If you are looking for more out of your relationship, then you need to reach out. Reaching out toward your partner begins with knowing what you’re looking for and how to get it, and then going out to get them.
These are three important secrets for being happy as a couple – are they the only secrets, heck no, but you have to start somewhere. Keep searching and growing in each other. Stagnation leads to boredom and boredom leads to doom.
1. Know what roles each of you will play.
Ask your partner – what is important to you and what do you see me providing in our relationship from LetmeDate.com. Once your role is defined, work on the role of your partner. Without role definition, you will have no clear idea of where you end and they begin. The conversation is important here, without clearly defined roles the relationship will suffer – who is responsible for what and when, how will you handle conflicts and how will you share responsibility for making a happy life.
2. Have well-defined partnership goals and specific plans for reaching them.
Don’t hold back here, dream big and make elaborate plans. Couples fall short of important goals because they censor their dreams and feel they are unattainable. Remember, anything you can visualize, you can make happen, within reason. Believe in your power to reach the top and plot your course. Make your union exciting by putting fun and energy into building memories that will carry you through the life of your relationship. Until death…
3. Know how to show your appreciation of each other, tolerance isn’t allowed.
You were attracted to each other for a number of reasons. Draw on those reasons and expand the space around them – thrive in the knowledge that your partner works hard to make this a union that has merit. Romance each other in fun ways – send cards, shower each other with small tokens of love, take mini-vacations and make love to one another often. Take a break from one another every two or three months, reconnecting can provide a lot of fun.
