1. Care deeply
Caring is very important for any relationship – especially your intimate relationship with your partner. Learn to show a genuine interest in what’s going on in your partner’s life. This tells them that they truly matter to you; and they’ll go out of their way to reciprocate the affection.
2. Give freely
Give 100% to your relationship; not 50%. Many times, we fall into the trap of thinking that a relationship is meant to be 50-50 between both partners. Rather than 50-50, think 100% for yourself – and give everything you’ve got.
If you give 100% and your partner gives you their 100%; isn’t it better than 50-50? Even if your partner is not able to give the same kind of things that you do, just let them give in their own way ‘cos we don’t all have the same capacity.
3. Be available
Time is your greatest resource and you give it to those that matter to you. You need to make a conscious decision to reserve enough time for your partner – no excuses.
No matter how busy your schedule is at work, no matter how many kids you have to take care of, your partner must come first. If you get this right, your relationship is on track to more beauty.
4. Communicate clearly
Many of the fights and arguments people face in their relationships arise as a result of poor communication.
Be 100% present when communicating with your partner. Don’t be distracted and preoccupied with other things. Clear and frequent communication is the key to any sustainable relationship.
5. Love relentlessly
Don’t hold back in love. Love wholly and completely. Even when it seems that your partner is not showing you the same amount of love, just keep loving. Love always wins.
Wishing you the best in your relationship.
