partner? When you are in a relationship you accept the good
as well as the bad about your partner. There are a few things
that you can do to make sure that the relationship you have with
your partner will last.
Communication is a big component when it comes to relationships.
If you do not communicate, you will cause confusion, stress,
and misunderstandings within you relationship. Discuss and work
out the plans of the next day the day before. If you need to
balance the budget, balance it together. Try pillow talk. Before
you go to bed at night talk about each others day. If you are
feeling a certain way, then tell your partner how you feel.
Don't expect for your partner to always be able to read your mind.
Look your best. When your partner comes home from work, are you
still looking the same way you did when they left for work. Take
pride in how you look for your partner. We get so comfortable with
our relationships and have been together for so long that we figure
we can look any kind of way. Do something different every now and
then. Shave, cut your hair, color your hair, dress up, wear some
make up. Even if you lay around all day, make sure you are looking
good when your partner walks through that door.
Spending quality time with each other is another thing that is going
to keep you together. You and your partner should come up with a

excuses for why we can't find quality time for our relationships. When
we want to watch television, surf the internet, or play video games, we
seem to have all the time in the world. Sometimes we will stay up all night
doing those things. We need to approach our relationships the same
Ask for help if you need it. To many of us try to be a superman or
superwoman. We want our partner to think that we can do it all.
The truth is that sometimes we can't do it all. If you need your
partner to watch the kids while you cook, then just ask. We would
rather walk around the house mad at our partner and complaining
about the things that we have to do. We had too much pride to ask
our partner for help. When they ask us what's wrong, we either snap
at them or practice the silent treatment. If you need help, just ask
The best compliment you can give your partner is to acknowledge them.
Just because your partner knows that you love them doesn't mean that
they don't have to hear you say it. Try telling your partner when you
appreciate them. Tell them how much something they said or did really
meant to you. If the house is always clean when you get home, then say
so. It doesn't matter how small the compliment. All that matters is
that it is coming from you. Let's not forget the please and thank you's.
It makes people feel good when you acknowledge them, because that means
that you have been paying attention to them. That would make anyone feel
