Happy couples are ageless – they could be a teenage couple, or some old retired people. But you realize their intimate strong bond from the minute you see them – they glow from a far distance.
Here’s a really good saying i read recently and would love to share it with you, regarding this subject:
“The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.” – Barbara De Angelis
Here are some tips collected from few surveys regarding this field of study – how to stay in love longer.
- Never go to bed angry at each other – this will make the distance between you two even greater, because the bed is the most intimate and “far away from this world” you share together. Thus you may never break this intimate spot – if you’re angry, talk it through. If your partner doesn’t want to talk at the moment – kiss goodnight and talk in the morning. Falling asleep while angry might cause serious nightmares and overthinking can seriously harm the bonds of your relationship.
- Their love is not broadcast online – bragging about your love, about the presents and attention you get from your partner gives out your insecurities about your relationship.
- Even when you’re angry, you shouldn’t harm your partner – making him a coffee in the morning, covering him with a blanket in the middle of the night, ironing their clothes – all the small things you do to take care of your partner, you don’t stop doing even when you’re angry at each other.
- Accepting their partner’s flaws – nobody is perfect, but in the eyes of a truly deeply in love person – their partner is absolutely perfect, regardless of their flaws.
- Appreciation and presents don’t come only on special occasions – partners who are truly deeply in love don’t wait for a birthday or Valentines day to buy gifts, flowers and make a toast of appreciation to their partners.
- Sharing mutual interests and hobbies – though you’ve probably didn’t share mutual hobbies in the start of you’re relationship, which is very often (rare couples do the same things from the very start of their relationship), you should grow to like or make an interest to what’s going on in your partner’s mind and their world.
