Keep Space For Changes
Once you set up your relationship goals, somewhere down the line, you may think of changing it or realise that it was slightly challenging to manage. Goals like ‘staying healthy together’ may drain you if your partner initially agreed to it but has decided to slack off.
Discuss The Goals With Your Partner
While you may want to vacation with them twice a year at an exotic location, is this something that your partner would wish to as well? Your relationship goals need to be communicated to your partner before you decide to achieve them.
Keep Them Real And Achievable
It is very easy to get swayed by romantic movies and have them as our guide for the goals. But remember, relationships are hard work. Having a goal, such as not fighting, is not only unrealistic but also harmful. Healthy couples have healthy fights.
Allow Celebration Of Small Moments
It’s quite easy to not think of those small moments that happen in our lives. The moments that express tender love and care for each other may pass by unacknowledged.
Add The Fun Element
Set up some fun goals to keep the relationship feeling fresh. This could be playing a video game once a month with your bae or hosting a dinner party for friends. This way, you make sure that both you and your partner enjoy each other’s company.
