Solid relationships are progressive. Milestones are reached when goals are set. And this simply solidifies your union. You can’t expect perfect results though as none of us is perfect, but you can have perfect hopes when you’re with the right one.
As Valentine approaches; this is the time to reassess why we are in a relationship and what we truly want from it. Yes what you desire could be love and happiness. But to attain these things mean more from you. Here are five relationship goals you should create with your partner this valentine.
Communication is a key to any healthy relationship. We all want someone who can listen to us, who can understand us, who can feel us and who can make us understand them. It works both ways, you want to be heard and you also need to listen. One goal that will set your relationship at a more steady and progressive pace is communication. And this should be a goal that you can easily set this Valentine.
The technological advancements of the 21st century are not helping couples to be more present in their relationships. There are the tablets, smartphones and laptops constantly seeking our attention. So you can be near someone and yet you are so far away. The way to gain someone’s trust and acceptance is to make them aware that you’re not so far away. You are in fact close to them in body and spirit. And the best way to attain this is to be attentive to their needs. Know their desires and focus on how you can meet these desires. To secure a better relationship you need to start being more attentive and present in your relationship. And this Valentine offers you the opportunity to do just that.
We all love surprises. We want to surprise someone and see the shocking expression in their face. The same works when someone surprises you. With surprises you know that the person surprising you values you. They see you as someone special who needs to be pampered and treated in a specific way. This Valentine should give you the chance not only to surprise your partner, but also to make it a goal to keep doing this to keep the relationship alive.
Saying the magic words
Some relationships would have worked out better only if couples were more cautious with their words. Perhaps if they said more of the right things rather than the wrong ones, the relationship would not only be alive today but it it’ll blossom. Couples are not saying the magic words enough. “I am sorry,” “I love you,” “Thank you,” “I miss you,” these are some words that will always soften the aggression of anyone. Yes we make mistakes, but how often are we doing well to either correct these mistakes or make someone understand our imperfections by saying the magic words.
Spend more time together
Yes there could be kids, there could be work, and there could be family. There are always distractions. But the strength of any relationship is in the ability for the couple to navigate through these distractions and make time for each other. You may not always be together, but even from afar a simple phone call could be the reassurance the other person needs.
Getting the ideal relationship is hard. You should not expect this by just wishing it, but you should be willing to work to make it happen. It takes commitment, effort and time. But if you are patient enough to make corrections and push forward, things could work out just right. And this valentine season could offer you the best chance to make that needed start to taking your relationship to a whole new level.
