It’s normal to have doubts in a relationship. But what if you’re not sure where your relationship is heading?
When you and your partner are in a long-term relationship, it’s natural to sometimes feel unsure. The best way to get rid of doubts is by talking with your partner. This will help you solve the doubt or problem, and it’ll strengthen your relationship.
You may be wondering whether your partner still loves you or if that feeling starting to fade away?
Here are some signs your partner might still love you
1. It’s not uncommon for a person to still be very much in love with their partner, even if they’ve been together for decades. It shows that your significant other is interested in the high and low points of your day when he/she regularly asks about it during times you’re spending time together. Does your partner ask about or show interest in what happened at work today?
Even on ordinary days, they’re the sweetest and most thoughtful partner you could ever meet; making it so easy to feel lucky that you found someone who would go an extra mile just to make your day.
2. They just can’t stop bringing and buying you that cute ( sometimes useless ) stuff. No matter how expensive or cheap, impractical they are, as long as they know that you will be the happiest person in the world even for a day with it – despite what other people might think of them -they’ll buy it!
3. They make sure to write down or set up reminders just in case they forget the most important dates and details of your life: birthdays, anniversary, the first day you met. They’ll even remember that enchanting restaurant where we celebrated our birthday.
4. They ask too many “are you okay?” and “is this ok” all the time.
And they will never force you into doing something uncomfortable- if someone does otherwise, then you’ll know that you are with the wrong person.
5. Forget peer pressure, they’ll never give in to risky proposals.
Even if it involves letting their friends down, they will never give in to temptations.
They will not do something that could destroy your connection. Many couples don’t make it just because of that one stupid and often reckless choice of choosing the most selfish and often passing pleasures.
6.They make you feel beautiful inside and out. The people who really love you will see and understand you for who you are. With them, you feel as if you’re the most beautiful person in the world and that your existence matters. They will love everything about you and they will see your flaws as a precious uniqueness, one of the sweetest reasons why they wanted you.
In the average relationship, two breakups are common. This is not surprising because both parties have different personalities and needs that change over time.
As people get to know each other better, they don’t have anything more to explore and learn. They start looking for a new friend or partner with whom they can do all the things that their current relationship lacks.
I think people get bored with each other because they’re in the same environment all day and do the same things.
Here are some tips on how to avoid breaking up with your significant other.
Communication is important. If you find that when you try to tell your feelings to your partner it always leads to an argument, try writing your feelings down. Read through what you’ve written. If you find things that are just trivial problems with no real validity, eliminate them. Try to find the causes behind your words.
Resist making complaints. Approach your partner naturally, without being defensive. Tell him or her the problem.
Don’t be attacking or they will become protective and yes, you will end up in an argument. If you find it’s easier to write it in a letter, then do so. Leave while they read it so you aren’t hanging over them, waiting for their response.
Let them process what you have said. Again, do not be attacking. Tell them you want to make your relationship healthy. Have ideas for both of you, not just them. Be sure you know the problem and aren’t just mentioning a symptom.
Avoid insulting your partner during discussions. Clashing dirty can quickly become a habit and ultimately someone will say something that the other person cannot overlook, or worse, forgive.
Take time to tell your partner why you love him or her.
Not once, but many times. This can be something as little as a compliment on how they look. Your partner needs to know you appreciate them. Don’t just think they know. Everyone likes to be told they are loved.
Be supportive. Look for ways to give your spouse the things they need the most. Even if they don’t tell you what they need, you can figure it out if you pay notice. Some people have a difficult time telling you what they need but there are signs. If you’re not certain, ask.
Never try to resolve a problem when you are annoyed.
Take time to calm down. I know this can seem difficult at times but think about it. Is anything ever actually solved when you are shouting at each other?
Set aside some time for only the two of you. If not once a week, then at least once a month. This should be quality, alone time, however you two want to spend it. You might try planning a specific day each week and take turns planning what you will do.
Don’t Lie! Everyone lies occasionally. It’s in our nature. This isn’t an explanation to lie to your companion. Every time you are caught in a lie, a little more trust is taken away. A strong relationship needs trust. Never ever lie about things essential to the relationship. You’re better off handling the truth if you’ve done something wrong than being caught in a lie.
Breakups can be good for your relationship if they are used as learning opportunities, but it’s important not to take them too hard.
