We all know that all relationships are like a rollercoaster ride. When things are good, they are very good. When things are bad, they are really bad. Thus, what is required of both the members in a relationship, is to develop a few norms for themselves to abide them in order to have the good times in their relationships.
Just listen to your partner without offering advice.
Let us first see the rules abided by the MEN to keep their relationship strong.
Trust and respect her.
Treat her as an equal partner in your relationship.
Stay and support her when she gets emotional. She is looking for understanding, not solutions.
Continue your courtship even after she`s committed to you. Continue to create romance in your relationship.
Do little things on a regular basis. The small things are worth just as much as the big ones.
Honour any agreements you have made with her.
Encourage her goals and direction.
Find out what your partner would like to do and then do it with her.
Say, "I`m sorry" when you`ve done something you regret or that was hurtful to your partner, whether intentionally or unintentionally.
Go to bed angry with your partner.
Try to offer advice or solutions when your partner just needs you to listen to her without comment.
Pretend to listen to her when you really are not listening.
Shut your partner out when you need to sort things out in your head. Just explain you need space, you aren`t angry with your partner and that you`ll be back.
Criticize your partner, especially her appearance.
Yell at your partner as if you were her father.
Take every word she says literally. Women, when upset, tend to speak in absolutes, such as "You NEVER listen to me;" when what she really means is that you are not listening to her at that time.
Allow jealousy to erode the trust, love and respect of your relationship.
Violate her privacy.
Forget special occasions.
