Hey y'all! I've taken these tips from observations I've made from watching my parents and grandparents and have practiced them in my own relationship. Hope y'all enjoy :)

1. Choose to trust
If you love someone, you have to learn to put your guards down and not listen to rumors. To love someone means to trust them with your heart, even though you could get hurt.

2. Don't set rules for your partner
Instead, tell them what you don't want to hear about. Telling your boyfriend you don't want him to get drunk will make him feel like you're holding him back. Say instead "If you get drunk, please don't tell me about it so I don't worry about you." This will allow you to tell him what you're uncomfortable with AND reasoning behind it.

3. Don't start drama when you feel distant
We're all going through something and sometimes it's easy to tell our partner but sometimes it's not. When they're being dry and only giving 20% into the relationship, pick up your 50% as well as their 30%. (This does NOT apply if they regularly treat you shitty. That's called abuse.)

4. Love without expecting anything back
Loving unconditionally will make you a stronger person as well as strengthen your relationship. Bring them lunch to work or take them on a date randomly and don't expect them to make it up. It'll keep the relationship feeling fresh.

5. Never go to bed mad
This is the biggest rule for my relationship. If we fight, we have to talk through it before we fall asleep. It forces the problem to be resolved.

6. See the problem from their prospective
This will give you humility and keep your ego out of the way.
