And they lived happily ever after.

Perhaps our favorite line in every fairy tale that we read.

After all, who doesn’t want to have a lasting relationship?

When you’ve found the one, I know that you’ll be more than willing to make things truly work out.

Allow me to share with you these 5 tips to help make your relationship last.

  • Check in with each other regularly

In order for a relationship to work, you guys must be on the same page. Don’t ever overlook the importance of reaching out and asking your partner  about his/her needs and wants and allow yourself to share yours as well. Talk openly and honestly. Adjust accordingly there after based on your conversation. Allow yourself to give and receive the kind of love and affection you deserve.

  • Spend quality time to grow together

Try new things. Or enjoy doing old ones. Explore and experience together. Never be too busy to be in love with that one person who changed your life. How can you support each other more as you get to know each other better while growing together? Keep that in mind.

  • Never let pride get in the way

Don’t let an argument make you forget the beautiful relationship that you have. Have enough time and space to reflect and understand the situation fully. Express your thoughts and apologize if needed. Forgive. Be more than willing to start all over again when you’re ready.

  • Express your love freely

Don’t wait for any special occasion to show your love and affection. Make every single day special. Send sweet messages, surprise each other with random gifts. Hold hands. Give tight hugs. Make your partner feel special and remember all the reasons you fell in love with this person from the very beginning. Keep the fire burning.

  • Never forget yourself in the relationship

I know that once you get in a relationship the assumption is that it has to be always about you both. But to be honest, that shouldn’t be the case. Allow yourself to have enough time and space and acknowledge your own needs outside the relationship. Become your own #bestmeever and allow your partner to do the same. Trust each other and know that by having that healthy space to grow individually as well, you become the best version of yourselves for each other.

I hope these will help you guys build that happy, stable, lasting relationship that you’ve always wanted.

Time to recreate your own fairy tale now.
