that much.
5. Compliment them
Shows appreciation and valuing.
6. Show them they matter
By sacrificing the tiniest of things in the tiniest of ways if required.
7. Don’t be snooty
At least not to your partner. That’s the least you can do.
8. Make each other a better person
At least strive to do so. Encourage and push each other, in a positive way.
9. Don’t hold grudges
People make mistakes and unless it’s cheating, try not to hold it against them.
10. Show integrity
And don’t be conceited. Be honest about your feelings.
11. Share a laugh
Nothing makes bonds stronger than laughing together.
12. Don’t cheat on them
And keep their confidences private.
13. Forgive and forget
Let bygones go. They are called bygones for a reason.
14. Respect each other
This is because mutual respect separates the ideal relationship from the good/bad ones.
15. Support their dreams
Because everyone requires help, physical and/or emotional sometimes.
16. Pamper them
Because that’s what love is about. Buy them something small or hug them when they least expect it.
Build it and make sure it stands.
New places and possibilities with each other.
19. Switch your phone off when you’re with them
Because they are worth more.
20. Never sleep angry or sad
Make sure to clean up before you go to bed.
