A girl and a boy first become get to know each other, and then after some time their friendship turns into a love relationship, this is a healthy and a normal procedure of getting into a long-term relationship. However, many of you must be the ones who believe in love at first sight and straightaway you start your relationship as lovers. Yet another sect of young boys and girls is the one that is bewildered and just cannot make out as to what sort of relation they are in, whether it is a casual relation or they are into serious dating.

 couple conflict

Sometimes this bewilderment turns into frustration for many couples going through this phase. To know the status of a relationship is very important because much of the behavior depends on it. So, if you are also confused about your relation, continue reading and get the hang of following signs that will help you get rid of the bewilderment associated with your relation.

 talking couple_1 (1)

You engage in long talks every day

If you realize that, you talk to a girl or a boy on a regular basis and for longer intervals in comparison to other friends of yours then it is a pretty good sign that indicates you are probably in love with him and your relation with him is not just a casual relationship. We do not waste our time talking to ones for whom we do not care, so if you are talking to someone a lot or vice versa, surely love is in the air.

Pet Names

Giving pet names to each other by lovers is a very sweet gesture, as those pet names come from their heart for each other. If the guy calls you baby, my princess then probably his relation with you is much more than a simple friendship. Similarly, a girl calling her guy honey, and snuggle-bunny then again it is a sign that she wants to move her relation with you into a love zone from casual hanging out relation.

Happy dates

They do not immediately makes a move

This sign goes for the ones whose relation starts from intimacy. The first thing few boys and girls do is to get intimate and then move on with their respective lives. But if a guy does not make a move and sticks to you after your first date and shows interest in talking to you and to hang around with you, it is a good sign that the guy is in love with you.

More importance to quality time than sex

Majority of the casual relationships involve more emphasis on sex. They are more like friends with benefits. On the other hand, you have love relationship in which both give more importance to spending quality time together rather than just making out and moving on.

 Meet the Parents

Introduce you to their family

Well, you do not get to see this sign in every relation but majority of serious relations have this sign in them. The girl and the guy are keen to make each other meet their family members. If the guy takes you home especially to make his parents meet you then this is a pretty good sign that the guy is taking you more seriously rather than casually, and is not casually hanging around with you. It goes for the girl also.

Secret Sharing

If the guy talks his heart out to you, and you also feel like sharing your darkest secrets with him then this reveals a lot about your relationship. Such behavior means you are not just casually hanging out but you certainly have a solid connection.

Be it any relation you are in, friendship, girlfriend-boyfriend, or a husband-wife relationship, when it starts it is loaded with passion but with time, passion fades away. Although this does not happen in every single relation but majority of relationships experience this pattern, which is quite painful.

Embracing love

Passionate love is a passing feeling for many relationships, as in passionate love is only there for the initial years and then it becomes calmer. Even some studies also show that the passion dies in the first few years of married life of many couples. However, some studies also show you can have a passionate relation forever. I am sure many of you would love to know the secret of keeping passion alive in your respective relations. Following are some tips that you can follow in order to make your long tern relationship passionate forever.

happy couple

Spend more time together

Couples should try to spend as much time as they can together. They should look for ways, which give them opportunities to be together. It can be a shopping day out, and plan short trips wherein just two of you get ample time together.

 Plan Date nights

Plan Date nights

One of the best ways to bring back the passion into your relation is to plan mysterious date nights with your partner. No matter how tied up you are with all those family and work responsibilities, you have to keep at least one night per week booked for just two of you. Getting ready for that night date and planning everything as you used to do in the initial years of your relationship is a perfect way to restore a great relationship.

great relationship

Communicate

Communication is of paramount importance for couples to maintain a healthy relationship with each other. Lack of communication is one of the biggest reasons that eventually loose passion in a relation. A good level of communication brings two people in a relation much closer and it also frank talks eliminate misunderstandings as well, which otherwise can make a couple split.

You must communicate all the good things you like about them and their weaknesses so that they can improve them. Similarly, you should also listen to all the opinions and advices of your partner and should try to work on them. This great healing process will certainly reintroduce that lost passion into your relationship.

passionate love

Get naughty and surprise each other

A good combination of love and sex is a crucial part of a happy healthy relationship. So do not ignore this aspect and make sure you take out enough time to get intimate with your partner and rekindle those wild old days. Try to bring back that naughty, raunchy side of you and surprise your partner. Send some dirty texts or talk to him in a way that turns him on.

beautiful woman (1)

Get fit and beauty conscious

Many couples, after getting into a long-term relationship or after getting married, kind of start ignoring their appearance and gain weight; or they stop dressing up because they feel they have gotten their love of life so why to care about all this anymore. However, this thinking is wrong and you need to change this perception of yours. Whether you are finding love or you have already gotten, you need to look good and be in shape all the time.

Even after many years of togetherness, also you need to win attention and appreciation of your beloved. No one hates having a partner who looks stunning and fit, just as they used to look at the very start of a relation.

Love relationships are one of the most precious happenings in our lives and they give us ultimate happiness provided we are in a good relationship. There is no fixed definition for a good relationship but it is a situation, wherein both the partners have immense love, trust, and respect for each other. Partners love spending great deal of time with each other and they are best friends.

couple conflict

While there are some couples for whom their relationship does not turn out to be as happy as the one above. Initial minor conflicts turn into big fights with time and a happy relationship becomes a sad and a scary relationship. Love turns into repentance and guilt. Therefore, couples need to have a good understanding of signs that predict whether they are in a right relationship or not, so that they can quit at right moment. If you do not have, this understanding then go through these following mentioned signs, which are a vital part of a healthy, good relationship.

 right relatioship (2)

Mutual Respect

One of the easiest ways to find the status of a relationship is to consider the respect aspect in it. If there is a mutual respect proportion between a couple then surely, their relation is good and there are high chances for their relationship to last longer or forever. If your partner is disrespectful, does not respect your self esteem then you should never linger on your relationship any further. Similarly, if you cannot respect your partner, it is a sign that your relationship is not a healthy one.

 couple cnversation

Curiosity to meet each other

A quite prominent sign of a good relationship is the excitement and the curiosity that partners experience to meet other. At the end of one date, you start looking forward to another date because you so much love spending time with each other. In contrast to this, there are relationships in which one of the partners starts taking dates as a liability; it is a sign of a bad relationship.

 couple at home discussing

None expects perfection

Not to expect perfection out of your partner is a very important sign of being in a good relationship. Nobody is perfect, and this is something that both the partners must clearly understand. For a relation to work out well the partners need not to be perfectionists but their behavior and personality should suit each other. Instead of expecting your partner to do everything perfectly, you should learn to appreciate whatever they do no matter how imperfectly.

relationship

Perfect blend of freedom and teamwork

Freedom and teamwork is essential to maintain a healthy relationship. Get this thing very straight that you cannot get love and loyalty forcibly. Insecure partners do not give their partner enough of persona space, which brings in a kind of negativity and hatred in a relationship. Whereas, healthy relationships have profound freedom and the partners do not feel trapped.Likewise, teamwork is another feature of a good relationship, as relation is a matter of two people and not just one.

couple romance

Build each other up and not tear down

Support is the most vital feature required to make a relationship healthy and good. Both the partners must be supportive towards each other. They look into each other’s weaknesses and try to ward them off by their support. Likewise, they try to strengthen the good points in each other, in other words, they try to build up each other and never tear each other down. If your partner always keeps cribbing regarding your weaknesses and never tries to help you come over them, then it is prudent to leave them right away.

Sex is something that everybody enjoys, but people shirk talking about it. Sometimes partners fail to realize that their mutual talks on sex are of vital importance to keep alive the flame of love and romance in their lives. To make an intimate relation more special, equal participation of the partners is required. However, to play the equal roles a man should know his beloved’s requirements and the woman should know how to satisfy her man to the fullest because the sex needs of a woman are different from that of a man.

Couple kissing and drinking on the bed in bedroom

It is of paramount importance that a couple indulges in “sex-talks” with each other so that the sexual desires are communicated well to each other. Apart from the mutual sex talks, following are some tips that can help couples to make their love life even more interesting and lusty:

Fantasies can do wonders

Our brain is the most powerful sex organ that requires some wild fantasies for an arousal. Sharing sexual fantasies with your partner can increase the excitement in your relationship like never before. Fantasies reignite the lost or the lazy sexual attitude of yours. They make you take up new sexual habits and to try out new things, eventually keeping the sex very much alive in your relationship.

dirty talking couple

Naughty, dirty talk

Dirty talk, especially during sex are so powerful that they bring in longevity and give an added sexual pleasure. When partners talk about their individual sexual interests, like what they like to do and in what way, it certainly adds to the pleasure. Ensure that you talk before and after you make out, and find out how satisfied your partner is. Many people never care to talk to each other after they spend those intimate moments together, which is very wrong, as in how do you know that your partner is satisfied or not. So, talk, talk, and talk.

love making in storage room

Experiment with the places where you do the lovemaking

To make your sex life interesting, leave your bed and get the hang of some new places to make love. How about the couch or the sofa lying in your drawing room. The other ideas include the car parked in your garage or your bathroom. The more unconventional the place, the more pleasure it gives.

Prolong your sex experience

Prolonged sex experience makes the lovemaking more interesting and exciting. The best way to prolong the experience is to adopt a start-stop approach while having sex. This method calls for a masturbation till the point of ejaculation and then to stop until the urge to ejaculate passes. Repeat this procedure for as long as you both want your sex experience to prolong.

enjoying in bed

Be open and try new things

Monotony is the biggest enemy of a sexual desire in partners. If every day you tend to indulge in the same old ways of having sex, there is quite a possibility that boredom will soon set in. Therefore, to save your love life from the clutches of boredom, ensure that you try out new things every other day, as in pleasing scents, subdued colors, soft lighting, background music, sexy clothes, and various other techniques that can make you crazy.

Be understanding

It is better to have no sex rather than having a forced sex. It is but natural that at times there is not even a least desire for sex in one partner, while the other has. In such circumstances, both the partners must show true understanding and absolute respect for each other’s feelings. Forced sex is not at all good for a healthy love life.

Today’s generation is called the hookup generation because majority of youngsters like to have friends with benefits and find it a burden and boring to be in love with a single partner for a long time. Hook up culture is the lost art of dating, and it consists of casual dates, one-night stands, and random sexual relationships. Hook up culture mainly started in America among adolescents in colleges, but today one can see this trend in almost all the countries.

Hook up generation

This trend has left no space for love in the hearts of many youngsters or in some, it does exist but nothing like the olden times when people were loyal, caring and honest. Many instances of fearless lovers in history reveal that some even sacrificed their lives for each other. Love has various meanings. Ancient Greeks defined love in four forms, family love, friendship, romance and self-love. Love is a bond that keeps family, lovers, friends united. However, majority of the generation today does not share same interests and believes in hook up relationships. Let us look at some side effects of hook up culture on our generation and us.

Hook up generation  (2)

Commitment issues

There are no commitments made in such a relationship. You are free to enter and exit here. It is like having open doors for you to walk in and walk out. You are not bound for anything. This may sound great but mostly leaves us in a depressing state of mind. Mostly, over a period one person in a relationship becomes attached (emotionally and physically) too. You will now start demanding for commitment and promises from your partner. This will lead you to nowhere in the end as you only accepted the terms of this relationship in the beginning.

Hook up generation  (5)

Less validity

These relationships have no or less validity as compared to dating. They are bound to break anytime, as we call it “no strings attached”. At times, you do not even realize when you start and end your relationship. Many of us feel it is cool and great to not to be bothered and concerned so much, but later on all it leaves us with is the frustration and anguish.

Hook up generation  (3)

Feeling lonely

With computers and internet, life has become fast and hooking up sitting at home is just a click away. We do not even realize how fast we change our relationship status. Many people surround us all the time but still we get that feeling of loneliness. That is why it is important to have couple of good friends in life; at least you can have a bond with them. You will have a nice emotional connection with them and can rely on them in times of need.

The young generation who believes more than in hook up relations than love, should once get their facts right about love. Following are some great things about love that the young generation must learn about:

Hook up generation  (1)

Strong bond

Love is a strong bond between two people. It strengthens you as an individual and as a couple or a group. It is like having a strong wall behind you to protect you from falling.

Man carrying woman on beach

Selfless and caring

Love teaches you to be selfless and think of your loved ones before you think about yourself. You care for your loved ones and cannot see them in any trouble and you will go to any extent to help them.

Love is to sacrifice

Sacrifice means to give up something valuable or very dear for the sake of your loved ones. People have made big sacrifices even they sacrificed their lives for love.

Whether we can be friends with our ex or not is one topic that is very complicated, as people have widely differing viewpoints. Some say that it is next to impossible to be friends with someone with whom you shared an intimate connection in the past. However, if you look at some examples from, some couples split but maintained a lovely friendship for a lifetime, which makes us believe that staying friends after a breakup is not an impossible task. All it requires are certain changes in your attitude and behavior towards your ex, and you are all set to be good friends forever. Following are some tips that you should consider if you are planning to be friends post breakup:

 breakup in relationship

Take time apart after you breakup

Breakups are bad, and sometimes so powerful that during the immediate period that follows a breakup, a person feels so detached. Some get the feeling that they have lost the purpose and direction of their life. In case the partners have any plans to be friends after their breakup, they need to give each other ample time to come back to normal.

Feelings do not change overnight. You cannot just start behaving like a friend to your beloved like the very next day of your breakup. Human mind is not like the computer memory that once presses the erase button and everything is gone. It takes time, depending upon the intensity of your relationship, as to when and how your mind allows you to be friends with someone you dearly loved at one point of time in your life.

Give yourself time and indulge yourself in things that you love to do, the activities that keep you happy and excited. Meet new people, visit new places and do whatever your heart tells you to do. Then come back to the decision of being friends with your ex, and follow your heart.

flame of romance

Do not have sex with your ex

You can be a good friend to your ex after a certain period of your breakup. But be ready for changes, as things will just not be like they were in the past when you were lovers, and one of the biggest difference is in intimacy. You cannot get intimate to your ex and you should not, as intimacy is a thin line between friendship and a romantic relationship. If you cross that line, then you cannot be friends, and it affects the opportunities to explore other potential relationships.

indulged in relationship

Talk to your ex about your recent dating interests

This true test shows whether you are prepared to be friends after a breakup or not. Talk to your ex about your recent crushes and the ones whom you took out on a date with you. If your ex shows keen interest in your stories and do not show any signs of jealousy, that means you both can be friends and feel free to share your new found fantasies. However, if your ex feels uncomfortable and avoids listening to the stories of your budding romance, this means that you are not at a stage to become good friends after your breakup.

talking couple_1 (1)

Be realistic and honest

Depending from situation to situation, some exes continue to be very good friends after their breakup, while some just cannot. It is next to impossible for some couple to stay in touch after a breakup because they just cannot tolerate their ex to be someone else’s present in front of their eyes, so they chose the – out of sight out of mind option. There are also some for whom staying friends after a breakup is quite easy. Some have dirty intentions, as they just want to be with their ex for the sexual pleasure and nothing else.

Every relationship goes through vicissitudes, the good times and not-so-good times. Even if a relationship seems to be all-good initially, after a few years it tends to hit rough patches due to numerous reasons. Well, if you follow the following tips, there is quite a possibility that your relationship would not hit the rough patches:

great relationship  (2)

Take out time to spend together

After marriage, a whole mountain of responsibilities falls upon us, especially on females. From taking care of kids and other family members, household chores, to run the family business, partners hardly get time to spend in each other’s company. There is no time to connect and this is the life’s reality.

Mere being in a relationship does not bring that connectivity between partners; they actually need to spend a great deal of time together and that is what makes them connect and make the relationship blissful. A couple can do the errands together, workout together, can take walks, and simply sit back and talk together.

You cannot wait for a day wherein you will get a good deal of time to spend together, in fact both the partners need to find out those special moments everyday and keep their connection alive. In case miles of distance separates both the partners, they can always make the use of modern technology like video chats that make people feel quite near to their loved ones.

Take out time for yourself

To spend time with yourself is as important as it is to spend with your partner. Personal time is the food for the happiness and health of our souls. If you will take care of your needs well then only you will be able to take care of your partner and kids. In your personal time, do things that give you immense joy, be it meditation, dancing, singing, yoga, writing, cooking, or just relaxing. The happier, stronger, and healthier you feel, the same feelings you can transfer to your partner, kids and other family members as well.

Be a team

A relationship takes two individuals to make it wherein both individuals have their own strengths and weaknesses. One partner does something easily whereas the other struggles to do it, and vice versa. The best way to come over weaknesses in a relationship is to bond your strength with your partners, as it helps both partners to emerge as extremely powerful human beings.

Let your partner take up the job you are weak at, and you take the one that is his weakness, work as true teammates. Both the partners should have a faith that they have their partner to catch them whenever they fall. If you follow this mantra in your relationship, nothing can challenge your relation.

Be each other’s best friend

Before being lovers, partners ought to be each other’s best friends. There should be openness, honesty, vulnerability, true love, and unconditional appreciation of the good and bad in a relationship. This best friend relationship enables partners to stay loyal and happy in a relationship with their beloved for lifetime.

In many relationships, not after a very long time of their union, the wife starts cribbing and the husband becomes lazy, and both the partners experience fierce frustrations owing to each other’s imperfections. However, the best way to deal with this tough situation is to be like best friends.

Whenever you are about to blow out on your partner because of some imperfection, like the wet towel left on bed or the shoes lying in the drawing room, think once as to how would you address your best friend in such a situation, and then behave accordingly. When your husband tells you that you do not look good in that dress, no doubt it hurts but try to reply, as you would do to your friend. In addition, do not forget to listen to each other’s grievances just as you do with your best friend.

Women making more money raise many questions in your head, especially when you are dating one. If you think that ways, it may lead to low self-esteem, confidence, and you may become insecure too. A man is not to blame because traditionally men were the breadwinners and women were the homemakers. With changing time, even the trends have changed.

In today’s world, many people call it an old-fashioned thought and do not hesitate to date women who make more money and women do not find any trouble to settle with a man who earns less than they do. However, some men even today find it hard to date a woman earning more than them. If you also belong to this segment then get the hang of the following ways that will help you to maintain a healthy relationship with her without hurting your ego.

Honesty is the best policy

It is true that honesty is certainly the best policy, especially in love relationships. Always be honest about what you feel, about your insecurities with your partner. Hiding one thing leads to hiding many. Best way to survive a relationship is being truthful. Being vocal about your thoughts keeps you light headed and calm. On the other hand, keeping feelings inside eventually leads to an outburst that ruins a relationship. So, speak out whatever you feel.

conflict in couple

Don’t take her for granted

Do not take her for granted just because she earns more. Do not assume that she will always pay the bill at a restaurant. Do not forget she is a woman and she deserves to be pampered. Actually, she very well knows that she earns more and can take care of the bill, but if this happens repeatedly, she may feel that you are taking advantage of her. By dividing the bill, or offering to pay at times is just a small gesture you make which keeps your relationship strong and going.

committed couple

Be a Man

Although you are dating a woman who earns more than you do but before money comes in, it is a man and a woman who comes into a relationship. A man should always be a man, do not ever try to become a baby or a burden in a relationship. Plan your dates or trips, give your inputs, take decisions, taking charge of the situation. You have to make her realize your importance in her life.

Surprises and gifts

Never hesitate to shower gifts on your woman you love even if you feel that you cannot gift her something big. Never forget that gifts that you give with love cannot be evaluated on the grounds of money. A woman who loves you will never bother about the size and the price of the gift. Women are easy to please and are happy if you only give those flowers and some chocolates. Surprises bring happiness and joy in a relationship. What if she is earning more, you can use your innovative ideas to plan surprise parties or dates. Women love surprises, not the price you spend on them.

happy couple

Never bring Ego in between

Men often have high/big ego problems. Although, it would be wrong to say that you would be able to stifle it, but keep it at a level that never interferes with your relationship and does not ruin it. Never take your woman wrong when she offers you a help, it is just her loving and caring attitude that does not allow her to see you struggle much. Do not overreact and insult her. Trust each other.

Break ups happen in relationships, sometimes for good and sometimes for bad. Each partner takes a certain amount of time depending on his or her nature to get over a breakup. However, sometimes a couple splits but they continue being friends with each other. Again, this “just friends” status sometimes does good to the partners and sometimes it worsens the situation further. Following are some points that show being friends after a breakup is not a good option.

breakup

Hope misguides you

For a couple who decides to remain friends after a breakup is just a hope that probably things will patch up and they can again be back as a happy couple, but sadly, this hope is just a misconception and it worsens the situation. This hope does not let you really move on and the things between you and your partner do not mend. This is because no matter how hard you try, you cannot be friends to the one who was your beloved, say almost a month ago. The emotions do not change like this, and calling your girlfriend just a friend is nothing but a way to console yourself. Give yourself time and think carefully that is it actually possible to be friends with your girlfriend or boyfriend.

alone but happy

It doesn’t let you move on

Choosing to stay friends even after a breakup does not make things any better for you, in fact you remain stuck at the spot in your love life, so why to break up at first place when the things and circumstances are going to be the same for you even after a breakup. If you choose to be friends then you will not be able to lookout for new opportunities and move on in life. Therefore, it is better to face some period of loneliness and move on in life.

couple breakup_3

It will not make you feel less lonely

One reason that makes you decide to be friends with your partner after a breakup is that you fear loneliness, but trust me, being friend to your partner will not make you feel a less loner. Being friends to someone who was your beloved is even more painful and depressing, so might as well face that loneliness and sadness of a breakup and come out as a much strong person and look for better opportunities outside.

couple respect

It disrupts your peace of mind

Being a friend to your ex is easier said than done. You can easily say that your ex is just your friend but what about the feelings and emotions. How will you control them? This creates too much of awkwardness between both the exes. A breakup changes everything, you cannot be as affectionate and caring towards each other as you used to be before break up, so every time you confront your ex the awkwardness will overpower you, eventually disturbing your peace of mind. For the sake of peace of your mind, it is better to let go of your ex.

lovebirds

Sometimes it is better to let go than to hang on

Out of weakness and fear to confront the sad feelings and the lonely times post breakup, we tend to hang on to a relation that is actually not worth to hang, and is better to let go of it. We should learn that letting go is a part of life that makes our lives better. On the other hand, if we decide to hang on to things that hurt us, it is sure that they will hurt in future as well.

Sometimes we land up in situations that are not quite easy to deal with, as the one in which one of the partner’s in a relationship becomes troubled with depression. It becomes tough for the partner to adjust with the one who is depressed and it takes a great deal of effort to make things work. A lot of personal skill and knowledge is required to make things better for oneself and for the person suffering from depression. Following are some tips that will certainly be of great help for people who are dealing with a partner who is in depression:

caring partners

Educate Yourself

The first step towards making your relationship work well with your partner who is depressed, you need to educate yourself with everything about depression. Its symptoms, causes, treatment, you must be well versed with everything. All this knowledge will help you make things better for your partner and certainly for you as well.

supporting partner

Get Support

If someone you love and care about is depressed then it is pretty normal that you will feel frustrated, angry, and upset. It gives us pain to see our loved ones in a bad condition like that of a depression. No doubt, it is an extremely tough situation but you should not let all negative feelings overpower you, as you have to be strong enough to be capable to bring your partner out of the ditch of depression.

In case you feel that you cannot deal with this situation alone, then do not hesitate to take help from family members and friends. If the situation worsens, without any delay consult a counsellor.

caring partner

Take care of yourself as well

When we see our loved ones in pain, we start taking care of them whole-heartedly and stop worrying about ourselves. For instance, if one partner becomes depressed, the other starts doing everything to bring a partner out of depression and forget to care about themselves. This is a wrong practice. It is good to take good care of your partner but never forget to care for yourself.

partner in depression

Always be there for them

Insecurity can be a major cause of depression. Therefore, the best way you can help a person who is in depression is to make them feel that you are always by their side. Sit with them, talk to them, and be a very good listener to all the feelings and views they share. Offer them help, and assure them that you will always be with them, anytime, and anywhere they want.

Happy young couple having fun

Do not mind rather understand

When depression comes over, a person completely changes. They stop being fun loving, as they used to be at some point of time in their life. They become agitated at small things and say many things that can be hurtful.

Sometimes a depressed partner loses all interest in sex and likes to be left alone most of the time. This behaviour is annoying and hurting for the normal partner, but you should try not to take it in a bad way. It is important to understand that the partner is not doing this on purpose, but the depression is the reason behind their weird behaviour.

depression treatment

Treatment is of vital importance

Besides love and support, a depressed person requires good treatment. Many times, people with depression completely refuse to go to the psychiatrist, as they find it embarrassing and something to be ashamed of. One can compel such partner to seek a proper treatment by making them understand in a most lovable way. You can help your partner take medicines on time and to go for routine appointments with the doctor without any gap.
