Take TURNS — Relationship Tips

The success of any relationship requires hard work and determination on the part of both individuals invoived. Below are a number of simple things you will need to know to strengthen your union and make your relationship work.

Tips To Improve Your Relationship

  • Spend quality time together. Without quality time, your relationship will not grow. Set aside an hour a night, and at least one day a month when the two of you spend time exclusively together. If an hour is too much for you to begin with, start with twenty or thirty minutes and build it up from there.
  • Learn how to take turns. A good relationship is built on compromise and a great deal of give and take on both sides. It also requires the ability to take turns so that each person gets what they want some of the time.
  • Avoid being too clingy. Tell and show your partner how much you need him, but don't smother them, as that can make your partner feel trapped.
  • Learn how to listen to each other. Show interest when the other person is talking to you.
  • Learn how to appreciate each other. Say something good about your mate and treat each other with kindness. Smile lovingly and approvingly, and do it often. This will go a long way in your relationship.
  • Find ways to be more intimate with each other and fulfill each others needs and desires.
  • Learn to forgive each other. Try not to hold grudges for a long time or it will damage your relationship.
  • Love your mate inspite of his flaws. Remember that you have flaws as well.
  • Learn how to communicate better. If something bothers you, let it be known. If not, bitterness and resentment will soon follow. Express your problems and work together to find solutions.
  • Treat your spouse the way that you want to be treated. Do not say or do anything that you wouldn't want said or done to you.
