Most relationships these days operate on such shallow and selfish precedence, with people expecting it to be a breeze and jump off when it doesn’t suit them.
IT IS A TEAM EFFORT.
Be the yin to their yang and vice versa. A relationship with a weak foundation cannot stand the test and trials life will surely throw at you. Making an effort to strengthen bonds and create a sturdier foundation, a stronger relationship is the first step in the right direction. Keeping the flame alive and burning bright requires compromise, understanding and communication. Opening up to another person can be tasking, know that this is the same with other people too. Emotional walls have to be broken down and remodeled for the “home” you plan to build in the future or the home that has already been built, even the home that has been built and the chicks have flown the nest and it’s back to being just you two. Here are 5 ways to unlock this strength phase, to make your relationship stronger. A phase of fire and wonderful burns, a phase of passion, of trust and new beginnings.
By going on adventures, either a safari or travelling to a new place for the first time or even just trying out a new establishment. Memories made, experiences shared help to bring you closer to your other half.
FANTASIES ARE POWERFUL THINGS.
Asking your partner what he/she likes can go a long way in contributing to the relationship foundation. Not everyone will be comfortable just throwing it out there with their specific other, either because they feel it is to out of the box, irregular, strange or that their partner will start looking at them differently, in a slightly negative light.
Exploring opens new doors to couples and let’s them experience certain “highs” (“and lows”) together.
Spoil the heck out of your significant other, gifts, dinners, back rubs, etc. little things, and big things.
ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS.
This is one of the surest ways to “show” love, care and affection. Remember, it isn’t a one way street. Spoil each other rotten.
The quickest way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. It sounds gauche but, it’s the truth. Whether it is prepared at home, bought or eaten outside.
As long as it’s tasty, filling and satisfying. Another good thing about this is, knowing what and how to “bribe” your partner.
NO RELATIONSHIP IS TRULY QUARREL-FREE.
It is that…
EXTRA SPICE, MESSING WITH YOUR PARTNER’S HEART RATE, MIND AND WHETTING APPETITE.
The build-up, the adrenaline, then when you both finally come together, the fireworks will be epic.
Your partner has something to say, be it about their day or how they saw a man strip in the middle of the road.
A listening ear goes a long way. Having someone to talk to at the end of the day is great stress relief, to let it out, instead of bottling up emotions.
Being the source of relief, of satisfaction, lightening them of this baggage. Being a rock for them in their time of need. These are just a few ways to help make your relationship stronger. A selfish approach just affects the balance between both individuals and the relationship becomes parasitic instead of being mutual where both partners benefit.
