January is peak season for both gyms and dating sites. Many long for a fresh start and perhaps there is also a need for it in long-term relationships? Below we list New Year’s resolutions that will give you a better love life, whether you’re single or in a relationship!

Be a good listener

Think about how you are as a listener. People like to feel seen and a good way to make others feel good is to listen and show a genuine interest. If you notice that you often focus on yourself, you can try to take a step back and think about how to become a better conversation partner. As a first step, you can start by asking counter-questions and putting the phone down. Communication is the key to a successful relationship!

Don’t take others for granted

It’s easy to start taking things for granted, not least your partner. Try to change your outlook and to feel daily gratitude for your partner or other close relationships. Highlight to yourself how they enrich your life and make sure to do the same back.

Have regular dates

Even if you’re in a relationship, it’s a smart trick to keep dating alive, that way you can continue to build excitement and attraction between each other with a simple means. If you are single, you can also try investing in daring to venture into the dating life, suddenly it happens!

Set high (and reasonable) demands

Make high demands on yourself and your relationship, but at the same time try to be reasonable. Differences can be positive and it is important to be lenient. However, it can be an advantage to be flexible and open-minded, as long as you both make each other feel good. It is never okay to be treated badly, if you notice such warning signs you must take them seriously.

Show empathy towards the world around you

Try to see things from other people’s perspective. Consider each other and make an effort to understand each other. This of course applies to both of you, a relationship is based on trust and equality.

Be honest

Honesty is the cornerstone of a well-functioning relationship. If you do not trust each other, it is difficult to make the relationship work. Tell how you feel and try not to act passive-aggressively.
