Simple Things to do to Make your Relationship Stronger

Sometimes the most critical relationships in our lives are those with our friends, family, and colleagues but the connections we make in a romantic relationship are just as valuable. Whether you’re trying to pick up a date, impress someone of the opposite sex, win an argument, or make your friends jealous, these are all actions you can take to make your relationship stronger. Being in a romantic relationship is one of the most rewarding things you can do. It’s also one of the most fraught as partners change or drift apart.

There are some simple things to do to make your relationship stronger and prevent problems from arising. 

Consider your partner’s feelings 

A big reason relationships fail is that people aren’t thinking about what their partner wants or needs. If you’re in a relationship and the other person wants to go out, just the two of you, don’t say, “but I want to do this with my friends.” Listen to what they want, and ask them how you can make it happen. 

Turn off your phone while spending time together 

This isn’t a hard and fast rule; sometimes, it’s necessary to have your phone handy in an emergency or for convenience purposes. But if you’re not using your phone for anything but texting and checking Facebook, stop using it for everything else so that no one can distract you from being there for each other. 

Show Affection 

Your relationship needs affection for it to be strong. If you aren’t affectionate with each other, there is something wrong with your relationship. This can include physical intimacy, but that isn’t the only way to show affection! Showing affection means holding hands, making flower delivery to your partner at work or home just because! 

Open communication 

To stay together, you need to keep the communication lines open. This can include letting your boyfriend or girlfriend in on what’s going on at work. It can also mean talking about future goals and discussing things like finances. It’s never easy to have a conversation about money, but it could lead to problems down the road if you don’t talk about it. Thanks to and Intuit’s GoPayment app, talking about money is easier than ever, which helps you track spending and budget. Some sites also allow users to see their credit scores and other details without entering passwords. 

Be flexible 

People expect you to be reliable, so if they need something from you, give it on time. But they also appreciate flexibility — if they need something from you on short notice, don’t make them wait until your schedule clears up. 

Be honest  

Honesty is essential not only with people but also within oneself. If someone asks you something, either tell them the truth or don’t answer at all. Don’t say “I don’t know” when you don’t know anything; be honest and direct even if it’s not easy. Every little thing counts. Also, if you know you’re not going to meet a deadline because of extenuating circumstances, be upfront and honest about it so the person doesn’t get upset later when the same thing happens again.
