Finding someone to be in a relationship with is the easy part. Keeping it is the hard part. Relationships aren’t always a fairytale. In the real world. It’s like a rollercoaster ride. It’s got tons of highs and lows. It takes a lot of effort, sacrifice, love and a lot more to keep a relationship thriving.
So, how can you have a successful relationship? Here are 3 tips…
♥ Validate Your Partner
Validating your partner means validating their feelings; thoughts; perspective….It means telling them they are right when you know they are. Make them feel heard and appreciated. This will create a space so you can have a real conversation and deeper connection. If you are searching for ways to strengthen your relationship and increase the intimacy between the two of you, this is a great start.
♥ Schedule A Quality Time With Your Partner
When you and your partner have busy schedules, spending time together can be a struggle but it’s not an excuse to put your relationship on the backburner. You need to be intentional in spending quality time with your partner. There is no such thing as “too busy” for someone who values his/her relationship.
♥ Be Spontaneous
If you and your partner have been together for a long time now, it can take a lot of work to keep the spark alive. This is the part where you have to get creative. Doing something spontaneous can be very exciting! There are so many things that you can try like cooking your partner’s favorite meal or planning a quick whimsical little trip together. Spice things up! Don’t be afraid to put a little effort.
If you’re someone who’s currently in a relationship, just remember that couples who try to work things out always have the best relationships.

My wife and I have been married for a very long time and I think we have slowly let the spark die down a bit. I know that some relationship coaching will be good for us long term. But, in the meantime, I will certainly try your idea of being spontaneous and making some of her favorite meals for a romantic dinner.
