No one is perfect in life or in relationships. Relationships give couples a chance to learn about one another on a deeper level before marriage.

2. Be Appreciative of Each Other

But then, you can also do things and feel like you have to do them or someone will be disappointed in you, which frankly, it’s not as nice to receive something from someone who feels that way.
Sometimes we do things because we feel pressured that we have to do them. Most people won’t be as appreciative as they would be if you had done the very same acts with the feeling of love. This all goes back to feeling loved in different ways. Many times people feel loved when their partner does sweet gestures and things that they don’t really have to do but they do anyway to show them how much they care.

Couples shouldn’t be couples if they don’t feel enough fire and chemistry with one another. Also, if they’re not attracted to each other enough. You should feel excited and get that butterfly feeling just knowing that you’re going to see each other. Closeness and affection involve things such as holding hands, giving hugs and kisses, touching each other’s hair, etc. Once you have enough of a comfort level in your relationship, you should have an adequate amount of closeness and affection.
6. Be Best Friends
Be each other’s best friend, backbone, biggest fan, support system, and person who you go to confide in or share things with whether good or bad. Have each other’s backs – no matter what. Give each other the benefit of the doubt – instead of the mistake many couples make of assuming the worst or believing whatever they hear. Trust your instinct as well as your love.
Share with each other. You should each be the first person that you both go to when you have genuinely great news or want to share something authentically exhilarating with. And of course, being very close to one another at heart takes time spent. Spend time with each other, talk to each other whenever you can, and give each other enough attention – which by the way, is another way that people feel loved.
