A few weeks ago I asked for topic suggestions for the weekly email. Relationships was a topic that was suggested. I am by far not a person who should be giving relationship advice. A person who is single and has had too many relationships blow up in their face should not be giving advice. A person who has had too many bad experiences and holds someone who is trying hard to be understanding at arms length should not be giving advice. Below are bits and pieces of things I have been told over the years. I hope you find it helpful.
No relationship is impeccable constantly. Be that as it may, in a solid relationship, the two individuals like the relationship more often than not. An incredible relationship takes more than fascination — it takes work, and both of you must be eager to place in the exertion. Here are a few hints for building a sound relationship:
• Love yourself: Being OK with what your identity is implies you’ll be a more joyful accomplice.
• Communicate: Converse with your accomplice about your emotions.
• Be genuine: Be honest with one another about what you do, think, and feel. Genuineness makes trust. Not many things hurt a relationship more than lies.
• Give each other some space: Couple’s time is extraordinary, however hanging out isn’t. It’s beneficial to have your own companions and interests outside of the relationship.
•Agree to oppose the idea: You’re not continually going to agree, and that is alright. The significant thing is to regard each other’s suppositions and thoughts.
•Forgive and request absolution: Everyone commits errors. Be eager to apologize for yours — and acknowledge your accomplice’s expressions of remorse.

Never pressure your accomplice into accomplishing something they would prefer not to do, or let your accomplice pressure you — assent is an absolute necessity.
•Take care of your sexual wellbeing: Converse with your accomplice about how you will ensure each other against sexually transmitted diseases and unintended pregnancy.
