Many people have asked “Are relationships all about love?” Well, they should be but of course, love alone cannot make a relationship successful. There are other ingredients needed to mix well together with love like respect, the ability to communicate well, acceptance, and understanding.
Biologically, Science says that we are attracted to a person whose genes will mesh well with ours. In other words, it will create a stronger offspring. We are most attracted to persons with a better immune system than ours so that our offspring will be a hundred times better.
What is love for you? According to the dictionary, love is an intense feeling of affection for another person. It is a romantic feeling with a mix of sexual attraction for another person. I’m saying just a “mix of sexual attraction” because too much sexual attraction could mean that it isn’t love but instead it’s lust.
If you want to make your relationship work, you have to remember that just loving each other isn’t enough. Love is important, yes. Love should never be absent in a relationship. If you feel like your partner doesn’t love you anymore, then you have to sit down and talk it our with him or her.
Good communication between two people who are in love or in a relationship is very important. Most of us feel very satisfied in a relationship if we feel that we are connected to our partner. You can strengthen this by developing a deeper more meaningful friendship with your partner. How? By spending time together doing something that you both enjoy. You can also try to get interest in his or her hobbies. It would be great if you can get to know more about your partner’s likes, dislikes, and current stressors from time to time. Remember, that people change so keep each other updated. Treat each other like a friend but not to the point that it will turn into a platonic relationship.
People also love to feel appreciated by the person who means the most to them. One of the secrets in keeping a relationship going would be to continue to actively appreciate your partner. I’m not saying that you have to keep up with those grand efforts you did when you first started dating (because to be honest, that’s a little tiring to keep up), but you can do a grand gesture from time to time. To keep each other happy, both of you must be willing to give regular efforts to show your partner that you appreciate all that he or she does in and for the relationship. It will do wonders! You can start by giving out daily compliments like “You look great today!”, “Thank you for being so thoughtful.”, “Thank you for helping me out.” It’s not a big thing but it can have a big impact.
If you are a negative thinker or if you always think that your partner has negative intentions behind every little thing that they do, you have to stop. This is damaging to your relationship. Give your partner the benefit of the doubt. Don’t immediately jump to the worst possible conclusion, but instead, try to keep an open mind and a neutral explanation for his or her actions. You can also try to talk to your partner in a nice and loving way. Don’t judge your partner so quickly because I’m sure that if the tables were turned, you wouldn’t like it either. Communicate.
Being in love is not a walk in the park at all. I’m sure those of you who have been in love or have been in a serious relationship will agree with me.
