HERE'S OUR KEYS TO A SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP
1) There's no lightening bolt. Most successful relationships are revealed over time. Yes, a lightening bolt moment can happen, but don't wait for it. Get rid of the fantasy you've created in your mind and get out there and take the time to get to know someone.
2) Have a real talk about what "love" means to you. You can say you love one another but your definitions of love could be polar opposite.
3) Keep ticking. Take the time to learn what makes your partner tick. Pay attention to their passions. It could be anything from cars to social injustice. If they're passionate about something encourage them to stay involved weather it involves you or not.
4) One of the strategies you should have in the back of your mind is comparison. When you compare your partner you're setting yourself up for failure. Love your partner for who they are not who you want them to be.
