Love Daily

If you want love to survive, it needs daily nourishing. You can’t neglect your relationship and expect it to flourish. Just like a plant that won’t live for very long without water, love will die if you don’t pay attention to it.

Love is not something you have but something you do!

And if you get into the habit of doing something for the one you love day in day out, it can only help your relationship blossom.

That can be anything from a long and passionate kiss, to remembering to get something from the store he wanted, from saying “I love you” to giving a genuine compliment. The more loving things you do the better. There’s no need to restrict yourself to one!

12 Ways to Beat Boredom in Your Relationship

Boredom is a dangerous state for any relationship. You think you’re okay, and in most cases you are, and everything works out fine. But sometimes (too often) if the excitement is missing for any length of time, it creates a gap that can be filled all too easily by an affair.

12 Ways to Beat Boredom in Your RelationshipWhile there are times of excitement followed by times of quiet in almost every relationship, never let yours get into a rut that feels like it will last forever.

Here are some tips to keep your relationship buzzing, and if you’re already bored the sooner you start the better!

1

Do Something Spontaneous

After you’ve been together a while, he thinks he knows everything about you, and you think you know everything about him, but you can never know everything about another person. Surprise him with something he wasn’t expecting you to do to break the monotony. This might be tickets to watch his favorite team or a trip to Paris, depending on your budget. It might be something new in bed or something new for dinner. It doesn’t have to be a surprise that’s completely out of character, just something you feel like doing that you don’t normally do and that will please him. Wear a new color he’s never seen you in, buy some new sexy undies or suggest a walk after dinner when you’d normally just collapse on the sofa – anything.

Travel

Sometimes, going to a new place can bring life back into a relationship. Go on vacation together or just take a weekend off at a local motel or campground or visit a nearby city. Some couples will take at least one night every month away in order to keep things spicy. Don’t keep going back to the same place—that’s just creating a new habit. Instead, make the effort to regularly go somewhere new and interesting you’d both like. Read more »

How Do You Know You Can Trust A Guy?

Trust doesn’t happen overnight, so don’t worry if it’s not there right at the beginning of a relationship. As you get to know a guy you’ll find out over time if you can trust him or not by what he says and what he does. Give yourself time to get to know the real him, and don’t fall for him right away until you do.

How Do You Know You Can Trust A Guy?Here are some clear signs that you CAN trust a man. No one is perfect, but if any of these signs are missing, can you really trust him?

1

He’s Honest With Others

If you catch him telling little white lies it’s an indication that it’s easy for him to come up with an excuse or reason to not tell the truth. Everyone has those moments, but in general, if he’s trustworthy you shouldn’t be catching him being untruthful with anyone, not just you. If he’s dishonest with others, he’ll have no qualms about being dishonest with you.

9 Signs of a Bad First Date

Not every date will be perfect. There will always be the one that got away, the evening you’d rather not think about, or the guy that made you cringe. However, there are times when you’re in the date and you’re not quite sure if this is going to be a bad one or not, and you may wonder whether to agree to a second date or whether he is likely to ask you.

9 Signs of a Bad First DateSometimes a date that starts out badly can recover and end up being a good one, but if it has one or more of these signs consistently during your time together, the first date will probably be the last date as well.

1

Lack Of Interest

If he’s more occupied with his phone, the menu, or what the neighboring table is ordering than he is in talking with you, chances are, things won’t work out. A good date means he wants to get to know you, and he’s putting everything else aside to be present. If he’s busy taking calls from work, responding to messages, or checking his social media, he’s not interested enough in you.

Living Together Before Marriage

When I first met my husband we were post graduate students together in the same town but after six months our new careers took us to different places, and it took almost two years of long-distance hassle before we were together again.

At that point, we moved in together, then bought a house together, then married pretty soon after that and have never been apart since.

So my view of whether living together is a good idea is colored a bit by that. I think it’s a good idea and much better than living over a hundred miles apart! I like the idea of living with someone before tying the knot so that you can see how you rub along together when you’re not on your best behavior. My view is that you never really know someone until you live with them.
