Falling in love is hardly ever the problem, but staying in love is actually the bigger deal. People fall in love all the time, but after weeks, months and probably years of dating, the fire dies, the love regresses and the relationship ends.
So why do people fall in love so easily but can’t stay in it?
There are so many reasons why couples can’t stay in love, no matter how crazily attached to each other they once were. It’s so sad that many relationships and even marriages have ended just because they couldn’t stay in love.
Below are tips which would make you and your partner never fall out of love.
1. NEVER LET GRUDGES/ARGUMENTS LAST
Grudges have a way of leaving lasting impact in our minds if care isn’t taken. Grudges kill a relationship gradually; it wouldn’t kill the love immediately, but slowly and steadily it would. One important tip to keep grudges at bay is to treat issues just as they come; repair arguments quickly enough, never let you and your partner stay long without putting an end to an issue, this way grudges wouldn’t get the better of your relationship.
2. CREATE TIME FOR EACH OTHER
Try not to be too busy for your partner; create time for each other, pay attention to each other’s needs and with this your love for each other would stand the test of time.
However, when you create little or no time for each other, you could easily become distracted and that would hurt your relationship.
3. DO MORE ACTIVITIES TOGETHER
Doing your favourite things together would help keep the bond in that relationship for a longer time; it would help build understanding and make you and your partner fond of each other. Exercise together, see a movie, play games, cook — you would hardly fall out of love with each other when you both partake in activities together.
4. TELL EACH OTHER EVERYTHING
It’s important that couples tell each other everything… or at least almost everything. Once secrets become a part of the relationship, it becomes harder. Secrecy breeds distrust, and once trust is bridged, the relationship would take a hit.
Couples become loyal and trust each other more when there is little or nothing to hide; this would make each partner feel important and loved.
5. NEVER FORGET THE LITTLE THINGS
Never forget to do the little things which show you love each other, such as going out on dates, getting each other gifts, being supportive of each other etc. The little things matter a lot, and its importance in keeping the relationship intact can never be underestimated.
6. MAKE TIME OUT FOR SEX
Inasmuch as we try to deny or downplay the importance of sex in a relationship or marriage, it still doesn’t change the fact that once a couple’s sex life fades then the relationship is bound to lose its life.
Never forget to have more intimate moments with your partner; make out more time for sex.
7. COMPLIMENT AND APPRECIATE EACH OTHER
Sometimes couples get so used to each other that they forget to say a simple ‘you looking good in that shirt’ or a simple ‘thank you for..’. Compliments and appreciation would only make your partner more satisfied and proud, and it’s good for your relationship.
8. BE SEDUCTIVE
This is one reason couples have lesser intimate moments; they get so used to each other that they barely get turned on to have sex. Never for a moment joke with the power of seduction in your relationship. This would lead to more sex and more intimate moments which would help keep the love burning.
9. DO MORE EXCITING ACTIVITIES TOGETHER
Romantic nights are good, but exciting nights are even much better.
A 10 week study carried out by researchers compared couples that engaged in pleasant activities and exciting activities. They found that those who had taken the exciting date nights showed a significantly greater increase in marital satisfaction than those who went for pleasant nights.
Keeping the love in the relationship is way more important than falling in love and these tips would help you and your partner never fall out of love.
