Today marks Justin and I’s two-year anniversary! Time flies when you are with the right person. Feels just like yesterday when he asked me for my number while I was bartending at work and I said no the first time (and the next couple of times! He came back to visit me once a week for a month before I gave him my number). Our relationship is not perfect, but we are perfect for each other. We bicker and have disagreements from time to time, but we always work through it. Today I want to share with you 5 tips on how we were able to build a successful relationship.
1. Get Creative-
When spending time together, go on different type of dates. Instead of just sticking to dinner and movies, try bowling or rock climbing. A couple of other inexpensive activities to do together is having a picnic at a park or go canoeing together. This will keep your relationship interesting and keep your spark alive!
2. Seek to Understand-
Little arguments are inevitable. Many times, little arguments turns into a battle about whose right or wrong, or one person trying to change the other person’s opinion. Instead, look at this as an opportunity to better understand the other person and figure out why he or she might be upset.
A relationship is a two-way street. You have to meet each other half way for it to work. If he skipped a boy’s night to hang out with you, then you sure can skip a spa day to hang out with him.
4. Be Supportive-
We live in a world where people are quick to judge. Be the one to support their endeavors when everyone else is saying that it won’t work.
5. Be Transparent-
Don’t keep things bottled in. Whatever is bothering you, share it with your partner. Doesn’t matter if it is work issues or friend issues. Whatever it is, you don’t have to deal with it alone. It’s okay to be vulnerable.
Our Daniel Wellington timepieces are the perfect match for us. These efforlessly elegant watches are unique like our relationship. They offer a wide range of interchangeable bands and a watch perfect for every occasion. Daniel Wellington is the definition of unique and sophisticated.
Today is your lucky day! Use “Aimee15” to get $$ off your very own Daniel Wellington timepiece! I have on the Classic Petite in Melrose and Justin is wearing the Classic in York.
