How to make a relationship work

A relationship comes with a lot of factors that makes the bond stronger. No matter how long the relationship has been shouldn’t be the focus but rather the sacrifices that both partners has dedicated to make it work. This post will be illustrating some factors on how to make a relationship work.

It should be noteworthy to know that not all relationship can be perfect but making it better is possible. If the following ideas on how to make a relationship work are well followed and done by both partners,there will be a definite positive change in the relationship. There’s no definite harm in trying.

1. UNDERSTANDING

You can’t be in a relationship where you don’t seem to understand each other,nothing is ever going to work out fine even if all seems normal it will just seem like a script to you two. Understanding your partner is the basic and most important factor that can help co exist any couple in a relationship and it is a major factor on how to make a relationship work. When we talk of understanding,we don’t mean just understand your partner’s physical status but understanding both your partner’s mental and financial status as well.

Most partners fail to build a better relationship because they seem not to understand each other. Its like a chase where none of you seem to understand the other’s point if view. Like in financial aspect,if both partners have different IQs on the financial status,there’s no possible means to keep the family or relationship financially stable.

Being in a relationship comes with a lot of understanding which can help eliminate so much negativity towards each other.
Get to listen more to each other,try to see some meaning from each other’s view and most of all you two as partners willing to make your relationship work should not see each other to be imperfect when it comes to understanding yourselves.

2. COMMUNICATION

Having the first main factor above,then looking at the next should be your communication. How do you communicate with your partner? How do you present issues to your partner? These are things that has a lot to do with communication. If there is no communication going on between you two then there’s no possible means you can build or make that relationship work.

Communicating with your partner once a while or bringing up the same conversations can make the relationship seem odd and quite boring. Try to spice up your communication system,talk about new things,new events and new places you two can go during the holidays. Share your dreams and aspirations with each other,don’t make the relationship idle by talking about serious issues like the economy report.

If you find it hard to build the face to face system,go first with texting. Text your partner about how awesome he or she is,text your partner some jokes to spice up his or her day and when you two meet it can serve as a means of more communication even if you two have to reminisce,just keep it flowing and it can really help your relationship to work.

3. SHOW SOME AFFECTION

Affections should not just end after getting married,No! it should not stop after knowing and understanding each other better. Affections should be continuous,steady and true. Remember when your partner was not yet yours! How you craved so much for him or her by telling your partner how you feel or miss him or her,where’s all that now?

Showing affections towards your partner can really help your relationship work whether married or not. Constantly holding hands with your partner,smiling and telling each other how cute and lovely your partner is and also making your partner know deep down you are really grateful to have such a partner can be a bedrock to spice your relationship.

If your partner doesn’t do any of it,be the first to get the wheel rolling for him or her. Show true affection and make your partner know every single day how much you love and care for him or her.

4. HONESTY

I don’t trust my spouse because he lies a lot! That happens because most partners are not honest in their relationship. No good and loving relationship comes from where there are lies and cheat. You can not make your relationship work or stand better if you are not being honest to him or her.

When you are honest and true to your partner you make every challenge and risk seem easy for you two because there is trust and true love and the trust sprung because you were honest to your partner.

Being intimate with your partner doesn’t have to be for financial needs only,but being honest about your affections and how you see yourselves matters. Work on your path of honesty towards your partner and see how things gets better in your relationship as you two work with each other very well.

5. ROMANCE

Will you be ready to be in a relationship where you’re partner can not romance or show you some good love? If you are its either your not up to the age of being in a relationship. No relationship can work without true romance from each partner. Its like expecting a shop with no product to keep bringing customers. You can’t expect your relationship to work when your not in for some romance and good love. This most times can lead to cheating from either of you and likely if its you the man insisting on that,you can check on ways men make a romantic relationship.

If you want to know how to make relationship work you will need to give some thoughts to most basic things you might feel won’t matter but along the line they happen to really matter most.

Saying no to romance and love from your partner can be absurd to most even though they seem like they accept,deep down most wont mind to have an external affair which can really hurt your relationship.

Dress and look good for your partner,go on night dates with your partner and have some romantic nights out together.
Keep it up and watch as your relationship gets better than before

Relationship without sex

Can you be in a Relationship without Sex? The question is not just for you but for every love bird out there. Can your relationship survive without sex? Yes and no are definitely going to be the response but everyone is entitled to their own opinion as long as it works perfectly for them.

A little survey was carried about by the hookinfo team as to regards on how most relationship survives. We hear a lot about relationships collapsing for one reason or the other.
During the survey we realized that most people in a relationship can not do without sex and some are there for the love,care and communication. As some believe that their relationship can be perfect without sex,others disagree to it. We decided to get more insights about it and here are some reasons as to regards if a relationship can survive with or without sex and ways there relationship has survived.

Chixxy had this to say “A relationship without Sex will be Perfect” a relationship doesn’t have to be about sex”,she said.

Chixxy also went on to share from her own perspective other things that can spice a relationship without sex are,”Love,
Communication and Other fun activities like a Date night and Movie night can make a relationship perfect”.

Simplydebbie gave her opinion on what she thinks about a relationship without sex “It depends,it can be perfect and can’t also be,depending on the individuals involved”.

Simplydebbie went further on to throw more light for her reasons and here’s what she had to say “lovers in a relationship have to understand each other first,if they both decide to be in the relationship without having sex then it’s possible but when either you or your partner wants sex in the relationship and the other doesn’t,it can be hard and can lead to cheating and infidelity”.

Beatrice Mkbs had this to say “it totally depends on the couples,if one of them is a sex addict but because of his partner he or she has to abstain it could be difficult. But when both partners agree to it that there will be no sex then it can be perfect”.

She went on to give reasons why people should be in a relationship and she had this to say “i believe a relationship is something that people should love each other and be with each other without being materialistic attached”.

Beatrice Mkbs still said more on how a relationship without sex can survive,here’s what she had to say,”it can work if they both love each other,visiting and going out together,supporting each other and planning together because no serious partner will want someone who cannot plan with them.”

Do you think Beatrice mkbs opinions are right? Remember everyone is entitled to their own opinion,lets see what others had to say as well.

ALSO READ: THINGS TO DO WHEN YOUR PARTNER CHEATS ON YOU

Bella had this to say “Even if they don’t have sex all the time let it be once in a while because someone who is ready to be in a relationship should be of age and by then is an adult. So for a girl who is of the right age, is legally allowed to have sex but sometimes some guys or girls try as much to avoid it due to their own reasons. So the fact is that before someone will make up his or her mind that I can’t have sex in this relationship there is always a reason and it’s better your partner agree to go on with the relationship or not”.

Bella went on to share more,”whatever their decision is try to respect it,if you cannot,you can walk away but if you want to accept it be sure that your partner is not lying to you because some relationships, a girl can tell a guy she doesn’t want to have sex with him but will be having sex with another man behind her partner”.

To close the curtain,Bella made her opinion clear and this is what she had to say,”so my take on this is that sex is a choice and it comes with reasons and relationship isn’t about sex, a couple might decide not to have sex but the relationship will lead somewhere and sometimes the relationship might not work because of the other wants more”.

“I won’t want to have sex in a relationship with who am dating,to me its the best and safest because i don’t know how serious the relationship will be and also i can not have sex with someone who’s health status i have no idea of”- Feghor.

“Its quite difficult to be in a relationship without sex,especially when it is someone you are attracted to. I will not rush into sex with someone am in a relationship with. I will first let the relationship to be more promising like 6 or 8 months before i think of having sex with my partner”- Joy.

“Yes,i will have sex because i believe it will make the relationship last longer”- Tutu love.
(Everyone has a right to their opinion no criticism)

“I will love to be in a relationship without sex,but most guys will not want to be in a relationship without sex”-Gift.

Do you think most guys will always want to have sex with whoever they are dating or in a relationship with? Lets see what some of the guys had to say below.

HQ Britte had this to say “yes,i can be in a relationship without having sex,i don’t like having sex so i prefer not going to that aspect in my relationship. I believe that if you have sex in your relationship thinking it will work,it will never work out no matter the number of times you have sex,it will only become a habit in the relationship.

HQ Britte also talked on how he has been in a relationship without having sex,”i started with the determination that there will be no sex in my relationship. Sometimes i avoid being somewhere that’s too lonely with my girlfriend,i prefer where there ate few people around. I also try to keep myself in check and we don’t watch movies alone to avoid arousing the feelings of having sex”.

“It solely depends on the kind of relationship,if the relationship is all about materialistic things surely there’s going to be sex but if it is not centered on materialistic things in my relationship,then i do not see sex to be compulsory”- Pablo.

Do you think sex should be in a relationship when it is all about materialistic things? You can share your opinion on our twitter page @hookinfo1

Ways to move on after breaking up with your relationship partner

Have you ever been in a relationship where it seems you gave a lot for both you and your relationship partner? A relationship that you were so committed to and made a lot of sacrifices for the relationship to work?

So many of us have been in such relationship only to get our hearts broken by our so called partner. Being in the relationship is not the matter,walking out of the relationship might be painful but the major part is trying to let go of the person you love that is your relationship partner.

We have seen a lot of people come out of a broken relationship and they can’t let go or forget the person they were dating.

Some go as far as getting a therapist to help them forget the person they love totally but truth be told it won’t work that way.

Forgetting who you love is really difficult and only when you are consistent,you can let go. That doesn’t mean all hope is lost,there are other ways you can make use of to forget your relationship partner.

Trying the following ways below doesn’t guarantee total or a quick memory loss about what you had with your relationship partner,but it will help you to move on in Life as a heart break is not a death sentence.

WORK ON YOURSELF

Working on yourself doesn’t mean working out,no,you need to heal completely within and outside. You got a text or a call from your partner and next thing he or she says to you is,”its over this relationship cannot work”. Its a striking blow to you right? You felt like your heart is so heavy that you can’t walk or talk to anyone. This is where you working on yourself comes in and you do that by first;

  • Love yourself: you will feel bad but don’t feel so sad about it (i understand how hard it can be). Don’t hate yourself,don’t ever give yourself the impression of you being so reckless or stupid truth is bad things happens to good people for no reason and you my dear being someone who gave in so much to make the relationship work is definitely a good person. Cheer up and appreciate yourself for who you are. Remember this,you are who you are because you my friend is a lovely angel (male or female).
  • Forgive the person: You can’t say you have moved on and deep in your heart you know you have not forgiven your relationship partner for breaking your heart. As it takes time to heal and move on so is forgiveness required. I remember getting a break up message from my ex,as sad as it was i could not bring myself to hate my ex rather i took a deep breath for some time and just said to myself “i will let go”. Forgiving your relationship partner or ex for whatever reason for the break up will give you the freedom for you to move on.
  • Change your thoughts: Everyone who got their heart broken are bound to keep on thinking about their ex or relationship partner time after time. It could take months or if so attached and emotionally depressed,years before your thoughts will change. In order to move on,you need to work on your thoughts and try as much as possible to breathe in and out whenever the thoughts of your ex comes into your mind. As hard as it may seem to be,finding a way to change your thoughts will really help you move on and help heal you within time.
  • Spend time with family and friends: one way for anyone to forget a bad day at work or anywhere is spending good time with friends or family. Lets say you didn’t tell your family or friends about the heart break,there will be no possible way you will be all moody and absent minded when you are around with good friends and family who means well for you.

This will help heal you and as well help reshape your thoughts. You go out with them,parties and the rest and who knows you might find a new hobby on any of the occasion. Try it out and it will really help you to forget about your ex or relationship partner.

  • Try to love again: This is totally one of the reasons why the writer of this content insists you work on yourself. You can not love someone else when you have not fully made up your mind in letting go of the past memories,times and romance you had with your former relationship partner. No,there’s no way you can find love (even though you do without healing,you will be super worst and a mess in your new relationship). Though it hurts,but to totally move on and let go is to find love again. Inspiretips gave more reasons for you to recreate new memories and seasons. Throw yourself totally to someone new who will adore you and love you and with time trust me,you will forget your heart was broken before.

You might be wondering why are there no other way for you on this post. Truth be told,there’s actually no other way the writer could come up with except the first heading.

Now if you’ve read it this far you must be wondering why did the writer of this post focus fully on you “working on yourself”!

Lets take this irony or popular saying we all must have heard from our friends,family members,teachers etc

“THE SKY WILL BE YOUR LIMIT” nice saying and spirit uplifting speech right! But on a second thought,have you ever wondered why everyone has not actually made that saying a reality in their lives?

Now head back to the first heading on ways you can move on when heart broken,fix in “THEY DIDN’T before the first word and replace THEIR SELVES on the last word.

You might want to really do it in order to move on.

7 Tips on How You can have a Healthy Relationship

Published

Healthy Relationship

What’s a healthy relationship all about? As we humans get sick at times and decide to get some medication so is our relationship. When there is true love,affection,understanding and care among others in your relationship then its healthy.

As much as we all define or illustrate a healthy relationship in various ways,here are some important Tips for a healthy relationship.

You both Communicate

You can’t say your in a relationship and you do not communicate with your partner. Communication is a fundamental characteristic of a healthy relationship. You communicate with your partner often. You both share thoughts about how your day was,how work has been and other things that stirs up a conversation. Most people do have mood swing and they do not feel like talking to anyone but remember this your partner is just not anyone,your partner is your everything.

No matter how sad you are,always communicate with your partner and when you two engage in a discussion,you feeling sad fades away because you got your partner to share whatever situation your going through.

You show Affection to each other

A relationship is no child’s play and comes with a lot that most people seem to Ignore. Showing some Affection towards your partner is as important as air is to man. It do happens that most couples forget how they fell in love,how they both showed so much affection to each other. We are all in hard times and got a lot going on in our minds but slow down, ask yourself this question,when was the last time you told your partner how lucky you are to have him or her? When last did you share a romantic kiss with your partner? 70% of couples out there no longer find it romantic in calling their partners nice pet names (majority of women love pet names).

Being affectionate must not be you being around all the time but there’s lockdown so why don’t you show your partner or lover the real affection you have for them. Knowing how best your partner receives affection is good. You can hold your partner without him or her asking(we all need that special one to hold us tight),touch your partner gently let him or her feel those chills on their skin. With social distance going on,you can prepare your partner’s favorite meal and spice things up like a special night out. You knowing your partner moods when it comes to affection and doing it keeps you in a healthy relationship.

You Appreciate each other

When you both appreciate each other,the both of you are in a healthy relationship. Appreciation or gratitude really makes a healthy relationship. Appreciating the little gestures your partner makes no matter hoe big or little it can be will keep on boosting your bond to each other and increase your relationship span. The little “thank you” will keep your partner coming around.

You both Respect each other boundaries

No matter how you and your partner are so attached to each other,there will always be a boundary between you two. You both might not like or do totally the same thing and at such,respecting each other boundary is more than enough to keel your relationship healthy.

Following a post from Loveisrespect.org,When you respect each other it shows how much value you have for each other. Don’t let misunderstanding creep in between you two,be formal and plain about what you might not like. Knowing likes and dislikes and respecting each other is a good characteristic for a healthy relationship.

You Trust each other

No matter the countless conversations and affection if there’s no trust in your relationship then it is totally not healthy. When you two trust each other,is like giving having each other heart to take care of. When you trust each other,you both don’t feel alone. The both of you know you got each other to pour out whatever you got in your mind (except for a birthday or dinner surprise,keep it a secret). When the both of you trust each other,you are showing each other an unconditional love that neither your boss or friends don’t get to show.

You Support and Encourage each other

Your partner had a bad day at work or had problem with some tests at school,you are not just a partner for title sake,you are more than a best friend. Support and encourage your partner at all times,make your partner know he or she is not alone. When you both support and encourage each other,both of you are in a healthy relationship.

You Forgive each other

Misunderstandings and mistakes are prone to happen but handling it and forgiving each other is really important. Little mistakes like not understanding how you feel and ignores should be forgiven when your partner is remorseful. Do not take time to forgive your partner. Do not make him or her feel worse or bad when they make a mistake and keep apologizing. When the both of you forgive each other quickly,you both get to be happy and help make resolving issues between you two fast and better.
