Go on a little baecation
Getting away together may help couples to focus more on each other. North Western University’s licenced clinical therapist at the Family Institute, Alexandra Solomon said in an article published online that “It is important to discuss how much time you are going to spend together. Decide whether you want to have more sex than usual and get a chance to talk about what you hope to achieve as a couple in terms of your relationship”
Arguments in a relationship are always there. Try to find a way to avoid them. Apologies when you are wrong and don’t start fights over small things. Rather laugh more than fighting more. That will make your partner to miss you even more. Call him/her every day, just to check up on him/her. Also remind them that you love them.
Learn to complement each other
Try to focus more on the positive than the negative. For example, even if you have seen him with a new haircut before, complement him when he gets one. He looks handsome.
