1. TRY AN ACTIVITY TOGETHER
Doing something together provides quality time with one another, and therefor, you will bond more. For instance, you could do cooking or running, however, you have to do something you both like and agree on, or else one of you won't be as satisfied as the other, and that will lead to nowhere.
2. TAKE IT SLOW
I know that this may seem weird, but people these days are always rushing into things, and let me tell you something. If you get married when you've only known each other for, let's say, five months, you barely know the person. I mean, most likely, the person you know is only the person you fell in love with, but maybe all that time, they were just trying to impress you. It may seem difficult, but taking it slow is the best option you can go with, and in the end, you'll be glad you experienced first.
3. NEVER LIE
Lying is the worst thing you can do. If you did something really bad, it's better off that they know because you would be lying from the one person you love for the rest of your life, and if you know that they will get upset, you just have to deal with that, because if you really love them, you should be willing to put up with any type of fight you can get into, because you should know that if you work it out, you will still be the happiest person on the world with them.
4. SHOW AFFECTION
Some may not like this, but isn't it nice to know that that person loves you? Simply just a kiss on the cheek in a movie theatre shows that that person loves you and is not afraid to hide your relationship to the world, and ladies, that's one of the most manliest things, am I right? That's not even a word...
5. BE LOYAL
If you see somebody picking on the one person you care about the most, you should be willing to fight for them, even if you get hurt, because wouldn't you rather get hurt instead of them hurting your other half?
6. IF THEY SAY THAT THEY NEED SPACE, GIVE IT TO THEM
Not giving them space after a fight is a bad option, because you may only make them angrier, and while showing affection might work for some, most might get furious. Give them space for a while, so they can think, and once their ready for you, take on whatever you have to do to be with that person if you truly love them.
7. PLAN A DATE ONCE A WEEK
Whether you guys are married, engaged, or just boyfriend and girlfriend, make sure that you're partner knows how much you love them, and remind them by setting up a thing you guys can do together once a week, or maybe even more. It could be bowling, double date, or even going to the gym. That way, your partner knows that they still love you, and will constantly be reminded of that.
8. MAKE SURE YOU COMMUNICATE WITH ONE ANOTHER
If you have something in your head, shouldn't your partner be the first one to know, even if it's about them? Because if they truly love you, then they'll be there for you, even if they may not seem like it. It's important because you guys will build up a better relationship that way. You know what's going on with them, and you can help them any way possible.
9. BE YOURSELF
Being yourself is the most important thing, even from day one, because if that person doesn't like you for you, and they can't except your flaws, then throw them away, because somebody out there will love your flaws, and you only deserve somebody who will except you for you.
10. REMEMBER HOW GRATEFUL YOU ARE FOR THEM
If you ever get in a fight with them, take out these things:
What I want you to do is list all the things you love about them, and remind yourself that you still love those qualities. Then, write down an apology to them, and to yourself, for thinking something that you never meant, and hang it so that they can see it. You both now know how much you love each other.
I can't promise you guys that any of these will work, but just love each other as much as you can, and remember, relationships only last long enough because both of you fight for it and work for it until the end to be with the one person you love.
Love is a fight. Fight for it, and you'll get to the point where it's not necessary. I love you guys. Kisses to my neonators!
