14 Days Of Love

Day 3 of 14

On the third day of the 14 Days of Love I bring you relationship advice. I am no expert on love so if you guys have any advice you would love to add or something you would love to correct me on please do.

Never let life get in the way of your relationship.

♥ Always make time for one another. In a relationship it’s so important to be there for your significant other. Never let life get so busy that you don’t have time to spend time with one another. Go on a date, go to the gym together, cook together, binge watch your favorite tv show together, laugh together just simply spend time together.

Uplift and inspire one another

♥ My number one motto in a relationship is to always be that person who constantly pushes and encourages your significant other to go further. In a relationship you should feed each other’s dreams. You should always support each other no matter what. You should also strive to uplift one another. Never let your significant other feel less than they are. Treat them like the royalty that they are. Respect and cherish them. Always make them smile, always make them blush and annoy them daily with sweet compliments 

Always give sweet kisses

♥ This one is plain and simple. Just shower your significant other with sweet kisses. Use every opportunity available to just give them a kiss. As the saying goes a simple kiss brings so much joy.

Compromise

♥ In a relationship this is the most important thing. I am a firm believer that a relationship will not survive unless you try to meet your significant other half way and compromise. Being in a relationship means sometimes you will have to sacrifice a lot and if you are someone who always wants things your way then I’m sorry you are simply not ready for a relationship. However, remember to never lose yourself in a relationship. Never compromise or sacrifice to the point where,when you look in the mirror you don’t even recognize yourself. Remember there is healthy compromising and then there is also unhealthy. 

 In a relationship: 

You must always make time for yourself by having a life outside your relationship. 

Be honest with each other and always speak up. 

Never undermine each other.

Spend time getting to know one another.

Spend time experiencing each other’s hobbies 

Be spontaneous and random. 

Love on each other.

Have that thing in your relationship that sacred to only the two of you. 

Make sure you are both happy and never settle.

 

  • “You must always make time for yourself by having a life outside your relationship. ” Yes, yes and YES! I really dislike those couples who HAVE to be together all the time and don’t know how to be by themselves or without each other! It’s important to have some time apart <3

    • tell me about it aren’t they the most annoying couples!

  • I love these! I agree with every one of them and they are so crucial to making a relationship work. Saving these reminders 🙂

  • I’m loving this series! My fiance and I were talking a few weeks ago about the marriages we knew that lasted vs those that didn’t (after I read a book about happy marriages). Almost everything you list above was mentioned both in that book and in our convo, and I couldn’t agree more with what you’ve posted here. Looking forward to seeing what you have to share with us for the next few days!

  • It’s so fun to be romantic and sweet to each other. I think it’s important to spend time doing each other’s hobbies too.

  • Fiona Naughton

    I’m loving the 14 days of love idea. These are great things to remember when it comes to love. Life, especially my other half’s job always gets in the way of our time together but we try and not let it get us down.

  • These are such great tips and reminders for all of us i think sometimes we forget and let life get in the way of our relationship and this year i am working on it

  • Lisa @bitesforbabies

    What a great post! These tips are so simple yet effective if we actually see them through! It’s nice to have reminders every now and again so we can stop and rethink our attitude and/or actions towards our loved ones!

  • Manu Kalia

    I agree 100% A sweet kisses always makes my day complete. I can’t wait for the next post.

  • This is great advice! All of it is true. My husband and I have been together for 9 years and we are coming up on our 8th anniversary. We always make sure we hear the other person out. That’s how we get through most things.

  • celebbabylaundry

    It’s so important to have that support and inspiration from your loved one, I totally agreee with all of this!

  • Jennifer Juro

    These are all such great points. We have been guilty of letting the kids and life get in the way of us with putting those priorities first.

  • Compromise is really important in a relationship. It’s important that two people agree at some meeting points to make it last.

  • Lauren Marie Happel

    I really love this! And honesty is the best policy no matter what the issue is that you are needing to be open about.

  • Sam

    What lovely ideas for Valentines day and beyond! Thank you for sharing.

  • this is such great advice for all relationships. we are especially working on not letting life get in the way of working on our relationship and having fun with each other.

  • Jess Weaver

    I agree compromise is a big thing in a healthy relationship! Communication is another big one! Great post, thanks for sharing!

  • Lisa Rios

    These are great relationship advice indeed. I agree inspiring & motivating each other is an important aspect in love & in life. And yes you need to make sure you have healthy compromises as well. Thanks for inspiring.

  • Great advice. I especially like “Never let life get in the way,” “compromise,” and “have a life outside of your relationship.” People never want to hear these, but they are so vital.

  • Stephanie C.

    I love all of your tips! They are great reminders we often lose sight of in a relationship! It can be hard to not let life get in the way of things – great tips!
