How To Have A Healthy Relationship 

Do you believe in destiny? Are you one of those who dream of a fairy tale like love story where a damsel in distress gets saved by her knight in shining armor and then they live happily ever after? Do you dream about meeting the love of your life and conquering all of life’s trials hand in hand? Sorry to burst your bubble but life is not a fairy tale, and love is much more complicated than those depicted in movies and books. Yet, a healthy, loving, and long lasting relationship is still feasible if you follow the following tips.

  1. Find someone who has the same values as you do.
    You will me thousands of people in your lifetime and all of them will have an impact on your life, whether big or small. Finding someone who values the same things you do can be a one in a million chance. When you find that someone, hold on to him/her. Never compromise your values and morals for someone who diminishes them. 
  2. Know your love language.
    Your love language expresses how you want to be loved. The same is true with your partner. How he/she shows you love is the way he/she wants to be shown love. If you know your partner’s love language, it will be easier for you to express your affection whether it be with material gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, or physical touch. Your partner doesn’t give you material gifts? Maybe he shows his affection by picking you up at work everyday and spending time together for dinner. He doesn’t say “I love you”? Maybe he cooks your breakfast and prepares your snack to tell you he does love you. 
  3. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
    Or what others would say, choose your battles. If you can let go of the small things, just do it. Do not make everything a big deal because more often than not, they are just little annoyances. Leaving a piece of sock on the bathroom floor won’t kill you, and you can always ask him to put it in the laundry basket. If you can live with a little snoring, then don’t make it an issue. 
  4. Always put your best foot forward.
    Remember in the courting stage, when you can’t leave the house without wearing your favorite scent? Or that second date when you made sure she won’t be cold so you offered her your coat? Or that pre-farting-on-each-other’s-faces period when you just want to put your hands all over her and kiss her from head to toe? You have to keep doing that.  You have to keep doing things that make your partner happy. Guys, you have to pursue her everyday, and girls, you have to remember the things that he liked about you and never change them. 
  5. Appreciate each other.
    When you’re in a long-term relationship, you sometimes tend to take for granted the little things, like kissing goodnight, or holding hands while walking, or offering to make his coffee for breakfast. Sometimes, we tend to be so complacent that we forget to appreciate the things our partner do for us. A little ‘thank you’ can go a long way in relationships. Make it habit to say thank you every chance you get, and make sure you mean it. 

A real-life relationship may be far from the fairy tales we read about, but having a healthy one is enough to believe in an everlasting love.
