Your Relationships: Keep Them Interesting and Exciting!
Great relationships are among life’s best gifts and should always be treated as such. Getting comfortable in your relationships does not mean you can stop making a consistent effort to improve communication and increase the enjoyment each of you gets out of the partnership. So make a commitment to shake things up, think beyond your daily routine and ruminate on ways to keep your connection interesting and exciting!
Why So Serious?
Laughter brings happiness and added perspective by giving you an opportunity not to take yourself, life or any given situation too seriously. Laughing with others creates some of the happiest moments between friends, family and mates. It releases endorphins, making you feel giddy and free. It also creates a special intimacy between two people, making you feel closer for having shared in the experience. So lighten up, laugh at each other and at the world as often as possible, and appreciate how carefree you can be with that special person.
You Get What You Give
All relationships take work. While this may be common knowledge, it is just as likely to be lost between two people who have become comfortable with one another. But maintenance is a requirement in every relationship. It means keeping in tune with the other person and putting forth the effort to keep up the intimacy and quality time between you two. It means being honestly interested in another person’s life and happiness and taking the extra time to check in on them, do something nice for them or even treat them to a special surprise.

Keep an Open Mind
Getting stuck in a relationship rut comes from falling into such a comfortable routine that everything you do ceases to be special and reduces your appreciation for sharing your life with your partner. It can be easy to resent and blame the other person for your feelings of boredom and dissatisfaction. The truth is, both partners are responsible for keeping things fresh, so you’re just as much to blame for not tapping into your own creativity and imagination in order to accomplish that! Being open means being willing to see things differently, and do things differently. It means being receptive to new experiences and actually following through to put them into action. So open yourself up to engaging in new behaviors with your partner and honestly listen to their need and let go of any fears that keep your heart closed to innovation!

I still love my husband John who died suddenly 4 1/2 yrs ago. I cannot let go and have no room in my heart for another. I feel no man can measure up to him. Although I certainly am very lonely and I know how better I would feel about life and about myself if I was to find someone who cared for me even with my health baggage. Anyone know how it feels to be out of touch with the world, no interest in what is out there? What do I do?
Sometimes you may be trying too hard to please the other person. Some people have problems that they do not feel comfortable sharing. And so constant prodding, joking or blaming just leads to resentment. Please people, try to listen some more. When your partner needs space, give it to your partner. Try to occupy your time by developing a hobby or joining a club. Be good to yourself so you can be happy. Happiness tends to be noticed and it serves its purpose to spread joy. Good luck!
When it comes to love, there is no any book of rules nor patterns. People act to what they feel inside. One might be a “mother theresa” type while the other is pure “hitler”. We just cannot predict what a person will behave but only hope that they behave to our expectations. Love is one thing so complicated, for even with reading many articles and listening to advice, my relationship has never resembled anything i’ve read.
I agree with you,,,,,after being together with my partner for over 23 yrs…My answer is “Do the unexpected” always!! something new —even if its a very small token or change on a daily activity will keep your special person feel like you are always thinking about them and that you are interested in making the feeling special…..and you ARE!!….
Thearth thank you for your kindness. You must have done this too, and I’m sure you’re correct. I will search the net. Thanks again. <3
Wonderful advice Alina!
Under the “Get What You Give” category I might also add, remember to keep asking your partner for what you want and need.
Your partner wants to please you! He or she may, from time to time need a little reminder of the things they do that make you happy.
They may appreciate a reminder that their love, affection, and attention is wanted and needed.
Love & Light!

YAH I FEEL THE SAME WAY AS MOST OF THE REPLIES I HAVE READ. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 17 YRS. N HE HAS HAD AT LEAST 4 AFFAIRS ON ME N NO MATTER WHAT I DO IT SEEMS HE TURNS THE TABLES ON ME N PUTS THE BLAME ON ME. I AM NOW NOT LIVING WITH HIM I LEFT HIM N HE WANTS ME BACK. LOL I AM VERY LONELY BUT HE IS STILL LIVING A SINGLE LIFE N HASNT CHANGED AT ALL.
In cases where important things are not reciprocated and we feel lied to, cheated, and taken for granted, keep in mind these things are really not about “us”. I tell my callers all the time that you can be your best self to someone or your worst self, but the other person acts and behaves independently of that. If this were not true, there would be an absolute in relationships, and there isn’t. Yes, someone SHOULD treat us as we treat them, but it’s not a given. We tend to take things personally when people “do” things to us. However, this is simply a perception. We can choose whether or not to carry the burden of someone else’s actions and let them make us miserable. It’s a trade off, but in the end, what is gained? The challenge is that we have to learn not to make everything about us, and to make the tough decisions. If we do nothing different, the dynamic of the relationship will stay the same. It comes down to loving yourself enough to draw healthy boundaries when it comes to the power we give to others in controlling our feelings, self worth and more. Either we accept that person as they are and can find peace with their choices and actions, or we don’t. Feelings and thoughts are at odds here, which creates a negative aura around the situation and people involved. It’s when we don’t accept another person, or ourselves in truth, that we become unhappy. It’s imperative as a human and spiritual being to put self love and acceptance at the top of our relationship list. *Food for Thought: Many of us seek an ideal relationship with another, yet are unable to cultivate or maintain a healthy relationship with ourselves. Our relationships with others are a reflection of the relationship we have with ourselves.
Empathy, always is key. Problems arise when one or both increasingly, demand the other gives. Beautiful relationships are give and take and acceptance.
If this article doesn’t work for you… Reevaluate and be honest with yourself
whatever doesn’t seem to work for me
Dear Mary: waiting for the other foot to drop, usually means your involved, with a controlling, Narcissistic, person… or other personality disorder, and no, there is usually no laughter . Lots of info on the internet. Stay safe.
So why is it that when you care for someone and love them as well as worry for them treat them good and all you get back in return are lies lies and nothing but lies. I don’t know about that saying YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE. I gaved this guy so much love and look I got got back LIES
Whatever. Doesn’t seem to work for me. Can’t hope for the best with anyone because I’m waiting for the shoe to drop and can’t seem to pull out of this rut. And I don’t even know where to start. Thanks anyway.
Wise advice !
Nice article, Alina, especially liked the part on laughter.
