I hear people often say relationships are complicated and difficult. Let’s this evening with a different approach. Let’s keep it simple and keep one rule in mind.
*Do things that bring your partner close*
That’s right! We’re talking about “putting the seat down”, returning calls and texts, being punctual, complimenting your partner, bathing the kids, turning the tv off for a night!
So for all of you out there that are in trying to get your relationship moving in the right direction, constantly ask yourself this week – do my actions bring my partner close or push them away? If it turns them off – stop doing it.
