You need to work hard in order to keep your relationship afloat, and it is not something you want to bother yourself, but you should.


Love is a wonderful feeling, and most of us have felt it and can only describe it as the most wonderful, powerful, and mind-twisting emotion that can destroy and reshape the human body. Once you are in love, you are solely focused on the person in your head, and we sometimes fail to see what is around us. Once that period is gone, people find themselves having to actually work in order to maintain love, as it is not something as abstract as many of us might think.

You need to work hard in order to keep your relationship afloat, and it is not something you want to bother yourself, but you should. We have prepared a few simple tips that will help you always keep the flame of your love burning, and that will truly show your beloved how you feel about them.

1. Spend Time Together

Living with the person you love is certainly a blessing, but it can also trick us into believing that we’ve done everything there is about our romantic relationship – hey, we are already living with them, our job is done, right? Wrong! Just because you are constantly around someone, it doesn’t mean that you are actively spending time with them. You spend your whole day around your colleagues but it doesn’t mean that you love them? So, make sure to occasionally bring your partner a cup of coffee or tea, and simply talk to them. Turn off the TV, or take them for a walk. Investing your time in them will certainly be appreciated.

2. Feel Free to Express Your Love for Each Other

This means that you should not be afraid to kiss or hug each other when you want to. This is not to say that it is perfectly OK to go and do a full make out session in public, but it means that, when you want to say someone that you love them, you should do it. We get this urge many times a day, but we simply ignore it, we are either busy, or we do not believe it is the right moment for it. But a simple look in the eyes, or a firm hand on shoulder can tell them how much you love them.

3. Actually Listen

The next time your partner is talking to you, truly try and become interested in what they are talking. Ask questions, and the more you listen, the more you will truly become interested in their life, and you will not only understand them better, but you will get a better insight into their daily routine, which will help you associate with them in a more meaningful way. Each response you get will carry a much deeper meaning, and you can usually try and find out more, and in many cases you will find a deeper problem that will help your relationship.

4. Appreciate Your Relationship

Understand that there is no perfect love. Each couple is unique and their love is different from what you see in movies or in commercials. Be proud of what you have right in front of you, and work on keeping it alive, but you also need to appreciate different kinds of love as well. Do not smirk next time you see a gay couple walking down the street, it might seem common sense, but you’d be surprised how many people actually do not understand that love is not purely black and white, but it comes in many shades.

5. Do Not Suffocate Love

While it is good to always try and please your partner and keep your relationship going, you must not suffocate it by caring too much. While this might seem like opposite from what we’ve said up to now, it is actually about finding good balance between the place where you feel relaxed and your relationship goals. This is ultimately the goal to a successful relationship, so feel free to explore and find a unique solution for you. Remember, love makes you whole, so appreciate those people who love you in return, and remember not to think of only romantic love as the only kind of love.
