How many people know how to build a lasting lesbian relationship? Where do we learn to do so? In school? At home? Here are some tips compiled on building a great relationship that you can apply to your own situation.
Safe environment for sharing and trust – No name-calling, unpleasant interruptions or threats. This will make it easier for both of you to trust and share your feelings honestly. It is hard to have a great relationship in an emotionally stressing environment.
Keep your word – Whether it is doing the shopping or mowing the lawn, always keep your agreements. All of them. If your partner cannot trust with the small things how will they trust you with being there for them till death do you part?
Ask questions – If your partner gets home late, ask where she’s been. If she no longer wants to take that long walk with you, ask her what is up. Do not make assumptions. Asking questions removes the mystery and gives your soul mate the chance to tell her side of the story. It’s better to ask too many questions than none at all.
Make time for your relationship – A relationship is like a garden, the more time you spend tending and taking care of it the more beautiful and special it becomes. Left alone it withers and turns to an ugly space nobody wants to be in. Tend your relationship by making time for each other.
Appreciation – Express gratitude to your partner for the things she does for you. For the small things like making your toast just the way you like it, for the big things like her awesome parenting skills. Let her know you see and appreciate the things she does.
