Maintaining a Healthy Relationship

Everyone strives to have a lasting relationship, but sometimes it isn’t so easy to get. This article will help you understand the basic needs for maintaining a healthy relationship.

Finding and maintaining a lasting relationship for most people is a very difficult thing to do. Even the best relationships can go bad quickly for a number of reasons. Everyone wants a good relationship, and hopefully this article will help you learn to how to have one.

Stay Calm and Collected

No matter if you just met the person, or you’re in a relationship already, you have to make sure to stay calm and collected. If they tell you they are going to call you and don’t, don’t freak out. This is the biggest mistake that most people make. This is especially important the first time you meet someone; you don’t want to be the crazy person they just met, you want to be the person they ask their friends about later. Here are a few things to remember:

  • Stay calm – but not quiet! There is a big difference between being calm and being quiet. You don’t want to act too shy around someone if you’re interested, because it’ll make him or her think that you’re not.
  • Don’t get jealous. If you notice flirting with someone else you don’t need to make a big deal about it. Don’t try to outdo the other person, because this will just make you look arrogant.
  • Have fun! This is very important; if you’re not having fun you are less likely to being noticed.
  • Don’t go crazy. Alright, at some point all of us start have a little too much fun. You definitely don’t want to be running around too much or talking loudly if it’s not the appropriate place.


A great way to flirt with someone is to tease him or her a little bit. With that said, you don’t want to be rude in you’re teasing. Don’t laugh at them and comment on their flabby arms or big ears; say something that you know they will find funny too. Here are a few things to remember:

  • Don’t tease them too much.
  • Make sure to be nice, not rude.
  • Don’t make fun of them.

Heartfelt Compliments

Make sure to compliment them, but only when you really mean it. You don’t want to compliment them too much and smother them, because you’re compliments later won’t be worth as much. Compliment them on something spontaneously; you don’t want to compliment them just because someone else just did or because they complimented you. Mean what you say, and look at them in the eyes when you say it. Looking at a person in the eyes when you compliment them is a great idea, because it’ll help show that you really mean it.


There’s a reason everyone always talks about it: because it’s important! Communication is what really makes and breaks relationships. Make sure to tell your loved-one what’s on your mind. Remember though, you don’t want to tell them everything, like something that will hurt their feelings. However, you definitely want to tell them things that are troubling you, so that they know that you trust them. Make sure that you’re not the only one talking; let them know that they can tell you anything.

Whenever they help you with a problem let them know how much you appreciate them for their help. If they are feeling down about something and don’t want to tell you, don’t make a big deal about it. You don’t want them feeling even worse because of you. Just let them know that if they ever want your help you are there for them no matter when it is. Tell them that they if they don’t feel like talking that it’s alright, and when they are ready you will be there. If it seems serious and there is a possibility that they might harm themselves try a bit harder. If they won’t tell you don’t push them, just let them know how much you care about them.

Hopefully this article will help you in finding a healthy relationship and maintaining it. All of the above is simply a few ideas that should help you get started – if you have something that you think works better for you, that is what you should do. If you have any comments or additional ideas, be sure to leave a comment. Good luck on finding your next relationship.
