Each relationship is its own. We can’t really compare them or generalize. However, even on this topic, there are some Do’s and Don’ts and most importantly there is a general guideline on how to make things work better.
First of all, don’t forget that the person in front of you has to be your best friend and not only your boyfriend. Studies show that you can become more attached and connected to your partner if you develop a deeper friendship. So spent quality time with him or her and get to know your partner’s hobbies, likes and dislikes. Doing so will lead you to appreciate each other more.
If the relationship is going on for a long time it doesn’t mean that you should stop giving compliments and appreciate the other like you used to do at the beginning. Listen to the partner; give the other person the importance he or she deserves. This way you won’t grow up apart and lose each other.
Break negative cycles, if you always have the same kind of fights take a step back and try to see them from the other’s perspective. Focus on what’s fixable and fix it. This is the way you’ll improve your relationship. But most importantly, accept the unsolvable. Some things will be just not in the way you want them to be. Accept it.
Stop with this negative thinking. Be positive. Share powers: your opinions count in the same way, develop a more accepting attitude. Find common goals to pursue together, it would be awesome looking forward to them together.
