Relationship Solution Series Issue 5 Prioritize

By Staff Writer

Relationships can lose their luster. Make yours a priority—and make it last!

Keep your love life going by making your relationship a focal point in your life.  What can you do Here are a few tips:

Do the things you used to do when you met. 

The first thing is to show appreciation for your partner. Take the time to compliment each other, place a surprise love note in the car, contact each other throughout the day by phone, text or email, show up with flowers after work—in other words, show interest in each other like you did when the relationship was new. There is nothing more important than letting your partner know how much they mean to you.

Plan date nights. 

Schedule time without outside interference. If you have kids, hire a sitter and spend quality time with just each other to make sure you are connecting. Prioritize time together just like you would any other important event in your life. Demonstrate your commitment to each other by prioritizing time together.

Respect one another. 

Say “thank you, “, “I appreciate your…” Showing respect seals the deal that you are committed to keeping your relationship #1.
