1. Don’t Make Plans Too Far Into The Future.

As we have pointed out above, we are all for the relationship to last for a long, long time. However, that does not mean that you and your partner, at this budding point, should be trying to figure out that far ahead into the future.

Hold back on those thoughts of marriage, children or mutual investments for now.

While there are those who enjoy a bright future together even if they had jumped to the next stage as early as they have, you must consider what challenges may lie ahead in contrast to what you have now as preparation. Take time and some very serious thought for huge decisions such as the future.

Plan for each of your own personal goals that can work well into the relationship. Don’t unnecessarily pressure yourselves to mature without going through tests and time.

2. Spend as much time as you need together.

This one may not look like a reminder for you, but it is important to have time together. Being able to physically connect with each other is a major requirement for any healthy relationship. It’s always fun and memorable to be with your partner.

Plan certain days in the week where it is solely about you two. Clear your calendar and do some worthwhile activities. You can opt to stay in and slowly burn time, or go out and find adventure of your own. Whatever way it is, just make sure that your fun doesn’t get in the way of each other’s life priorities.

For those in a long-distance relationship, this tip works just as well, if not better. The operative word here is “need,” so take the amount of days you think perfectly fit for your case. It will need effort, but it will also pay off with that euphoric feeling.

3. Give each other space.

As much as you love being close with your partner, you should also give them space. Whether staying away from them for a time or allowing them to process their thoughts and emotions on their own, both are traits you should have in your relationship if you want it to last.

Being in each other’s personal space can be suffocating. Eventually cause the slow destruction of the love you built. Further, always sticking with them can affect how you see yourself, your individuality.

Even at any point in your partnership, always respect each other’s space and individual needs, and never lose your own person. A healthy relationship should never cause you to shrink but grow.

4. Try to regulate the PDA.

We have established the value of being intimate beforehand, of how it can help build healthy relationships, and we are not in any way against it. These are to be expected from a loving couple.

You and your partner must also understand that not everyone around you might have the same stance or level of comfort about it. Thus, when you are out in public, try to tone down the intimate, physical touches.

You will have to discuss with your partner acceptable public displays of affection. Most important factor of all, what is comfortable for you both, in and out of your private space.

Because, hey, love between two people cannot be measured simply by how much they show in front of others.

5. Be friends with your partner’s friends.

Counting aside you and their family, your partner’s close friends are the most important people in their life. They know so much about your partner, from likes and dislikes, to thought patterns and idiosyncrasies. They are the people your partner will want you to be cordial with, if not best friends too.

So why not try to get along with them? There will be many things to learn from them, especially how you can better handle things that might mean greatly to your partner. These friends have weathered the storm with your partner in the past, and that’s one skill you will want to acquire if you want to stay as long as and strong as their bonds have been.

Moreover, for those in a long-distance relationship, being part of the circle is a good starting point into knowing things about your partner that may not be as easy to do because of the space between.

Remember: The family we have made are just as beautiful and important as the ones we are born into.
