Stay as Friends
In a relationship, it’s important to treat your partner with the same amount of respect, kindness, appreciation as you would do with a close friend.

Physical Intimacy is an extension of a healthy relationship. Often, when the relationship becomes a little old, couples get busy in their work, physical intimacy gets lost somewhere. However, you both should turn up the heat more often. Do not worry about those dishes in the sink or about mailing some presentation to your boss, just leave it and go ahead and woo your partner. This will bring closeness and strengthen your bond with your partner. Set the mood and get set go!
Keep the Playfulness alive
To have a strong relationship, it’s necessary to be playful with your partner. Do not get dull and boring, it’s fine if at times you get a little frustrated but don’t make it a routine. And try not to get defensive, instead, try responding with a joke and its fine to laugh at yourself at times. It’s not a big deal!
Having a couple of rituals should not be a duty rather you should be excited about it. So, if you set any couple of rituals, both of you should like it. For example, you can plan a massage time every weekend, having coffee together at least once in a week, chatting every night for a while before going to sleep. All these make your bond stronger and you stay connected with each other.
Be a good listener
Strengthen your relationship simply by listening! Being an attentive listener lets your partner know that his/her thoughts, feelings, and opinions do matter to you and is important. Moreover, active listening encourages partners to open up and willing to share.
Be Yourself and don’t try to Change your Partner
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Nobody is perfect and no one wants to show their “Dark” side. And we can’t even pretend to be someone else whole our life, so just be yourself and do not put on that mask.
And why you want to change your partner>? You fell in love with him as he was right? So, why you want to make those changes? And even if you succeed in making those changes, you never know if you will be able to like that “New” partner. So, do not try changing anyone, love the way they are and love yourself as well.
Respect each other
One of the ways to show someone you love is to respect his/her point of view. Respecting your partner does not mean you have to agree on each and everything that your partner says but listen to your partner’s opinions and you can have a healthy discussion over it. You both might have different opinions but to have a stable and strong relationship, you both have to come to an arithmetic average right?
Communication is the key to any relationship. When people stop communicating with each other, they stop relating with each other hence, the connection gets lost. Good communication is a fundamental part of a strong relationship. You should express your desires, feelings to your partner and you will see the reciprocation flowing through. As long as you are communicating well, you can work through whatever you are going through.
Send random texts
You might be busy working so as your partner. But sending a random text just to say “I Love You” or “How’s your day going” might add more love and care into your relationship. And sending a text hardly takes a minute. Show and express your love and care towards your partner. Do not get too indulged with the work that you forget about you and your partner. Trust me, the partners who send each other texts or talk over the phone at least once in working hours are happier in a relationship.
In order to strengthen your relationship, you have to work on it. The above tips to strengthen your relationship would be of great help for your present relationship as well as in the future. A healthy relationship is a sign of living a great and happy life!
