Q) How should we define a love relationship and what are the basic efforts or things a guy must do in a relationship?
A) Love relationship is nothing but a connection between two people who are attracted to each other physically, mentally or emotionally. When two people are in a relationship, they are committed towards each other and are expected to trust, love, support, care for each other. In order to have a successful relationship, both need to respect each other before everything. If the equation between the two is similar to this, I believe it can be understood as a love relationship.
Being in a relationship is one beautiful experience to have at least once in a lifetime. It teaches you a lot of important lessons that transform your nature generally in a positive way. Yet at times, it gets complicated when people who are part of it don’t respect the other person’s efforts or there can be a number of issues depending on the situations.
The basic efforts that one must make in a relationship is not limited to the below mentioned attributes. It can vary from person to person as the preferences, interests and personality traits differ a lot. However, it all comes down to few basic attributes that are most important and almost everything revolves around these attributes and they are TRUST, RESPECT, PRIORITY and COMMUNICATION.
“I trust you” is a better compliment than “I love you” because you may not always trust the person you love but you can always love the person you trust.
Having said that, trust without a doubt plays an important role in not just the love relationships but every relationship that anyone can possibly have. It’s one of the basic expectations that men must uphold always and every time. Once it is breached, it’s very difficult to come back and repair the damage. One can only pray and hope for the best after that and if one gets lucky, swear on yourself that isn’t going to be repeated ever.
A great relationship is about two things first, find out the similarities, second respect the differences.
Respect is what every human being needs in life to enhance self growth and inner peace. When the person who claims to love you respects you as much as you do, it’s a bliss. Respect covers everything from difference of opinions and perspectives to different life choices to the efforts that one’s put up to make things good. It means to respect one’s love, little sacrifices, any action that was to support the other. Only a little is discussed about respect when people talk about relationships, but it is one of the most important factors in every relationship.
Action expresses priorities.
Priority, because actions don’t lie and one certainly acts according to what is important for them. If you are one, you will be valued. It’s as simple as that. Situations may vary, and priority may fluctuate a bit and that can be tackled. Life is too uncertain to assume things and it creates misunderstandings more often than not and that brings us to our last attribute.
The best way to solve problems and to fight against war is through dialogue.
It is as important as breathing to stay alive and rightly, it is talked about in almost every conversation. Be it interviews, life skills, any selection process, management, team work, you name it and you will find it. Be it any conflict, anything, if it involves two or more people, communication is the key. It is very important for not just men but women too to communicate as much and efficiently as they can. One who avoids this, avoids the chance of being a good partner.
All these practices are not just for men but for women too. Relationships are most beautiful when both enjoy themselves equally. Hence, it is the responsibility of both to practice these basic things to help themselves keep going stronger.
