Keeping A Long Term Relationship Alive

If you suddenly find yourself struggling in your relationship, there are certain things you can do that will help keep a long-term relationship alive and thriving.

But I’m not trying to share some magic pill or instant relationship fixer…

Unfortunately, things like that don’t work. If you want to save your relationship and keep it going strong for the long term, work at it.

There’re no ifs, ands or buts about it.

So if you’re looking for an easy fix, just know that you will never find one.

But here’s what you can find…

You can find excellent solutions that will help keep your long-term relationship growing strong for your entire life. You just have to be willing to work at it and do everything needed to keep your relationship loving and on the right path.

Let’s look at some advice that I’d like to share with you right now…

Make Sure You Communicate with Your Spouse or Significant Other

One of the biggest mistakes couples often make is they lack the proper communication skills to share their dreams, hopes and feelings.

There’s one thing I’ve always disliked about relationships when it happens…

There may come a time in your relationship when your spouse or significant other expects something of you. They’ll even have the nerve to get mad at you, and you won’t even know why.

This is because of a major lack of communication. What I often call a communication breakdown.

Think about this for a second…

How are you supposed to give your partner the things that he or she may want if you do not know what they are? You aren’t a psychic (at least I don’t think you are) and you’re probably not a magician either.

So, unless your significant other tells you what they want, it’s highly likely that you aren’t going to know on your own.

Maybe it’s something you can figure out if they are dropping subtle hints and you are paying close attention. But people are often busy. They have a lot of things on their mind, and clues can easily pass them by.

So do me a favour…

Don’t put your significant other in a position where they feel like they must continuously walk on eggshells and pay close attention to every single word you say.

It’s unfair to them, and it will hurt your relationship whether or not you know it. Tell this person what’s on your mind and let them know how you feel.

It’s such a simple thing, yet so many couples screw this up. I don’t want to see your relationship deteriorate for no reason. So talk to your significant other or your spouse, let them know what’s on your mind and tell them you need their help and guidance.

It’s not a difficult thing to do if you truly love this person. You shouldn’t have any problem being open and honest with somebody that you care about. And if there is a problem, then maybe they don’t care about you the same way that you care about them.

I know it hurts, but this is an excellent way to tell if your significant other values the relationship just like you.

Make Sure You Leave Time to Be Intimate with One Another

If you are like most people, you have a million and one things going on each day, and it’s hard to find time to have 5 minutes to yourself. Forget about finding an extra half an hour each day to be intimate with your partner.

But here’s the thing you have to pay attention to…

Everyone needs to stay physically intimate with their partner if the loving connection is going to last. This is how you will be able to keep the passion in your relationship, and it’s also how you’ll desire one another every day.

If you remove the physical intimacy from your relationship, there will come a time when you’d like to be intimate again. But you might not look for this intimacy in your current partner, and this is a recipe for potentially straying from your relationship.

Since you truly do love your significant other, then staying physically intimate with them shouldn’t be an issue to keep your long-term relationship alive.

It’s something you will eagerly look forward to during the day.

If physical intimacy ever feels like it’s becoming a chore, then maybe you and your partner have grown apart. It’s something you must consider because intimacy should never feel like homework no matter what way you flip it.

So make sure you stay physically intimate with your partner to keep the fires burning, the love and passion alive. Never let intimacy become a chore because it is a surefire relationship destroyer.

Please work on these issues if you are looking to keep a long-term relationship alive. They will help you salvage your relationship if it is on the rocks, and solidify it if things are already going smoothly.
