1. Everyone sleep under their own blanket
In order to be as close as possible to your partner, you don’t need to share the same blanket with them. Everyone sleeps differently, some toss and turn more during the night, some feel warmer or colder. In the end, the most important thing is that you get a good night’s sleep and be able to function fully the next day.
It should not be forgotten that sleep is an important part of physical and mental health. In the absence of it, you risk greater nervousness, which can adversely affect your partner and endanger the functioning of the relationship.
2. Share your plans and responsibilities together
If each of you has different work hours and the resulting responsibilities, there may be conflicts when planning things together. To avoid misunderstandings and unnecessary waste of energy, it is recommended to try the synchronization method using the calendar. In this way, you will not only have an overview of mutual obligations and plans, but also help you remember important dates. And that’s really not a bad thing either.
3. Be each other’s best friends
Most people can have a relaxed conversation in a group of friends, show their true self and express everything directly without unnecessary arguments. Although it is not always easy to tell the other person everything about your thoughts and feelings, it should work equally well between partners. Well, be relaxed, informal and see your significant other as your best friend.
4. Take time for yourself
If you sometimes feel that you need to spend time alone, there is nothing wrong with that. While in a relationship you are devoted to your partner and life as a couple, you also remain a person with your own needs and interests.
The time you spend with yourself will help you recharge your batteries, relax, dedicate yourself to yourself, but at the same time promote mutual desire in your relationship. Even in this case, however, there should be a certain balance between the time you spend alone and the time spent as a couple. If your partner seems to prefer alone time to time together, there may be a bigger problem that needs to be addressed.
5. Never stop dating
Even though you have been together for several years and you feel that you have managed to build a quality relationship, never stop dating. Go somewhere together, talk a lot, keep experiencing new and interesting things. And at the end, promise yourself another exciting date to look forward to. Even these little things can keep the spark in a stable relationship, which can quickly turn into stereotype and comfort.
