1. Keep sweet talking.
Say I love you everyday and give morning / evening kisses or hugs. A simple 'Good morning Beautiful/Handsome' would be also an amazing start to your partner's day. Send texts like "I miss you babe" when you miss them. Show your affection in whatever way you can!
2. Be honest
3. Communicate frequently
Listen to your partner. Sometimes, all your partner wants is for you to lend an ear and be sympathetic about one of their problems. Other times, your partner wants you to actively give them advice. Know which one your partner is looking for, and try to give them what they want. Being a good listener is all about paying attention to what they're saying and not blowing it off.
4. Compromise and give your partner and yourself some space.
Just because you’re in love doesn’t mean you have to spend every moment together. Taking time to pursue your own interests and friendships keeps your relationship fresh and gives you both the opportunity to grow as individuals—even while you’re growing as a couple.
Try to understand the person you love and accept the differences.
6. Be patient
Love is not in a rush, it has all the time in the world.
7. Always make sure to notice your partner and compliment them.
It will make them feel appreciated. Has your partner got a new dress or has changed their hairstyle? Tell them how much you like it. It will make their day.
8. Have fun together or devote time to each other.
Couples who engage in exciting and enjoyable activities together have greater relationship satisfaction from before to after the shared activity. Couples who play together stay together.
Put it into practice: Choose an activity with your partner that you’ve never done together before that you would both find engaging and fun, such as taking dancing lessons, staying the night at a new town and exploring it, or indoor skydiving. You can also try something with your partner that he or she enjoys that you’ve never done before.
9. Be grateful for your partner & encourage your partner
Expressing gratitude to your partner increases the relationship satisfaction. Feeling appreciated by your partner will increase how much you appreciate him or her in return.
Encourage their efforts and successes in their work/study. This shows how much you care about them and believe in them. It will also make their feelings towards you grow even stronger, and they'll know that they can count on you for support.
Put it into practice: Spend time saying “thank you” and letting your partner know how much you truly value him or her. Also, remember to increase the gratitude you actually feel toward your partner, because this also makes a big difference. Reflect on why you appreciate having your partner in your life or what you would miss most if he or she were not in your life.
10. Make decisions jointly
You don’t call all the shots. Neither does your partner. From what movie to see to where to live, you make decisions together and listen to each other’s concerns and desires.
Bonus Tip: Have good sex
The ingredient of sex is comprised of reciprocity and the desire to show your partner he or she is special and wanted by you. When a person feels wanted, they feel safe and loved.:person_doing_cartwheel_tone5:
