You signed up to be in a relationship with your partner so it is the responsibility for both of you to maintain and nurture the love you share together. If you don’t check out emotionally, or let things bubble up and fester, you will be surprised at how easily you can resolve any argument that arises in your relationship.
It takes two people to be in a relationship and both of you should be contributing to making things work together on a daily basis. It is not one person’s job to maintain or control the partnership. If you are finding that you are ending up in relationships where you are always giving more than you are receiving, it is time to get to the bottom of why you allow yourself to end up here.
A great relationship is one where you are both there for each other, but you still have your own dreams, goals, and separate interests. Of course, you should always have each other’s back and support one another, but never give up who you are as a person for someone else.
If the love between you both isn’t reciprocated after a reasonable of amount of time, you may be setting yourself up for a big disappointment. You need to be honest with yourself about what’s really going on because you KNOW when they are into you! Fantasizing over what you hope will happen isn’t reality, and it will keep you stuck in a place you should never allow yourself to be.
Romance and intimacy needs to be nurtured by both of you. Don’t let it take a back seat to everything else. You and your partner should look forward to coming home to each other because you are happy together. Taking the time to prioritize each other and doing those small gestures that continually show love towards each other is the glue to a successful partnership.
