You have probably seen pictures of couples on the internet doing various activities labeled as ‘relationship goals’, like holding hands at the Eiffel tower in Paris, soaking together in a hot tub in a high-end apartment, giving each other luxurious gifts such as cars and giant teddy bears, or fine dining at the most expensive restaurants. Any normal person would envy the way these people run their relationships in order to make their love grow deeper, but what about the less fortunate people? People who cannot afford to book a plane ticket to Bali or eat at a three-Michelin star restaurant? Are there any ‘relationship goals’ for these types of people? Yes!

Trust is one of the most important elements in a relationship and if you’re expecting any type of romantic commitment to last, you have to rely on its power to connect and bring two people together come what may.
Couples in a long term relationship have either mastered the art of Trust or are now slowly struggling to maintain it. This is because, just like love and respect, trust has to be earned over and over and should be able to withstand any storm that comes it’s way.
Regardless of where you are in this spectrum, this article will help you find ways to build and maintain trust in your relationship.
Girls aren’t the only ones who need to feel happy in a relationship. Of course, your boyfriend also needs that extraordinary joy you can give to him. Making your partner happy is vital in a relationship. In fact, that is one of the ingredients to making your relationship stronger and long-lasting. Now if you’re struggling …
Not everyone will always agree with your definition of a perfect love story but it doesn’t mean that you should easily give up on your relationship. Remember that although we can’t have everything we want in this life, we have every right to demand and fight for the things and people that make us genuinely happy.
So what would you do if you’ve finally found the one but life isn’t that willing to let you have them? Would you give up everything just to be with them? In other words, would you fight for the person you love even if it means saying goodbye to other people you’ve known your entire life? Are you willing to take every risk just to make your relationship work?
If you’re trapped in these equally frustrating and sometimes tragic circumstances, let this article be your refuge and your strength.
Here are the things that you can do to fight for your relationship.
The man was not created to be alone. It is natural for us to long for a partner to form a meaningful relationship with. However, since these are two people with different genetic markers, family background, culture, and a lot more, conflicts are sure to crop up time and time again! Definitely, this is not part of our #relationshipgoals!
When we are stressed, our body activates its fight or flight response as an act of self-preservation. We react by either getting aggressive or running away and building walls around our ego to protect ourselves. How do you react when you are under stress? Do you know what your attachment style is? How about your partner?
The problem with stress in relationships is it can be deep-seated. What stresses us now could be the tip of the iceberg. This sustained psychological stress is linked to depression, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. We sure do want to suffer from these lifestyle diseases!
Stress can also slowly eat up the foundation in your relationship. If you do not know how to use stress to your advantage, it may break down something which was once beautiful. Think about all the investment and sacrifices you have put into your relationship! Surely, you want to do everything in your power to keep things together!
I know that your heart is weary and your spirit is weak right now, but running away from our troubles is not a mature way of addressing our problems. We need to stay and work things out. This is the only way we can prove that we value our partner above all else. If you feel alone and on the verge of giving up, it is good to remind yourself that you are not alone in these challenging times. There are actually two people involved: you and your partner.
How invested you are in the relationship will be tested through your dedication to finding a sweet spot for both of you. Restoring harmony in a relationship is a bit challenging, but the process is full of self-discovery. It is an optimal growth period for both of you. Now, face your stressors head-on and find solutions. Here are 10 ways to deal with stress in your relationship and improve your love for each other.
One of the most important yet unspoken things that everybody in a relationship expects from their partners is for the communication lines to be open. They want their partners to be honest and truthful, with nothing – not even a tiny unimportant detail left behind. But while we commit to doing the same, we also tend to violate this cardinal rule unknowingly.
But how exactly should you deal with communication problems? Here are 8 baby steps that you can start with:
Unlike fairy tales, love stories in real life can be more complicated and most of the time can lead to tragic and heartbreaking endings. What is more hurtful is the fact that couples don’t live happily ever after not because of the absence of love but because of the odds that make it seemingly impossible to have faith in a happy ending.
For instance, have you ever felt like everyone and everything is against you and your love story? Have you ever cried helplessly, knowing that no matter how much you love each other, it will never work out? Have you convinced yourself that no matter hard you both try, reality will be there to shatter your dreams every time you try?
If you’re on the brink of giving up, let this article inspire you to hope and try once more. Here are some tips on how to make a relationship work against all odds.
Men think that treating their girlfriend like a princess is really hard when in fact, it’s not. Treating her right doesn’t mean you’ll lavish her with expensive clothes or jewelry. It means that you are giving her simple gifts or doing sweet gestures to show how you really appreciate and love her.

Have you experienced getting paranoid over your husband or boyfriend?
Do you sometimes feel the fear that he might find someone else – someone prettier, sexier, and better than you?
If your answer to either or both questions is yes, then don’t worry: you are not alone.

How to be a Good Girlfriend in 30 Ways
Here are 30 ways to be the best girlfriend to your boyfriend and enjoy a stronger, happier and lasting relationship with him.
It’s easy to be in a relationship, yet it’s hard to keep a relationship healthy.
Sometimes, love is not enough to keep a relationship healthy. I’ve heard a lot of people telling me about their unhealthy relationships yet they still love their partners and chose to stay in that situation. I know it is very likely to have feelings of love for someone even if you feel like you’re caged. According to Readers Digest, 57 percent of those in unhappy relationships still find their partner extremely attractive.
But you can’t just have a successful connection between your partner behind those three words and eight letters (I LOVE YOU). It is also important to recognize that “Love” is just one part of a whole because there are other ingredients to make it solid and healthy.
Now, if you’re in a relationship and wondering what it takes to have a healthy relationship, try these key ingredients to make it stronger, happier and long-lasting.
While some people are really private when it comes to their love life, there are others who just can’t help but tell the world about everything that’s going on with their relationship: from their recent romantic getaways, screenshots of the last text messages they’ve sent to each other, photos of their sweet and thoughtful anniversary presents, to the long and often grand status updates declaring their promises of eternal love for their partner, etc.
There’s nothing wrong with openly expressing your love for someone and many can agree that it’s such a sweet and romantic gesture to find your name or your photo on the Facebook newsfeed paired with the most thoughtful and sincerest words that anyone has ever written just to impress you.
However, happy couples don’t really need all the attention that most Facebook love birds crave. In fact, people in a strong and healthy relationship do things differently online and pretty much exert all their sincere and genuine efforts privately offline, away from the public eye.
To fully understand what we’re trying to say here, let’s first take a look at some of the things that truly happy couples don’t do on Facebook.
All relationships start from within you. It takes a part of you to be able to connect with someone other than yourself. You need to be emotionally stable to form a relationship. So my question is, are you emotionally ready? Do you think if someone sweeps you off your feet right now, you are ready to get to know the other person?
Take a deep breath. Find your inner self and reassess it. Ask yourself if you have these signs or traits of someone who is ready to be in a relationship.
Being a good boyfriend is not easy. I learned the hard way through trial and error. However, I realized that there are steps that you can take to become a better man for your loved one.
What is a Good Boyfriend?
A good boyfriend is someone who cares and loves his loved one. He’s the guy that will always be there for her, even when times are tough. Nobody will know a woman better than her boyfriend. He’ll be there when she’s sad and when she needs someone to get things off her chest. He’ll always make sure that he’s the one that makes her smile.
But he may not be the perfect man- or the perfect boyfriend, for that matter. A good man will still have room to learn and grow.
Signs of a Quality Man
1. Honest, Loyal, Faithful
You don’t want to be with someone who lies to you all the time or constantly omits things that will make you upset or mad. A quality boyfriend is also honest with himself; he’ll know when to say no and when to walk away from something that would hurt him in the end.
A quality man won’t play games with the people that are close to him. He values honesty above all else; without it, a relationship will never work out for the best.
A good man knows what he wants in life, no matter how big or small it may be. He knows what his limits are, but he isn’t afraid of taking risks if needed. He’s ready for commitment and doesn’t mind taking on responsibilities most people would avoid, like the plague. By being decisive, a man shows everyone else around him that he’s serious about his goals and what he wants in life.
A confident man knows himself inside and out. He loves how he lives his life and doesn’t care what other people have to say about him or what they’d like him to be. A confident man is comfortable with himself; he knows that everything will be okay in the end, no matter how bad things may get.
You don’t want a boyfriend who’s just there for appearances. You want someone who puts effort into showing you that he cares for you and wants you by his side at all times. A passionate man isn’t afraid of doing something fun together with his loved one- nor is he scared of trying something new if it means making her happy.
A quality boyfriend will forgive his girlfriend whenever she makes mistakes. It shows maturity when he can let things go after making sure it won’t happen again and learning from past experiences together as a couple.
A quality man has his own opinions but always accepts other people’s beliefs without forcing them on others. He’ll keep an open mind should anyone have something to say that he may not necessarily agree with, but he keeps an open mind at all times about the subject in question.
You need this type of attitude if you are ever to go where life takes you. It’s a quality that will help you grow as a person and make your relationship better than it could be otherwise.
What Makes You a Keeper for your Girlfriend?
1. She is your first priority.
No matter what happens, you will always be there for her and make sure that she knows just how important she is to you.
Your girlfriend should be number one in your life. You make sure she is happy and treat her as though you want to keep her for the rest of your life.
2. You are always honest about everything When it comes down to it.
You never lie, omit or hide anything. The only way for your relationship to be healthy is if you’re completely honest with each other at all times. Don’t be afraid of telling her what’s on your mind-she’ll love that a guy likes you can be himself no matter how hard things get in life and around the two of you.
3. You always try to keep your word.
One of the best things you can do for a girl is to keep your word. If you say something, make sure you get it done; otherwise, she’ll lose confidence in you as a person and fall out of love with you eventually.
4. You give her space.
Girls need space from time to time. You don’t want to smother her into thinking that every moment needs to be spent with you by her side. Give her some breathing room from time to time and respect what she does.
5. You’re always there for her no matter what happens—good or bad.
Especially when she’s having a bad day, and you don’t want to leave her side. When a girl feels that someone has her back, it shows how much you love her and respect the relationship you have together. You never want to be far away from each other, even when things get rough.
6. You make her feel safe.
She shouldn’t have to worry about losing you. Even when you both go through hard times, she should never worry about getting hurt because your relationship is solid. You’re there to show her that no one else can be trusted as much as you can.
30 Ways to Be a Better Boyfriend
I’m going to share with you 30 of my own tips on what you can do to be a better boyfriend:
1. Love her through actions.
Walk your talk. Avoid lies and broken promises because they will certainly break your girlfriend’s heart. Instead, if you want to be the best boyfriend for your girl, be a man of action and give her pure confidence.
2. Work your love harder.
Do you miss her? Why not make your best effort to be with her? Being together with your girlfriend is better than telling her you to miss her through texts, Facebook messages, and other virtual channels.
If you want to make your relationship stronger, healthier and happier, don’t just wish for your guy to be a better man but also work yourself to be a better girl. Be the best girlfriend you can ever be to your boyfriend by following these tips:
1. Appreciate him.
What a man deeply desires is the feeling of being appreciated and acknowledged for what he provides. He wants to feel that his efforts become useful, meaningful and successful. When you see and appreciate your guy’s effort even in his most simple ways, it’ll make him feel like the ultimate winner and he will do anything to keep you happy. Try to see his intentions behind an action and appreciate that.
If you want to be truly happy in a relationship, read the following inspiring tips:
1. Love your partner as you love yourself.
To be happy in a relationship, learn how to happily love yourself so you can also learn how to happily love your significant other. If you can’t love yourself, how can you love your partner? So love your partner as you love yourself and make him/her happy as you make yourself happy.
2. Sacrifice more material things to gain more spiritual qualities.
Be selfless. Selflessness doesn’t mean totally destroying yourself to save others. It means sacrificing your physical or material self to enrich your spirituality. So learn how to give up some money, time, space and even physical energy in exchange for love, kindness, peacefulness and true happiness.
One of the hardest things about moving on from a breakup is accepting that the person who used to be the center of your world does not want to be part of your life anymore. The difficult part is when you are left hanging because you are not sure whether to wait or not. However, …
There are many reasons why couples break up and most of these can be prevented if only both parties have the willingness to see and understand the things that are really causing the problems in the first place. Some signs can be obvious, directly and instantly launching their attacks but others come in the form of small bits of negativities that can accumulate over time until it can gather enough strength to break even the strongest of bonds.

First of all, a relationship can be vulnerable to break up when:
How sure are you that what you feel for your special someone right now is true love? Is it just because you feel like the world stands still whenever s/he passes by? Or is it because you cannot get him/her out of your head?
Sometimes, what we think to be love is actually infatuation. It is too much admiration for someone that causes you poor judgments and pre-occupation. You feel so much attraction to the point that you become head over heels for that person. It is usually mistaken for love—but it is actually way different.
So, how do you know if what you feel is love or infatuation? Scroll down and read these 12 differences:
How do you know if enough is enough? When do you know it is time to end a relationship? These are probably the questions that bother you right now.

Ending your relationship without wise judgment might cause you to regret it in the future. To avoid this, here are 12 questions that you better ask yourself before jumping into a decision:
When we talk about toxic relationships, we often conclude that anyone who is in this kind of unhealthy connection should pack their bags, leave and never look back.

However, we should address one important question: are there really effective ways to detoxify yourself from a toxic relationship? Well, we have here some practical ways, tips, and pieces of advice that will help you find a sweet and genuine antidote to the poisons of an almost failing connection.
Life’s journey becomes more exciting, fun, and fulfilling when you’ve finally found the right one. For most girls, everything in life seems better when they can finally share it with someone they love: their prince charming, their knight in shining armor, the ideal boyfriend.

Imagine finding the person meant for you but eventually losing them because you were unaware of how much you’ve been hurting them.
