How do I make my relationship with my boyfriend last?
Question Posted Sunday December 12 2010, 5:48 pm
I have a history of being in bad abusive relationships and I think I have finally found the one guy who will treat me good. I want to make sure that were as happy as we can be. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to make a relationship last. He is a really great guy and I love him to death and I don't want us to end up like half od the people in the world who fall out of love. I don't want to be just his friend. I want to always feel the way I do now. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I don't want to ever lose him.

Just be yourself with him. If he's treating you well and you think he may be 'the one' so-to-speak, then there's clearly something that drew him to you to begin with. Don't try to change yourself or anything like that.
Also, try to keep the spark going. Don't fall into doing the same routines over and over again. Every once in a while do something spontaneous. Or surprise him with a gift. Or go do something both of you have really wanted to try to do. Or volunteer somewhere together.
Also, be sure to always communicate with him. If he's truly a great guy, he'll want to know how you're feeling and have an open line of communication. If you're ever having doubts, if you're upset, if you just want someone to share your thoughts and dreams with.. or if you just want to tell him you love him, do it.
Warning though. Eventually, you'll move out of the "honeymoon" phase. You won't always feel as head over heels as you do now, but as long as the two of you are honest with each other and love each other, the next stage can be just as fun.
A relationship takes work and there is no guaranteed method for maintaining one. You can just do your best to appreciate what you have now.
