The idea of a perfect relationship seems to be surreal these days, doesn’t it? With the lightning fast rate of tinder swipes and dates-gone-bad, individuals have begun to take their relationships extremely lightly. However, finding your soulmate is one of the most vital moments in your life and when you do end up meeting that person, you definitely don’t want to end up losing them over trivial matters. Here are a few pointers which would help you strengthen your relationship.
Be Actually Happy Together
Make sure you’re happy together, rather than just being together. Each partner should recognize what makes him or her happy and strive to find that element with the other as well as alone. Be self-reflective every day and focus on how to make it a happy relationship.
Do Something New Once A Month
It doesn’t matter what it is, but make it new. A new restaurant, a new city, a new activity— even a new sex position— just commit to mixing it up. When you try new things together you are creating shared experiences that are new and exciting. That shared excitement is a way to have both closeness and stimulation, which is a great combination for sparking things back up.
To Keep Remembering What You Love About One Another
No matter how annoyed or angry you can be with your partner — and that’s fair, nobody’s perfect— you need to able to focus on the positive. Remind yourself why your partner, and remind yourself often.
To Have Regular Date Nights
The reality is that in long-term relationships, couples drift apart mostly because of the absence of romance. Remember, going over bills and choosing paint colors for walls is not going to keep your relationship fresh. It doesn’t have to be a flowers and a movie. You should give it your own twist, but just make sure it happens.

Even when it’s over something small, the recognition is good to hear. Being appreciative is good for connecting with your partner and staying positive, so it’s doubly important.
Support Each Other’s Separate Goals
Whether it’s your partner’s career change or you taking grad school classes at night, make sure you’re each setting individual goals and encouraging each other to reach them, rather than doing everything as a pair.
These will make you stronger as a couple — and isn’t that the best kind of relationship goal of all?
