17 Brilliant Pieces Of Love Advice That Will Strengthen Your Relationship

Relationships can be tricky. You need to make sure you’re treating your person right – and that they’re treating you right too. Here are some pieces of advice that could strengthen your relationship:

“In relationships, how you fight is more important than what you fight about. The argument can be about dishes but if you end up insulting each other to the point that it makes you feel like crap, your relationship will either not last or grow to be very bitter. You critique the behavior, not destroy someone’s self-worth.” — Elly2014

“Don’t be afraid to be the one that loves more. If you spend too much time trying to evaluate how much you love them vs how much they love you, you’re gonna have a bad time.” — viashno

“The best relationships are split 60-40. It’s just both people should strive for the 60.” — jinxes_are_pretend

“Go to bed angry. There’s no point in arguing until you’re both exhausted, it’ll only make it worse. You’ll only end up upset and tired, which will compound the problem. Go to bed, get some sleep, and revisit the issue when you have a clearer head.” — QueenAnneBoleynTudor

“If they love you almost nothing will stop them from being with you. It may sting, but you need to give up on that person who can’t decide whether or not they want to be with you.” — FusRoDoodles

“During an argument don’t insult the other person. The argument will end but the other person will not forget what you called them.” — PM_ME_TINY_DINOSAURS

“Ask yourself, ‘If I didn’t want to sleep with them would I want to be friends with them?’ If the answer is no then there’s something wrong, very wrong. Either you don’t have shared interests, goals or character fundamentals or you’re only with them for that attraction spark.” — PepperFinn

“It’s not me vs you. It’s us vs the problem.” — fro0ot

“If you put someone on a pedestal, you force them to look down on you.” — renovanhest

“Don’t be afraid to get off the bus because there’s always another one coming.” — [deleted]

“Continue to love them on the days you don’t like them.” — theanxiousknitter

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.” — Back2Bach

“Never search for someone that ‘completes’ you. You should be whole by yourself. A relationship isn’t supposed to be a solution to a problem.” — JVMMs

“If me or my partner feel an argument is getting out of hand, one of us will say ‘pause.’ We stop arguing and take a break, talk about something else, eat some food, have sex etc. By the time one of us decides to unpause it is usually a lot less intense and can be resolved very quickly. Got the idea from How I Met Your Mother and it really helps.” — [deleted]

“Breakups where there’s nothing particularly wrong with the person in question — no specific thing you could put your finger on — but a sort of low-level dissatisfaction that has compounded over time until you realize that you’re both making each other miserable and would be better off with other people. It’s awful at the time, because you never feel like you’ve got a good enough reason to break things off, and why be sad now when you can be, you know, sort of happy… ish? If you squint… forever? Someone can be a good person and at the same time not the right person for you is a big turning point in how you view relationships: not as something that can be topped up with grand romantic gestures, but as a long journey you make with someone who — at least, in theory — should help you be the best version of yourself. Relationships take work, yes, but at the same time sometimes a fresh start is better for all involved.” — KingCon5

“Do not compare yourself to other couples too much. Every person is different and so are most relationships.” — ChiliAndGold

“It’s never easy, but it should never be that hard.” — Wheres_Wally
