According to studies, couples breakup because of buildups of small things that are done in the relationship and often ignored. Being in a solid relationship is one of the best things you will experience in your life so you want to make sure your relationship is as happy and also healthy that it can be! With a little effort on you and your partners part, you can easily achieve this! Read on!
Small Things Matter
As mentioned earlier, small things matter a lot. Many healthy and happy relationships are built on the positive things that couples do to each other. You know what annoys your partner so as tempting as it might be (sometimes) to do these things, don’t. They may seem small but they do add up over time. A happy partner is the best partner so put your best foot forward when it comes to the small things.
Communication is Key
Today there are many ways to communicate in a relationship yet people don’t use them. Sending text messages or written notes may look like outdated modes of communication but they work like a charm in a relationship. Try sending your partner a special message mid-day when you are apart or you can chat online via Whatsup, Skype or many other free apps. Face to face communication is usually best to foster intimacy and should never be ignored because it is the best time to iron out any differences or concerns you might be having. Communicating your needs, wants or just communicating about your day are ways to make sure you have a healthy and happy relationship.
Go Out On a Date
The more dates that you have, the healthier and happier your relationship will be. No matter how busy you are you must make time for each other and go on a few dates a month. If you have been to online dating websites like Happymatches blog, you will find that all people are looking for a partner who they can enjoy life with. Date night allows you to stay current with each other’s lives and just catch up on what has been going on with each other.
Crack Jokes Together
You do not have to be a comedian to make your partner laugh. There are many jokes or funny stories that both of you can share. You can also visit comedy shows in your area on date night or watch comedy on TV together. Laughter isn’t just good for the soul—it’s good for lasting love and a happy relationship. For many people being able to laugh together (and at each other) is a major factor for relationship success.
Intimacy, whether emotional or sexual, is crucial in making a healthy relationship. Be ready to learn what makes your partner happy as far as intimacy is concerned. It may be a learning and ever-changing process for both of you but be sure to show interest and invest the effort! One thing to know is that lack of intimacy can kill a relationship within a short time so you don’t want your relationship to go down that slippery slope. A healthier and happier relationship is in store for you when you make intimacy a part of your relationship.
