  • Always support your partner and be his/her biggest cheerleader.

You don’t love because: you love despite; not for the virtues, but despite the faults! – William Faulkner

 

  • When you are together put away the phones and enjoy each other’s company. Let him/her know that they have your undivided attention.

  • Volunteering together will make your relationship stronger and you will give back to those that need help.
  • Ask a couple that have been together for a long period of time for a few relationship tips. Their experience can help in your relationship.
  • It is good to talk about past relationships, but don’t let them take over your current one. Leave the past where it belongs, in the past.
  • Tell your partner about all the things that make you fall in love with him/her even more. Every person needs to hear that, plus it boosts the confidence.
  • Appreciate what you have in your relationship for what it is and never compare your partner to other boyfriends/girlfriends.
  • Don’t let other people meddle in your relationship. You should both decide and do whatever makes you two happy.

In love there are two things – bodies and words! – Joyce Carol Oates

 

  • If you are mad and in the middle of the argument, take deep breaths and think twice before you say something you will regret later.
  • Don’t nag your partner about trivial things. Figure out what is really bothering you and communicate in a mature way. Nit-picking and constantly nagging him/her will get you nowhere.

  • Keep things fun and exciting, so every once in awhile plan something that will blow his/hers mind.
  • You and your partner should teach each other things that you are both good at.
  • Bring your friends and family members together. It can result in many fun experiences and it can be really cool to fuse your both worlds into one.
  • Make out as much as possible. Kissing will make you grow stronger and it will take you back in the high school days.

  • Don’t interrupt your partner when he/she is talking. Even if you find the conversation boring, it is important to hear him/her out.
