There are a variety of things that you need in order to maintain a successful relationship with your significant other.

Most of these things or qualities should come naturally, but if you need some help/guidance toward the right direction of where you should take your relationship next, then you have come to the right place.

It is important that you recognize when you or your partner are unhappy with one another. The unhappier they are, the more obvious it will become that there are some issues that need to be dealt with first.

The first thing you must do is be willing to listen as to what your partner has to tell you what they need in order for this relationship to work.

If you are unwilling to cooperate, then communication will prove to be difficult and make it that much harder for you both to come to an understanding with one another.

It is important for you to recognize that you are not only your partners lover but you are their best friend out of everyone else they know too.

They spend just as much time with you then they would their regular friends, so this means that you should be willing to understand them on a personal level simply because you both have so much in common.

Be there for your partner, show them that you are willing to listen and show them that you are willing to come to a resolution for the sake of your friendship as well as relationship.
