Ah, we all love a fresh start, don't we? But between charging up that new Fitbit and vowing to stay on budget, be sure to make a few promises to your sweetheart. Here are eight relationship resolutions every couple should make.
My girlfriend likes safety, security and endless amounts of back rubs. I bring her flowers just because, and write notes about my feelings. The feelings are there, I love her immensely, I just feel it's so unnecessary to verbalize it daily. Words don't matter, actions do.
over the years and through a lot of bad encounters and relationships, I adapted and went from sweet and innocent to sexy vixen with an edge. Now that I am in a happy and committed relationship, I have some valuable advice for all of those single girls out there. I wish I had this kind of wisdom when I was on the hunt for my Prince.
I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to say that my best friend is also my boyfriend. With all that said, it isn't always dinner by flowers and candlelight. In fact, it's more often than not a daily negotiation of the cleaning duties. So, in one week...I discovered the formula for the age old question of how to get any man to do the dishes.
We spend too much time worrying about stuff we can't control, like our partner's attraction to other people. Perhaps the smarter strategy is to dedicate more time to stuff we can control.

When in a relationship, be it long-term dating, live-in or married, multiple dynamics are at play that determine how healthy, fresh and happy it is. As opposed to lack of attention on our significant other being an issue, the challenge some couples face is too little time spent engaged in activities outside of their relationship. Whatever your source of staleness or sameness, there are some simple dos and don'ts to keep it fresh, alive and healthy.
One of the perks of dating is that you're not exclusive until you say you are. There's no crime in realizing that you're not clicking with someone you're seeing, liking someone else better, or being bored.
