16 Relationship Goals To Build A Lasting Relationship
One of the common questions people ask me is, “What makes a relationship successful?” So I thought about answering that by giving you a list of real relationship goals. 🙂 Whether you’re in a marriage, partnership, or any other kind of relationship, you know it’s not easy. It always requires a lot of hard work. In fact, I like to describe it as a work in progress. But while there’s no tried-and-tested strategy on how to build a lasting relationship, there are ways to reach your long-term relationship goals. Do you want to know what they are? Check out 16 of them:
What’s the best thing about traveling? You get to know more about your partner! Just watch those couples in Amazing Race. Being in a different place with only each other to rely on helps you build trust and forces both of you to communicate. And before you think it will cost you an arm and a leg, then check out these tips.
Trust me when I say if your man’s gonna cheat, he’s going to do it even if you’re the girlfriend of the year. Simply put, there’s no use in stalking him on Facebook or prying on his phone.
Stop spending a lot of money on expensive dates (save them on special occasions). It’s time to create equally beautiful memories for free.
If you’ve been closed up to the rest of the world for a year, this 2017, open yourselves to friends and family. Going out with them will take away the boredom that usually ruins a relationship and give you people who will support you in times of need. Friends can also give you a different perspective on how to improve long-term relationship goals.
While I said you can go cheap on dates, I didn’t mean you should be a cheapskate through and through, especially if you’ve been like that the entire year. Fancy dinners can mean new experiences after all!
If you’ve been busy flirting with your colleagues at work, make it a resolution to stop it right away. No matter how much you think it’s harmless, it’s definitely not.
Although it’s important for couples to do certain activities by themselves (that’s called self-growth), it’s still essential you find a common ground and do them together. Whether it’s doing the household chores, playing games, or eating out, make them a ritual.
Sorry, ladies, but love doesn’t pay the bills. One of the common relationship issues, especially among couples living together, is money. If money gets you into trouble lately, learn to manage it immediately.
Communication is key to meeting relationship goals, that’s true, but here’s the problem: many couples prefer to do the talking. Remember, communicating is a two-way process. One talks, the other listens. If you’ve been arguing often lately, perhaps it’s time to just stop and listen.
Thinking of getting married soon? To make your relationship last, ensure you don’t feel as if you’re not missing out anything while you’re still single.
The more love you bless yourself, the more love you give. Take care of yourself. Nourish your body, mind, and spirit.
Relationships can easily wear you down when you take them too seriously. Don’t forget to have fun too! Play some music, camp, figure out how to build this, travel, prank each other, tell jokes, and don’t sweat the small stuff.
Dreams can lead to visions, and visions to more concrete relationship goals both of you are willing to achieve. Besides, nothing is sweeter than setting goals as a couple and working hard together to reach them.
If you want to know one of the best-kept secrets on how to make a relationship work, the answer is relaxation. There will be numerous battles to be won together, but if you don’t know how to keep yourself calm and collected, these challenges will be more difficult, if not impossible, to win.
But how do you relax? One cool way is to practice yoga together. In fact, learn how to do acroyoga! It’s fun, it increases your flexibility, and, most of all, helps calm the mind. You can also meditate or even take short walks around the park – anything that helps clear your mind even for a few minutes.
For my husband and me, it’s important we also look up to other couples. While our paths may never be the same as theirs, they can serve as our inspiration. And we don’t have to look far for mentors. All we have to do is to learn from the oldies. They are the perfect examples of long-term relationship goals. 🙂 Just check out their funny but sensible advice on marriage.
Can you ever imagine relationship goals without adding dates in them? Not me. Fortunately, the Internet is teeming with cute, fun ideas. If you’re looking for Tumblr date ideas especially this Valentine’s Day, watch this!
What makes relationships successful? I believe there’s no definite answer to that. Rather, it’s a combination of many things including listing your relationship goals and making an effort to do them. And if you think they’re too taxing to do, remember: just love 🙂 Love yourself, love your partner, and love the people around you. And love will embrace you.
What are your favorite real relationship goals? We love to hear them. Share them with the rest of the ladies in the comments section. Interested in mixing health and relationship? Here’s how to maintain a healthy relationship with yoga!
