For most of the part, when we commit ourselves to a serious relationship, we see some sort of certainty and longevity. Initially, we leave no stone unturned for our accomplices to feel extraordinary and wanted. However, eventually, our interest starts dwindling and one of the partners begin to experience trust issues alongside loneliness and a sense of betrayal. Despite such hardships, there are people who undergo a smooth and enduring relationship. Remember, the right people will always give you all that you deserve. Not only materialistic stuff but also an ample amount of time, attention, and trust that works like a two-way trade.
So, here are a few ways to a long-lasting relationship, at least a lifetime of togetherness.
- Balance– Nobody wants a clingy partner for too long, but that does not at all mean that you won’t include your partner in the plans you make. Though you should devote your time to your friends as well, if not more, you must spend an equal amount of time with your partner. One of the ways is to acquaint them with your friends so that you do not have to miss out on anyone. Also, do not over depend on someone emotionally, you should be able to bear if they have a valid reason for not spending the day with you. There’s a thin line between giving space and taking for granted.
- Efforts– It is not essential to gift them something materialistic, in the era of stories and statuses, jot down letters for them. Nothing better than posting letters in case you’re in a long-distance relationship just like the old times. Your efforts matter the most, get your creative juices flowing and charge up your grey cells. Basically, do what they love and gift them something that makes them reminisce over their memory lane with you.
- Say No to Silence– Do not use the silence treatment to overcome your arguments and differences. Rather, communicate along with being a good listener. Discuss the issues honestly using emotion-laden language even if it hurts their feelings. Your partner will surely understand you and try resolving the root of the problem.
