Every relationship has its ups and downs. We fall madly in love, adore every bit of our partner and suddenly we find ourselves thinking about ending our relationship. How does this happen? There are common mistakes every couple makes which can easily be solved if both of you are willing to make a little change. Maintaining a happy relationship takes work, but luckily this will be the most enjoyable work you will ever do in your life. Without further ado, here are some tips on how to fix your relationship.
Try Spicing up Your Bedroom
Making love is one of the key components for any successful relationship. We are at our most vulnerable in these situations. This way you and your partner build intimacy and trust. But sometimes our “bed routine” can get a little boring. This results in petty arguments and dissatisfaction even though we often think something else is the problem.
Today, you can find all sorts of sex toys on the market. Sexy costumes, toys, and lubricants you name it. Adding any kind of pleasure toy into your regular “bed routine” will certainly bring new excitement. You will be able to explore the side you haven’t before and even surprise yourself. In every woman, there is a sexy cat just waiting to be released and in every man a strong stud.
One of the most important key components of sexual intercourse is foreplay. But people get so obsessed with getting to it right away that they forget about this. You should openly talk to your partner and see what kind of fantasy they would want to fulfill. It can get really fun and you will be surprised how much you will enjoy these sexy games.
Try to Remember What Made You Fall in Love with That Person
The beginning of every relationship is like a dream. Every little thing they do is magic and nothing can tear you apart. You see that person as the perfect example of a human being we little to no flaws. But at a one-time reality just hits you and you discover that your partner as just as human as you are.
This is the time when you start to argue about little things. Who did the dishes yesterday, what will you eat and all that boring stuff. Gradually the arguments become more serious and you start to think to yourself what am I doing with this person? And that’s when you have to ask yourself why did I start this relationship in the first place?
When you live with someone or see someone on a regular basis you start to notice things you haven’t before. They get on your nerves for doing something differently than you – like the way they slice bread or some other silly thing. You have to remember that these kinds of flaws aren’t necessarily flaws. It’s just a part of who they are. And if your problems aren’t that serious just think about what made you two stay together for so long. Is it your mutual love for good food? Movies? Or 19th century English literature? You shouldn’t let petty arguments get in the way of your happiness.
Listen to Your Partner
We tend to get so occupied with our worries, thoughts and wishes that we accidentally forget that our partner has all of that too. People are so occupied with themselves that they forget that everyone around them is also occupied with themselves. Which leads us to lack of communication.
Being focused on yourself and trying to be the best person you can isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But it can get to a bad place if the only thing we are thinking about is – ourselves. The next time you catch yourself daydreaming about some distant places or the future look at your partner and start communicating your wishes and dreams with them.
Listen to what they have to say. They also have needs and wants and things that bring them pleasure and joy. If you actively listen to them you may get to a conclusion that you actually wanted the same things all along. When you listen to your partner they will feel appreciated and heard which is something every person on this platen struggles with. And having even one person who will understand you can make a huge difference.
If you’re bored of the same old slouching on the couch every Friday night you should definitely do something about it. Sometimes financial worries can get in the way of our fun. We think we need a lot of money for us to have a blast which actually isn’t true.
If you love nature get into your most comfortable sneakers bring a bottle of water and go for a hike. If you’re not much of the sports type a romantic picnic in nature will also do the trick. If you want to stay at home a marathon of your favorite franchises or movies with a lot of greasy popcorn can also get really fun. Especially if you discuss the themes of the movie afterward.
You can feel like kids again by going to a luna park. It will get your heart racing and you will most certainly have fun while spending a day eating cotton candy. You can even get your partner to win a prize for you. Or you for them. Either way, an amusement park can really put a smile on your face.
With just a few changes and fresh ideas, you can bring your relationship to the next level. The key to maintaining a steady and healthy relationship is communication and compromise. So try to listen to your partner, do something fun and doesn’t forget to put on that sexy costume. Because in the end, you choose your partner for a reason and whatever setbacks you are currently having can all be fixed. And that’s what matters the most.
