It takes more than the intoxication of falling in love to keep the spark in a relationship up. Researchers have also shown that, on average, it only takes one year before the dizzying infatuation turns into more stable emotions. Whether you are looking for the right one, or have found your dream partner, you can take advantage of the tips below.
1. Have open conversations with each other
If the relationship is to last in the long run, it is open communication and understanding for each other that is most important. Couples rarely talk about what works and what can work better (unless you are in the middle of a heated argument).
Take it up with him after a nice day, when you are in a good mood and nothing can be distracting. In the middle of an important football match is a bad time. Start the conversation with what you think is positive, so that he does not misunderstand the purpose. Ask him out well if he is no longer absorbed in the connection.
Is there anything you want to change with the way you discuss? Or is there something new you want to try in the bedroom? Get it out! Such a chat will make you feel more relaxed and welded together.
2. Support each other
Research shows that the more partners support each other's goals, the stronger the relationship. Professor of psychology, Eli Finkel, calls this the Michelangelo effect.
In the same way that an artist shapes a sculpture of clay, you help to model your partner to become a better version of himself. To get him to talk about his dreams, ask him what he would do if he never had to worry about money.
3. Trust in each other
Strengthen your bond by being open to each other, venting feelings of jealousy and insecurity. You do not have to be jealous of his girlfriends, and he does not get angry that you meet your friends. If you know that you do not trust others more about the relationship than you do to each other, trust will undoubtedly increase.
4. Be creative together
Sometimes it takes no more to spice up the relationship than to change focus. Think outside the box and find new things to do. If neither of you are really a fan of eating at a restaurant, there is no reason to do so either.
Invent something in their own style, even if it does not fit into a romantic setting. When you are in your right element, the whole relationship will feel much better.
5. Try Flirting
Showing feelings for each other in public is not just for newlyweds. It is more exciting to flirt, whisper naughty things and cuddle in public outside the safe walls of the home.
