How to Keep a Lasting Relationship

I’m pretty sure I can say that almost everyone has had a significant other at some point in their life. When I say significant other, I simply mean a boyfriend or girlfriend. Now you may have had this person at any point in your life, and may have even had more than one. This could have happened while you were still in school. Once you entered the dating scene after getting out of college or any other schooling. Or even in your older age, while still in the whole dating scene. Like I said everyone has had a relationship, but not many people have the ability to hold on to one for a long time.

Staying with someone you hope to eventually love for a long time is something that can be very difficult, and has evaded many people. Everyone has had a boyfriend or girlfriend at some point or another, the only problem was keeping that person. Now breakups may happen for many different reasons. One person may mess up, and possibly cheat or something like that and end the relationship. The two people may just not be compatible with each other, and the relationship might just come to an end. The reasons for breakups are endless, but when you know you love someone the reason to stay with them is obvious.

When you know that you love someone, you must first understand that you are going to need to make sacrifices. Now I don’t mean drastic sacrifices, but you need to realize you are now trying to please another person. You need to keep this person happy and keep your love for one another. There are many different ways to go about this, with some being easier than others, and some being completely necessary for a relationship.

The first thing you need to make sure you always do is a compliment the other person, and let them know just how much you care for them. This will not only keep a relationship strong, but it also increases communication. What would a relationship be without communication? Therefore compliments are a complete necessity for any good and lasting relationship. You can also develop a really fun relationship with your partner and make them laugh all the time. You can find love quotes for her funny on this link. You can always use these funny quotes in order to make your partner and make the time that you spend with each other more memorable. 

A second thing you need to always make sure you do is to never forget about them or anything that has to do with them or the two of you. Now what I mean when I say that is, you need to make sure you remember dates, such as birthdays and your anniversary. You need to know and understand their beliefs. You basically need to know everything there is to know about the other person. Believe me, there is no bigger relationship killer, then forgetting about things that are special to the other person.

A third thing that you need to keep in mind is that you need to show the person you care with surprises and sometimes gifts. You could surprise them while they were at work, or possibly plan a special evening for the two of you. You could send flowers on a random date. Anything that surprises the other person, and lets them know that you care, will make any relationship so much stronger. Now obviously you are going to need to get a gift or something like that on birthday and other important dates like an anniversary, but the special times are when a surprise isn’t needed or expected, but you still surprise them.

Having someone you can call your own is one of the most rewarding things. Someone you love and care dearly for can make life so much easier. Unfortunately, a lot of times relationships just don’t work, and it is usually something very stupid that ends it. However the ending of a relationship is up to the two people involved in the relationship, therefore if you follow some of the guidelines above, and include more of your own, you are well on your way to a lasting relationship. The two biggest things in a relationship are one communication and two letting the other person know just how much you care for them and love them.
