They say the longer you are in a relationship with someone, the more you start to look like each other. More than physically, it probably has something to do with picking up each other’s mannerism and quirks, creating a vibe that’s uniquely the two of you.
More than grand gestures and Instagram-ready moments, what does it really take to make a relationship work?
- Love starts by getting over bad impression.
Accepting your partner for who they are and who they are not will take your relationship to the next level. Love is about embracing the flaws and not letting it ruin your relationship. No one will ever be perfect so use those imperfections to make room for growth.
- Love means being true to yourself and your family.
Love is not always about romance. It is also about trust and acceptance. You should always stay true to yourself in order for you to stay true to everyone. Good or bad, no secrets should be left untold. You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not just to impress the person you love. Be your own self. You are special.
- Love equals less games, more communication and honesty.
Being in a relationship is a 100% commitment. If you think you’re not ready for it then don’t be in a rush. Instead of fighting over something talk about it. A relationship powered by two matured individuals will make things easier. Be open to your partner’s feelings. Learn to listen. Sit down, be calm and be true to what you feel. Don’t pretend that something is fine even if it’s not. Relationship is a work in progress. You should help each other in order to make it stable. It’s not easy but it is definitely rewarding.
- Love means sharing each other’s interests and values.
A commitment is not a one-sided love affair. It also revolves on engaging your partner to the things that you love. This doesn’t have to be grand. A simple gesture of sharing your favorite movie is a start. Remember, you were born apart, so you definitely have a lot to share with each other.
