4 Simple Ways to Improve Your Relationship
CONROE, TX, November 15, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Relationships can be tough. We spend all this time finding trying to find the right person only to let the passion fizzle once we’ve become comfortable. It doesn’t take much effort to be a better partner, it’s just a series of little things that often go ignored.
Find the right balance of saying “I love you” and showing it
Saying “I love you” multiple times a day can water down its effectiveness. Similarly, rarely saying “I love you” even if you believe that the other person should know from your actions can lead your partner to feel unloved. Making sure that you’re always showing the person you love that you love them is important, but also saying it a few times a week goes a long way. Find the right balance for your relationship and it will be unlikely that either of you is ever left wondering, “do they love me?”
Furthermore, it’s not just important to show your partner that you love them, you must also show that you appreciate them. Thank your partner when they do something nice for you, spend quality time with them, compliment them, and praise them. Remember how you treated your partner when you first started dating, remember how you did all these things and how it made the two of you feel.
Reignite the spark in the bedroom
Routine sex is never a good thing. Whether you’re just getting tired of the same thing over and over again, or you are having sex more or less often than you’d like, sex can definitely be a factor that causes strain on the relationship.
Let’s address the latter first. Different people want different amounts of sex, and that amount changes over time, so it is not a compatibility issue. Compromise and communication are the solutions here. If your partner wants to have sex every night and you prefer to have sex about once a week, see if you can’t settle somewhere in the middle. This isn’t to say that either one of you should have sex when you truly don’t want to, but compromise over the amount of sex you have can help the relationship from growing sour. You don’t want to neglect your partner, but you also don’t want to coerce your partner into having sex when they don’t want to.
Now that you’ve come up with a tentative schedule that works for both of you, you must keep the sex itself from getting stale. This is completely subjective. Some couples can have sex the same way for years and enjoy it equally every time, other get bored quickly. How you add some spice back into your relationship needs to be approached with understanding. Your partner might not be willing to try the new sex toy you want to buy or the position that you read about, but an open and honest dialog can help you find out each other’s limits and where to work from there.
Listen and communicate
Communication is the key to being a better partner. Both listening to your partner and talking to your partner are integral to a healthy relationship. Don’t focus on each other’s shortcomings, but also don’t let things that truly upset you to fester unaddressed.
Many problems between partners begin with a lack of communication. Expecting your partner to be a mind reader or know you well enough to predict your preferences in subjects you’ve never discussed is unrealistic, and can add to the strain in a relationship.
It’s not just about communicating your needs or wants to each other though, it’s also about just being there for one another. If your partner wants to complain about their co-worker, listen and agree, be supportive and let your significant other know that you’re always there for them and that you’re always on their side.
Don’t worry if you’re right or wrong
Arguments are going to happen. They’re unavoidable and one could argue that they’re actually helpful, but is it more important for you to be right or happy? While it’s good to take responsibility, admit when you’re wrong, and apologize, it’s not always good for you to force that out of another. It’s definitely understandable that you could be unmovable on some subjects, but sometimes you need to give up and stop demanding that you are right, even if you are.
While arguments are inevitable, stupid arguments don’t have to be. If you’re not passionate about something, don’t argue. It will be better for both of your happiness in the long run.
