Make sure to be honest with each other
If you are not honest at the start of a relationship then it makes it easy to be dishonest through the relationship and that is not healthy. You need to make sure you are honest with each other about anything straight from the get go so you can build a strong trusting relationship. Make sure you are talking to each other and you are open about past issues, this way you can help to stop them from happening again. Also be honest to each other about how you feel about anything and each other so you can build on it together.
Discuss the relationship
Sometimes couples need to know exactly where they stand in order to fix things and be happy, this can be done by having little relationship meetings where you can discuss where you are at in life and make sure you are both happy with what is happening and discuss anything that may be making you stressed. This gives you both a chance to voice any concerns or feelings about things that happened prior to the meeting so you can discuss and work on them, that way you are being open and communicating and you both know where you stand.
Try to spice things up
It can be easy to just carry on with the normal and not try anything new, this can lead to a stagnant relationship and also lead to fractures which can lead to breakups and arguments. Making sure you remain happy with each other and keeping things fun is really important in a relationship, you can do this in many ways. You could try dates nights, different things in the bedroom like see through lingerie, sending feet pics or even just buying each other a gift randomly. Doing little things to just change the normal and make things a bit more special can really help to keep a relationship fresh and help to make it long lasting.
Make sure to respect each other
Respect in a relationship is very important so make sure you are respecting the boundaries and also privacy of your partner. With modern technology it is a lot easier to keep a track of a person or login to their things and see what they are doing but you have to respect the privacy of the person you are with, if you are always questioning them and asking what they are doing then this can lead to distrust and the end of a relationship. Also try to give them the space that they want, should they be out and about do not constantly message and distract them and try not to ask them what they are doing to often as this can seem controlling and like you are checking up on them, this will also lead to trust issues in the relationship and more arguments which you want to try and avoid.
Do not be scared to argue
Going into a relationship and thinking it will be perfect and without confrontation just isn’t going to happen so make sure you are prepared for that. Arguments will occur but it is how these are dealt with that are going to determine the strength of a relationship, make sure you are respectful of each other and no physical harm is caused, make sure you talk about it instead of shouting and if things do get heated then step away have a breath then talk about it later. You should always try to not go to bed on an argument otherwise it spills over and you overthink things that will lead to more arguments in the coming days.
If you’re in a relationship and you are unsure how you can make sure it can be long lasting and what you can do to make sure it is healthy then these tips should help to get you started and give you some idea of what you can do to make sure you are both happy.
