That means there’s work to do to make it last. If you’re willing to put in the effort, here’s what to focus on:
- Work out the communications issues.
- Set realistic expectations for the two of you. Hint: nothing is perfect!
- Try new things together regularly.
- Clear out your emotional baggage. That was then, this is now.
- Explore your partner’s interests.
- Create a daily connecting ritual.
- Accept your partner’s quirks.
