Finding love was always tough; it is more challenging now however because of our extremely stressful lives and the lack of personal space we have thanks to an ever-shrinking world of social media.
However, if we are to believe people, people fall in love every day. So how hard can it be, be honest?
Here we have tried to collate 10 points that more or less guarantee a relationship that will last forever between two individuals.
Being in a relationship means essentially letting someone in on your personal space which itself is very little and precariously encroached upon by the world. However, love definitely honeys the deal. If both parties have a compatible perspective of the world and a more or less compromising nature, love will definitely triumph over ego and hurt. Stay together and stay healthy.
2. Belief in each other
Individuals in love should remember one thing: no building or edifice can stand without a foundation. The foundation of love and any romantic relationship is trust in each other and making sure to not break or betray that trust. Trust is a precious resource. It takes years to build but only minutes to lose.
3. Feeling free to ask for assistance
If you truly love someone they will make you a better person; an abler human being who is better at their calling. The only thing that you have to do is swallow your pride and ask for their guidance or help whenever you need it. It is always good to have an extra heart caring for you.
4. Having fun together
Intellectual debates in a relationship are always a plus, agreed. Sparring with your individual ideologies and learning new things from each other is always healthy. But so is getting down to party! Partying together or just hanging out and doing something fun together can bring you far closer than ever.
5. Encourage your better half
Try and cheer them up if they are feeling down. Nothing works better than a hug or an unexpected kiss on the cheek. Talk to them about what is bothering them and give them space to recuperate from whatever is troubling them.
6. Division of labor
Divide responsibilities sensibly and equally. This includes economic matter and expenditures around the household.
7. Be yourself around them
Let them get acquainted with the you that you find in the mirror every morning. Speak to them like you would speak to yourself; of course, this would happen only with immense trust.
The dopamine rush on being hugged or being cuddled with by the person you love is indescribable.
9. If it can be repaired, repair it.
Don’t throw it away at the first sign of trouble. This is the trouble with the world today; people fail to appreciate the value of effort that can be put it. Remember, the more sugar you put, the sweeter it is.
10. Do things that are shared interests
Talk about books, movies and other things that represent a common ground every now and then. This makes the intimacy even more beautiful.
