Romantic Relationship Tips For A Better Life


If you are looking to strengthen your romantic relationship read on for some suggestions.

Being honest about what you want


Being honest, even with ourselves can be a real challenge, so being honest and vulnerable in a romantic relationship can be doubly hard. The funny thing is that being honest about what you want and need in a relationship can significantly increase your happiness. This is because it allows the other person to focus on doing the things that make the biggest difference to you, and also gives you freedom to enjoy them.

Of course, there are many different levels of being honest about what you want in a relationship from asking your significant other to slow down the pace or help you more around the house to opening up your relationship or looking for a more sugar daddy dynamic. However, only you will know what you truly want so it’s important to consider this carefully and discuss it with your partner.

Some time apart


Sometimes what a relationship needs is for the people in it to spend some time apart. This could be as simple as taking up a new hobby that gets you out of the house once a week, or it could mean something more impactful such as deciding to stay together but live separately.

By spending time apart, couples get the chance to better get to know themselves and pursue the things that are important to them. Both of which can help a relationship thrive in the long run.


Quality time together


While each person in a romantic relationship needs to take some time for themselves, spending time together is also vital. However, the emphasis should be on quality time that is spent together. That means while you may feel like you are with each other all day as you take care of the kids, do chores and run errands, the quality of that time is quite different to when you plan a fun activity or date.

Where possible trying to get out for regular dates where you can be together alone and build positive memories and experiences is the best approach. This is because it will fill up your relationships’ emotional tank, and ensure you have a good solid foundation on which to build, even during the more challenging times.



Last of all, you may wish to consider couples counseling or therapy. This is because a qualified professional can help support you as a couple while being objective enough to not favor either partner.



A good therapist can also provide you with a safe space in which to discuss things that are bothering you. They can also teach you how to better communicate with one another.

Of course, it will not be easy putting the work in to move closer towards your goals as a couple. However, it is preferable to get to the point in your relationship where it’s no longer working.

If you are looking to strengthen your romantic relationship you must be willing to do the work. Romance changes over the years.

Romantic Relationship tips can work but only if you are willing to do the work. This takes honesty and true effort.

  1. Being honest is important. So many people enter with only their best side showing and then as they begin to reveal what they really want and like things shift (as is to be expected). Honesty is always important in a relationship.

  2. Some time apart is a must in every relationship and marriage. However, what I recognise about having some apart is that it can change who you are and your partner must be willing to fall in love with this new version of you in order to make it work.

  3. Oh love these tips! We also used to ask each other weekly questions and it really helped us be intentional in both our relationship and life. We’ve been married for 11 years and your tips are so right!

  4. Fantastic tips! It is always important to communicate & be sure that you know what each other wants, and where you each stand on the important topics like children, finances, etc.

  5. I think any couple should go to counseling. It’s not just about repairing rifts. Counseling can help make sure those rifts never form.

  6. I love this! Me and my pattern also do check in every month to see and hear each others emotions and need that we might have. That way we don’t let problems turn into a bigger deal later.
