Always stay involved with your partner
Obviously, with a little bit of breathing space… you need to relate to each other and bond at every moment you possibly can, the moment you get less involved with your partner is the same moment you are creating a distance and over a period of time if you persist – the distance will also increase. Keep the connection flowing but as stated above don’t over do it.
Conflicts arise… Give your partner a helping hand to bury them
There is no point shouting or getting aggressive when something arises, remember life comes with obstacles if it was that easy… we’d all be single and fighting the battle of life alone. That is why when an obstacle comes your way or your partners way you must sit down and quietly speak about it, if you disagree with something he/she say – be polite about it as if you end up passionately disagreeing this could hit a nerve…. Do not be fearful to speak about the difficulties you may have, if you avoid difficulties then they will only come to chase you later – deal with them right there and then.
Be transparent and direct with your partner
There is no point beating around the bush, whatever is in your mind… say it exactly the way it is so that your partner knows exactly what is going on – remember if you feel comfortable to express your needs, wants, fears, desires then your partner will feel the same comfort level… start the trend in your relationship from the start by making direct eye contact and speaking to your partner about any issues that have arise or may arise in the future so he/she is well aware of them.
