HOW TO CREATE LOVING INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS

RULE 1: COMPROMISE

This is important in any relationship. You can’t both have everything your own way all the time and be in a loving and sharing relationship. Just make sure one person doesn’t give in to the other every time. Take it in turns, or go with the one to whom the choice is most important on that occasion.

RULE 2: DEVELOP SHARED RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES AND COMMON GOALS

Finding common interests is imperative for maintaining a long-lasting, loving relationship. This is the one quality that most long-term marriages have in common. If you have no leisure activities you share at the moment, talk about it, find at least one. It may be bushwalking, gardening, ballroom dancing, investing in the share market together, doing a course together at the local community centre or joining common purposes and goals keeps a relationship close too. You may have the common goal of fixing the back garden, so you both need to plan and work on that,- or buying a new car, so you both decide what has to happen to achieve it; or moving house,- or buying a new refrigerator,- or going on a family holiday,- or painting the kitchen. Keep common objectives to the fore by placing your steps of progress and ultimate goal on your refrigerator. Talk about the steps and when you achieve the goal, celebrate. This is most important. Then choose your next goal. The more of these activities you share, the more you will have to talk about when you are together and the more you will enjoy one another’s company.
