If you are having problems with your long term relationship, advice can really help. Being in a relationship sometimes means you can’t see the woods for the trees, so some outside input can really help you see things in a new perspective. Check out this article for 5 golden pieces of advice.
Long Term Relationship Advice 1
Learn to communicate again. By far the most common cause of problems with any long term relationship is lack of communication, or lack of appropriate communication. Everyday life tends to blunt our communication skills, and before we know what’s happened we spend more time looking at the TV than we do looking at and speaking to our partners. You can fix this by setting aside some time to talk everyday, even if it’s just sharing whatever happened in your day. A great tip to get this going is to have a “No TV During Dinner” rule.

Arrange some quality time with each other. Again, everyday life can often force us into a life of routine, and sometimes our partners can become part of that routine. You can break this habit by starting something out of the ordinary. Find a hobby for you both to take part in and do it together. If you can’t find anything you both want to do it can be something as basic as just taking walks together-the key is just to spend time together outside of the confines of your usual relationship.
Long Term Relationship Advice 3
Remember why you love your partner. When things become stale and routine, it’s very easy to begin to see your partner as something other than a partner, just someone who lives with you, like a housemate or whatever. This is not a good place for your relationship to be, so if you feel like this sometimes, take a moment to remember what it is about your partner that you love. If you can remember what brought you together, you can make sure you do things which involve or bring out those qualities in each other.

Show your partner that you respect them. In a long term relationship, respect is one of the hardest things to get back once it has gone, so it’s always worthwhile to show your partner that you respect them. You can show your respect by trying not to be critical about them and their ideas, and always making a point of listening when they speak to you. After a while you’ll find that your partner will begin to do the same for you, and you will develop a better understanding of each other as a result.
