Doctor Cupid: These are all the ingredients you need for a perfect relationship

Connecting with someone romantically, physically and emotionally can be a really amazing feeling.

But, there’s a lot of work that goes into building that relationship, and a lot of sacrifices to make for that connection.

There’s no way for a relationship to be great all the time, but a perfect relationship is one where both partners feel great about the relationship most of the time.

You have to be willing to put in the work every day in order to commit to making the relationship into something that is mutually benefitting for yourself and your partner.

It would probably surprise you to know that a lot of people are unhappy with their relationships not because they don’t love their partner, but because their relationship seems to only be filled with fights and resentment.

If you find that you’re one of those people, check out our tips for making your relationship fun, spicy, and something close to perfect!

1. Love yourself

Look within your own self first before looking out to other people. If you don’t love yourself, you cannot properly love your partner.

Also, you will not be able to properly receive love if you cannot learn to love your own self first.

That’s why it is important while thinking of building the perfect relationship with your partner, to also consider building a perfect relationship with yourself – to become your own cheerleader, pick yourself up when you’re down, and to make yourself happy.

After this, you can learn from the love you’ve given yourself and then use it to love your partner.

2. Communicate

There’s no great relationship without great communication between the two parties.

You have to be able to tell your partner most things (if not everything), to speak up when you’re not getting something you want.

Something else that is important is not to learn to shy away from fights. However, you must not see it as a fight, or things will devolve more than they should.

Talk to each other with empathy and kindness and approach problems together. Communicate with each other, and you’ll find that you’re getting closer than ever.

3. Be honest with yourself and your partner

Be honest with your partner about the things you do, feel, and want. It’s as simple as giving a detailed reply to the question, “How are you?”

Honesty builds trust in relationships, so if you’re serious about building the perfect relationship, you need to start by being honest with your partner. Starting now.

4. Agree to disagree

Every relationship has couples who have arguments – it’s inevitable. The key to being progressive with these disagreements though is to approach them together.

Your girlfriend/boyfriend doesn’t like something that you do? Find a way to fix it together. Don’t assume that you’ve given it your best and then flip them table when they keep talking about it.

Also, you need to learn to agree to disagree on things. You won’t always have the same opinion about things and that should be okay. Both of you are not the same person, so there’s no way you’ll have similar thoughts.

Respect that.

5. Learn to forgive

Everybody makes mistakes. Learn to forgive your partner and to also seek forgiveness when you’re wrong.

If you don’t, you’ll start keeping grudges with your partner and build resentment which will destroy your relationship. You don’t want that.

Get things off your chest, forgive each other, and move on in happiness.

And that’s it with our tips for a perfect relationship. Got any more? Share them with us in the comments section below.
