- Communicate. Proper communication is key to any healthy relationship. Always express your true feelings and encourage your partner to do the same. Proper communication also includes you listening to everything your partner says. When he or she is talking, never interrupt.
- Always be honest. When you and your significant other communicate, always be genuine. Never lie about your feelings or actions. If you aren’t caught right away, lying can lead to problems between you and your partner down the road and this will never lead to a healthy relationship.
- Never go to sleep angry and always solve your problems as soon as possible. Allowing problems to be forgotten or swept under the rug can make things even worse. Make sure you resolve any conflicts the same day that they arise.
- Be patient with one another. If your significant other is trying to accommodate to your needs by changing a bad habit, give them time. Also, it might take a little time for your message to get across to your partner. Remember to be patient, and you'll maintain a healthy relationship.
- Don’t let the romance die. The occasional surprise or spontaneous trip will keep your romantic fire going. It doesn’t take much to keep it going. In most relationships the romance is often abandoned after marriage or having children, don’t let that happen to yours.
- Appreciate each other. Take a moment to appreciate everything that you do for one another. Always remember to say thank you.
- Respect is a must. Never disrespect, or judge each other’s ideas or opinions. Respect also includes giving each other space. Both men and women crave time away from their partner in order to enjoy watching football or go shopping with the girls. Always allow your partner the freedom to have time away from you.
- Remain calm at all times. Yelling will never help any situation. Cussing and name calling will always exacerbate every situation. Speaking calmly will prevent you from saying hurtful things and it will speed up the process of ending a fight.
- Be flexible. If the two of you can’t agree on a situation, be willing to compromise. The two of you should be willing to step out of your comfort zone and possibly change in order to make the other happy and maintain a healthy, loving relationship.
