Relationships can be hard work, and they do not come without a set of challenges. If you're looking to keep your relationship balanced, healthy, open and honest, here are the top 10 simple secrets of lasting love:
Always uphold a routine of asking your partner about their day or offer to give them a hand with the groceries. Never underestimate the power of small, sweet gestures.
2) Little Surprises
Bring home flowers for no reason, or surprise your partner with baseball tickets just because. Keeping things interesting and slightly spontaneous boosts the thrill-factor in your relationship.
3) Avoid Fighting When Traveling
It's sometimes best to bite your tongue and enjoy your surroundings. As much as communication is vital, avoiding petty fights and focusing on the memories you're making is sometimes more worthwhile.
A "good morning" kiss or a kiss as you leave for work is something you should build into your routine, always.
5) Don't Share TMI With Friends
Don't dish out info that you know would embarrass your partner when chatting with friends. Leave a barrier of respect that you will not cross.
6) Say "I Love You"
Like kisses, "I Love You" should be worked into your day. You can never have enough of these 8 little letters.
7) Chill Out Together
Sometimes it's nice to forget a fancy dinner and watch some Netflix in your PJs together.
8) Embrace Fighting
Fighting maturely, openly and with proper communication is the best way to tackle arguments. But accept the fact that fights occur, and always avoiding them could create a bigger problem than just letting them happen.
9) Text Back
Don't over-text, but always reply and keep your partner informed.
10) Love Without Conditions
It can be as simple as that to making a bond last a lifetime.
