Ah, who doesn’t love a fresh start?  If you know that you’ve been neglecting your relationship, it’s time to make 2018 the year you put the spark back into things.  You owe it to your partner and yourself.  Today, our Portland dating service is going to show you a few dating resolutions you must make to better your relationship in the new year.

  1. Make a Relationship Check-In

 

In 2018, make time to check in with your partner.  During this check-in, ask your partner how they feel about the relationship and where they think things could improve.  You also want to use this time to share your feelings with them.  Too often, people get caught up in the daily grind and forget that their relationship needs time and affection.  Rather than sitting back and assuming what’s going on in your partner’s head, ask them instead.  Take time to ensure that your love life is going in the right direction.

  1. Be Supportive of Their Goals

 

Whether your partner made a few resolutions, like losing weight or getting healthy, make sure you’re supportive of their choices.  It’s hard enough to go to the gym when everyone is heading out for happy hour.  And if you’re not showing support to your partner, they’re not going to stick to their resolutions.  Be sure you’re their number one cheerleader.

  1. Surprise Each Other

 

Whether you just started dating or are in a long-term relationship or marriage, make an effort to surprise your partner every now and then.  It can be as simple as leaving them a note in their drawer telling them how much you love them, picking up their favorite coffee in the morning, or sending them a bouquet of flowers at their work, it’s the little things that matter most.  And it’s those little things that will go a long way in bringing the spark back to your relationship.

  1. Make Time for Love

 

At the end of the day it’s easy to get caught up with work and everyday responsibilities and neglect your relationship.  But it’s crucial to make time for your partner.  Whether it’s setting aside an hour or two in the evening to watch TV shows or setting up a day for date night each week, your need to make your relationship your number one priority.  The relationship with your partner needs to be cherished every day, so start treating it as a priority.

  1. Shower Them with Kindness

 

Don’t ever let a day go by without telling your partner how much they mean to you.  We know how easy it is to feel frustrated from everyday responsibilities, but if you neglect telling your partner how much they mean to you, they might start assuming that you no longer care for them.  Don’t ever let a day go by without letting them know you appreciate them.

Of course, there are many more resolutions worth making in the new year—from getting on the same page when it comes to finances to learning how to fix problems and having more fun together.  Use these five resolutions and we promise you that you and your partner will have a happier and healthier relationship this year.
