Relationships, no matter how strong, are prone to take unexpected turns. If you feel like yours has taken one and you want to heal the cracks before they fall apart, try filling them up with some extra effort.
If a gap arises between you and your partner and the air is hard between the two of you, do things that would grow the old charm and love back. Do not stress about it, take care of the little things that you know will take you back to the older, better times. Here are some tips on how to make your relationship stronger.
1. Stay Mentally Present:
It requires constant effort to remember your alliance with your partner 24×7. The reason your relationship is falling apart may be a lack of interest in each other. Try to put that behind and stay present mentally so as to increase the level of interest. Put your phone aside when talking to him, turn it off if need be.
Little deeds like this can make a big difference. More than 50% of the relationships these days suffer due to lack of attention. You only need to remember that your man comes first and then come your other interests. It is quite necessary to just listen in order to make a relationship stronger.
2. Share a Schedule:
If your guy plans to take a nap at five in the evening and you wanted to take one at six, change your schedule and nap with him. Whenever there is a chance to schedule your day with his, do not let it go. Doing things together like sleeping together at the same time, watching TV together and eating together brings you two closer. Sharing a bed, especially, can be a really good way of strengthening your relationship because humans tend to get attracted to people who they sleep and wake up with.
3. Best Friends:
Best friends always come before lovers, so why not make your lover your best friend? It is one of the best ways to strengthen your relationship. Best friends have no terms and conditions and they know each other better than anyone. If you want to strengthen the bond between you and your partner, treat them more like you would treat your best friend. It is all about how ‘connected’ you feel with him, as long as you are satisfied with the connection, your relationship is strong.
4. Do not Take Him for Granted:
As time passes, we get comfortable with our partner fulfilling our needs and often forget to thank him for all that he does. Do not take him for granted; show gratitude not because he needs it but because your relationship needs it. It is the simplest way of showing appreciation yet the best way of telling that he matters.
5 Focus on the Small Gestures:
Relationships are not all about big surprises and expensive gifts; they are more about little gestures that show care and importance. Focus on the small gestures. Cook breakfast for him, brew him some coffee while he is working, sit with him and talk about work; these little deeds will bring you two closer. Marriage researchers also agree that in a relationship, small acts of kindness make a bigger difference than grand gestures.
6. Spice it Up:
Sex contributes a great deal in making a relationship strong. You may face a phase where none of you seem to enjoy it too much. In order to get over that phase, try to spice things up a bit. Get rid of that bedroom rut, create a more intimate environment for nighttime or try occupying a new place, rather than your bedroom. Make it fun for the both of you because creativity always springs new things.
7. Hugs and Kisses:
A relationship literally lives on the existence of these too gestures. Kisses and hugs say more than words do and express a hundred times better too. Kiss him whenever there is a chance: before going out, on a dinner date, before going to bed; just a gentle brush on the cheeks or the lips does a great deal.
Hugs are a greater expression of love. When we fold our arms around someone, we tell them that we absolutely adore them and are ready to keep them for a lifetime. Hug him, too, whenever you can. And if you are a short girl, you, yourself, will love the hugs.
8. Work on Your Appearance:
Guys always love their girls in a specific way, like in a particular dress or with a certain hairstyle. Surprise him every now and then by doing something he loves. Relationships are made stronger by knowing likes and dislikes of the loved one. On a night out, wear his favourite colour and he will love the fact that you remember all the little details.
9. Maintain Decency:
Decency in relationships is achieved by keeping the relationship private and respectful. Men and women often share too many details about their partners with their colleagues and friends. Words always come back to where they were spoken and it can damage your bond with your partner in some way. Maintain decency by not sharing too much. Guys at your workplace can be jealous of your stories too, and that may not end up well.
