How to have a lasting relationship nowadays?
With everything going on in the world these days, it’s often hard to believe that “forever” even exists when it comes to relationships.
Love is probably one of the most used terms even today and for this reason, people, over the years, have grown tired of believing that it exists and that it would last a lifetime.
Sad to say, the divorce rate in recent years has skyrocketed, which equates to more people feeling discouraged from risking their hearts again.
However, there are still many things to be said about love that perhaps not all people have heard of.
One of the many questions today is how to have a lasting relationship.
The answer to that question doesn’t just focus on finding a man with your preferences, it boils down to how to make it work, regardless of whether or not the guy is the dream guy you once wanted…
The truth is that nobody is perfect.
But there are secrets on how to make the relationship thrive regardless of the differences.
See some tips below:
Giving selfless love
Nothing could be sweeter in a relationship than having both parties willing to help without expecting anything in return.
Nowadays, it is often difficult to determine whether or not there is a feeling of altruism in a relationship, but this is most evident in the way each person treats the other.
Just like Romeo and Juliet, you could say that their love was selfless and sacrificial love, as you can see at the end of their story when they both chose to die for each other.
But I’m not saying you should do this just to prove you’re selfless, because that would be crazy!
In fact, it’s more about trying to see the other side…
It may sound like exhausting stuff, but remember that it wouldn’t be a thriving relationship if both parties were selfish, do you agree?
Indeed, many success stories about love stem from this principle.
Know each other’s love languages
Believe it or not, each person has their own love language.
This means saying that the person feels loved whenever someone does what you believe to be a show of love.
For example, if your proof of love would be your partner saying he loves you, you can feel loved whenever he says that.
The same applies to other love languages, and just like you, he also has his own, so understand what he is and use it to your advantage.
Also, as a result, your partner will also have the motivation to do the same for you.
Be the right partner for them
Often, because of our selfish nature, we get so caught up in just thinking about ourselves and what the other person could do for us rather than the other way around.
One of the reasons most relationships don’t last is that it’s self-centered.
Do you need him to satisfy your desires 24 hours a day?
If you still haven’t been able to get rid of it, maybe you’re not ready for a long-term relationship yet.
In short, for a lasting relationship, you have to try to see beyond what it seems to be, be willing to be a partner, and go in the same direction!
