Relationships are hard once you get past the initial honeymoon period where everyone gets on really well and the sex is amazing. You have to work at a healthy relationship in order to make the relationship last longer and it is important that you are happy, that your stress levels are not through the roof and that it doesn’t affect your health in a negative way.
There are many relationships all across Australia right now that are going through the wringer and unfortunately, many people are breaking up as you read this article. The problems start happening in the bedroom at first and then things steadily go downhill from there.
Having sex in a relationship that is entirely predictable is something that needs to be addressed and so if you need to bring sex toys into the bedroom to liven things up a little then this is something that you both need to talk about and to agree upon. The vast majority of people in relationships who do introduce these kinds of toys into their lovemaking tend to stay together for longer and the relationship strengthens as a direct result.
This is one thing that you can do to strengthen your relationship and to make it healthier and the following are just some others.
- Learn how to communicate properly – If you have grown increasingly frustrated at how the relationship is going in the direction that it is heading in then it doesn’t make sense to stay quiet about it and so you need to communicate together to fix it. Do not be afraid to ask questions of each other concerning each other’s feelings, opinions and what they think the relationship needs.
- Be flexible in your approach – Nobody likes to experience change but it is a healthy part of any growing relationship and it helps to keep it healthy. You cannot be too set in your ways and you have to be open to new suggestions and that includes ones that include your lovemaking. There is no need to be critical of each other but you could point out things that you like to do in the bedroom and encourage your partner to try them out.
- Remember to fight fair – It can be very tempting to bring up mistakes that our partners have made in the past in a futile attempt to win any argument but you must resist the need to do so. Try to cool your mind down before you start talking to your partner and don’t let your emotions get in the way of a sensible conversation. Be clear and to the point about what it is that you are upset about always address the problem and don’t attack the person.
It can be very difficult trying to meet your soul partner nowadays so if you have found someone that you feel is the one then this is something that you really do need to work hard on and just don’t walk away because things are not as you expected them to be.
