- Communicate. You should talk to your partner often, and express your feeling, point to the other. This not only help him/her to know how you feel but also make some of your messy feeling clear.
- Listen, spend time understanding his/her points. You should listen carefully and question him/her, help him/her know that you care about his/her important problems.
Listen and spend time to understand your partner
- Check your relationship periodic. You should not be worry about maintaining your relationship, but a periodic test helps a lot. Ask your partner about your relationship, and how everything is going. This can help you to understand how the other feels in every specific time of your relationship.
Check your relationship periodic
- Solve your conflicts at appropriate times. You may want to solve the problem immediately because you are afraid it will get worse. However, sometimes it is better to wait until both of you are cool down; at this time, you can talk calmly and come up with a good solution.
- Balance your lifestyle. New relationships make you feel you do not have enough time for your partner, but you should maintain your balance between friends, family and your love. If your life becomes unbalanced, then you start to blame your partner about your issues, this possibly cause damage to the relationship. The balance helps you calm down.
Balance your life first
- For the relationship to develop, everybody needs to change over time, and you still can be together if you care about the others feeling. Be open to change, and think about the ways you can change but still can be together. For example, if he has a new hobby, you can support him by joining it.
Keep support your partner to develop your relationship
- Accept the differences and let them strengthen your relationship. Do not take differences as problems; take them as chances to be with your partner which can take you out of your comfort zone. Differences might bring good chances to both of you, and they are not always problems.
