4 Easy Steps to a Relationship With Fewer Disappointments

Relationship With Fewer Disappointments

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. – Robert A. Heinlein

Almost everyone fell passionately in love at least once in a lifetime. When you experience that fantastic feeling of the butterflies in your stomach, it`s easy to be romantic, delicate, patient and empathic with your loved one. Then some time goes by, and you see that your feelings are not that strong anymore; your relationship doesn’t feel as warm and close as it used to be. At this time you start looking for advice on how to rekindle those passionate feelings as you know and believe that that relationship is worth fighting for. 

Unfortunately, we don`t think that we’ll have such a crisis in our relationships someday; and we start seeking advice when we are already in the midst of facing these problems! That’s why it’s important to learn to take mindful steps towards building a relationship with fewer disappointments.

4 Easy Steps to a Relationship With Fewer Disappointments

1. Respect Feelings and Thoughts Of Your Partner

Start with mutual respect. When you mindfully choose to respect your partner, your partner will appreciate you as well. Building a trusting and respectful relationship is a team effort: when you`re ready to talk, hear and help each other. When one of you expresses your thoughts and feelings, the other gives support (instead of snap judgment), understanding and provide comfort.

2. Never Stop Flirting

Sometimes we forget about such a simple thing like a flirtation. But it`s one of the most useful things to re-ignite and strengthen your relationships. Kisses, hugs, presents, the words “I love YOU” or “You look SEXY,” of course, are the essential part of your life! Remember that!

3. Have Fun Together

Adventure and fun must go with you if you want to have lasting love and relationships. Just remember! At the beginning of your relationships every date was an adventure, you had lots of fun, and you never knew what was going to happen and how this date was going to end. And the further along you go, the more critical it becomes to continue to do fun things together.

Only through our connectedness to others can we know and enhance the self. And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connectedness to others.

4. Show Appreciation 

Try to show how much you love, care and appreciate your loved one. Appreciating your loved one every day is one of the best ways to save your lifelong love and to protect it from different troubles such as cooling off, breakups, indifference and so on. When you come to the kitchen and see that your partner has made a cup of hot aromatic coffee for you, say thank you, appreciate the gesture. But even if this coffee is without sugar (as someone’s forgotten to put two spoons of sugar in it) smile and note how much you love and appreciate everything that your loved one does for you and how much your relationship means to you.

So, there are only some powerful secrets of love that can help you and save your relationships. I hope that you`ve learned something useful for yourself that might help you now or in the future. Just remember, if you want a long-lasting relationship you and your significant other have to do some serious work as a team. And I’m sure working on creating a healthy relationship with fewer disappointments is the best kind of work imaginable.
