3 Relationship Tips
Make alone time: While this seems obvious, I am always amazed at how often couples say that they have “lots of alone time together.” Then, when asked when the last time they had a date with their partner, I get a lot of “Ummmmm… I guess it was a long time ago!”. So, do it now! Plan a night out, get the sitter and make some special time to enjoy each other.
Be Curious: Curiosity about our partner’s world tells them we care. It shows that we are interested in them, and is a portal to intimacy. Ask, “What was your favorite food when you were a kid… ” or “Can you believe the traffic on the 405? Do you remember how long it took us to get to Tahoe that one year??” You can ask what they had for lunch, or about the most challenging or most rewarding moment of their day. Genuine interest and care leads to deeper, more harmonious connection.
