Most people have trouble in relationships at one point or another. However, you can make it work out if you decide to work together to fix it, starting with trying to understand what’s gone wrong in your relationship. Basic Tips For Fixing Your Relationship!
How to Fix a Relationship
Talk with your partner
How did you deal with the situation the last time you disagreed with your partner, or had a little fight?
Most couples prefer to just end an argument with slammed doors and silent evenings rather than face the situation, sort it out and clear the air.
You could give each other some space for a couple of days and wait for the issue to get sorted out by itself. But by avoiding a confrontation, you would end a fight but you really can’t understand each other or help each other. Problems that are brushed under the carpet have a way of raising a stink every now and then.
The next time you’re feeling frustrated and lonely, talk about it with your partner and try to get over the issue. Why do you need to talk to a third person and get help from the outside when you can actually talk frankly and listen to each other instead?
Spend time connecting
When you’re in a new relationship, you spend time talking to each other and learning what the other person likes. You discuss your fears and your interests, what you love and what you hate. If you’ve been in a relationship awhile, you may stop doing this together.
If that’s the case, you need to consciously work at rebuilding that connection by making time each day to talk. Make time for just the two of you, and when you do spend time together, try to dig deeper than just the day-to-day dramas that fill your life.
No matter how angry, hurt, or vengeful a couple acts toward each other in that first session, I can see that their distress with the situation at hand in no way suggests that their partners are basically flawed or unacceptable people.
Challenges of acts of behaviors are very different from character assassinations. The issue at hand may have sorely undermined the relationship in their current crisis or long-term distance, but they would never state that the other person was unworthy of their love or basic respect.
After a while you and your partner are settled a bit and insecurities about your partner’s feelings for you are taken away. Time to relax. No more flowers, massages, dining out or going to a spa. She loves you anyway, right? Not completely.
Back in the days when you two were dating it was all about surprises and making a good impression. That is the person you made your partner believe you are, the one she fancies. Taking it a little more easy is understandable, but continue to surprise your partner, make her feel wanted, special and appreciated.
Sometimes candles can make things look special already. Surprising your partner isn’t about big things, but about the small things. Leave him/her a small note on a surprising place (lunch box, pocket etc.).
Not being honest about your financial situation can cause relationship problems. Especially, if you have debts or earn less than your life style requires. Be transparent and honest about your income, your debts, and about the future perspective.
It’s also wise to inform your partner about desired future purchases, so that you do not have to hide money from your partner to make that purchase.
