10 Tips for a Healthier Relationship – From Her

Healthy-Relationship2

Two of your friends used to make a great couple. Things were going great for both of them but suddenly everything turned sour. Wondering what went wrong? Let’s make sure you are not repeating your friend’s mistakes!

1. Don’t play ‘I am the boss’ to prove your worth.

Being possessive is an integral part of any matured relationship. But too much of this can fatally affect your equation with your girl. Don’t be the controller of your relationship. Ego is a monster. Respect her as an individual. You should make her feel protected with your presence. At the same time, make sure that she doesn’t get breathless with your bossy nature.

2. Be honest and open to your partner.

 We are all human beings and to err is human. Making mistakes is a guaranteed facet of life, admitting our mistakes is the hard part. Please remember honesty matters in the long run. If something goes wrong between you two because of your misdeeds, be truthful to your girl. It would definitely save your relationship.

    Defs a fan of #5 and #7. Going on three months with my boyfriend and I feel like we're are slowly becoming more and more distant because he is so busy. He has a lot on his plate but what makes it worse is that he is terrible at managing his time. I have gone way out of my way to be supportive for him but I'm getting tired of being the one who always reaches out. I basically agreed to go a month without seeing him so he can focus but after a week of missing him I'm not sure I can go on for another three weeks. Any thoughts or advice?

    It's a tough situation Tina. I would think maybe a mini-weekend get away may do the trick to reignite some of the flame. If he's not willing to make a sincere effort, then you have to ask yourself where the relationship is going and if he's worth spending time on.

    Have you told him that you want more time from him? Men tend to be clueless unless literally told what the problem is. Do not beat around the bush, be upfront and confident. If he is into the relationship he will make time for you and work through the issues with you.

    You have to remember one of the foundations of a successful relationship is having the ability and comfort to communicate freely.

      Thanks Jordan!

      We have been spending some time apart which has been good. I know he wants to make time for me but he legitimately doesn't have any. I would never want to stand in the way of his dreams and success so I'm okay with giving him the time to focus.

      I have told him that I want to spend more time with him since he is leaving soon for 8 months so we coordinated a schedule for when we see each other. This is helpful because it doesn't keep me guessing when we will hang out. For now I will just be patient and go with the flow of things :). Appreciate the advice…
