Relationships come with an expiry date, but unlike packed products you have the opportunity to save them, it solely depends on you. Hearts are breaking on a daily basis, all because people are not careful about the relationships they are in. The hundreds of little differences eventually become a mountain of intolerance and so your relationship gives way and the two of you fall apart. The trick is to work on these issues and build a bond that will be so strong that you will have the ability to rise above every problem that comes your way.
The Date Night
You need to fall in love all over again, and for this you will need to bring back the date night. There is something about your partner that needs to be revisited, staring into your better half’s eyes you need to travel back to the time when it had happened for the first time. Try something indoors, like a nice home cooked meal shared between the two of you. Later you could go for a walk, and standing on love lane you can express your feelings all over again.
Do Something each Day
Did you hear how they say that one should do a good deed every day? It is the same with your relationship, so do one good deed a day and you will be doing a lot more than you can imagine. When you are busy with your daily life it is difficult for you to give time to your partner, but just a small gesture would never go unnoticed. A gesture will remind your partner that you still do love and appreciate him or her. Also, you will see that your bonding will improve and become stronger over time.
Talk it Out
Most people forget to talk things out during times of trouble, and this is a very big mistake that they commit. By bottling up those feelings and emotions you are veiling the problems that need to be addressed. Try and have a dialogue every time you and your lover have differences, this will make things easier and will make your relationship crystal clear. But try and not to show you anger if you are angry, take control of your nerves and do not be under the influence of alcohol.
Listening is a Virtue
While it is true that talking helps, you must also learn to listen. Listening is a virtue not many people possess, and you should try and be considerate to what your partner has to say. It is wrong for you to dump your grievances onto your partner and turn a blind eye to what he or she has to say. A swift action can be taken if dialogue is two ways, or else you will always facing difficulties.

Don’t be too Serious
You are not attending a UN convention at home, so then why are you so serious? Be playful, be light hearted and do not be so serious, you are creating a dull and boring mood. When you are going through a rough patch, your sense of humour will come handy, and will play a major role in mending the relationship. Hire a comedy series or a film and sit together to laugh endlessly; there is nothing better than that.
The road to a successful relationship is sure full of thorns, but there is none as such that you can’t clear or move past. Just be a little more sincere in your relationship and like all bad things, this too shall pass.
