Being in a relationship is more than just dates,it is more than just holding hands and kissing. It is something deeper,more sacred and personal. For a relationship to succeed one must consider some factors:
1. Accepting each other
This is one of the most crucial stages of a serious relationship. You have to accept and learn to embrace the flaws of your partner. However, you also need to avoid overlooking your partners flaws.
You have to learn how to accept their weirdness, and also being able to see past their flaws and disappointments that are there and yet to come.
This entails giving the best of yourself truly to someone that deserves it.
2. Live as a team
Both of you should live as a team and encourage each other to be better. This includes being there for each other when situations become tough and being there for your partner when he/she feels low.
Many people get depression nowadays due to simple everyday challenges. Let us take care of our partners emotionally. Be strong together.
3. Make your partner feel wanted
There is nothing painful like living with a person who makes you feel like you are not worth anything in his or her life. You are in the relationship together and therefore it is only right that you make each other feel wanted.
Very importantly, make your partner happy. Making someone feel like your love is one sided is not the best feeling one can have. Therefore, appreciate your partner.
4. Respect your partner
Respect is one of the key things that you need if you want to have a long lasting relationship. This is an important ingredient in your relationship because this is how you will be able to live with your partner in future. In a nutshell, respect is the cornerstone of your relationship.
Make time for your partner. Get to know your partner better before deciding to take the relationship to the next level.
As indicated earlier, know their flaws; know what they hate and love; know every single thing you need to know. For you to master everything you need to know, you have to make time for your partner.
6. Be faithful
Being faithful entails so much more than just the word. This means that you are not supposed to flirt with others, you aren’t supposed to entertain flirting from other people.
Flirting is emotional cheating and that is where it all begins. Cheating is like a parasite in the relationship, because it ruins the relationship. Cheating is not healthy at all. Temptations to cheat will always be there, it is up to you to conquer them.
Remember, don’t rush, take your time before getting into a relationship.
