In order for your relationship to go the distance, there are a few things you should bear in mind. For tips on how to keep the connection between you and your other half happy and healthy, keep reading.

  1. Communication is key

Having a clear channel of communication between you and your partner is a must if you want your relationship to go from strength to strength. Holding back how you really feel will only store up trouble, so it’s best to be open and honest no matter what. There are a number of subjects you might find difficult to bring up in conversation, and you might be tempted to bury your head in the sand in the hope that the problem will go away on its own. However, the truth is, this could make matters even worse.

For instance, if you’re struggling with an intimate health condition, you might feel too embarrassed to speak up. This is the case for a lot of guys who are suffering with erectile dysfunction (ED) – the inability to get or maintain an erection. Despite it being a common problem among men, some guys have trouble talking about it. However, disregarding ED could not only hinder your sex life, but it could affect your overall wellbeing too. ED can be a sign that you have an underlying health problem like heart disease, so it’s vital that you speak up. If you or your partner is suffering with ED, booking an appointment with your doctor will help, and you could do your own research online by visiting reputable websites such as where you can access information, advice and effective prescription treatments.

  1. Never go to bed angry

‘Never go to bed angry’ is a piece of relationship advice that’s been passed down through the generations – and it remains as relevant as ever. While it might not happen very often, if you and your partner have an argument, try and sort out your issues before you head to bed. Going to sleep in a bad mood will only mean you wake up feeling the same way, leaving your argument unresolved and getting your day off to a bad start. So, if you happen to bicker with your other half and it’s nearing bedtime, try to talk out your problems before you hit the hay.

  1. Make time for each other

It’s no secret that spending quality time with your other half is a key part of maintaining a strong, happy relationship. However, this is often easier said than done, especially if you and your partner spend a lot of time at work, looking after your kids or socialising with friends. Making time for each other gives you the opportunity to reconnect, so it’s important that you find a slot in your busy schedules to enjoy one another’s company once in a while.

For example, you could organise a romantic date night. Whether you choose to see the latest flick at the cinema or you cook a delicious meal at home, spending some alone time together could help reignite the spark in your relationship.

Following these three pieces of advice should help you and your other half enjoy a long and happy future together.
