My own definition of a “Real Couple Relationship” is when we can fight like enemies, laugh like best friends and love like soul mates.
I’ve got several friends that tried dating to see if there was more there. Many of them turned into longer term relationships, but several others broke up after a week or two.
Do you know the reason why?
Because sometimes, the “friendship” is where the relationship will stay, and sometimes the attempt at seeing if there is MORE will break things. Some of them were just having fun, thus, they want to explore first.
But for me, exploring is good if you are single but when you already have a boyfriend/ girlfriend, you have to stay true, loyal and in love. Ofcourse, you can explore but don’t forget to explore together as a COUPLE. For some couples, being perfect means being flawless. But for a wise and mature relationship, being perfect means accepting each other and making the most of what life has to offer.
For anyone who has been in a long-term relationship, there is no single answer on how to keep the spark alive. I think everyone knows this that when you first start dating someone, there is a mixed bag of emotions including butterflies, excitement, and etc.
As time goes on, your relationship transitions to long-term status may wear off. Just because you’ve been with someone for what feels like forever doesn’t mean the relationship has to become boring.
Challenge yourself and your relationship. Here are my few tips:
Communicate your feelings
Don’t go to bed angry
Make a bucket list together
Respect each other
Make time for friends and family
Do something that never done before together: extreme adventures
Listen to each other
Never forget why you fell in love in the first place
