** Try your best to love your partner unconditionally even if it seems hard not to be selfish.
** Think from your partner’s perspective when it comes to matters of the heart.
** End an argument as soon as possible, even if hugging your partner is the last thing on your mind.
** Make love regularly, but never allot times for it. Scheduling a time for sex makes it a chore that can start to become a bore.
** Communicate with each other and grow together in love, but never grow apart with lack of communication as the years pass by.
** Learn to give space to each other to become better individuals. Even the closest of relationships need some alone time to miss each other now and then.
**Never take each other for granted. This is the easiest way to fall prey to affairs and arguments.
** Say a white lie when you need to, especially if it’s a little lie that won’t change your relationship, but will make your partner feel happy.
** Never shy away from positive criticism. As long as you say it in a constructive manner, it’ll help your partner become a better person.
** Be the shoulder to lean on, no matter what. Tough times are the most testing phases of a relationship. Stand by your partner, and when the storm ends, love will shine brighter.
** Never argue in public, but indulge in public display of affection.
** Date each other even if you’ve been together for years. It keeps the love alive.
** Look sexy for each other, and that includes a flat tummy. Just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean you should let yourself go and look shabby.
** Compliment your partner, even if it’s a regular chore or habit. Compliments are the best way to thank a special someone for the effort they’ve taken for you, however small it may be.
** Celebrate the special days. Birthdays and anniversaries may repeat itself too many times, but it’s these milestones that create memories.
** Never intentionally try to make your partner feel bad or look bad. It’ll leave a lasting scar that can hurt the relationship.
** Learn to forgive without holding grudges. As hard as it may be, forgiveness is one of the qualities of true love that matters most in a relationship.
** Respect your partner whole heartedly.
** Understand that your partner can have crushes on others too. It’s a difficult thought, but if you admire someone else, so can your partner.
**Trust your partner and your instincts, even if others say otherwise.
** Never grumble or badmouth each other even if you’re tempted to, out of anger or frustration.
** Learn to spend quality time with each other. There’s no better way to fall more in love with each other as the relationship grows.
** Behave like children now and then. A few pillow fights or cute wrestles can never hurt anyone. But it can help both of you enjoy the relationship.
** Be spontaneous with your affections. Don’t always wait for special occasions or moments to express your love. Spontaneous surprises are always happier than planned surprises.
** Whatever works! No relationship is alike. Instead of learning from someone else’s relationship, learn from your own relationship’s successes and failures.
