5 Secrets of Blissful Relationships

5 Secrets of Blissful Relationships

Have you ever seen a couple who had been together for 30 or 40 years and wondered what their secret was?

You’re probably aware that a blissful relationship is something difficult to come by these days. 

However, once you learn these five secrets of blissful relationships and put them into practice, you’ll amaze yourself at just how easy it can be to have a great relationship. 

1. Clear Expectations 


Clear expectations are the foundation of trust, compassion and understanding. You hear a lot of talk about trust these days, but finding a person you can trust to be in a close relationship with you is difficult. 

Contrary to common belief, dishonesty is less often the cause of mistrust than ambiguous and unclear expectations. 

If you and your partner are unclear about what the expectations of the relationship are (for both sides), you’re left with only assumptions ... and assumptions almost always lead to disappointments. We perceive them as violations of trust. 

2. Great Sex 


Maybe people don’t talk about this one much but the human body is biologically wired for sexual bliss ... and that will not change. 

While great sex isn’t a principle on which you can build an entire relationship, it adds a delightful dimension that few couples ever get to find. 

What’s the secret to having a great sex life? Foremost is open and honest communication about what each person wants. 

Biologically, sex works out pretty well and without a lot of extra effort because we’re wired that way. But making it great requires clear communication and reciprocity. And speaking of reciprocity ... 

3. Reciprocity 


There is no such thing as something for nothing, and this will apply to pretty much every area of life: your financial life, your relationships, your health, your career and your emotional wellbeing. 

If one partner is giving too much, and the other is taking too much, the relationship is always on its way downhill. 

However, if you focus on meeting your partner’s needs according to his or her expectations (instead of your own), your partner will be much more likely to reciprocate. 

Again, this is one reason clear expectations are so important. 

Many people try to practise reciprocity, but instead of giving their partner what they need, they give based on what they ASSUME they need. 

Reciprocity requires clear expectations to make a relationship blissful. 

4. Playfulness 


Life is too short to be in a relationship where you can’t have fun and be a little playful with your partner. 

One of the greatest joys in adult experience is to act a little childlike, and you need someone in your life who will share this experience with you. 

Of course, there are many different types of senses of humour. 

It’s important to find someone who thinks how you do and who finds humour in the same things. 

5. Perpetual Courtship 


Too many couples start off on a great note by working hard to please each other during the courting stage of the relationship, only to slack off once the “new” wears off. 

Make a commitment to court your partner every day of your relationship, even if you’ve been together for decades. 

This will inspire reciprocity and, together with the above four principles, will help you build a blissful relationship.

Is negativity hindering your relationship? 

Do you sometimes treat your spouse in a way that you know isn’t right? Or do you ever think “No one will ever marry me or want to be with me”?
