Relationships are difficult from start to finish (if it comes to that). You laugh, cry, break up, cuss each other out, make love and do it all over again. However, that rollercoaster ride is what makes it beautiful. You learn about one another and become one mold that can never be torn apart. But when things start to get hard, refer to these five tips to see what steps you could take to make the relationship better.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

No one can read minds, and you shouldn’t expect your significant other to know exactly what you mean all the time. Our thoughts are never just black and white and creating a conversation can help break down uncertain or gray areas. Communication is the centerpiece of most successful relationships.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This should just be a standard in any relationship. Without loyalty, what is the point? Being loyal isn’t always easy, sometimes we are challenged by negative sources outside of our partners but the goal is to respect your partner enough to stay committed. If you feel that you can’t be loyal or may be struggling, at least let your loved one know. Lying should never be an option.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trusting is uneasy, awkward, painful and hard to come by. It’s an everlasting journey of uncertainty. You never really know if someone is cheating, playing on you or just not being completely honest about something. At the same time though, having those second-thoughts running through your mind isn’t healthy and can be detrimental to the relationship. The best thing to do when you don’t feel like you can trust your mate is talk to them and let them know how you’re feeling.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Never feel like you’ve gotten too old in your relationship to keep the fire burning. With that being said, flirting shouldn’t stop, ever. Always make one another feel how you both did when you first met. Take time to go on dates, write each other love notes, send good morning texts and explore different things in the bedroom. Have fun and find new ways to bring a smile to your partner’s face.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s nothing more satisfying than being with someone who you know has your back – no matter what. Your loved one should be the person you go to when you’re doubting yourself, can barely pay your rent, lose a job, celebrating a birthday or win the lottery. They should be there for your best, and most importantly for your worst. Your significant other should start to use “we” instead of “I” in situations because a teammate is a person who helps the BOTH of you win.
