Communication is the key to a lasting relationship. If you don’t like your other half doing something, voice it out. If you’re unhappy about him spending too much time with his mates, voice it out. Keeping your thoughts to yourself because you wish to avoid an argument would not bring you far in a relationship as you’re eventually going to get tired of going through the same things every day. 

#2 Respect boundaries

Understand that no matter how close you and your partner are, maintaining a certain amount of privacy is very important in keeping your relationship healthy. Don’t ever push your partner to do something he doesn’t want to as not everyone likes to do the same things. This would increase your happiness level in the relationship and build mutual trust. 

#3 Compromise

Everyone has different thoughts, mindsets, feelings and perspectives. So you would always have to remember to put yourself in your partner’s shoes and think about how he would feel. Learn to balance your own needs with your partner’s needs, and seek a mutually beneficial compromise upon conflicts. This ensures that there won’t be any instances of you or your partner having to end up feeling mistreated.

#4 Avoid spending every second together

Yes, we understand that being in love with someone means that you would wish to spend all the time you have together with them . However, contrary to popular beliefs, spending less time together is actually more beneficial for you and your partner. Reason being, having alone time or rather time with your friends would make you cherish your time spent with your partner more. After all, how do you miss someone if you’re seeing him all the time right? From our relationship experiences, it has also been proven that spending too much time together leads to even more quarrels.

#5 Never take your partner for granted
