We all want that Special Someone to share our life and dreams with. We all dream of being in a Loving Committed Relationship. We all want to love and be loved.
A good relationship each person will give – without expecting anything in return. The expectations of the other person aren’t set too high. You love yourself and you love your partner.
You need to build your relationship on a solid foundation. I believe that foundation is Friendship. Your partner should be your best friend. A person you enjoy being around – talking, laughing, sharing and dreaming together.
However some relationships can become unhealthy; For instance – By allowing your love to become an addiction. If you become too dependent on the other person or if it is based on one person controlling the other – either physically or mentally.
A relationship is like a street built for two people to walk side by side: if one of you walks ahead or lags behind, what you have is a master and slave relationship, not something built on love.
A Good Loving Healthy relationship is possible. It does take some work, but the reward is well worth it. I recommend reading 1000 Questions For Couples by Relationship Expert Michael Webb.
Asking these questions will help you really get to know the thoughts, feelings and desires of your mate. You’ll know what makes them happy as well as what irritates them.
5 Habits for a Committed Relationship
1. Be Sensitive
Be aware of the other person feelings. Tune into their emotions. Know that you can’t fix everything for them. Don’t’ say things that will hurt them. Listen to them and empathize. When your partner is happy be happy with them. When they are sad, comfort them.
2. Be Understanding
Understand that your partner has a right to their own opinion. Don’t force your beliefs on them. Keep an open mind – and you might just learn a thing or two. Learn to “Agree to disagree”.
Listen intently. Know their body language as well. Often times body language can tell you if a person is upset, nervous or uncomfortable. Repeat what your partner says to be sure that you understand what they are saying – so you’ll both be on the same page.
4. Lighten Up
Inject fun and humor into your relationship. Be spontaneous. Play games. Try new things together. Laugh together. Have Fun!!!
Respect your partner as an equal. Their opinions and belies should be just as important to you as your own are. You should walk side by side. Make decisions together. Never ever put each other down. You should put your partner first – above all others.
