  • Rule 1: The ghost of relationship past

    Of course, it is alright to talk about things once. Let your partner know they yes they made a mistake and it hurt you. But once you say "I accept your apology" or "Let's work past this", that means NEVER use it against them in future arguments. It is a hit below the belt and it shows that even though you said you forgave them, you really didn't. Remember, everyone makes mistakes. We are human. And if this mistake is too horrible to forgive and forget, then obviously it's time to leave

  • Rule 2: Anger hibernation

    This is one of the worst things you can do. Trying to avoid the awkwardness of making up after a fight by going to sleep only hurts you more. You will wake up feeling worse than you did the night before. If you are fighting, go into separate rooms and calm down. Then, once you feel ready, sit down and talk it out. You'll feel so much better and you can go to bed with things resolved.

  • Rule 3: It takes two

    No partner should ever give more of themselves to the relationship than the other. It should be a 50/50 relationship. You cannot last long going on like this because sooner or later one of you will explode with anger. Always give your all.

  • Rule 4: Get a room!

    While many frown upon PDA, you should not let that stop you. I am not saying to stick your tongue down their throat in the middle of a store (gross mental image, right? Lol). But hold their hand, give them a kiss every once and a while. This lets others know that yes you are together without going overboard and making people uncomfortable

  • Rule 5: R-E-S-P-E-C-T

    Respect. This is one of the biggest problems that people have today. Many people believe that do not have to give others respect unless they are respected. If your partner is in a bad mood and snaps, don't take it to heart. Everyone has their days. Treat others the way you would wanna be treated but also remember, you've probably snapped before and your partner understood. Also, respect that you are committed to this person. Speak highly of them and stay faithful

  • Rule 6: Don't pop my bubble!

    Do not belittle your partners hopes and dreams. They obviously share them with you because they can trust you. Encourage them and be their number one fan. Making them realize that what they love to do is as important to you as it is to them will give them the confidence they need to chase their dreams.

  • Rule 7: All up in my Koolaid

    Yes, you are allowed to love your partner but understand they need space just as much as you do. You need to spend time apart in order to grow stronger as a couple. Do not take it personally if your partner says "I need some alone time". Also, if they want to hang out with friends alone do not take offense to it. You do not have to always be with each other.

  • Rule 8: Surprise!!

    Be spontaneous. Plan a special night out for you and your partner. Not only does this wow them but it lets them know you do care for them very much. It does not have to be a expensive to be an amazing night. Get creative!

  • Rule 9: What are you, 5?

    It is a wonderful feeling to be able to let loose. Do not always be so uptight and serious with your partner. Letting your inner child out will make your relationship stronger and also make everything a lot more fun! Being able to be carefree together will definitely put a smile on both of your faces

  • Rule 10: The "I love you" rule

    This rule is my favorite. I don't use it for just relationships. Whenever someone is leaving the house or you are about to hang up the phone, remember to say I love you. You never know when anyone's last day is. One thing we are not guaranteed in this life is time. Make sure they know you love them by telling them often
