A relationship without happiness can never last long enough. Happiness is the very secret to having a lasting relationship. Of course, you know that a happy relationship is a product of happy partners. The absence of happiness creates a disconnect, which eventually leads to the end of any relationship.
Dating requires 5 component parts; if you have them in place, happiness is guaranteed.
TALK TO THEM
There can never be a limit to how much you can talk to your partner. Talking helps build trust and understanding. Whether it’s via calls, texts, notes, just make sure you’re saying something. When communication becomes inadequate between a couple, it creates a feeling of distance and could lead to the loss of affection between them. There can’t ever be an excess of it, as long as the love is real.
GO OUT TOGETHER
I’ll tell you why this is important. Going out to events and dates with your partner makes them feel appreciated and loved. Let’s face it; you don’t really want to go in public with someone you aren’t proud of because you don’t want people to think so little of you, but the reverse is the case if you’re happy about what you have. You can imagine how happy it would make your partner to know you’re never ashamed of being seen with them.
Dates and public outings would also tighten what you have because it’s an opportunity to talk, play and laugh together.
RESPECT IS IMPORTANT
Sometimes, people take love for granted. We think that because they love us, they’d always be there no matter what, and we fail to treat them with enough respect. If you do not respect your partner, it’s only a matter of time until things get crazy. Respect is loving them faithfully, listening to their opinions, and knowing that you can scold them, but definitely not in public.
ALWAYS SAY THOSE WORDS
There can’t ever be a limit to how many times you can tell your partner you love them. Say it every moment you’re together, and more importantly, show it too. Buy them gifts, support them any way you can, and be available always. That’s how you show you truly care about someone.
SHOW THEM THEY’RE A PART OF YOUR FUTURE
The final piece of the 5 component parts of a happy relationship is giving your partner that sense of belonging. Everyone who goes into a real relationship is looking for something that would last forever; to be able to give them that or at least, make them feel they can have that with you is priceless. And the one way I know you can do that is by integrating them into your circles. Get them to meet your family and friends, and you have yourself a partner who can go the mile for you.
