Melbourne, August 25: If your notion of a loving relationship is derived from romantic movies, then you will be shocked to know that much more efforts are required in a relationship, than just romantic dates and mid-night kisses.
First of all you should start by paying more attention to your tone when you talk to your partner on in general, as people respond well to a soft tone and immediately get hostile or defensive towards a harsh one, News.com.au reported.
It is also important to communicate your own needs, hopes and expectations in your relationship, but it's equally crucial to hear your partner too without getting defensive.
While arguing, make sure that you sort out your issues sooner than later and try to see the other person's perspective.
And, you should always value your relationship over the smaller issues and stay invested in a relationship, by spending time together. (ANI)
