To keep a relationship in its finest state, compatibility is a key factor between partners. You need to share great chemistry in order to make beautiful music together. However, there are relationships that inevitably fall to pieces because of some negative traits and aspects that one or both partners may possess. These range from being overly jealous and insecure that can very much affect the relationship in a bad light.
A successful relationship is one that is built and developed with love and understanding, which means a whole lot of effort and time. If you are in an intimate commitment right now and would want it to work all throughout, avoid these negative factors that can certainly eliminate your dream of having a relationship for keeps.
This tops the list of breakup causes. Being overly possessive or jealous brings imbalance in the relationship. The tendency to control your partner's life is magnified and this alone can cause him or her to stray away from you. No one wants to feel trapped in a relationship. Give your partner breathing space and do not force him or her to do things just because you are jealous. If you feel you are being overly possessive, speak to your partner about it and discuss how he or she can help you manage the issue. Be willing to change your over possessive or jealous ways.
Physical intimacy strengthens your relationship, therefore, it is important to maintain or heighten even more the romance and passion in your love life. Be creative and continuously look for ways that would please your partner. Sex may not be the only thing that keeps a relationship going, but it is of extreme significance if you're looking for a long-term commitment. Women can surprise their partners with sexy and romantic lingerie while men can surprise their partners with gifts of the same kind. Do not underestimate sexual issues as ignoring the little things now may lead to more serious problems in the future such as cheating and infidelity.
Do not ruin your present relationship by bringing back the past such as former boyfriends or girlfriends, past flings, and broken affairs. Throw all these "past talk" out of the window and start anew. What matters is the present and the future of your relationship. Trust your partner and he/she will do the same for you.
Financial issues may cause problems and disappointments in a relationship. It is always best to discuss money problems with your partner, in a civil manner, and work your way towards positive financial solutions. Never fight over money. Just talk.
If you're still seeing your ex-lover just because you're friends, chances are, your partner will not approve of it. Keeping in touch with former flings isn't a good idea. If you are serious about making your present relationship work, avoid anything that has to do with your exes. Do not ruin your relationship now with ghosts of the past.
