We have previously talked about how flirting can help form a successful relationship, but how can this relationship be maintained to grow into something more long-lasting and fulfilling. It is important to remember that every relationship is different and that each person will have different expectations of a partner. Therefore, no matter how good or bad, you can’t judge your current relationship on those from the past, it is not fair to your current boyfriend or girlfriend. This can make relationships complicated, but there are still some general things that can help the formation of a successful relationship…
- Communication is King – If you can’t communicate properly with your partner, then sadly the relationship is most likely doomed to fail. If you can’t let your lover know your hopes for the relationship and your own personal standards, such as your feelings on flirting with others, you are going to find yourself on different pages. In addition, if you can’t talk to your partner about your anger, insecurities and frustration, this can lead to a growing resentment and negative feelings towards your other half. Make the effort to talk to one another, no matter how difficult it may seem, it will be to the long-term benefit of your relationship.
- Playful Partners – There is plenty of decent scientific evidence that shows that the couple who play together have a better quality of relationship. Modern, grown up lives are full of pressures and stress, be it from work, financial etc, and without a release it is so easy to take these stresses out on your partner. By doing something fun together, the strain of everyday life as well as releasing a bunch of feel good chemicals into the brain, which helps reform a bond. adding strength to the relationship.
- A Little Kiss and Cuddle – Ensure that your only physical contact doesn’t happen only in the bedroom. Of course, enjoy your physical interaction in the bedroom, but don’t forget the importance of a little kiss and cuddle that doesn’t go any further. This kind of touching can increase the intimacy you feel with your partner, as well as helping you to cope with the stresses of life thanks to the release of seratonin, a feel good chemical.
- R-E-S-P-E-C-T – You don’t have to agree with your partner on everything, but you do have to respect how they feel on certain issues. For example, if your partner is not comfortable with you flirting with others, if you value the relationship, you will respect that and cut down your cheeky behaviour.
- Money, Money, Money – If you are willing to share your life with someone you have to also be willing to share the money. Financial inequality in a relationship can make the partner who has the least money feel very insecure. Making joint decisions on how to spend money will surely add strength to your relationship, it shows that no matter who earns the most money, you are still equal partners and in it together.
