    Is your favorite drink blocking your ability to have an orgasm? A cocktail or glass of wine can help us to relax and even feel a little sexier. But does it actually result in better sex? Probably not. What does alcohol really do to our sex life? Let’s first look at what happens to the […]
  • Look Sexy Naked
    Though we may not be too critical of our partner’s flaws — after all, our lover is only human — most women excel at seeing even the most minute problems with our own bodies. And that perception can make it really difficult to share ourselves with one of the people we love the most. Whether […]

10 Essential elements of a strong relationship

30 October; Author: Niyija

These are the essential elements of a strong, long-lasting relationship. Without each of these, the relationship will not be balanced and partners will begin to grow apart:

relationships

1. Trust

2. Communication

3. Commitment

4. Intimacy

5. Willingness to compromise on the things that don’t “change the world”

6. Sharing ‘burdens’ together – household tasks, emotional support, childcare

7. Quality time together, without the interruption of kids or work

8. Connect daily whether it’s a quick meal together, an SMS, a kiss on the cheek, or a run after work

9. Sharing common goals and interests

10. Building each other up – your partner must love you in a way that makes you a better person — so that you can both grow and reach your goals without the other partner feeling insecure

Falling in love again

Let’s go right back to the beginning… the time when you and your partner fell madly in love. The word “fall” implies that you had no control. That it just happened, and there was nothing you could do about it. That’s true.

Falling in love is easy. It’s such a natural experience, and it’s not something you have to DO, it’s something that just happens TO you.

Maintaining the love

Falling in love was easy, but now we need to maintain that love.

Just like maintenance on your house or maintenance on your car, love needs maintenance and nurturing to keep it going.

It is absolutely normal for the “honeymoon” feeling to fade. But it doesn’t mean that you’ve fallen out of love, or that you have decided to spend your life with the wrong person.

Have you ever had a silver tea-set or some silver cutlery? Have you noticed how it gets tarnished if you don’t polish it? Love is like that. You can make it “bright and shiny” again, with just a bit of effort.

Long-lasting love is also a decision

True love is not just a feeling. It is also a decision that you make every morning when you wake up next to your partner. It’s a decision that you make despite morning breath, dirty dishes and bad-mood days.

“Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime, that it becomes a miracle” Amy Bloom
