If your relationship is on rocky ground and you have been together for any length of time, chances are you have drifted apart because of familiarity with each other. This is common in all relationships and is very easy to over come and recover from.
The best thing to do to get the full picture of how to keep a relationship new and exciting is to pick up some books on relationships and read them. For the purpose of this article I am going to try and give you a snapshot, just keep in mind there is a lot you can do to revitalize a relationship.
The first thing you will need to do to make her happy in order to save a relationship is show respect toward your girlfriend. I know you respect her but, are you still showing it like you did when you first met? Probably not, the showing goes away as you get more and more comfortable in the relationship.
If you are living together, one way you can show respect is by helping your girlfriend around the house. If she is the one that does all the cooking, cleaning, and laundry, then show her respect by helping out once in a while.
If you can’t cook then at least set the table, or clean up after dinner for her, don’t have a dishwasher, help out with the dishes. Some woman may not let their boyfriends help with cleaning the house because they feel you may not do the job well enough for them, so what you can do, is to make sure to pick up after yourself. Your girlfriend is not a nurse maid so do not treat her like one, it won’t hurt you to put your dirty clothes in the hamper or your dirty dishes in the sink or dishwasher.
Woman love to talk and not just about anything, they love to talk about feelings. When was the last time you sat down to a romantic dinner and just talked about how you feel about each other? I am willing to bet it has been quite a while or you would not be looking for a way to be nice to your girlfriend in order to save a relationship. Need I say more? If you want to grow old and grey together then you need to get back to the beginning and do what the two of you did when you first met.
Go out regularly on romantic dates and open up to each other, think back to when you first met, I know you did it back then because that is how all relationships start. That is how you get to know each other and because with the passing of time people change it becomes important to always continue the openness and communication between the two of you.
Those couples that do this on a regular basis end up together for many years with a minimum of problems and have strong long-lasting relationship.
