6 tips for successful relationships



Love is hard, we all know that. It can be good and it can also be a struggle. Relationships with friends, lovers and family they're all so very different but to have a success out of them, the same rules still apply. You may think this is a long shot and you may already know these tips but they are what work. Living by the old fashioned rules help, there's many older people I know who have been married for what seems hundreds of years, and that's because you never give up, You fight for what's right and you apologise for what's wrong and you have some form of understanding of each other. For a relationship to be successful you have to; 


Be Honest - Okay, we may all tell white lies from time to time when making up excuses for being late at work, or when you've forgotten to get in touch with a friend you said you'd call - This is different to those little petty excuses. Honesty is the main foundation of a relationship, Each time your honest, the more trust you gain. Never lie about anything, no matter how small or big it is, or how stupid or embarrassing it may be, never ever ever lie! Honesty is always the best policy! 

Be Trusting and Trustworthy - Without trust, there is nothing! Yeah, I said it but it's the truth. Without Truth there's no trust and that's why Honesty is one of the rules and why is trust one of the rules? Because if you don't trust your friend, boyfriend/girlfriend ect.. then something is definitely not right, If you don't trust them, things will only become complicated and who wants that on their Facebook profile? Tell the truth and have some trust. If you've been hurt in the past, don't think that your new partner/friend will do the same to you, you have to trust them 100% until they give you reason not to. Never take old problems into a new relationship, It will get very messy! so remember, trust, trust, trust and tell the truth, always! 

Communicate - You haven't got to speak 24 hours a day! what I mean by communicate is, if something is bothering you, let them know. Communication is key. If you keep things inside, 1 - you'll make yourself ill and 2 - They'll be worrying thinking they've done something wrong. Always tell each other the good stuff and the bad, If they can't handle you at your worst, do they deserve you at your best? Nope, So communicate, sometimes when two pair of eyes look at a problem, it makes it a lot easier. Don't be afraid to ask questions, or ask for help. You're a team after all. 

Compromise - So, Footballs on at the same time as your favourite soap, Be fair.. Football can't be watched at a later date they'll receive a text of the score and it will spoil all the fun! Watch your soap on catch up later on and let them watch the football. Or if your two friends are both having parties, compromise.. spend 1 hour at each party.. whatever the scenario, be fair and compromise, If they would do it for you, do it for them. Alls fair in love and war after all. (I never did understand that quote.) 

Interest - Okay, this one is kind of 'out there' but interest is just as important as being honest and trusting. There are things you and your friends or you and your lover will have in common and then there are things they like but you don't. Like, My boyfriend is football crazy - I mean crazy.. he supports one team.. but watches every game, even if his team aren't playing - me on the other hand is still figuring out what the hell the offside rule is all about. However, I love to have a good pamper and watch chick flicks - my boyfriend being male.. not so much, but he will still watch chick flicks with me and sometimes join in with a bit of pampering, so what's to say I can't show a little interest in things he likes, like football? - It kind of ties in with compromise, Showing interest and compromising is very beneficial. It shows you care, and they'll love you for it. Put them first sometimes, and they'll repay the favour. 

The Little Things - They may be little things, but they're kind of a big deal! No one wants to be smothered, but showing every now and then how much you love or care about someone is vital. Even if it's a nice text message, something you make like a CD of their favourite songs or a picture album full of your memories, or even a home cooked meal and little surprises you can plan for them, Letting them know that you love them and that they mean a great deal to you will give them a lift and make them feel special. The little things in life usually are the best. Put your thinking cap on and get planning!
