You are right to look in their direction and try to learn something from them. Here are some of their secrets and some tips to help you maintain a successful romantic relationship:
1. Trust yourself
It’s not all about you, but a lot of relationship issues find their sources in the two partners’ self-confidence. Indeed, before loving someone, you have be in full agreement with yourself, to love and trust yourself. Being in a couple is not an opportunity to hide behind someone’s back. Is he/she bright? Do not ask yourself why he/she is with you. Instead, be sure you make a good match. He/she also has the chance to be with someone like you. Without being overconfident, you should see yourself for what you are, and for what your partner sees in you.
2. Doze your jealousy
Being a couple means walking together in the same direction. Trusting each other is essential and directly related to your self-confidence. Your partner plans to have an evening out with friends in a bar? Give him/her some space and do not assault them with questions like: Where were you? Were there girls/guys? Jealousy is tiring and it certainly is the best way to send someone away.
3. Support each other
One of the best things about being in a couple is that you have someone to support you in times of need. Accept the encouragements, and adopt a similar attitude when your partner needs it. Anyone who is in a successful relationship will tell you that romantic partners are, first of all, honest and supporting friends to each other, and only afterwards, lovers.
4. Surprise each other
We all feel the consequences of routine, this rust that turns you and your sweetie into couch potatoes. We all have our little habits that fill our lives, but if you want to keep your relationship’s flame up, try not to get absorbed by daily routine without any twists into your life. Get out together, share new experiences. Remember that love is like a baby, it needs to be fed.
Open communication is the surefire way to a powerful relationship. It helps you get to know each other better, understand how you feel about different issues, and see the other’s point of view. Don’t build sand castles! Communicate with each other and your relationship’s foundations will be cemented in concrete.
6. Take some time for yourself
A relationship needs dedicated time, but this does not mean that each partner cannot have anything beside that. You still have your friends, your hobbies and your work! Dedicate some time to them and to yourself alone. A few hours apart from your partner will make you miss and appreciate each other more.
7. Be honest to each other
Sincerity is a sane basis for any kind of relationship. Be honest with each other communicate your feelings verbally or non-verbally. This will only make your connection stronger.
